5th in series
I fou nd this book to be a bit more enjoyable than the previous others. pepper has finally accepted her gift of talking to the dead, and refined her methods of sleuthing. She finally quit using the excuse she was writing a book in order to gather information.
In this episode we learn from Peppers boss, Ella, that she will be the leader of a team of workers (criminals on probation) and star on a reality show "Cemetary Survivor" On the show they work together to restore the Monroe Street Cememary. There, she meets a ghost named Lamar, who begs Pepper to help clear his name so he can move on. Lamar was a former prison warden, and was covicted of brutally murdering his secretary (Vera Blaine) some 25 years ago. On his first night as a prisoner, he died of a heart attack.
Now working in the cemetary where Lamar is burried, Pepper has to fish out the clues, restore the cemetary, and try to keep her boyfriend Quin, in the dark about her abilities. While during some investigating on the wrong side of the tracks, one of her teammates is murdered, Pepper has to be extra careful, as someone is trying desperately to keep her from uncovering the truth.
I thought this book was great. Pepper does a great job finding the real murderer, and there is quite a bit of humor thrown in. The ending was completely shocking!!!
I cant wait till the next installment.
