Ghost In The Guacamole: A Granny Apples Mystery by Sue Ann Jaffarian - Book Review

Ghost in the Guacamole

About The Book:

When two sisters feud over the family business, medium Emma Whitecastle doesn’t need a Ouija board to know it spells trouble. But with a little help from the spirited ghost of Granny Apples, she may be able to solve one murder and prevent another . . .

Sisters Lucinda and Ricarda Ricardo—better known as Lucy and Rikki—are at each other’s throats over the family business, Roble Foods. Lucy wants to sell and Rikki is against it. Rikki asks Emma to contact their deceased father, Felix, to help her convince Lucy not to sell.
But the ghost of Felix Ricardo has his own bombshell to drop—his death was not an accident, and Rikki’s life may be in danger if the girls don’t sell. Now it’s up to Emma and Granny Apples to chip away at the mystery and stop a killer from double dipping in death . . .

My Thoughts:

Author Sue Ann Jaffarian brings back her feisty ghost of a heroine Granny Apples in her latest book, "Ghost In The Guacamole," and it's party time for every one - well, everyone except the ghost of Felix Ricardo, a restaurant owner whose death may not have been an accident!  So it's up to Granny and her psychic granddaughter Emma to help unravel the mystery of Felix's death before another member of the Ricardo family finds themselves in deathly trouble. 

I really enjoy the Granny Apples mystery series, and this installment is as hot as a ghost pepper (pun intended!).  Not only is there a spicy mystery to solve, but Emma's romantic life gets a little boost in this story as well. Plus the character of Granny Apples is just a hoot, always poking her ghostly nose in places it doesn't belong - but the irascible little lady gets the job done - all in the name of helping Emma!

I think "Ghost In The Guacamole" is Sue Ann Jaffarian's best book to date, and I can't wait for her next one in this series!
