Overview

Imagine spending eternity with your backside hanging out—that's what Emma Whitecastle and Granny Apples can't help but think when they meet the ghost of Tessa North frolicking in the surf off Catalina Island. Tessa, a young starlet who died on the island in the 1960s wearing nothing but a polka dot bikini, won't cross over until "Curtis" comes for her. To help the winsome, bikini-clad spirit, Emma and Granny must find out who Curtis is and how Tessa died. Their investigation takes them from the grit and glamour of Hollywood to Kennedy-era political intrigue-before hitting dangerously close to home.

Along with a sprinkling of history, this spirited new mystery series features the amateur sleuth team of Emma Whitecastle and the spirit of her pie-baking great-great-great-grandmother, Granny Apples.

While enjoying a Thanksgiving getaway with boyfriend Phil Bowers on Catalina Island, ghost whisperer Emma Whitecastle encounters a bikini-clad ghost in Jaffarian's spirited second Ghost of Granny Apples mystery (after 2009's Ghost à la Mode). Tessa North, a Hollywood starlet who died on Catalina soon after Bobby Kennedy was assassinated in Los Angeles in 1968, claims to be waiting for the return of "Curtis" before she can pass on to the other side. Emma and Granny Apples (aka Ish Reynolds), Emma's ghost great-great-great-grandmother, set out to learn more about Curtis and the circumstances of Tessa's death. Meanwhile, Emma's probe into the Tessa haunting for her paranormal TV show, The Whitecastle Report, leads to a stabbing murder and the revelation of secrets of Emma's former father-in-law, director and producer George Whitecastle. Fans of paranormal cozies will find a lot to like. (Feb.)
