There’s a ghost on the loose–and a fox in the henhouse. Four years ago, the Eternal Slumber Funeral Home put Chicken Teater in the ground. Now undertaker Emma Lee Raines is digging him back up. The whole scene is bad for business, especially with her granny running for mayor and a big festival setting up in town. But ever since Emma Lee started seeing ghosts, Chicken’s been pestering her to figure out who killed him. With her handsome boyfriend, Sheriff Jack Henry Ross, busy getting new forensics on the old corpse, Emma Lee has time to look into her first suspect. Chicken’s widow may be a former Miss Kentucky, but the love of his life was another beauty queen: Lady Cluckington, his prize-winning hen. Was Mrs. Teater the jealous type? Chicken seems to think so. Something’s definitely rotten in Sleepy Hollow—and Emma Lee just prays it’s not her luck.

4 out of 5 stars ARC for Review

Emma Lee Raines finds herself once again being revisited with Chicken Teater ghost.  He thinks his wife murdered him and wants Emma to solve his death despite the death certificate said he died of pneumonia by his doctor.

While Emma and Chicken investigate his death all evidence points to his wife a former Miss Kentucky; especially, when Chicken reveals she would get a  piece of land, if she takes care of his prize hen Lady Cluckington as she was planning to divorce him before his death since she was jealous of his hen whom he treated better than her.

Getting his body exhumed after four years while her boyfriend Sherriff Jack Henry Ross looks into forensic evidence as they work on solving the case.  Will he once again come rushing to her aid when she gets too close to the truth?

All is not what it seems as things get out of hand.  Another winner in the Emma Lee series as we enjoy the read.
