Good Grief in Lottawatah by Evelyn David is the eight book in the “Brianna Sullivan” mystery series. February 2012
In Good Grief in Lottawatah, Brianna’s first day on the job in the town funeral home is full of surprises, including ghosts with complaints and the unexpected murder of Lottawatah’s richest and crabbiest citizen. Now that she’s got a job and health insurance, it’s time to turn up the heat on her romance with hunky deputy Cooper Jackson. But Brianna’s life is upended when her globe-trotting mother descends on Lottawatah, charming all the men in town and even capturing the heart of Leon, the adorable and digestively-challenged bulldog. Can Brianna survive both a killer and her mother? Good Grief in Lottawatah continues Brianna Sullivan’s adventures in Lottawatah, a town filled with more than its share of unruly ghosts and quirky humans.
I love this series and look forward to all the exciting adventures Brianna has with her ghosts. Brianna finally has a full-time job, at of all places, a funeral home and on top of that, her mother arrives for a visit. In this caper, a killer is lurking among the mourners and Brianna gets some unexpected help from all involved. With characters that are adorably quirky, the feel of a small town and entertaining dialogue, this page-turning mystery is a terrific and fun read and like fine wine, this series keeps getting better and better and I can’t wait for my next visit with Brianna and the gang.
