Overview

Sisters Tessa and Lainey Garcia weren’t on speaking terms. But now that Tessa’s dead, her wisecracking ghost is making up for lost time.

Lainey Garcia left Texas nine years ago after her sister Tessa married the only man Lainey ever loved. So when Tessa’s house explodes, the last thing anyone expects is for her to appear to Lainey . . . as a ghost.

Formerly a part owner of the biggest vineyard in the region, Tessa’s got the goods on every fake, floozy, and two-faced liar in town. But Tessa doesn’t know who killed her, and she asks the remaining Garcia girls to uncover the truth. Setting out to fulfill their sassy sibling’s wish from beyond the grave, the sisters discover a mile-wide list of suspects who wanted Tessa dead. Learning the hard way that killers don’t like snoops, Lainey fears she’ll be the next Garcia sent to the big vineyard in the sky.

Praise:
“[A] promising first.”—Publishers Weekly

"Lipperman delivers a satisfying paranormal, not-quite-cozy mystery with plenty of bodies, an abundance of plot twists, and a little humor courtesy of the otherworldly Tessa."—Booklist Online

“Entertaining, wickedly hilarious, and thoroughly addictive . . . a spectacular reading experience.”—Diane Morasco, Seattle Post-Intelligencer

Publishers Weekly
Lipperman (Liver Let Die and two other Clueless Cook mysteries) introduces Lainey Garcia, a TV talk show hostess in Savannah, Ga., in the promising first of her Dead Sister Talking series. Lainey is contemplating an offer to fill an anchor slot with a network affiliate in Tampa, Fla., when she receives word that her estranged sister, Tessa, has died in an explosion, possibly caused by a gas leak in Tessa’s house. Back home in Vineyard, Tex., Lainey reunites with her three surviving sisters and learns that Tessa was murdered. At the funeral home, while Lainey is trying to hide her conflicted feelings about her deceased sister, Tessa’s ghost appears to her—but not to the other sisters. Soon, Lainey and Tessa’s shade set out to identify the killer and stop him before he can strike again. Conflict between Lainey’s current beau, who visits from Savannah, and an old boyfriend add romantic tension. Agent: Christine Witthohn, Book Cents Literary Agency. (May)
