The Chick and the Dead is a great follow up to The Don of the Dead. This mystery picks up right where the last one left off. Pepper Martin works at Garden View cemetery and has the sometimes annoying ability to see and talk to the dead. Especially those who need her help to move on. This particular mystery involves two sisters and what can happen when greed overcomes morals. This book was hard to put down. Though the outcome always seemed obvious, I never felt 100% certain of the outcome of the book. I finished this one in a day and it was worth it!

I can't say enough fabulous things about this series. Here, Pepper Martin, finds herself speaking with a ghost from the fifties who wrote a novel that became a mega sucess only to have her sister credited for being the 'talented' author. The ghost needs to be proven the author in order to provide financial resources from her orphaned grandaughter, who is in foster care. Pepper Martin, is a quirky, fun character, who wants to be shallow a little, but is sensitive, compassionate, determined, funny, and smart. This is a character whose smarts are often an afterthought. She definitely is led by her heart. The first two stories literally flew by as the stories never had a boring part, and scenes with the ghosts are aplenty. The rapport between Pepper and her deceased clients is the shining star of success in the series. Its hard to resist the charm of Pepper trying her best to resist the ghosts. Again, the softer side of Pepper is her downfall. To complete the rounding out of a five star review is the fact that the mystery is good enough to not be completely figured out before its reveal, AND even more so the fact that this is the second volume and has remained true to its pilot, plot, and narrative. This is at least as good as the first story and the only thing missing was the Don himself. How have these books been so overlooked? Amazing, I can't sing its praises enough.

Pepper Martin sees dead people. This time it's the sister of an author who is coming to visit who believes that the author has wronged her. Trouble is that the only job Pepper has is helping this author. It's fun, Pepper is a fun character with lots of attitude who really sparkles.

Who did write the world renowned novel So Far the Dawn? According to Didi,Pepper's latest ghostly companion, she did but it is her sister who has been getting all the credit and acclaim all these years. So Pepper sets off to prove Didi's authorship and maybe solve a couple of murders.

Another good book. I do wish Pepper would confide in Quinn already..... also, kind of tired of Dan and whatever he is? I will be reading the next book asap. ...................................................................................................
