Ghost in the Guacamole (Ghost of Granny Apples Series #5) by Sue Ann Jaffarian

When two sisters feud over the family business, medium Emma Whitecastle doesn’t need a Ouija board to know it spells trouble. But with a little help from the spirited ghost of Granny Apples, she may be able to solve one murder and prevent another . . .

Sisters Lucinda and Ricarda Ricardo—better known as Lucy and Rikki—are at each other’s throats over the family business, Roble Foods. Lucy wants to sell and Rikki is against it. Rikki asks Emma to contact their deceased father, Felix, to help her convince Lucy not to sell.

But the ghost of Felix Ricardo has his own bombshell to drop—his death was not an accident, and Rikki’s life may be in danger if the girls don’t sell. Now it’s up to Emma and Granny Apples to chip away at the mystery and stop a killer from double dipping in death . . .

Ghosts, Secrets, and Mexican Food Emma Whitecastle doesn’t quite know what to expect when she shows up at Restaurante Roble on Olvera Street in Los Angeles.  An acquaintance from her yoga class has asked her to meet there, and Emma assumes it is about ghosts since that’s what Emma is known for.  So she and the ghost of her great-great-great grandmother, Granny, go to find out how they can help.   When Emma meets with Rikki Ricardo, she learns the young woman is trying to hang on to the family’s restaurant and Mexican food business.  Her older sister Lucy is determined to sell, and Rikki wants help contacting the ghost of her father, Felix, to get advice on how to convince Lucy to change her mind.  Only when Felix’s ghost makes an appearance, he insists that Rikki needs to consent to the sale or wind up like him.  Is Rikki’s life in danger?  Was Felix murdered?  With many of the employees acting strangely, who can be trusted?   I absolutely loved this book, getting so hooked on it I was late to an ultimate Frisbee game.  I just had to know what was happening.  The characters are so strong they leapt off the page at me.  Emma is surrounded by a great family, and I just loved spending more time with them.  The new characters were just as strong, which really drew me into the story.  And the plot!  I enjoyed this different riff on a traditional mystery with such strong conflict between characters I never wanted to put the book down.  The twists kept me confused until the wonderful ending.  Yet Granny provided some great comic relief that helped lighten the mood.   I can’t say enough about this wonderful book.  Whether you’ve met Emma and Granny before or not, you are in for a treat when you pick up this book.   NOTE: I was given a copy of this book.  My opinion is still my own.
