When Pepper arrives at Cleveland’s Monroe Street Cemetery to help with a restoration project, she learns, to her dismay, that there’s going to be a contest to restore the cemetery grounds. Even worse — it’s going to be the basis of a local reality TV show, Cemetery Survivor.

One team will be made up of genteel Historical Society ladies and the other — Pepper’s group — will be convicts on probation. Pepper Martin in prison stripes? Now that’s a crime against fashion.

There’s also a ghost waiting for Pepper at Monroe Street. He claims he was wrongly convicted of killing a young woman. But it seems there’s quite a bit he’s not revealing.

Pepper agrees to try to clear his name, but digging for the truth could put her in grave danger . . .

Introducing sleuth Pepper Martin . . .

And now, in her fourth hip, quirky mystery, she’s all ours.

Pepper Martin, heiress — turned cemetery-tour-guide, often has her hands full with two hotties and the ghosts who won’t let her rest — or work, or shop — in peace.

Now the specter of a young woman in a lab coat wants Pepper’s help. Before the woman died, she worked with a sexy, mysterious doctor who coincidentally once saved Pepper’s life — and who the woman claims is now in danger. But Pepper doesn’t know that there’s more to the story, including a devious doctor — and an obsessive, crazy love.

Cemetery tour guide Pepper Martin never imagined she’d get to meet rock legend Damon Curtis, the bad boy poet who made millions of teenage girls scream. After all, he kicked the bucket years before she was born.

But thanks to her newfound ability to chat up the dead, Pepper’s got a front row seat perfect for swooning over the still-sexy Damon’s latest lyrics. He’s convinced that his former bandmate Vinnie Pallucci murdered him back in ’71, and he’s promised Pepper she won’t get any rest or peace until she helps him prove it.

But when Pepper goes behind the music, she finds Vinnie with a knife in his heart and the rest of the band members running for their lives. And if Pepper doesn’t snare the killer soon, Damon’s next hit from the great beyond might be her swan song.

Ever since the former rich girl-turned-Cleveland cemetery tour guide banged her head on a headstone, she sees dead people. Worse still, she hears them — and they won’t shut up!

Now it’s Didi Bowman, a poodle-skirted relic from the Great Beyond, who’s bending Pepper’s ear, complaining that her famous author sister, Merilee, has done her wrong. Trouble is, if Pepper proves it, she’ll break the hearts of millions of Merilee’s fans. And if she doesn’t, Didi’s ghost may never go away.

Pepper needs peace and quiet (and rent money), so the cash-strapped ex-heiress agrees to take a job as Merilee’s secretary and dig around the family tree.

But when she unearths more than she bargained for — like an illegitimate daughter, a bunch of illicit love affairs, and a possible murder — suddenly a very poisoned pen is all set to write Pepper out of the story permanently.

She sees dead people

Beautiful, smart, and chic, Pepper Martin never had to work a day in her life — until her surgeon daddy was convicted of fraud, her wealthy fiance took a powder, and the family fortune ran bone dry.

Suddenly desperate, the inexperienced ex-rich girl was forced to take the only job she could get: as a tour guide in a cemetery. But a grave situation took a turn for the worse when a head-on collision with a headstone left her with an unwanted ability to communicate with the disgruntled deceased . . . and now Pepper has a whacked Mafia don demanding that she hunt down his killers — and threatening to haunt her until she does.
