Men are confusing, alive or dead.
Imogene Lynch, assistant to the head embalmer at Greener Pastures Mortuary, feels the final sensations of the deceased when she touches their hair. So, why did she get a hit from a 200-year-old skull?
When an earthquake reveals a long-hidden tomb under the historic San Juan Capistrano Mission. El—the night watchman at the mortuary and her new flame—sneaks her in to see it. When Imogene stumbles into a mound of bones and dislodges a skull, she’s plagued by an itching attack that won’t quit until she discovers who killed the cranium’s owner. But how do you solve a crime that happened centuries ago?
If you can imagine Agatha Raisin as a twenty-something, rockabilly, ex-hairstylist with a weird connection to the dead, this book is for you.
Nothing says romance like his and hers caskets.
Imogene Lynch has decorated the chapel for Greener Pastures’ first wedding-funeral, but on the morning of the big event, one casket is empty. Has the bride gotten cold feet? Or has someone absconded with her?
The spirits aren’t talking, but they are making Imogene’s life a misery. When the police suspect the mortuary’s head embalmer of stealing the corpse to sell on the black market, she and El, the hunky night watchman, realize it’s up to them to find the missing body.
Their search leads to a berserker Viking cult, obnoxious frat boys, and a pirate bar, among other dangers. But Imogene and El are determined to reunite the deceased couple, or die trying.
If you can imagine Agatha Raisin as a twenty-something, rockabilly ex-hairdresser with a weird connection to the dead, this book is for you.

I’m addicted to Greta Boris’s fast-paced, twisty stories with characters that I feel by the end of the book are my best friends. Not the villains—those I hope never to meet outside these pages.—Emma Bain, Book Reviewer
