How much fun is this series? They don't last long on Mt Git'r'Read when it gets there. I would love to be friends with Pepper Martin and my respect for her character grows with each book. She's busy in this one with the restoration of a cemetary and finds out that there is going to be a reality show pitting two teams against each other showing their talents. One team is from Pepper's old life of privilege and Peppers' team is...um...not. And there's a ghost...one accused of murder and he wants Pepper to help clear his name. It's a romp and well done.

Pepper is just recovering from her last adventure when she is assigned to work on a restoration at the Monroe Street Cemetery. This is really not so bad until she finds out that the restoration is being turned into a reality show, Cemetery Survivor, by the local PBS channel. So now she is the captain one of the teams, which just happens to be made up of a group of folks who are all on probation. Oh, well, it could be worse. Enter the ghost of Jefferson Lamar, pleading with her to clear him of the murder he had been convicted of in 1985. Grrrreat!!!This is a wonderful series. Pepper is really developing nicely and learning to deal with her own issues as well as those of the departed. I really enjoyed the folks on her team and I hope we might see some of them again.

"Dead Man Talking" is the fifth Pepper Martin mystery. The series follows an ex-socialite whose family is suddenly in disgrace (her father is actually in jail) and Pepper must work to make a living for herself. She finds herself getting a job in a cemetary. After a konk on the head she can suddenly see and communicate with...tada! Ghosts!. My favorite things about this series to date has been the interactions with Pepper and her ghosts...and the fact that Pepper just has a huge heart. She is very impetuous and doesn't think dangerous things through but she sure does what she does with her own type of flair. I actually wasn't as impressed by the fourth book as I was by the first three and I was more than pleases to see that "Dead Man Talking" had all the great traits as the first three. Plus I could really root for the ghost in this book as well and that was hard to impossible in book four "Night Of the Loving Dead" Here Pepper is faced with a ghost who hasn't been murdered, like most of her previous customers. This man claims he was framed for the murder of his young and pretty co-worker. So that he can rest in peace and so that his wife (who is still alive)can have closure. Complicating (or rather making this story an absolute win!) is a plot that sees Pepper restoring a nearby cemetary in a reality tv show called "Cemetary Survivor". One team is made up of the town's social elite. The other is a group of parolees who have to do the show as part of their parole arrangements. Guess which team Pepper is put in charge of? It is a riot seeing Pepper work with and come to know the group of outcast parolees. I must go ahead and say right here that I hope they show up again in the series from time to time, they were all too great to say goodbye to! The mystery was well done and it isn't immediately known who the murderer is...but the best part of the Pepper series still remains Pepper herself. If you haven't read one of these books before, go ahead and treat yourself!
