Ghost a la Mode (A Ghost of Granny Apples Mystery) by Sue Ann Jaffarian

I loved this book, the pages kept slipped through my fingers like water.  The characters were so rounded I wanted to meet each and every one of them - even Granny Apples - the main ghost. Ghost a la Mode is the first of the Granny Apples series and I can't wait to read the rest.    There is mystery, mayhem, romance and plenty of talking ghosts.

This first book in the series introduces Ish Reynolds (aka Granny Apples), a charming turn-of-the-20th-century spirit and pie maker, who asks Emma Whitecastle, her great-great-great-granddaughter, to prove her innocent of murdering her husband, Jacob Reynolds. Strung up by vigilantes in retribution for the crime, Granny Apples first tried haunting Emma's mother, Elizabeth, who couldn't handle her visitations.  

Emma, who is in the midst of divorcing her obnoxious TV talk show husband, is ripe for a diversion. After getting advice about her new clairvoyant and clairaudient abilities from psychic Milo Ravenscroft, Emma goes to Julian, a former mining town near San Diego, Calif., to research Ish's story. Emma's fluttery feelings for Phil Bower, a crusty rancher and lawyer who owns Granny's old property add a touch of romance.
