Tonya Kappes is an American author who is best known for her hilarious plots and quirky characters. She is the USA Today best selling author and creator of the Ghostly Southern Mysteries and A Camper and Criminals Cozy Mystery series of books.

Kappes came to writing after a divorce that left her rather depressed. The act of reading really helped her recover from that and took her out of that world. This inspired her to restart her life and when she remarried, her new husband believed in her that she could write a book of her own. She’s taken her experience from her original divorce and attempts to write books that can help just one person escape their daily life and their troubles. Based on her success, she’s helped a bit more than that.

If You Like Tonya Kappes Books, You’ll Love…

A Ghostly Undertaking is the first book in the Ghostly Southern Mysteries series. This book introduces us to the undertaker Emma Lee Raines who is suffering from “funeral trauma” after a plastic Santa fell on her head. This trauma is causing the recently departed to start talking to her. Ruthie Sue Payne is her first customer so to speak and she swears that she didn’t just fall down the stairs. Emma will have to play detective to put Ruthie to rest or else risk being haunted by her forever.

Another great series by Kappes is the Camper and Criminals Cozy Mystery series. The first book is called Beaches, Bungalows & Burglaries. Mae West sees her life thrown upside down when her husband is arrested for a Ponzi scheme and she’s left with nothing… except for a campground in Kentucky. Mae heads to Kentucky and finds herself a true fish out of water. When her husband escapes from prison and ends up dead in the campground’s lake, Mae is the top suspect. She’ll need to prove herself innocent before she ends up taking the fall.
