Product: The Sims 4
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Often (50% - 99%)
What is your current game version number? 184.108.40.2060
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? Everything but My First Pet Stuff, Realm Of Magic, Discover University, and Moschino Stuff.
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Use both "Summon [Insert Sim Name Here]", and "Restore Life" with the Book Of Life.
What happens when the bug occurs? "Summon" does not make the selected ghost appear. The ghost will endeavour to put away the Book of Life into a bookshelf or chest, cancelling the resurrection process.
What do you expect to see? "Summon sim" should make the corresponding ghost appear, whilst "Restore Life" should make the sim read the book, then return to life.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Not now. I've removed them.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Neutral/Not Sure
The former does not work AT ALL ("Summon Sim), whilst the latter ("Restore Life") has only worked once in quite a few tests (by myself, and another simmer). The only time the latter works, is if there are no viable storage containers on the lot.

@KyreRoenYou can summon the selected ghost with the book of life, but you are missing a step, before they can be resurrected they need to be added to your household as a ghost. Now a playable ghost can read the book of life and it will say resurrect.
@Sid1701d9 My apologies if my wording made it seem like I did, but let me reiterate: another sim using the Book of Life (bound to the deceased before her death) cannot summon the sim's ghost. The "summon Sim" command does not work at all in this regard. As for the resurrection, when added to the household, the ghost sim endeavours to put away the book directly after completing the reading of said book, which cancels the resurrection process.
I don't work or have any association with EA. I give advice to the best of my knowledge and cannot be held responsible for any damage done to your computer/game.
Please only contact me via PM when asked to do so.
@crinrict The workarounds for resurrection (with the BoL) are:
