Description from goodreads :

 When out of work graphic designer Verity Long accidentally traps a ghost on her property, she’s saddled with more than a supernatural sidekick—she gains the ability see spirits. It leads to an offer she can’t refuse from the town’s bad boy, the brother of her ex and the last man she should ever partner with.

Ellis Wyatt is in possession of a stunning historic property haunted by some of Sugarland Tennessee’s finest former citizens. Only some of them are growing restless—and destructive. He hires Verity put an end to the disturbances. But soon Verity learns there’s more to the mysterious estate than floating specters, secret passageways, and hidden rooms.

There’s a modern day mystery afoot, one that hinges on a decades-old murder. Verity isn't above questioning the living, or the dead. But can she discover the truth before the killer finds her?

My opinion:
          Funny but so much more! I really loved  this story...Verity is such a great heroine, she is strong, determined, loyal and not a damsel in distress.... I love how she stand up for herself even if it didn't really help with her ex who is taking all he can from her ( i sure do hope he will get what he deserves later in the story...i want him to suffer....)
now we only hear about him  so far but believe me you will hate him right on the spot.

Ellis is so different from his brother but at first he just thinks as does his family, fortunately being teh black sheep he opens up quickly and he is quite open minded really...not sure everyone would react as he dopes when learning there is a ghost speaking.

So after having sold all what was inside her grandmother house that she inherited to pay her ex Beau, Verity is devasted at the idea to have to sell the house...however while cleaning an ugly vase her ex left her she inadvertently imprison her ghost Frankie as it wasn't a vase but an urn holding his ashes. Stuck together for the time being the ghost of an gangster and Verity do their best to save the house and in the process Frankie allow her to see in the spirit realms and to speak to ghosts not only seeing them. With his "gift"  Verity is thrown into an adventure trying to find old treasures but also solve murders to appease some poltergeist.

Frankie is funny and i don't think he appreciates his family a lot ( because yes he is an ancestor of the ex). He protect Verity and i liked their relationship. The other ghosts are also interesting ( i did learn a bit of history). However for me the investigation was solved a little too quickly  for me-i was suspecting someone very early and i got the vilain right- the space of the book though is perfect. Verity and Ellis relationship or in fact simply trust this far build slowly, we learn about the ghost space and about each of them all while investigating.... really well done

I will be delighted to continue this series for sure and you will probably come to love Lucy but i will let you discover who it is. This is a fantastic paranormal cozy mystery with a touch of romance and humour

Score:  4,5/5
