latest in the USA Today bestselling Southern Ghost Hunter series!
Southern girl Verity Long is about as high
society as her pet skunk. Which is why she’s surprised as anyone when the new
head of the Sugarland social set invites her to join the "it" girls.
But this is no social call. Verity’s new client needs her to go in undercover
and investigate strange happenings at the group’s historic headquarters.
But while spirits are whispering hints of
murder, the socialites are more focused on Verity’s 1978, avocado-green
Cadillac. And when Verity stumbles upon a fresh body, she's going to need the
long-dead citizens of Sugarland to help her solve the crime. Good thing she has
the handsome deputy sheriff Ellis Wydell on hand, as well as her ghostly
sidekick Frankie. The bad thing is, the ghosts are now whispering about the end
of a certain ghost hunter
I really do love this series and it's so well written that even if you
are new to the series you could still enjoy this one as the author does remind us of the important events that
happened to lead to the actual situation.
Still if you can start by the beginning it's too good to miss.
However, let see this specific story
Verity has decided to accept her gift and
try to make a job of it when Frankie agree to lend a bit of its power which
isn't often done without some bargaining. She still believes in him but our
gangster has quite a mind of its own though a certain lady is perhaps changing
that. On the sentimental side, Verity 's relationship with Ellis is evolving
well....at least as long as they are left to their own .
We do learn a bit more about Verity's
ancestry and i would be happy to meet Ida, we discover Ellis' mother ....i
hated her in book 1 and i still do! That woman is intelligent but such a
monster...she knew what her son did but
still has it against Verity even after trying to take her last cent! Now
she is acting again and i so would like
to see her punished ( and of course i still want Beau to pay dearly for what he
did!) because for her all is about appearance.
We also see a bit more of the south's
tradition and i really love that. It's funny to see how the city forgot his history to change it to what would
feel more acceptable....but i do appreciate
that some try to rectify that like
Verity. I must say that i'm curious to see how Verity will manage in those
So for the investigation itself it was
really funny, i loved the different ghosts and the rhythm was perfect keeping
you glued to the book . You want to know the culprit and to see him (or they)
get what they deserve....it can take time ( i mean looks for Beau he sure
deserves to be punished but so far he isn't) but i'm sure we won't be
There is a lot of humour , Molly and
Henrietta are some ghosts you will love, Frankie has some ideas to win money
after all for him all is about money generally and if it annoys Verity the
better. Romance and i won't tell you more about this part you will have to see.
Action, because Verity can't stand by or keep her mouth shut but that's why we
Really even if you are new to the series
don't hesitate to read this you will spend a great time!
