A USA Today Bestselling series!

A haunted library is no place for a girl who can see ghosts, but when Verity Long stumbles on a dead body in the middle of the main reading room, she has to believe someone...even a dead someone...must have witnessed the crime.

Her ghostly sidekick Frankie warns her to stay out of it. The very alive, very handsome deputy sheriff, Ellis Wydell, inadvertently places her directly in the middle of it. And her ex-fiancé, Ellis's brother, is back with an agenda of his own.

Undaunted, Verity presses forward, uncovering scandalous secrets, long-forgotten ghosts, and a shocking trail of clues that places her directly in the path of a killer.

What more could you ask for? How about a cute pet skunk? This was a great, light summer read. I love a good sex scene in my romance, but I didn't miss it at all. I love the characters and found myself laughing outloud. I just finished this 2nd book in the series and I've ordered the 3rd. My 12 year old daughter & I started reading this one outloud to eachother during downtime at our summer yardsale. Don't tell her I finished without her! The romance is about the level of a Hallmark Channel movie with plenty of southern charm. I found the main character to be a strong role model for young women. She stands up for what is right and protects the ones she loves . She is brave and independent. Bottom line is this is a well written, funny, mystery with a romance & ghosts. The ghost scenes are intense enough to be believable, but not "keep you up at night" scary. I highly recommend this series for anyone 12 to 112 looking for a fun summer read.

I am really enjoying the Southern Ghost Hunter Mysteries. Verity Long has a way of finding trouble, and her small southern town has its fair share of drama and mystery. In this case, one that goes back several generations. It's a good thing she has her new best-ghost-friend, Frankie, to help her out. This one gets a bit dangerous. When Verity finds a body in the library, she begins her trip to a convoluted past full of lies. Someone killed the woman because she found out a family secret, but which family and what is the secret? But wait!! What if it isn't just one secret? Verity has to pull the strings to unravel one heck of a historical coverup - and she couldn't have done it without Frankie. To complicate things a bit more, there's a station filming a documentary about the town's most famous battle. Verity's almost mother-in-law is heading the charge to make the town famous and won't let anything stand in her way. I loved visiting some past ghosts from book one, meeting a few really nice new ones, and watching Frankie's antics as he tries to unground himself from Verity's house. Lots of great banter, some dangerous situations, and a mystery solved in a very clever way. Highly recommend this series.

This book was great to read. It was greatly written, and was something that anyone reaing it could enjoy without worry a PG rating. The end line I didnt see coming. The author is good at keeping her readers in suspense. I have every intention of reading this book again as soon as i get the next novel so it will be like the continuing of the set. Thank you Angie for a really cool read. Teresa

This series has great characters, humor, danger, and suspense. And you won't suspect "who done it" until the end. Start with Book 1. It's free. But be warned . . . you won't want to stop!

Verity and Frankie make a great team, even if one of them is a ghost. This series has it all. Humor, suspense, love and a pet skunk. I'll be reading the rest of the series as soon as they are available.

Angie Fox takes the reader into a wonderful Southern town, Sugerland, with her spunky main character, Levity Long who has accidentally gotten attached to a local ghost, Frankie. With his colorful past as a gangster, Frankie takes on a new role to help Levity solve ghostly and present day mysteries. This time they are drawn into a celebration of the town's past historical Civil War battle that leaves a canon ball lodged in the wall of the historical library. Ms. Fox has created a fun read full of excitement and humor bring in the flavor of living amongst ghosts and present day in Tennessee.

I loved this one just as much as the first book. However I think this one was way more of a mystery than book one. Frankie (the German) is still stuck at Verity's house and he is still funny. Verity just keeps finding herself in sticky situations, which make for a great book. Has: mystery, humor, of course lots of ghosts and a little bit of romance

Fun and a mystery which has murder and attempted murder, angry ghosts, bored ghosts, kidnapping, and a whole lot more. Suspense and tension enough to keep the reader interested, but not real enough to trigger PTSD. Add in a pet skunk, a pestering ex, an attractive deputy, and a town celebration, and good writing, and you have a good read.
