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 to 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 Wydell 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?
For memory, I got this as a free book on my kindle. It was was good, I brought more in the series to read and wasn’t disappointed by these either.
Angie Fox offers an excellent protagonist with Verity Long, someone who has strength as well as humour. Her accidental ghostly sidekick Frankie, also offers a new way of seeing the spirit world I haven’t seen in any other book before, by showing a luminescent view of the world, which is based on what the dominant ghost sees. Frankie also creates a nice character contrast to Verity.
Ellis Wydell and his brother Beau then also add both a romantic and small town component that makes Verity’s life rather interesting.
And if her life wasn’t interesting enough she also has a pet skunk.
A great read and I look forward to the next in the series.
