And just for good measure, Frankie pops in next to the two of them--Lucy does not like Frankie and she struggles to run away...
So that when Verity has the first warning of company visiting, she is, ah, not exactly looking like it's time to meet and greet...
Lauralee was one of her best friends, so she didn't mind her visiting, but she had brought her uncle, who had come back to Sugarland to take over the town's bank... Thankfully, Reggie was a good man and handled Verity's embarrassment in a gentlemanly fashion. And by the time the visit was over Verity was scheduled to meet with him about a job at the bank! A real job, using her design expertise!
Only thing is, when she was in the midst of the interview, Reggie was called to another floor for an emergency situation... And died... You get the feeling that Verity is going to be chasing more ghosts for an even longer time!?
Soooooo, here's a trick question! What happens if you're in the midst of digging a tunnel to rob a bank, and you die? Well, you become a ghost and keep on digging... Now, employees at the bank had been hearing noises in the vault for quite some time and they had wanted the new president to hear it as well, hoping they'd be able to discover what it was--was the bank haunted?
Well, of course it was--at least by one lonely ghost who hadn't been out of a tunnel for years... But, when Verity had run down to see what was happening and saw the body, and those there, she felt it had to have been one of those individuals, especially after talking with Frankie and having him check things out with his friends. Only thing was, there were marks on his body that were the signature of a known criminal, and using his normal method of operation... Of course he was dead...
Still, Frankie was happy with it all...his friend, Suds, who'd died in the tunnel, was found and Frankie broke the news that he was dead. Still, it did free him and wouldn't you know it, Suds was soon often a visitor to Verity's house...😒
Then there's the jilted mother-in-law who discovers Verity having dinner with another son!
Plus a murder mystery to be solved. And instead of starting a new advertising campaign for the bank president, Verity is once again helping to solve the latest mystery by working with her unseen "confidential informants..." This mystery is complex, intriguing, and certainly surprising as it develops as secrets start coming out from both humans...and...ghosts!
Delightfully entertaining! A winning series from an excellent mystery writer!
The second chance was an offer to try and land a graphic design job at the oldest Sugarland Bank. Reggie, the uncle of Verity's best friend, Lauralee had always been kind to Verity and now he was willing to overlook the obviously diminished household, clothing, chaos (including rose bushes in the living room in trash containers,etc.) and give her a chance at the re-branding of the bank.
Reggie liked Lucy which I feel was a selling point, myself. I like Lucy too.
Unknown to Reggie, Frankie the German, also resides with Verity, inside the urn, buried with the rosebush...you must read from volume one. This book is a stand alone but you get the entire timeline (and it matters,) following from novel one. Reggie is eager to revisit the bank, his budy Suds (who decorated his urn,) is still there trying to blast into the vault some eighty years past.
Do you get the feeling this book is about ghosts and humor? Well, you are correct, however, you may have missed the fact that Reggie gets murdered in real time, and the signature of the 'hit' is from Handsome Henry back in the 20's. Is Henry still alive or can ghosts...?
Wild chase scenes, rocking Jazz clubs, speakeasy's and more fill this fast-paced murder mystery.
I can't wait for the next volume. I adore this series.
Varity and her gangster ghost is back. She is still trying to release him after accidentally tethering him to her property when she dumped out his urn thinking it was just dust. She is also trying to make a comeback after her almost ex mother-in-law sued her for wedding cost and won and then ruined her name in business.
Varity's best friend, Luralee, and her uncle Reggie who is now the manager of the local came to visit Varity one morning and he wants her to look at rebranding the band. When she goes to meet him there are some ghostly activities in the bank and he ends up dead. Exactly in the way another of Frankie's gangster friends used to kill his victims. It may be up to Varity to help solve this case but she hopes it doesn't come to that.
Her budding relationship with Virginia's other son, Ellis, is under wraps for the time being but when she stops by his house Virginia herself opens up her door to give her another piece of her mind and told her if she didn't stay away from her sons she would take whatever she had left and her house. That was enough to push Varity the rest of the way over the edge so that it take Ellis pulling her over several days later to get her to talk to him again. When she does they both get more involved in this case together.
Read this book to find out what happens with everyone and if they do find the killer.
I received this ARC in exchange for an honest review.
