It is the annual Cannonball in the Wall Festival for Sugarland, TN. Even though the Yankee's won the war, Sugarland takes great honor in winning this one confrontation. This year the Wydell family has even involved the History Channel (television) to document this celebration and relate the historical background. The entire town is involved.
Verity Long's sister, Melody is working at the town's library to get all the collections organized in time. Especially the Jackson and Wydell family memorabilia. Her co-volunteer, Darcy sends exhausted Melody home at two a.m. and follows it up with sudden cell phone calls to several persons. What is the 'Urgent' message about? Well, no one will know as Darcy is found 'dead' the next morning by Melody and Verity.
Deputy Ellis Wydell (black sheep of the family,) knows that if he wants answers, he better ask Verity to ask the questions...of the ghosts that reside in the Library. The ghosts are the eye/ear witnesses of the crime.
We are taken on a hunt for a killer who is desperate to keep History from changing...but why and for whom? This novel was humorous and exciting. In this case the Dead get the final word.
This time she finds herself dealing with her ex’s mother, the woman who’s suing her because she left her son at the alter. Not only does she have to deal with her, but her ex too. He can’t seem to leave her alone and is too stupid to realize that she wants nothing to do with him. I cannot wait for the moment when he finds out she’s dating his brother, the black sheep of the family. I absolutely love Ellis and how protective he gets over Verity, warms my heart. But even he can’t stop her from getting sucked in to finding who the killer is, she is a southern woman after all.
Overall yet another fun read by Mrs. Fox! The ghostly tale swept me in and it was a blast going on another adventure with this cast of characters. Still love Frankie and his wit, helps keep the story light!
Hopefully, if Angie Fox's books draw an even larger audience, she will be able to afford a better artist to design her next series covers. A cover is so important. It is what first makes you pick up a book (or download a book) and a bad cover can disguise a truly entertaining book. Don't let these covers fool you. The first 2 books in this series has more substance than the covers lead you to believe. At least it did for me. Just a hint, Ms. Fox: this series is way to much fun to miss because of a cover snob like me. ;)
Whether or not you have read the first book in The Southern Ghost Hunter Mysteries series , The Skeleton in the Closet will be the most entertaining ghost story you've read in a long time. Verity Long and her pet skunk, Lucy, are still living in the tiny, haunted town of Sugarland, where they share their domicile with Frankie, the ghost of a Roaring Twenties mafioso.
In this story, Verity is trying to assure the success of Sugarland's annual Cannonball in the Wall Festival, honoring the single (abortive) Civil War skirmish touching the town. Verity and Frankie, with the increasingly romantic assistance of handsome Deputy Ellis Wydell, must confront enemies both human and ghostly to unravel a mystery that could set the Cannonball in the Wall Festival on its ear - with fatal results.
Angie Fox returns to the quirky characters and Southern charm that made book 1 (Southern Spirits) a delightful romp. Again Verity narrates in first person, allowing her bravery and humor to appeal strongly to readers. I recommend The Skeleton in the Closet to readers of any age who are looking for that rare Halloween-season story containing NO satanic, demonic, profane, or sexually offensive material.
