The author handles setting exceptionally well, giving us the feel of a small southern town where everyone tends to know a little too much about your business. Verity gives the townspeople lots of fodder for gossip, which she handles with a mix of indignant defiance and embarrassment. I immediately sympathized with her. I also immediately liked her. But, really, how can you not like a women who has a pet skunk and talks to ghosts?
All of the characters come alive on these pages. The plot is well paced, with the mystery unfolding a little at a time, keeping me interested and thoroughly entertained.
Southern Spirits is a fantastic start to a series, and the perfect book for some lighthearted fun.
After clipping a rose from the bush, putting it in the vase and adding water, Verity returned to the home she had inherited from her grandmother. What happened next takes her on a journey that could only traveled by a strong minded southern girl, which she was.
Verity had been engaged to one of the most eligible, prominent members of her hometown Sugarland, Tennessee. The wedding was planned and she was ready to go through it living happily ever after. What she learned the day before the actual wedding put a stop on the event and ended up costing her everything she owned. She had already sold off everything within her grandmother's house, except the dented vase that no one seemed to want. Unless she found a way to come up with another $20,000 she would also be selling the house which was breaking her heart.
This book is so full of humor! I'll give you just one hint of what you're in store for when reading Southern Spirits - Lucy is a skunk! She's had her glands removed so she's safe but so cute you would think her to be a dog or cat. The problems and events that take place after Verity poured the dirt on the roses leads to even more humor. Yes, there are ghosts, murder and attempted murder, bringing it all together to make this one of my favorite books.
One complaint is that this appears to be a self-published book that could have used a good editor and copy-editor. How Verity's ghost companion, Frankie, appears connected to her and some of the other ghostly appearances are a bit confusing, leaving a reader uncertain on how it all happens. As the author herself has one of the ghosts saying, "It can get muddy on this side of the fence." A good editor could have cleared up some of that muddiness, and some of the more obvious errors in continuity and grammar.
