But I am certainly happy to have done so...This is by far, for me, the best of the best! It's a complex murder mystery, as well as an amazing paranormal tale--ok--a still greater ghost story than all of the previous ones...
Which only served to make me become happy when I saw that the author had already begun on the next book...
Verity gets a call at the same time the police learn of a breakin at the local Historical Society... Verity's call indicated that there had been a murder! Only thing, when the police got there, there wasn't anybody around. Soooo, who had called Verity? Or better, "how" did the caller use the telephone?
This is a story where humans really meet ghosts...they are all around the historical building, with even an old ignored cemetery... I'll let Verity tell you what she sees there, but the word to think is...creepy...
The woman who had been killed was the new president of the society, replacing the last, our female villain of the town, and the mother of both men in Verity's love life, who sued Verity when she left her baby at the altar... She had been president for at least ten years, the loss quite upsetting, especially since she'd taken all the records from the library into the building only to be lost...
But that didn't stop then discovering the secret that those records revealed. And that was a doozy of a surprise!
Nor did it result in not solving the murder mystery that pulled everything together...
One of the most delightful parts of this book is the shenanigans that Frankie starts...the ghost who comes back to town and gets into an argument with Frankie who threatens to kill him...deader this time...LOL And, dare I reveal that Frankie finds a ghost girlfriend?! Yes! you need to know to prove how super-cool this latest book is...It is my personal favorite not only of the series, but of the year's read books. So it had to be added to my 2017 personal favorite lists...And Angie Fox to my top favorite authors!
Fox has handled this series in an outstanding, exemplary manner. She makes sure that each book stands alone, providing sufficient background information that is, importantly, not merely a rewrite. Her back story flows within the new book, revealing information which is duplicative but not tedious to series followers.
Character development is extraordinary. Each ghost has a background story that makes you care for them. There was one particular ghost in this book that had been in town during the time her grandmother had been alive. Since the dominating ghost shows the site where he or she is as he saw it when he was alive, Verity, for the first time, was able to see the entire family estate as it once was... This was such a cool idea to add, in my opinion, given that over the years much of the land had been sold off before the home was inherited by Verity... Kinda wish I could have a ghost show me what my property looked like which had been in the family for over 100 years...
You know when you've followed every book in a series, it soon becomes like a well-known family. Aaron Paul Lazar has the skill to do that with his various series that I follow. This is the first by another author, but definitely inspires the same feelings... Already I'm hoping that Frankie will become a permanent house guest...somehow...
Highly recommended for series lovers, especially if you do it like I did and read the entire series in a week...I never tired of moving on to the next story, and only stopped to eat and sleep... Now that's what I call a refreshing and wonderful spring break. Try it with this series...You definitely won't be sorry!
However this book is the first time a ghost calls her on the phone with a warning! It leads to solving the mystery of ghosts in the museum and the murder of the new president of the Sugarland Heritage Society. This makes her financially solvent for the first time in quite a while. With the help of her beau, deputy sheriff Ellis Wydell, as well as Frankie, Verity uncovers many secrets and truths that have been hidden for decades. She puts herself in peril at the hands of the unhappy ghosts, and in order to solve the murder.
This is an exciting and fast paced book, probably the best in the series so far. Attention to details make it a rewarding read that always sounds historically accurate-even if it isn't. I love the fact that Verity has a sweet skunk for a pet named Lucy, and a romantic soft spot for Frankie!
So yes Verity life weird is the new normal, now with a murder in the historical society. Who are you going to call? No you can't those people are copyrighted silly!!! You get the next best thing Verity & Frankie. You will find yourself giggling , holding you're breathe & even a awe or two. For Angie Fox has created a beautiful town full of interesting characters that jump from the page and into your heart.
Verity hits the jackpot and actually gets paid, this time before her boss shows up dead. There are lots of twists and turns. New ghosts, New friends, New people trying to kill Verity. All in a days work in Sugarland. A very fun read and can't wait for the next book of fun for Verity the ghost hunter.
Love this series by Angie.
