Southern Ghost Hunter Mysteries, Book 5
Synopsis: Southern girl Verity Long is about as high society as her pet skunk. Which is why she’s surprised as anyone when the new head of the Sugarland social set invites her to join the “it” girls. But this is no social call. Verity’s new client needs her to go in undercover and investigate strange happenings at the group’s historic headquarters.
But while spirits are whispering hints of murder, the socialites are more focused on Verity’s 1978, avocado-green Cadillac. And when Verity stumbles upon a fresh body, she’s going to need the long-dead citizens of Sugarland to help her solve the crime. Good thing she has the handsome deputy sheriff Ellis Wydell on hand, as well as her ghostly sidekick Frankie. The bad thing is, the ghosts are now whispering about the end of a certain ghost hunter.
Review: I always look forward to new adventures of Verity Long. So I happily jumped into this volume 5!
Verity finds herself thrust into a whole new story. Of course, she also has to deal with a new murder. When she is hired to find out what the ghosts want in the Sugarland Legacy Society, Verity doesn’t expect to discover the body of the woman who hired her the very next day. If the police decide it was an accident, Verity knows she was murdered and she is determined to find out who the murderer is, helped of course by our dear Ellis. It’s all the more difficult because Virginia is very present in this volume and our heroine will have a hard time knowing how to deal with her.
It was a very nice volume 5, as always. I was thrilled to see the characters again. Frankie shows us a new side of his personality and I can’t wait to read more! I’m sure the characters will come up with a great new adventure!
