Southern Spirits by Angie Fox
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
It’s been a long time since I’ve read a great story with ghosts, and Southern Spirits is a jewel I don’t regret coming across. Verity Long’s skunky ex-fiance is determined to rob her of her ancestral home. Who would have thought dumping the contents of an ugly urn would gain her twenty thousand dollars and a ghostly sidekick.
I really loved this book and will definitely be reading the next book. It was funny and scary enough to make me turn around a couple of times to check the breeze coming through the curtains…lol. This story is focused more on Verity and her navigation of the spirit plane. The way Angie Fox draws you in from the first, a haunting that turned out to be the scene of a murder was very entertaining. I would also like to read more of the scandal waiting to happen (Ellis and Verity affair).

When out of work graphic designer Verity Long accidentally traps a ghost on her property, she’s saddled with more than a supernatural sidekick—she gains the ability see spirits. It leads to an offer she can’t refuse from the town’s bad boy, the brother of her ex and the last man she should ever partner with.
Ellis Wyatt is in possession of a stunning historic property haunted by some of Sugarland Tennessee’s finest former citizens. Only some of them are growing restless—and destructive. He hires Verity put an end to the disturbances. But soon Verity learns there’s more to the mysterious estate than floating specters, secret passageways, and hidden rooms.
There’s a modern day mystery afoot, one that hinges on a decades-old murder. Verity isn't above questioning the living, or the dead. But can she discover the truth before the killer finds her?
