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?
Let's be honest, if you discovered your fiancée was a cheating scum bag would you go through with the wedding? No? Well, alrighty then, you already understand Verity and the way she thinks but the family she's tangled up with are kind of nothing like mere plebs and are considered by local society as anything but hoi polloi. Right now Verity is in deep doo-doo as she struggles not only to pay for the expensive wedding she ditched, but keep both her home and good name to boot!
So, imagine discovering a ghost on her property; one who is kind of stuck but after a somewhat inauspicious beginning this odd partnership takes Verity places she just doesn't believe. Would you believe in being a psychic detective? Because that's just what ghost hunting Verity is about to become.
Southern Spirits is such a funny read and I love Verity's personality; but don't think it's just fluff because it's quick moving with a tight plot featuring the odd red herring and an adventure that kept me guessing. Plus, with Frankie around, it's chock full of interesting side notes and characters.
Not exactly a romance but as Verity gets to know Ellis you just know it's going to make for rather uncomfortable get togethers at Christmas time!
I really liked Southern Spirits and happily recommend the whole series.
