Southern Spirits (Southern Ghost Hunter Mysteries #1)
by Angie Fox
Publisher:Angie Fox
Release:January 21st 2015
Genre:Fiction- Adult:Paranormal Mystery with a hint of romance
How I got it: NetGalley

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?

Review: I really enjoyed the humor and hijinks in this book.
Verity Long is forced to sell her home after her cheating ex-fiance sues her for the cost of a wedding that never happened. She accidently traps Frankie, a ghostly gangster, on her property. When her ghost hunting/ treasure finding adventure doesn't go as planned she's forced to take a job ghost hunting, from Ellis Wyatt. Not only is he the town cop, he's her ex's brother.
I found Verity to be a great main character, spunky, sassy and even has a pet skunk. Ellis and Variety have some great chemistry, even though you wouldn't think so given their history. The plot moved along really well and even though I figured out who dunit before the end, it kept me reading.
I enjoyed all the aspects of this book and look forward to the rest of the series.
