by Angie Fox
Publisher: Moose Island Books
Release: March 17th 2016
Genre: Fiction- Adult: Paranormal Romance
How I got it: NetGalley

Just because she can see the dead doesn’t mean Verity Long wants to spend her days hunting ghosts. Instead, she’s over the moon to land a marketing job at the local bank…until she finds her new boss dead in the vault. Even her ghost friend, Frankie, knows that's no way to start a career.

Relieved to let the police take charge, Verity steps aside, bound and determined to keep her ghost sightings to herself. But when she learns the main suspect in the murder is a very crooked, very dead mobster, Verity knows it's up to her to solve the case.

She teams up with her ghostly gangster buddy Frankie, as well as the irresistible and charming Ellis, as the three of them search haunted mob hideouts, hidden passageways, and historic cemeteries for the facts behind the heist of the century—and a modern-day motive for murder.

Too bad uncovering the truth could very well make Verity the next victim...

This is book 3 in the Southern Ghost Hunter Mysteries Series, I've read book 1 but missed book 2 although no worries as these can be read as stand alones.
Verity is an out of work graphic artist, who's best friends uncle gives a second chance. While working out what her job would entail, the uncle who is bank president goes down to the vault and ends up dead. His death follows the MO of a very dead mobster. Verity with the help of her ghostly pal Frankie, take up the case. With the help of her almost, possible, boyfriend Ellis they track down leads that only Verity can.
The plot moved along at a good clip, it kept me interested and intrigued. Laced with humor and a touch of romance this book has it all. I need to mention the Ellis and Verity's relationship is a bit awkward and they are feeling it out, but still they make an adorable couple. I have to say that the end was both a surprise and kind of expected. Overall this was a fun, quirky, and good read.
