Southern Spirits Book Summary


One simple mistake…
It really did look like a vase, not an urn.
For a girl who is about to lose her family home.
So she dumped it out onto the rose bushes, and rinsed it with the hose.
Traps the ghost of a long-dead gangster.
He really didn’t have to be so rude about it.
And open’s Verity Long’s eyes to a whole new world…

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. That leads to an offer she can’t refuse from the town bad boy, the brother of her ex, 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 to banish the spooks for good. But Verity discovers 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?

    I was very impressed with this book. After the first encounter, I thought, where do we go from here. This story was beyond my expectations! Her style of writing moves the story along. The descriptions of the houses, ghostly images and characters are very good. And a little romance too. I hope her other books are as good. Read it!
  • Awesome!!!

  • Fun Mix of Mystery and Romance

    This was such a cute story! It was mix of cozy mystery and paranormal romance - so I'll be interested to see if the romance comes up in the rest of the series as well. The two genres were combined beautifully and readers of both will love this story. Southern girl Verity Long has found herself on the wrong end of her small town's opinion - even though she isn't really the one at fault. It turns out her next best friend is actually a ghost - well, she's in for a lot more than she ever expected. When she sets off on a ghost hunt - not for her ghostly friend, but with his help, she finds out there might still be a shot at love at there for her as well. Verity was a great character. I loved how she rolled with the punches and somehow managed to take all things in a stride - just like any southern lady - she invites it in and asks if it would like some tea. Nothing ever seems to completely phase her - at least on the outside. Ellis Wyatt is the last person she expects to be spending time with, but she quickly discovers that he's nothing like she expected. This was very close to a sweet romance, with just enough heat to really appeal to the romance reader. There's lots of lovey moments that are just enhanced by the spooky elements from the mystery. The mystery is a great one as well with a very unexpected villain. The down side was that there was really no way for the reader to predict the bad guy. There's no real evidence until the very last second. But the chase was still a lot of fun. I hope the next books in the series can pull everything together as beautifully as this book - I loved it. *This book was received in exchange for an honest review*

    This book was so much fun. It is loaded with interesting characters that make up a fun, and charming world. It was a blast from start to finish and I totally enjoyed it. Favorite Quote that pretty much sums up how it all starts ““Listen, Doll,” Frankie said his tone softening a hair. “When your great-uncle so-and-so dies, there’s a reason you scatter his ashes. You scatter,” he said making a motion like he was feeding birds or something. “You let them catch the wind. You give the spirit freedom if he wants it.” His voice grew tight. “You don’t dump them all in one spot then stomp on ‘em.”” Verity is a down on her luck graphic designer from Sugarland Tennessee who gets in a little over her head when she leaves her ex-fiancé Beau Wydell at the altar. Beau happens to be the most eligible bachelor in three counties, and from a very prominent Sugarland family. After being sued by Mrs. Leland Herworth Wydell III for every dime she has left to pay for scandal that was supposed to be their wedding Verity owes more than $20,000. While cleaning out her house to get the money she inadvertently lets loose the ghost of Beau’s uncle a 1920’s gangster named Frankie, and grounds him to her ancestral home. Saddled with a ghost, and no money in the hopes of keeping her house Verity takes a job for her ex’s brother black sheep Ellis Wydell. She is charged with the job of cleaning out a violent spirit from the restaurant that Ellis happens to be remodeling. Many hijinks ensue during the book which culminates in Ellis and Verity being embroiled in a decades old murder mystery. Will they solve they be able to solve mystery, and move the ghost on before the murder catches them! I totally recommend this book to anyone who is a fan of Mrs. Fox’s work, and who also likes cozy mysteries of a ghostly nature. I can’t wait to read the next book in this series. *I received this book from the Author in return for my honest review. I received no other money, or goodie bag just the book so that I could form an opinion. That in no way changes my opinions of this book.*
