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 to 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 Wydell 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 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?
In Sugarland, Tennessee, Verity Long is at the end of her rope.
Recently un-engaged to the town’s wealthiest bachelor after finding out he was a cheat and hit up her sister! And his mother sued her for the cost of the wedding, resulting in her having to sell everything she owned. Including everything in the antebellum home her Grandmother left her.
All she has left is a dented up old urn that her ex didn’t want.
When she tries to clean the gunk out of the bottom of the urn, it turns out there had been someone eternally resting in it. And now, she’s stuck with him.
Frankie is still a 1920’s gangster and is not happy to be suddenly tied to Verity. When Ellis, brother to her Ex and a cop, asks for her help in ridding his recently purchased mill of what he thinks are ghosts, she may have found a way to save her home after all.
This was a just plain fun book to read. And I will definitely read the rest of them, as she has an excerpt in the back of this book, and it looks like she and Frankie are getting into more trouble!
