A Review for Southern Spirits by Angie Fox. Four *


One simple mistake… 
For a girl who is about to lose her family home, 
Releases the ghost of a long-dead gangster, 
And opens 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. 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 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? 


This was the first book I had read by Angie Fox so I had no expectations. And I actually enjoyed it very much. It was a clever mix of Deep South manners and ghosts with very strong characters! Verity dumped her fiancé at the altar for very good reasons and he then sued her for costs. She sells the entire contents of the house she inherited from her grandmother and needs to find another large sum to prevent the sale of the actual house. She finds a dreadful vase and dumps the contents on the roses. This is when the fun starts! Angie has a great sense of humour and this is evident in every page. Verity is a feisty young woman and doesn't let the impossible stop her from doing anything! I won't go into plot details as this is the first of a series and I'm not about write any spoilers!
This book is great fun - get it and have a laugh
