For Southern girl Verity Long, friendship means sitting down to stories and sweet tea on the front porch. For her gangster ghost housemate, it means dragging Verity out to a remote haunted asylum during a raging thunderstorm to do a favor for a long-dead mob boss.
But Verity is always ready to help out a friend, even one as eternally eccentric as Frankie. And in the case of Mint Julep Manor, the stakes are too high to refuse. The criminally insane mob boss holds a secret to Frankie’s past, one that might set Frankie free. Do the favor—survive the favor—and they might change Frankie’s afterlife for good. Fail, and they might never leave the asylum.
The Mint Julep Murders by Angie Fox is one of the best ghost haunting stories I’ve read. There’s plenty of humor, mystery, suspense, and chills to keep readers like myself, entertained. I felt the horror, fear, and hope the characters created or felt. It was an interesting combination. A young woman is an ameatur sleuth with a friendly ghost gangster stuck to her property. Her boyfriend is a police officer who has helped her solve cases and sometimes rescue her from life threatening situations. Then, there’s her pet skunk that gets into everything. This novel has everything from humor to suspense. The pages leapt to life as the words flew by. The scenes were fast-paced. I can’t find anything bad about this story. Angie Fox is a talented writer. Overall, I highly recommend her latest novel , The Mint Julep Murders.
