Review: Southern Spirits (Books 1-3)


New York Times bestseller Angie Fox celebrates 5 years of the USA Today bestselling Southern Ghost Hunter series with a limited edition boxed set of the first three stories in the series, along with never-before-seen additional content, including deleted scenes, original art, an inside look at the characters, and a behind-the-scenes peek at how the series came together.

Southern Spirits
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.

A Ghostly Gift
Verity Long doesn’t want to see ghosts, and she’d rather not let anyone know her little secret, either. But when a restless spirit stirs up trouble in her friend’s resale shop, Verity and her very new, very dead gangster friend team up to learn what is really happening.

The Skeleton in the Closet
A haunted library is no place for a girl who can see ghosts, but when Verity Long stumbles on a dead body in the middle of the main reading room, she has to believe someone…even a dead someone…must have witnessed the crime.

*This edition contains never-before-seen material and will be available for a limited time.

Rating: 5-stars


Southern Spirits (book 1) by Angie Fox is full of southern charm. The humor and mystery mix works well for this paranormal spin. A young, gorgeous southern lady, Verity, becomes a ghost hunter sleuth. Her fiancé cheated on her and she dumped him. The whole town hates her thinking she’s a gold digger. But that is far from the truth. Verity has to deal with that plus, the loss of all her stuff and a stupid bill from her ex. She may end up losing her grandmother’s home. A home that now, has a 1920 gangster ghost attached to it. Verity and the ghost become partners. I enjoyed the banter between her and the police officer, her ex’s brother. Hilarious and sweet, this read is worth every page!

A Ghostly Gift (book 2) by Angie Fox is once again just as charming as the first book. I love Frankie, the 1920’s gangster ghost. Verity has to carry his urn whenever they go places away from her grandmother’s home. It’s both frustrating and funny. Verity and Frankie are stuck with each other no matter what. Also, Verity doesn’t want everyone to know about her new ability. However, her new ability comes in handy with her friend’s shop. Once more, the bubbling banter and romantic interest between Verity and her ex’s brother continues. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this ghost cozy mystery.

The Skeleton in the Closet (book 3) by Angie Fox is the third and last book in this boxed set. As always, humor, romance, and mystery are displayed among the pages. The plot was action-packed. Verity, the heroine, has a way of getting into sticky ghost murder situations. The cases Verity gets herself into are deadly. Both from the spiritual and human worlds. In this series, there always both a ghost and human behind every crime committed. I cannot get enough of this series. Plus, Verity has a pet skunk!
