Publisher Description

A haunted church. A ghastly death. Can Verity clear up the case before she’s buried way over her head?

Verity Long would really like a day off. Between uncovering the culprit who capped her gangster ghost housemate and dodging the bomb her boyfriend just dropped on their relationship, her spiritual calling has gotten complicated. But when she steps out for a little fun at a church fundraiser, she has another mystery on her hands when a family friend plunges from the bell tower.

With her pet skunk and a spectral mobster buddy in tow, Verity charges back into the world of furious phantoms. But as she follows a shocking trail of clues through a dangerous speakeasy, a possessed movie theatre, and a spooky mob safehouse, she could end up sleeping with the ghostly fishes.

Can Verity lay everything to rest before a mysterious murderer reads her last rites?

Southern Bred and dead

Fantastic. Wasn’t sure I wanted to finish it as it sounded like Ellis & Verity were going to break up. But did finish & it turned out great. Loved it.

An excellent story about the past and finding family! Frankie has found out it was his brother Lou who killed him. The hunt is on to find his brother and get the answer to why did he kill him. Verity and Ellis have a few problems to work out and it is good for their relationship.
You will about the mob and how it worked in Sugarland and find out about secrets and it all started with a picture being given to Verity about a wedding which had taken place years ago. Many things in the story will surprise you as secrets are revealed. Good comes from this as many will get the burial they were denied years ago.
There are a few unresolved things but it will be nice in the next story in the series! Another winner for Angie Fox!

Southern Bred and Dead - Verity, Frankie and the gang are back & better than ever!

I was so excited for this next installment of the Southern Ghost Hunter series to come out! My only complaint is that I read it too fast and now I have to wait again for the next book, lol. First let me say that I have loved All the books in this series (and all the others by Angie Fox as well), but there is enough background given that you “could“ read this as a stand-alone, but don’t do that to yourself! It’s so much fun watching the characters unfold as the series continues. It’s a very natural progression that doesn’t feel rushed or an afterthought as some books can do.
The hard part about a book review is trying to say how good it is, without giving too much away! You will find all your favorite characters from the series - Verity, Ellis, Frankie, etc. ... and one that might not have been always be a favorite- Beau. And yes, of course everyone’s favorite skunk Lucy is back too! (I just really want to snuggle and play with her one day). I felt a little more suspense and darkness in this story but still with the trademark Southern humor. I LOVED finding out more of Frankie’s story & finally more about how he died. As always, he’s a bit of a bad influence at times, but you can’t help but love him anyway. Verity is her warm hearted and tenacious self and, as always, saves the day in the end. I highly recommend reading this book and Angie Fox in general. I love her style!
