Good Thursday all, today we are going to review a book that I think anyone who loves funny, quirky. paranormal reads. THE SKELETON IN THE CLOSET.( Southern Ghost Hunter Mysteries ) book 2 by Angie Fox
From New York Times bestseller Angie Fox, the second book in the new Southern Ghost Hunter mysteries
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.
Her ghostly sidekick Frankie warns her to stay out of it. The very alive, very handsome deputy sheriff, Ellis Wydell, inadvertently places her directly in the middle of it. And her ex-fiancé, Ellis’s brother, is back with an agenda of his own.
Undaunted, Verity presses forward, uncovering scandalous secrets, long-forgotten ghosts, and a shocking trail of clues that places her directly in the path of a killer.
I really enjoyed this book. Ms Fox's stories have such a cozy home town feeling to them with a dash of quirkiness to them . Welcome to Verity Long's world . She is living a small town and working in a library. Oh and she also sees dead people . Which she finds in the middle of the library right before a big town party. So what does she do, she tries to solve the mystery while trying not to get killed and also trying to tell her ex that it is over and she will not be back to him . So with the help of the sheriff and her dead sidekick , they search for the killer . But will they survive the mystery or even themselves .
I love these characters, they are such fun to read. Each of them has their own quirky traits that will make you laugh Verity is your typical small town girl, who just wants a life and she is trying to figure out her new powers of seeing ghosts . You find out more of the background on her also . Why she is hated by Mrs Wydell . We see her grow and become a stronger woman as she helps with the case and stand up to a whole town of people. And most importantly we see her flirt and make head way with Ellis . The man she should be with and not his brother . But that is another story . Ellis is he sheriff and all around good guy. He is there to save the day and rescue Verity when things go off the rails and boy they do go off the rails at one point . The rest of the cast of characters are your typical small town folks . We have the families that have founded the town and think they own every thing . To the people that just don't want to get involved in the whole mess .
The author takes on a fun filled adventure ride that takes us to the heart of the matter . She mixes mystery and adventure and then throws in some romance in to boot. You get a great feeling for small town life and what they do when one of their own is murdered. The story is fasted paced and will have you turning pages all night .
