Publisher's Summary

USA Today best-selling series!
Southern belle Verity Long is back in business - as a ghost hunter. Now all she has to do is visit the town's creepiest mansion and exorcise a family of vengeful spirits. Piece of cake. After all, ghosts love her and need her...that is until she meets the ghosts of Rock Fall mansion. They'll do anything to keep their murderous secrets hidden within the cliffside fortress - even if that means getting rid of one meddling ghost hunter.
With the entire town skeptical and scrutinizing her every move, Verity struggles to uncover the century-old mystery behind the house. And when she stumbles upon a very fresh, very dead body, she realizes there's more to it than she ever imagined. With the help of her sexy cop boyfriend, Ellis, and her ghostly gangster sidekick, Frankie, she braves the overgrown gardens, the desolate family cemetery, and the haunted mansion that have been locked away for generations. But can Verity unearth the truth before she's the next one buried on the deadly grounds?

Series is doing a great job of being a consistent

So I really enjoyed this book and loved watching Verity commit to being a ghost hunter and heading straight into a job. I think the best part of the book though was that Verity really handled much of this book on her own. Ellis was very much a supporting character in this story versus being with her for all the adventures and Frankie was just plain not willing to help.

The mystery was fabulous and very different from what I expecting with a book series being so entrenched in the southern culture. Mummies and Egyptian curses was a great addition to Sugarland’s already rich history. Verity and Ellis relationship is still too cute for words and I enjoy how accepting he is of her and Lucy the skunk.

I guess by only issue with the book and why I didn’t give it 5 stars is new dynamic to Verity and Frankie’s relationship because I personally felt Frankie was a total ass in this book and his last minute pep talk to Verity seemed very out of place for him considering how he treated her throughout the rest of the book. His whole reluctance to be even remotely helpful seemed very out of character for him based on the past books. I understand being tied to Verity’s property is a drain on him and honestly I’m kind of ready for that to be over.

Angie Fox did a fabulous job of describing the house and grounds of Rock Fall mansion and it painted a very detailed in my head. The other good thing Angie does is keep Verity true to her character and I love that. The character has stayed consistent throughout the four books and hasn’t started to annoy me yet which usually happens by now in most series. I also have no complaints as Tavia Gilbert has now become the voice of Verity and I will accept now substitutes.

Concerns: Either give her a good steady job with income or paying clients cause after this fourth book if I have to read about Dollar Store Ramen noodles I think I’m going to scream.

Homicidal Ghost

Wow!!!I have to say this is my favorite so far. This was verity's first job as a ghost hunter. Boy did things get "hairy". Being chased by a homicidal ghost and being locked in a haunted house can be quite upsetting. Well at least she had Ellis with her. Oh and almost being pushed off a cliff by the ghost. Yep. Ghost hunting can be dangerous.
