Publisher's Summary

From New York Times best-selling author Angie Fox, the first book in the new Southern Ghost Hunter mysteries.
One simple mistake, for a girl who is about to lose her family home, releases the ghost of a long-dead gangster and opens Verity Long's eyes to a whole new world.
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 to 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. Ellis Wyatt is in possession of a stunning historic property haunted by some of Sugarland, Tennessee's finest former citizens. Only some of them are growing restless - and destructive. He hires Verity to put an end to the disturbances.
But soon Verity learns there's more to the mysterious estate than floating specters, secret passageways, and hidden rooms. There's a modern-day mystery afoot, one that hinges on a decades-old murder. Verity isn't above questioning the living or the dead. But can she discover the truth before the killer finds her?

Over the top narration ruins the story

I actually found the story to be charming and light-hearted. The characters were quirky and overall likable. I also loved the Southern setting. However, Tavia Gilbert's over-the-top narration proved to be very distracting. She didn't so much "narrate" the story as "perform" it - with all the gusto and unnecessary histrionics of a high school production. When the character is feeling mildly sad and teary - Ms. Gilbert actually cried while reading?! She managed to turn a sweet paranormal cozy into "Apocalypse Now"! After two hours of listening to her bi-polar style of narration (three cups of chamomile tea and a valium later), I had to switch to my Kindle to read the rest of the story. I already purchased Book 2 in this series, needless to say that I will opt out of listening to it; will choose to read it instead.

Slow down!

I put the narration down to .75. Everything in the book is performed in crisis mode which gets very tiresome to listen to. The story itself wasn't bad once I reduced the speed but I won't buy the next one unless it's a new narrator or the performers learn to tone it down. Sheesh.
