Review: Southern Spirits
Southern Spirits by Angie Fox
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
This adorable read was a complete joy from start to finish. Quick paced, well written, fun, and cute, the book starts what could be a completely addictive new series.
Verity is a woman scorned and her small southern town will not let her forget her past. Being the polite young woman that she is, she has let her ex-fiance spread horrible rumors without stooping to his level. Unfortunately, his family pretty much runs the town and has led her to both her financial and social downfall. On the verge of losing her house, she has sold everything except a hideous vase filled with dirt. Here's here her luck turns around... I guess? Turns out, the dirt was actually ashes, and by rinsing them out in her rose bushes, she's trapped with a ghostly gangster sidekick.
The real mystery elements of the story come in when her ex-fiance's brother ends up contracting Verity for some ghostbusting work (against his better judgement). Throw in some detective work, and this book really makes for a pretty comprehensive read. You get everything you want in one nice little bundle - action, mystery, paranormal, romance, and adorable southern characters. I can't wait to see where this series goes!
