The Haunted Heist by Angie Fox
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
This series is filled with fun and entertaining hijinks by the wonderful mix of ghosts and small town characters. If you like a little paranormal in your mystery (and a teensy bit of romance), this series is definitely worth a peek.
Verity has been having a tough go of it. She lives in a small town with a long memory. Sure, breaking up with her groom at the wedding and keeping her reasoning a secret wasn't exactly going to make her a star, but I don't think she anticipated just how much it would change her. What started out as a bit of "minimalist living" (aka selling all her possessions because she is now broke) ended up introducing her to her new ghostly BFF, Frankie, who she inadvertently trapped. So, fast forward a little bit and we are back with Verity, still mostly in the same situation. She's trying to free Frankie (eventually) and she's still broke, but she has now mostly embraced her ghost hunter-like skills. Oh, and she's still got the maybe-boyfriend Ellis, who is just about the best man ever.
So what's this installment about (other than moving along the above larger storylines)? Well, Verity appears to be finally making headway in her life. Being asked to do a presentation of her design work for one of the town's biggest businessmen should have been a good thing. And it was - until the murder. Verity at another crime scene isn't exactly new in town, but she is still determined to do the right thing and use her ghost connections to try to solve the mystery. While I had my guesses along the way, I wasn't able to guess how this one ended, which is always good. This was a fun adventure in the life of Verity and friends. I was happy to dive back into this ghostly world and can't wait to see what's next for this bunch of characters.
