Sweet Tea and Spirits; Angie Fox


Title: Sweet Tea and Spirits
Series: Southern Ghost Hunter Mysteries #5
Author: Angie Fox
Genre: Cozy Mystery; Paranormal
Publication Date: April 25, 2017
Publisher: Moose Island Books

Southern girl Verity Long is about as high society as her pet skunk. Which is why she’s surprised as anyone when the new head of the Sugarland social set invites her to join the "it" girls. But this is no social call. Verity’s new client needs her to go in undercover and investigate strange happenings at the group’s historic headquarters.

But while spirits are whispering hints of murder, the socialites are more focused on Verity’s 1978, avocado-green Cadillac. And when Verity stumbles upon a fresh body, she's going to need the long-dead citizens of Sugarland to help her solve the crime. Good thing she has the handsome deputy sheriff Ellis Wydell on hand, as well as her ghostly sidekick Frankie. The bad thing is, the ghosts are now whispering about the end of a certain ghost hunter.


Hello Fellow Reader,

So I don't know why I've never thought this before or maybe this book just highlighted it more but Verity is a very, very, very bad investigator. She's just so trusting and naive, Come on Verity you're investigating a murder, you need to be a little suspicious! Also, I didn't like Verity as much as I usually do, typically I love her but she was being a little rude to Frankie. She wants his power but is very judgemental and mean towards him sometimes. I do like that she was called out for it at the end.

I really liked the story in this one despite not enjoying Verity as much. I knew who did it, but I don't read these for the mystery aspect of the book, I enjoy them because they are quick, entertaining and easy reads. Ellis, of course, was amazing and supportive, we also meet some new characters who I hope we see more of and there were actually some moments that I liked Virginia. I know that last one is a bit of a shocker. 

Overall, I can't wait to see where Fox takes this series and if Verity wises up to become a strong investigator.
