Southern Spirits – The Southern Ghost Hunter Mysteries – Book 1

Description from Goodreads:

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 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 Wydell 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?


Southern Spirits by Angie Fox is a refreshingly fun paranormal cozy mystery. It is a fast, easy read that leaves you wanting more. Lucky for you this is just the first in a series. It is not particularly scary so if you are looking for horror, this is not the book for you. However, it is full of quirky humor and southern sass.

After the first few pages I thought, “Oh, no. This is going to be bad.”  But, I was wrong. Keep going.  It definitely picks up.

If you enjoy cozy mysteries you will love Southern Spirits. Plus, right now it is free on Amazon.

Rated: 4 PM Spiders
