Murder on the Sugarland Express

Description from Goodreads:

Verity Long is overdue for a little R&R (rest and romance) with her boyfriend Ellis, and a vintage train trip through the Tennessee mountains seems like just the ticket. The Sugarland Express carries history and nostalgia in every compartment, and Verity is determined to enjoy it—without ghostly interference. But the ghosts have other plans…

On a dark, desolate night nearly a century ago, the train was stranded in the mountains and a young woman was found stabbed to death in her locked compartment. The murder was never solved, and a ghostly Belgian detective is still pursuing the case from the grave.

To Verity’s dismay, all of the ghostly suspects are back. And when history repeats itself and a new murder mirrors the old, it’s up to Verity and her friends to discover which of the passengers—dead or alive—could be behind the murders before the killer strikes again.



Thank you to Netgalley, Moose Island Books and Angie Fox for the digital copy that I received in exchange for an honest review.

Murder on the Sugarland Express by Angie Fox has 250 pages and was published by Moose Island Books in 2017.

Murder on the Sugarland Express is yet another masterpiece in a delightful series of books by Angie Fox. In this particular book, Verity and Ellis decide to take a much needed vacation. However, they soon realize that the privacy they crave will be difficult to attain with Frankie and Molly in tow.

I love the characters in this book. Even Lucy, although she isn’t mentioned much in this one. (I imagine it would be difficult to travel with a pet skunk.) Beau finally steps up a bit and may be making some much needed changes in his life. It will be interesting to see if he keeps it up or falls back into his jerky habits.

The pacing is perfect. Murder on the Sugarland Express is packed with action and suspense and will keep the reader turning the pages.

Recommended for fans of paranormal fiction and cozy mysteries.
