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.

I was going to take a long break from the series to focus on other stuff BUT I had a super hankering so I broke my promise. I meannnnnn it has been since Jan since I read one....so four months (nearly five) seems fair? Right????

We follow Verity and her ghost sidekick, Frankie, right after the last book. She is called in by the head of the Sugarland social and is invited to join their group undercover and investigate the strange happenings of the group's historic HQ. Verity will stumble upon a fresh body that seems like an accident, but due to a warning from a ghost earlier....it was def a murder. She will need to get the help of long-dead citizens of Sugarland, Frankie, and her love Ellis to help. 

I would recommend at least reading the book before this one since there are some references and things that are happening because of the last one. 

These are just so much fun!!! We get a mystery with ghosts, a cute skunk, and a cute hunk. I adore this series so much. 

The mysteries and twists were good. I had my guesses, but I was never sure. I feel like I pointed the finger at everyone so I was right at one point or another, but there were some red herrings for sure. There is one character that I am mad at that...that person seriously needs a kick swift kick of needs. GRR. Slippery Mfer. 

I loved the side ghosties here. I loved their little mystery and secrets that finally come out. That just added something special. 

Awwww and Frankie. His little side story is adorable. I don't want to spoil anything. But cutteeeeee. 

And the narrator is fantastic as per normal. She is becoming one of my faves. 

In the end, one of my favorites of this series. So much fun. Can't wait to read the next one! 5 stars.
