    ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS!!!

    I adore cozy mysteries, love gripping suspense and totally addicted to anything supernatural but throw in a little sweet romance and I'm totally smitten! Unfortunately, it's often difficult to find all four elements in one book but fortunately, I've found an author that brilliantly combines them all into one exceptional story. Angie Fox has delighted her readers yet again with Deader Homes Than Gardens, the fourth full-length standalone release in the Southern Ghost Hunters Mysteries Series and I totally loved it! Although this is a complete, full-length standalone novel which can be enjoyed all on its own, I would still highly recommend reading the first book of the series, Southern Spirits which will give you the premise and backstory for all the releases in the collection. I became a diehard Angie Fox fan several years ago after reading The Accidental Demon Slayer, the outrageously funny first release in Fox's best-selling Biker Witches Mystery Series, another fabulous collection I highly recommend, especially if you love your mystery generously laced with side-splitting humor. But I digress, let's talk about The Haunted Heist. The book is imaginative, unique, exciting, cute, sweet, heartwarming, well crafted and well edited with a beautiful, eye-catching cover. The narrative is exceptionally well written in the first person from the perspective of the heroine, Verity Long. The dialogue is smart, well executed and flows effortlessly. I love all the components of this story but it's the characters that completely steal the show. They are fascinating, captivating, realistic, engaging, relatable and humorous. Fox skillfully combines these elements to craft a deliciously cute and delightfully entertaining whodunit filled to the brim with danger, drama, action, mystery, suspense, humor, ghosts and even a little heartbreaking angst and heartwarming romance. What did I love about this story? Everything! Would I recommend this book? You bet and I am - to everyone! Will I read this author again? Absolutely - just as soon as she release her next book! Verity Long is back but life has still been nothing but difficult during the last several months for the beautiful former aspiring graphic designer despite successfully solving the murder of her best friend's uncle. She's lost absolutely everything after breaking off her engagement last year with her cheating, now ex-fiance Beau Wydell, youngest and favored son of wealthy, influential town aristocrat Virginia Wydell. Her graphic design services had been in demand until her almost mother-in-law used her influence to ruin her and her business. Now it seems no one in Sugarland needs her services so she's decided on a new occupation and has started a new business...as a ghost hunter. Yup, she's officially out of the closet and has been for two months, or rather since her interview with Ovis Dupree, guest investigative reporter from the local newspaper, The Sugarland Gazette. And that's not the only change in her life. Her kinda-sorta-maybe but very hush-hush and on-the-sly boyfriend, deputy sheriff Ellis Wydell is now her public main squeeze! And yes, Ellis and Beau are related - they're brothers! Huh? Oh yes, brothers! As you can imagine, the news was not well received by Virginia Wydell. And let's not forget her sweet little pet skunk Lucy and her very dead, black and white gangster ghost housemate, Frankie. Yup, I said ghost who has become trapped on Verity's property when she unknowingly dumped the ashes from his urn onto the roots of her rose bush. Oh my! After all, she had no idea what they were and what would happen. And now, she's stuck with a not so nice criminal from the flapper era, no money, no case, no prospects but she does have a hot hunky boyfriend! And Verity has her first official case as a ghost buster...uh...ghost hunter. Thank heavens! The only thing more empty than her bank account is her pantry! Retired postman and respected citizen of Sugarland, Lee Treadwell, has hired Verity to de-ghost his family's old estate, Rock Fall Mansion, which no one has set foot in for 90 years. Lee wants to renovate the property, restoring the house and grounds to its former glory, and hopes to find some authentic Egyptian artifacts inside which, if sold, could offset the cost of the renovation. There's just one problem. Everyone in town knows the property is haunted... but it also may be cursed. Oh my! Here we go again!

    Interesting Concept

    Well carried out. I enjoyed the story and the characters, both past and present. I’ll read more as I find them.

    Another great one from Angie Fox!

    Angie Fox does it again! This was an amazing quick read, that had everything I usually want in a book series, humor, mystery, romance, and hijinks. I may have to add snarky ghosts and lovable skunks to my future list. Frankie is still stuck to Verity's property, but instead of just whining about it, (there's plenty of whining too) he's trying to make the best of it with the South Town Gang, of course with hilarious and annoying (to at least Verity) outcomes. The ghosts that Verity encounters in this book are like none she's ever faced before, will she be able to help Lee reclaim his ancestral home, or will these ghosts prove to Verity that ghost hunting is for the birds. Highly recommended.
