    Great mystery and great author!

    Another fantastic Angie Fox book! This time Verity and Ellis are taking a romantic vacation on the rehabbed Sugarland Express. They planned on leaving everyone (alive and dead) in Sugarland, but of course things never work out the way they plan. This is a fantastic trapped on a train mystery with perfect timing of being released so close to the threlease of Murder on the Orient Express. It’s obvious the author was influenced by Agatha Christie, but the mystery and the characters are all Ms. Fox’s! Highly recommended!

    A Classic Murder Mystery with a Contemporary Twist

    Angie Fox has given us the sixth full length installment in her popular Southern Ghost Hunter series with Murder on the Sugarland Express. Take everything you love about classic British mysteries and give them a generous contemporary, paranormal twist, and you have another exciting read with Verity Long and her mismatched crew of friends, followers, and tag-alongs. This volume has Verity and hot cop boyfriend, Ellis, boarding the newly restored Sugarland train for a week of rest and relaxation and a chance to be a normal couple without Ellis’ toxic family, their meddling hometown neighbors, or Verity’s unexpected, unwanted, and generally uncooperative sidekick, former gangster and formerly living human, Frankie the German, hanging about and causing trouble. But when Frankie wheedles his way onboard with Verity and Ellis, you know you’re in for a wild, unforgettable trip of a lifetime. Fox has carved out a bit more of this emerging genre, mixing paranormal with contemporary mysteries, using a classic setting, and throwing in a bit of well crafted romance, in both worlds. The parallels are cleverly included and make for another can’t-put-it-down tale of love and loss. These books are always delightfully character driven, and this latest offering is no exception. Fox seems to have settled quite comfortably with her heroine’s development. Not only is the relationship with Ellis growing, but we’re seeing sides of Verity that bring her closer to the surface. Escape is such an important element in reading fiction, but it’s particularly enjoyable when you have a protagonist that you can relate to, and Verity is becoming that favorite beloved character with every new work. The nod to mystery icon Agatha Christie is evident in more than just the title. There is a noticeable attention to detail that brought the piece alive. From the description of the train, to character features and clothing, you can clearly envision the settings, people, and parts to this story. As usual, the ending is fast-paced and unexpected, exactly what you want a mystery to be. This book also comes at the ideal time of year! Not only is it a great gift for the reader on your list, but it’s the perfect way to take some “me” time during the busy holiday season. Grab your coffee/tea/hot chocolate and snuggle up for a fun couple of hours with quirky characters and memorable storylines. Murder on the Sugarland Express is another hit in this entertaining series.

    Loved it!

    loved it! Verity Long and Frankie the German are at it again! I love how Angie is able to put humor, romance, ghosts, mystery, murder, thrills, and a little bit of history all in one zany book. Verity and Ellis decide they need a romantic get away which definitely does not go as planned. Instead of romance and relaxation, Verity is immediately knee deep in ghosts and murder mystery. If you are looking for a light hearted mystery, this is definitely for you. No matter what the situation, Verity is able to conduct herself like a proper southern lady. Definite must read!!

    Another Winner

    Trouble is brewing in Sugarland so Ellis decides a nice quiet journey on the newly reopened Sugarland express is just the ticket to Peace... it tours the historic south, it should have been a nice quiet vacation. Only Frankie decides to invite himself, he's a little broody because he's having lady problems, or so he thinks. Verity being unable to say no to Frankie opens the trip up to ghostly interference... There's a decades old ghostly murder mystery and a new murder that mirrors, meaning they are now stuck on a train with a murder! *Gasp* This leaves Verity and Ellis with nothing to do but solve the murder before anymore of the passengers are harmed. They also have other problems as some of the trouble that was brewing in Sugarland follows. Ellis really should have learned by now that where ever Verity goes drama and mayhem will follow.... I really like these mysteries they are fairly quick easy fun reads. Frankie is the cutest ghost I've encountered, his drama cracks me up. I enjoy Ellis and Verity's relationship they are super cute together. What I don't care for is the on going drama between Virginia and Verity; there will always be a little drama between Beau and Verity, however I expected after 6 books to have Virginia a little more accepting of Verity.
