  • Frankie's story

    I enjoyed this book and learning more about Frankie and his family, however, it made the first part of this book move a bit slowly. Additionally, while inevitable, Verity's fighting with Ellis was a bit sad. I love this series and normally laugh through each book, but didn't do that this time. Yes, there were bits of humor, but not as much or as funny as the earlier books. Having said that, I really liked the ending and the way everything came together. If you're a fan of the series, you will want to read this for all of the characters' histories that are revealed. If you're new to the series, you would enjoy more if you've read the prior books. I'm giving this one 3.5 stars, but rounding up to 4 stars, mostly because, while an entertaining story, it was missing most of the humor the series is known for. I love this authors' work and she remains on my must read authors' list.

  • Can't get enough of this series!

    Angie Fox is absolutely one of my go to authors when I want mystery and a bit of romance. We've been building up to the mystery of Frankie's killer for a long time and we found out who at the end of the last book, but not the why. This book sees Frankie trying to confront his killer and at long last we find out the why, and it was a shocker. We also see that Verity and Elis are a bit on the outs after the events in the asylum and an unlikely person is determined to see them happy together. Add in a bit of the adorable Lucy and some hoots of secondary characters and you have yourself one great book that I couldn't put down! Highly recommended!

  • A keeper and best overall yet

    The latest Angie Fox Southern Ghost Hunter book starts off with a great laugh. I won’t spoil it, but it involves Lucy, Verity’s pet skunk, and a pink purse. Verity is a Southern gal who has a sweet pet skunk named Lucy, a 1920’s mobster-ghost sidekick, Frankie, and a sheriff boyfriend. Frankie can help her see and experience the past and that’s allowed Verity to solve several murders, both in the ghostly past 1920’s and present. Verity is a little sassier in this tale and Frankie has become a little more sensitive as they close in on the person who shot Frankie all those years ago – and why. Along the way, Verity and her boyfriend, Ellis, have some rocky times, which really worried me. Her ex-boyfriend, Beau, who is Ellis’s brother – another whole story there! – is also hip-deep in this book and becomes a real surprise. There is no way to guess at how this story ends, but you won’t be disappointed.

  • A Rollercoaster of Emotions

    It’s a Great story. It dug deeper into Frankie’s history & made me sad & frustrated as it took me along for the emotional ride with Verity & Ellis. I’m team Verity all the way!

  • Verity & Frankie are at it again!

    Southern Bred and Dead by Angie Fox is the 9th tale in The Southern Ghost Hunter Mysteries. It can be read as a standalone if you are new this engaging paranormal series. Verity Long lives with her pet skunk, Lucy and her ghostly friend, Frankie “the German” Winkelmann. One day Verity accidentally dumped Frankie’s ashes out of the urn and onto a rose bush. That is the day she met her first ghost--Frankie and it has been a wild ride ever since. I thought Southern Bred and Dead was well-written with developed characters and steady pacing. Sugarland, Tennessee is a small Southern town full of quirky residents. We get to meet Maybelle Clemens who is quite a character. She comes from a family of ministers, so she likes to go out of her way to shock people with her behavior. I liked all the action in this book. Verity has her hands full in Southern Bred and Dead. She must find out who killed Jorie Davis, who was an old friend of her grandmother’s. Frankie wants to know why his brother, Lou killed him. To top it all off, Ellis is not happy with Verity’s ghost hunting business and it has caused a rift in their relationship. The mystery surrounding the death of Jorie was multifaceted. It was interesting and fun to solve (I love figuring out the guilty party before the reveal). I liked learning more about Frankie and his family. We finally learn why Frankie was killed. I found Southern Bred and Dead to be a more serious book than the others in this series. There are humorous moments especially with Maybelle, but it lacked that laugh-out-loud humor that is normally present. That did not hinder my reading enjoyment. I love visiting Sugarland with its unique residents, cozy small-town feel, plethora of specters, and Southern manners. Let us not forget the adorable Lucy. My favorite part of the book was Verity at the speakeasy. She gets to enjoy some jazz music, meet a new friend, and experience a felonious first courtesy of Frankie. Southern Bred and Dead is a delight with menacing mobsters, frightening phantoms, a deadly dagger, a bothered beau, a pious pastor, and a sweet skunk.
