Another wonderful ghostly adventure with Verity and her sidekick, Frankie. This story has murder, mayhem and an ex that won’t take no for an answer. There is plenty of family drama and even a bit of romance as Verity with Frankie tries to find out who killed a young woman in the town’s library. But, this mystery is more than who is the murderer! Town secrets come out and they will change a lot of the town’s history. This story is thrilling and humorous and so much more. I loved it. And, though it is part of a series, it can be read without having read any other of the books. Yet, you’re going to want to read them all as these stories are fantastic! I can’t wait to read the next one. This is small town life, real and uncensored.
Verity loves her town’s yearly reenactment of the Civil War battle that was fought there. This year though a documentary is being filmed and a large display is being set up in the library. Verity’s sister is helping there and has asked Verity to show up early to help set up. What neither expect to find is one of the volunteers killed and hidden under a table. Who did it and why? Are there any witnesses? Verity knows there are ghosts in the library to ask, but what will they tell her?
A haunted library is no place for a girl who can see ghosts, but when Verity Long stumbles on a dead body in the middle of the main reading room, she has to believe someone…even a dead someone…must have witnessed the crime. Her ghostly sidekick Frankie warns her to stay out of it. The very alive, very handsome deputy sheriff, Ellis Wydell, inadvertently places her directly in the middle of it. And her ex-fiancé, Ellis’s brother, is back with an agenda of his own. Undaunted, Verity presses forward, uncovering scandalous secrets, long-forgotten ghosts, and a shocking trail of clues that places her directly in the path of a killer.
