Just because she can see the dead doesn’t mean Verity Long wants to spend her days hunting ghosts. Instead, she’s over the moon to land a marketing job at the local bank…until she finds her new boss dead in the vault. Even her ghost friend, Frankie, knows that's no way to start a career.Thoughts on The Haunted Heist: I can't lie. I find Verity's stubborn refusal to take up ghost hunting as a full time career amusing. I mean, I get it. Ghost hunting is a big change from graphic design, but given how her almost-MIL destroyed that career for her I think it's time she start considering it.
Relieved to let the police take charge, Verity steps aside, bound and determined to keep her ghost sightings to herself. But when she learns the main suspect in the murder is a very crooked, very dead mobster, Verity knows it's up to her to solve the case.
She teams up with her ghostly gangster buddy Frankie, as well as the irresistible and charming Ellis, as the three of them search haunted mob hideouts, hidden passageways, and historic cemeteries for the facts behind the heist of the century—and a modern-day motive for murder.
Too bad uncovering the truth could very well make Verity the next victim...
Especially since she has a few key mortals who already know what she can do. *fingers guns to those in the know*
I'm digging the idea of Verity and Ellis together. Verity brings up some very real speed bumps they'll have to figure out if they want things to work between them. Namely, his family. I mean, can you imagine how AWKWARD family dinners are going to be when Ellis's mother is so determined to destroy Verity's good name? Or the whole ex-fiance thing? Yikes. I don't envy her that.
Those issues aside, Verity and Ellis have some rollicking good times when it comes to her ghost hunting. Secret passages and ghostly shoot outs and all manner of fun things. *thumbs up*
This entire series has been fun and fast paced with enough mystery to keep me happy. Bring on the ghosts!
