Southern girl Verity Long is about as high society as her pet skunk. Which is why she’s surprised as anyone when the new head of the Sugarland social set invites her to join the "it" girls. But this is no social call. Verity’s new client needs her to go in undercover and investigate strange happenings at the group’s historic headquarters.Thoughts on Sweet Tea and Spirits: Verity's at it again! Which is kinda understandable considering her abilities with ghosts. Or, the abilities she can borrow to interact with ghosts. Whatever.
But while spirits are whispering hints of murder, the socialites are more focused on Verity’s 1978, avocado-green Cadillac. And when Verity stumbles upon a fresh body, she's going to need the long-dead citizens of Sugarland to help her solve the crime. Good thing she has the handsome deputy sheriff Ellis Wydell on hand, as well as her ghostly sidekick Frankie. The bad thing is, the ghosts are now whispering about the end of a certain ghost hunter.
Anyway. Verity, our resident ghost talker, is thrown into the middle of more danger and mayhem. To be honest, I'm almost (*almost*) more intrigued by her tangled relationship issues than her ghostly mystery. Which is not to say I don't enjoy the ghost part, because I DO. It's just...her relationship things are AWESOME. Dating the black sheep brother of her former fiance whose mother actively tries to discredit everything Verity does. Actually, Mama Wydell wasn't as insufferable in this book. She might *gasp* be coming around.
Don't worry, I'm not holding my breath on that one.
I'm still digging Verity's ghost problems (although, Frankie might have found something NEW to occupy his time other than being a former mobster and all around wacky guy! Yay!) and her ability to get herself involved in ALL TYPES of crazy things. As always, I can't wait to see what shenanigans she gets into next.
