A haunted church. A ghastly death. Can Verity clear up the case before she’s buried way over her head?

Verity Long would really like a day off. Between uncovering the culprit who capped her gangster ghost housemate and dodging the bomb her boyfriend just dropped on their relationship, her spiritual calling has gotten complicated. But when she steps out for a little fun at a church fundraiser, she has another mystery on her hands when a family friend plunges from the bell tower.

With her pet skunk and a spectral mobster buddy in tow, Verity charges back into the world of furious phantoms. But as she follows a shocking trail of clues through a dangerous speakeasy, a possessed movie theatre, and a spooky mob safehouse, she could end up sleeping with the ghostly fishes.

Can Verity lay everything to rest before a mysterious murderer reads her last rites?

Rating: Clean and Wholesome
Paranormal Cozy Mystery Romance (with a cute pet skunk!) (Amazon)


The characters are well rounded and well developed. It does not matter is Verity is helping the living or the dead, she will give it her all. Even if it causes trouble with Ellis, her boyfriend. Hopefully they will both be able to work things out and get back to being a couple in love. Beau, her ex and Ellis brother, showed a more caring side and really came through for Verity when she needed it. We also get to see a softer side of Frankie, but do not tell him. And as usual, Lucy stole the show, she is just so cute.

The writing style flows smoothly and it was a quick, easy read. The author’s descriptive writing pulled me into the story from the very beginning and through much of the story I felt like I was right there, watching all of the action taking place. The mystery was well plotted and I was not sure who the killer was until it was revealed at the end.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a well crafted cozy mystery. Anytime you can spend time with Verity, Frankie and Lucy, you know it will be a good time.

I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book and provided my honest review.
