Seven is my lucky number and I'm feeling very lucky to have found such a wonderful cozy-mystery series as the Southern Ghost Hunter Mysteries Series. This book can be read as a standalone, but then you would miss the ghostly adventures that lead up to this one and, believe me, the ride is a wild one and Lucky Number 7 is no different. Quirky characters, a moody ghost and a twisty mystery, or two, to solve, "Pecan Pies and Dead Guys" is a fun addition to this fantastic series. Verity Long has an otherworldly housemate she has inadvertently trapped on her property. Frankie is a 1920's era gangster who has both helped and hindered Verity in the past. You know the old saying: "When life hands you lemons, make lemonade." Well, life has handed Verity a ghost so she became a Ghost Hunter. Frankie has come to the notice of a long dead detective who can't find peace until he solves a case he was working when he died, and after almost 100 years the good detective is no closer to that end. Frankie and Verity bring fresh eyes and a new, but unwanted, perspective to the murder of a crooked judge. The murder took place at a weekend house party straight out of the Gatsby era with all the opulence and over the top trimmings included. The Detective has narrowed down the suspects and now it is up to Verity and Frankie to solve the case, or Frankie will be sent to ghost prison for eternity. In the earthly realm, Verity's boyfriend, Ellis Wydell, has his own case and Verity has been receiving mysterious pecan pies. Verity's ex-fiancée and Ellis' brother, Beau, has a new girlfriend and is having a mid-life crisis. He wants to quit the law firm and become an artist. His mother, Virginia, blames Verity and is not happy.

    Pecan Pies and Dead Guys by Ange Fox 7th in the Southern Ghost Hunter Mystery series. Includes a lot of background but reads best if at least a few of the previous have been read. Two mysteries overlap in this book, one on the ghostly plane and the second when a pecan pie is left on Verity’s porch. Food is a normal gift in the southern town of Sugarland, but it usually comes with a note or for a reason but not so in this case.

Inspector De Clercq is back demanding help from Frankie in solving another murder at a weekend house party in 1928. Decadence rules as Frankie and Verity investigate. It was amusing to have a ghost point out the tiny phone room with numbers still written on the old wall and then turn around and recognize a wireless cell phone that Verity uses to take photos of the room. A fun mystery series. I love all the secondary characters from Melody the town librarian to Lucy the pet skunk. A favorite author and series. Lightweight with Southern manners. A teaser to the next book is included in the last pages.

    Another cracking mystery for Verity to solve with a little help from her friends ! If you are new to this series then I actually do think this works as a stand-alone as there’s enough background information to make it interesting. Verity might be more in touch with the spirit world then most but to truly experience it she needs assistance from her resident ghost Frankie and it’s never going to be straightforward.

If you are new to this series then I actually do think this works as a stand-alone as there’s enough background information to make it interesting. Verity might be more in touch with the spirit world then most but to truly experience it she needs assistance from her resident ghost Frankie and it’s never going to be straightforward. So when Frankie actually needs her help to escape a spiritual prison Verity is ready to dive in but going back into the past with all its deadly secrets puts Verity in danger. Now you would think that’s enough for Verity to contend with but alas no as there’s a murderer hiding in Sugarland and they’ve got Verity in their sights ! I mentioned initially that this can be read without the previous books but honestly there’s quite a journey that several supporting characters have gone through and with this story there are certainly what could be huge developments on the horizon. If I’m brutal I actually felt the mystery from the past had a lot more going for it with suspense, danger and real emotion. What didn’t quite work as well for this reader was the killer stalking Verity as I had actually worked out very easily who it was. That having been said this book had so much going for it with humour, whimsy ( who doesn’t love a cute skunk?) and absolutely bonkers ghostly goings on . I always want a touch more romance but with the sweet and slightly sad ending I can truly say this author never fails to delight. This voluntary take is of a copy I requested from Netgalley and my thoughts and comments are honest and I believe fair

This book was great to read especially after my last read was pretty heavy. While PECAN PIES AND DEAD GUYS has some pretty grizzly murders and danger; I enjoy that it's complimented with the backdrop of small town gossip chains, Southern hospitality rules, and passive aggressive cattiness. I liked the ghostly mystery Verity and Frankie were pulled into and they make a pretty fun team of amateur detectives to explore spooky old mansions with. The ghost mystery revolved around solving a murder that happened at a pretty cool 1920s era party. I enjoyed the concept of the party ghosts (and ghost animals!) being stuck at this party for decades until the murder is solved. There was a modern murder mystery that Verity and her boyfriend Ellis are dealing with at the same time which I wasn't a fan of partly because anytime we have to deal with Ellis' mom or brother I cringe. Ellis' mom is a horrible woman -who I disliked more than the big bad 1920s ghost- and Ellis' brother (Verity's ex) comes off as just really dumb. The modern mystery had some suspense and danger but I kept wanting to go back to the ghost party mystery. Both mysteries were wrapped up nicely but I felt more invested in the ghosts' plight than the live people in this book. PECAN PIES AND DEAD GUYS shines when it focuses on Verity and Frankie's shenanigans solving the 1920s ghost party mystery but loses traction on the modern mystery. Not to say that I didn't enjoy this book. It was a blast to read and I love revisiting these characters except Ellis' mom.

The story kept me turning the pages as Ms. Fox introduced readers to a new/old venue on the edge of Summerland that was known for it's extravagant parties in the past. She did meet some really lovely and kind ghosts at the parties that assisted Verity during her investigation. However, poor Verity found herself in danger more than once which kept me gripping the edge of my seat. A quickly paced plot, descriptive writing and characters that are not only likable but lovable make this another rich paranormal cozy that is easy to read and hard to put down until the end. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book. All of the above opinions are my own.

    Delightful fun! Book 7 and Verity and Frankie are solving another mystery in the ghost realm. Add in an unidentified dead girl in the living realm, the worry that there is a serial killer in Sugarland and someone stalking Verity, well the action is non-stop. Of course Ellis and Beau and the rest of the gang all add to the fun and little Lucy keeps adding to the cute factor. Highly recommended.

Between hard-living ghosts and sugar-laden desserts, Verity has her work cut out for her. But will she uncover the secrets behind the pecan pies and dead guys? Or has she stumbled upon a recipe for disaster? A warm and witty paranormal cozy mystery! (Goodreads) Review: The characters are well developed and well rounded. Anytime that I get to spend with Verity and Lucy, her pet skunk, is time well spent. Verity and Ellis make a great couple and I enjoy seeing how their relationship is growing. And Ellis’s mother is still as nasty as ever, I hope one day she gets hers. The writing style flows smoothly and the book is an easy read. The author is very talented in her descriptive writing and through much of the book I felt like I was right there, watching all the ghosts in their togas, partying, and listening in on conversations. I liked the fact that there were a couple of mysteries to solve, a long ago one and a current one. There were plenty of suspects to consider and clues to sift through and were not easily solved, which is the way I like my mysteries. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a well crafted paranormal cozy. I am already looking forward to Verity’s and Frankie’s next ghostly adventure. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book and gave my honest opinion.

This is a cozy mystery told in 1st person POV for main character Verity Long. The series is about a woman named Verity who unknowingly cleans out a man named Frankie's ashes from an old vase looking jar into her rosebushes and it traps his ghost on her property allowing him to only leave when Verity takes his urn off the property. The ghost, Frankie, shows himself to her and so begins her ability to see ghosts. In this book, we have a couple of story-lines. There is a very current murder to solve when a young woman's body is found near an orchard. There is an old murder that a long dead detective is forcing Frankie and Verity to help him solve. He is unable to find peace until his work is done. The detective threatens to turn Verity's home and land into a maximum security prison for the worst of the criminal ghosts, unless Frankie and Verity solve the murder from long ago. The night of the murder is on a forced loop so Verity ends up right in the thick of things. In addition to those issues, Verity's ex-fiance, Beau, has gone off the deep end and has decided to quit his law-firm to become a mixed media artist and got himself a new girlfriend who loves living the artsy, no obligations, transient life. Obviously, this sets Virginia Wydell off into a tizzy and she demands Verity get involved and convince Beau to come back to his senses. And through all of this, we also have some mild tension with boyfriend Ellis because of Verity using her own methods to solve mysteries that aren't exactly within the law. There is a lot going on in Pecan Pies and Dead Guys. This book was quite entertaining, however I wish the author was better at allowing the readers to solve clues alongside Verity and Ellis. It's more of a bunch of random stuff happening that doesn't mean anything and then suddenly a big ah-ha and explanation at the end. Although, that being said, I knew who the current murder was and thought Verity was a complete airhead for not realizing it herself and putting herself into danger that was contrived by her being so dumb in that situation. The past few books, Frankie started to get on my nerves and now Frankie is absolutely on my last nerve! I'm hoping for some character growth where he is concerned. Even though I have started to get a bit bored with this series since it's not as much fun when there aren't clues along the way for me to solve and it is just a bunch of random stuff happening up until the big reveal at the end, I still love several aspects of the books. I beyond love the skunk Lucy and love that she has a full name: Lucille Desiree Long. So cute. I also love the relationship between Verity and Ellis. I am no longer binging the series but listening with a book or two from other authors in between and it is working out fine. I start to wonder what is happening and find myself getting back to the series fairly quickly. I'm not sure if I would enjoy reading this book as much as I enjoyed listening to it. The narrator really injects a lot of emotion into her reading and she really sells the suspense and fear. She does a really good job. Her voices are distinct and clear and her pronunciation is good.

Title: Pecan Pies and Dead Guys Series: Southern Ghost Hunters Mysteries Designation: Book 7 of Series, Full-Length, Standalone, NO Cliffhanger #cozymystery #sweetromance Author: Angie Fox My Rating: FIVE DELICIOUSLY CUTE STARS***** Ghosts, ghosts, and more ghosts, plus throw in not one but two baffling mysteries, a generous splash of spine-tingling suspense, a heaping helping of pulse-pounding danger, a light sprinkling of laugh out loud humor, along with a few puzzling pecan pies, and you have one heck of a recipe for murder, both past and present! I adore cozy mysteries, love gripping suspense, and completely addicted to anything supernatural but throw in a little sweet romance and I'm totally smitten! Unfortunately, it's often difficult to find all four elements in one book but fortunately, I've found an author that brilliantly combines them all into one exceptional story. Angie Fox has delighted her readers yet again with Pecan Pies and Dead Guys, a full-length standalone and seventh release in the Southern Ghost Hunters Mysteries Series and I totally loved it! Fox did an outstanding job of giving readers backstory for the series as well as the characters, and this book can certainly be read as a standalone, but I highly recommend, at least, reading the first book, Southern Spirits, which will introduce you to the Southern Ghost Hunter Mysteries world and most definitely enrich your reading experience.. I became a diehard Angie Fox fan five years ago after reading The Accidental Demon Slayer, the outrageously funny first release in Fox's best-selling Biker Witches Mystery Series, another fabulous collection I highly recommend, especially if you love your mystery generously laced with paranormal elements, side-splitting humor, and dreamy romance. But I digress, so let's talk about Pecan Pies and Dead Guys. The book is imaginative, unique, exciting, cute, sweet, heartwarming, and well edited. The narrative is beautifully written in the first-person with a single perspective from the heroine, Verity Long. The dialogue is smart, snappy, well executed, at times hilarious, and flows effortlessly. All the elements of this story have been well crafted and developed, but it's the large cast of instantly engaging characters who completely steal the show. They literally explode from the pages, grab your attention, engage your imagination, and completely capture your heart! Verity Long and her cast of endearing cohorts carry this entire series and have become my favorites in the cozy mystery genre. Fox skillfully combines every single one of these elements to craft a deliciously cute and delightfully entertaining whodunit filled to the brim with danger, drama, humor, ghosts, suspense, and plot twists, with even a little heartbreaking angst and heartwarming romance. Did I like this book? No, I LOVED it! It's my new favorite! Yeah, yeah, I know I say the same thing after every book in this series but I just can't help myself. lol.. I adore the Southern Ghost Hunters World and the fictional town of Sugarland, Tennessee as well as the vividly depicted characters Fox has created for this series. Verity Long is an absolute delight and Ellis Wydell is one hunk of burning love! lol... And never fear, Verity's gangster ghost Frankie Winkelmann, aka Frankie the German, from the flapper era is around to cause all kinds of trouble and Lucy, the pet skunk, is ever present for a little heartwarming comic relief. And the supporting characters in this cozy mystery completely stole my heart! I giggled, snorted, snuffled and sniffed through the entire story. Would I recommend it? You bet and I am, for ages twelve to a hundred and twelve! Angie Fox is a master of her craft and never fails to deliver a wonderfully layered whodunit of thrills, chills, and kills, expertly infusing events from both past and present to create a mystery within a mystery. Will I read this author again? Absolutely! Just as soon as she releases her next book! Was I entertained? Completely and totally entertained! Fabulous entertainment and an awesome read! Premise: Although the last year has been difficult for Verity Long, it has also been surprisingly busy for the beautiful former aspiring graphic designer from Sugarland Tennessee. Unfortunately, the one thing it hasn't been is profitable. Despite successfully solving several murders, life continues to be difficult. Verity is still very short on funds and desperately trying to hang on to the home she inherited from her grandmother. She lost absolutely everything after breaking off her engagement last year with her lying, cheating, now ex-fiance Beau Wydell, youngest and favorite son of wealthy, influential town aristocrat Virginia Wydell. Her graphic design services had been in demand until her almost mother-in-law used her influence to ruin her and her business. Had it been left up to the vengeful Virginia Wydell, Verity would have been tarred, feathered, and run out of town on a rail. Now it seems no one in Sugarland needs her services so she's embarked on a new career and a whole new business...as a ghost hunter. Yup, she's officially out of the closet and has been for months, or rather since her interview with Ovis Dupree, the geriatric guest investigative reporter from the local newspaper, The Sugarland Gazette. And that's not the only change in her life. Her kinda-sorta-maybe, once hush-hush, and on-the-sly boyfriend Deputy Sheriff Ellis Wydell is now her very public main squeeze! And yes, Ellis and Beau are related - they're brothers! Huh? Oh yes, brothers! As you can imagine, the news was not well received by Virginia or Beau Wydell. And let's not forget her sweet little pet skunk Lucy and her very dead, black and white gangster ghost housemate, Franklin Rudolph Winkelmann aka Frankie the German. Yup, I said ghost. Frankie became trapped on Verity's property when she unknowingly dumped the ashes from his urn onto the roots of her rose bush. Oh no! But in her defense, she had no idea what they were and what would happen. So until she can figure out a way to free Frankie, she's stuck with the not-so-nice wise guy criminal from the flapper era who has turned her backyard shed into a speakeasy and hideout for him and his ghost gang cronies. Verity is barely scraping by but on the bright side, she does still have her pet skunk, Lucy, a hot hunky boyfriend, her grandmother's houseand on occasion, Frankie does actually lend her, albeit begrudgingly, some of his power so she can see all those otherworldly things that go bump in the night. But things are looking up. At least, she's managed to solve a few cases. Now, if she could convince everyone to accept her new abilities and recent career change, she may be able to win over the citizens of Sugarland and make a real go of her ghost hunting business. Careful what you wish for, Verity; you could become a target yourself! The world turns, life goes on, and southern bell, super-sleuth Verity Long finds herself caught up in another dangerous investigation. Thankfully, or maybe not, the universe seems to have her on speed dial with dead bodies, from both past and present, popping up at every turn. And once again, Verity finds herself neck deep in another whodunit. But if there's one thing Verity does well, it's solving mysteries. With plenty of help from her gangster ghost housemate, a menagerie of spiritual cohorts of the ghostly plane, her friends, and her steady beau, Verity has become quite well known as Sugarland's very own ghost hunter extraordinaire. No, not that Beau, the lying, cheating Beau Wydell... her now, very public, no-longer-on-the-sly sweetie, Ellis Wydell, Sugarland Police Detective and Beau's older brother. Nothing like keeping it in the family! Unfortunately, Virginia Wydell, Sugarland's leading citizen, town matriarch and mother of the Wydell brothers, continues to seek retribution against Verity at every opportunity. Verity wants nothing more than to avoid Virginia and maintain the shaky peace between them, but when Ellis calls to ask for her help, there's no way she can refuse, especially after his steadfast support for the past year. An unidentified dead girl is found at the bottom of the ravine near Wilson's quarry and Ellis's uncanny spidey-senses go on high alert, questioning the coroner's accidental death finding. Ellis needs Verity's ghostly gifts to help him solve the case. But secrets are afoot, and Verity's plate is already full with another unsolved mystery involving the dead body of a former Sugarland judge murdered in 1928 at the Adair Estate. Frankie's future depends on Verity solving the 90-year-old case for Inspector Julian De Clercq, the ghost she and Frankie met a few weeks ago while on a Sugarland Express getaway with Ellis, a trip that quickly escalated into a murder investigation and another dangerous brush with death for Verity! Yikes! Of course, there's even more Wydell family drama to further complicate an already difficult situation. But on the bright side, Beau has done some serious soul-searching after the Sugarland Express debacle and turned over a new leaf, which he credits solely to Verity's influence, much to her and Ellis' dismay. Beau's decided to make some rather unorthodox changes in his life, which his mother and family vehemently oppose. He even has another girlfriend, Zoey Lee, a brand new resident of Sugarland and owner of the town's first food truck. And folks, Beau sure does know how to pick 'em. Not! lol... And to make matters even worse, it seems Verity has made an enemy, the living kind, and pecan pies from an unknown stalker have suddenly started showing up at Verity's home. Oh my! What's a southern ghost hunter to do? Take the high road, be the gracious southern lady her grandmother taught her to be, solve the case, rescue Frankie and her home from eternal imprisonment, save the day, stay alive, make time for a little canoodling with Ellis, and bless your little heart, of course! Whew! Verity may have bitten off more than she can chew this time. Can Verity put all the pieces together and solve the case before it's too late for her and Frankie? Or will it be death by pecan pie? We'll see!

Plus, Ellis, Verity's boyfriend has a murder on his hands and some in town don't believe in what Verity can see. Not to mention a down the road mother in law that is not a great person to her. Then we have Beau, Verity's ex fiancé dating a new lady in town Zoey who seems to want to cause trouble. Someone has been leaving Pecan pies on Verity's with one left killing a friend. Who can be doing all of this? An angry ghost? A person on Sugarland Tenn that hates her? I will be looking at other's in this series.

    I don’t know how she did it, but every book in the Southern Ghost Hunter Mysteries series just keep getting better and better. And made me feel like the next book couldn’t come soon enough. Although Verity officially was a professional ghost hunter, the ghost hunting job this time was not a paid job. It’s more of a turn-your-world-upside-down-if-you-don’t-succeed kind of job. Here we could see how Verity was a true friend, someone I definitely want to be best friend with. Some would say she’s so I don’t know how she did it, but every book in the Southern Ghost Hunter Mysteries series just keep getting better and better.

Some would say she’s so gullible, which might be true, but she’s also strong and able to face any hurdle thrown at her. I felt like punching a character or two here, or part of the town folks, for making her life so difficult. Anyway, the ghost hunting job was quite scary, though ended on a very sweet note. True love prevail! Verity and Ellis’ relationship was solid. They’re a very real couple you could find in daily life. I loved how Ms. Fox pictured their relationship. They both loved and need each other to stick together through thick and thin, but still independent to stand on their own. There’s no need for lovey-dovey scene to show the solidity of their relationship. I have to admit though, I felt a bit sorry for Beau. If you’ve read the book before this one, you’d know he still harboured feeling for Verity. And again it showed here. I just imagined how sorry he felt. But, well, it’s his own doing. All in all, I absolutely LOVED this book! I was provided a complementary copy by the author / publisher through NetGalley, but this in no way influenced my thoughts or opinions.

    I would like to thank Angie Fox for allowing me to be a member of her Review Crew and for sending me a free electronic ARC of this book, obligation free! ‘Pecan Pies and Dead Guys’ is the seventh book in Ms Fox’s ‘Southern Ghost Hunter Mysteries’ series and does not disappoint! Okay, so yes I didn’t rate it as high as I have rated some of the other books in this series, but I will explain that later. This is just meant to be the attention grabbing paragraph to truly sell you this book. ;-) In this I would like to thank Angie Fox for allowing me to be a member of her Review Crew and for sending me a free electronic ARC of this book, obligation free! ‘Pecan Pies and Dead Guys’ is the seventh book in Ms Fox’s ‘Southern Ghost Hunter Mysteries’ series and does not disappoint! Okay, so yes I didn’t rate it as high as I have rated some of the other books in this series, but I will explain that later. This is just meant to be the attention grabbing paragraph to truly sell you this book. ;-) In this tale our beloved heroine Verity is back on the case. This time she is trying to find a murderer at a three day party. The twist is that the party happened almost a century ago and the ghostly party goers have had to have the exact same party every year since… so are well rehearsed at it and know how to hide the truth. This part of the story I loved. It is what makes the ‘Southern Ghost Hunter Mysteries’ such a great series. These windows into the past that need help at being closed so the ghosts can move on and find their rest. Fantastic! It was the twin storyline in the living world that I wasn’t such a fan of. Every Verity tale has her investigating mysteries in both the land of the living and the dead… but I just found the living mystery in ‘Pecan Pies and Dead Guys’ wasn’t as seamlessly entwined into the tale as well as they have been in the past. In places it almost seemed stapled in to ensure there was that living mystery to solve at the same time as the ghost one. It was more a forced inclusion than a natural flow. But we all know I am a cynical cow and so what would I know, right? Remember that mantra for when you don’t agree: “Pffft, what would SHE know?” ;-) I can’t say this less than smooth weaving of living mystery and ghostly mystery was bad enough to put me off the story – far from it! I still absolutely enjoyed ‘Pecan Pies and Dead Guys’ and don’t feel let down or disappointed in it at all. I guess it was more of a mild jarring annoyance than an actual issue. But other than that everything was its usual top notch entertaining read. Verity, Frankie, Ellis and – the star of the books ;-) – Lucy were all there in fine form, along with all the other cast of regulars. The story fit well into the series and really does keep the love of Sugarland alive for the fans. I will say here that, being an ARC, the copy I read had some proofing issues and plot inconsistencies in it, but I have been assured by Ms Fox’s lovely assistant that these should all be sorted out now and those final, tiny little creases, smoothed out. Would I recommend this book to others? Yes I would. You know I am going to say it… As this is the seventh book in a series I would strongly recommend people read the whole series from book one. I mean, you COULD read this as a stand-alone novel, but you really would be missing out on other great stories that lead up to ‘Pecan Pies and Dead Guys’. So I guess I could say this book would encourage me to recommend the whole series so far. Would I buy this book for myself? Yes I would. Seriously, any issues I had with it were really minor. Yes it’s not my favourite book in the ‘Southern Ghost Hunter Mysteries’ series, but hey! These things happen in any series. You will always have that one book you prefer over the others, even if you love them all. In summary: Fans of the ‘Southern Ghost Hunter Mysteries’ series will not be disappointed by ‘Pecan Pies and Dead Guys’. If you’ve been hanging out for book 7, go get it today!

    Pecan Pies and Dead Guys by Angie Fox is the seventh book in The Southern Ghost Hunter Mysteries. Verity Long is surprised when she receives a call from her boyfriend and deputy, Ellis Wydell. He wants her to come to a crime scene at the quarry with Frankie to see if can provide some insights. Unfortunately, Verity is unable to provide any helpful intel.

Verity Long is surprised when she receives a call from her boyfriend and deputy, Ellis Wydell. He wants her to come to a crime scene at the quarry with Frankie to see if can provide some insights. Unfortunately, Verity is unable to provide any helpful intel. Later that evening, Verity and Ellis are attending a barbeque hosted by Virginia Wydell, Ellis’s mother when Inspector Julien De Clercq catches up with them. They have agreed to help Inspector De Clercq with a case that has stumped him for a century in exchange for the charges against Frankie being dropped. Verity has three days to solve the murder that occurred on the Adair estate in 1928 before the ghostly crime scene and the suspects disappear for another year. In the world of the living, Virginia is on a tear because Beau has decided to quit his law practice and to become an eclectic folk artist. He says it is all thanks to Verity (oh dear) and Virginia wants Verity to fix it. Virginia dangles a precious Long family heirloom as bait. After a night of questioning ghostly suspects, Verity finds a pecan pie on her kitchen counter. Lucy knocks it over before Verity can take a bite. When another pecan pie is left in the kitchen, Verity becomes suspicious. How did the person get into her home when all the doors were locked? Come along to charming Sugarland, Tennessee where ghosts and murder abound along with eccentric citizens, adorable skunk and a determined sleuth. Pecan Pies and Dead Guys is a part of The Southern Ghost Hunter Mysteries and I suggest reading the series in order. Each book builds upon the previous one in this charming Southern series. Verity has her work cut out for her in this time. There are two murders to solve along with the mysterious pecan pie problem and Beau’s desire to become an artist. Beau believes he is the next Andy Warhol and his new girlfriend, Zoey Lee is encouraging him (his artwork would work well in a haunted house). I like the variety of quirky characters with my favorite being Verity’s resident ghost, Frankie “the German” Winkelmann. Of course, let us not forget Verity’s pet skunk, Lucy (only in Sugarland). Pecan Pies and Dead Guys is nicely written with a fast pace. I quickly devoured this novel. I laughed frequently at the wacky antics in the story. Wait until you discover what Frankie has created in Ellis’ attic. The two mysteries were interesting with the ghostly one being more difficult to solve. The present day murder is a cinch to figure out. I wish the author had put a little more effort into it. The ending is sweet and heartwarming. We also get a clue as to what will occur in the next volume in this whimsical series. I am giving Pecan Pies and Dead Guys 4 out of 5 stars. I actually got my mother hooked on this series. When she heard I received Pecan Pies and Dead Guys, my kindle disappeared (I am thankful I have a spare one). I heard chuckles emanating from her room for the next several hours.

    Pecan Pies and Dead Guys is the seventh book in Angie Fox’ Southern Ghost Hunters series. The story begins with Verity being torn by the needs of her boyfriend, Deputy Ellis Wydell, and her ghost, Frankie the German. Ellis calls Verity to a crime scene that he feels is a murder but may be ruled a suicide. Frankie is doing his best to hide from fellow ghost Inspector de Clercq, who is calling upon Frankie to help solve a 90 year old case or be forever imprisoned on Verity’s land.

The assignment is to be present on the Adair Estate for the three nights of the Red Hot Ritz. When Verity arrives at the crime scene she can read nothing that will tell why the woman has died. The bigger surprise of the day is when Ellis’ mother, Virginia Wydell, invites them to a bar-b-que at the family home. Separated from Ellis soon after arrival, Verity makes the acquaintance of Zoey, former fiancée Beau Wydell’s latest squeeze. To her surprise, Verity finds zoey refreshing and really likes her. Verify leaves the party to head to the dilapidated Adair Estate to begin ghostly snooping to discover who murdered Greasy Larry Knowles, a crooked judge from the late 1920s. But Inspector de Clercq is not happy to see the “live” girl. After some sleuthing, they find it necessary to hightail it out of there, as they do the second night of the annual Red Hot Ritz. Meanwhile, mysterious pecan pies appear at Verity’s home. The second one spooks her to the point she takes it to the police station to have it tested and is taken aback when a police department employee dies as a result of a sneaked slice of pie. With three mysteries to solve, two in reality and one on the ghostly plain, Verity, Ellis, and Frankie have much to do and will take you on a wild ride towards the answers. Again, Ms. Fox has woven exciting and interesting tales. I did enjoy this book and do recommend it!

    Even though this book is number seven, the series still feels fresh. The plot was unique, and I just love how the past and the present seem so entwined in this book to make the book an interesting read. In addition, I also love the friendship between Verity and Frankie, and I do admit to wanting Verity and Ellis to move forward in their relationship; I think it’s time they go engaged. Maybe things will finally change between Verity and Virginia if that happens. Or, at least get better. It’s time Even though this book is number seven, the series still feels fresh.

Anyway, I also knew who one of the bad guys was very quickly. The other one wasn’t nearly as obvious. However, knowing who one of the culprits was didn’t detract from my enjoyment at all. This book was fun and entertaining from start to finish. If you love cozy paranormal mysteries, give this book and series a try! Highly recommend! I received a complimentary copy which I voluntarily reviewed.

    Started out in the middle of the series by accident, but it was surprisingly easy to get into and an absolute quirky delight! I loved all of the characters and the wide variety of personalities on display, and the dynamic between Veritty and all of her various cohorts.

The ghost mystery with its swinging 20s party going on every night was a delight, even if I did get duped by the red herrings (I am clearly bad at this!) but the living-person mystery was just...not even there, really. It was a dead girl at the start, and then "nope, working on the ghost mystery," and then a random killer popping up at the end to go "yeah, that was me. Surprise climax time, stabbity stabbity!" Honestly, I could have done with a little more integration or (even better) just leaving out that second one altogether.

    Angie Fox is brilliant once again! Verity Long is a wonderful heroine I always enjoy spending time with. Sadly, I haven't read all the books in this series, but I don't mind. Never one to have spoilers, Angie Fox's books can be read in any order. I did peg the baddie right away, which didn't distract from the story at all. There was a twist that I didn't see coming. Always a nice surprise. As always, the characters are real and easy to relate to. Their relationships are honest and entertaining. Angie Fox is brilliant once again!

    Another amazing, non-stop adventure from Angie Fox! This new installment of the Southern Ghost Hunter series is intriguing, fast paced, entertaining and full of rich new (or old, really) locations. A number of ghosts are helped by Verity and her gangster this time, and the ending is satisfying and heart warming. As always, the book is well written and sweeps you away right until the end. I am already looking forward to the next one!

    Another great one by Angie Fox! This series just keeps getting better and better. As usual very hard to put down! Ellis and Verity are even closer, Beau apparently has a screw loose since his Sugarland Express experience, and Virginia and Verity may have come to an understanding. Verity and Frankie make a great detective team, even if Inspector De Clercq doesn't agree with their methods. Fantastic series! Can't wait for the next one!
