Reviews Pecan Pies and Dead Guys (Southern Ghost Hunter Mysteries, #7)

  • Beth
    Lots of kooky, crazy and chaos while mystery solving here and in the ghost realm. I appreciated the zany and fun-filled way Fox bring her characters to life. I was more enticed by the present mystery and less intrigued by the ghost realm antics but in the end Fox melds physic sleuthing with modern day mystery solving creating an enticing book-cation. I received this ARC copy of Pecan Pies and Dead Guys from Moose Island Books. This is my honest a...

    Advanced Reader Copy (ARC) provided by the Author and Publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an fair and honest review. 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 dif...

    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. So when Frankie actually need...

    Pecan Pies and Dead Guys by Ange Fox7th 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...

    Pecan Pies and Dead guys by Angie Fox was another fun filled adventure through Summerland with Verity and Frankie. This time Verity has two mysteries to solve, attempts to reunite a mother and daughter, save her home from a Federal ghost prison and save herself from a vengeful dominant ghost and a stalker. 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 extrava...

    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.

    This is the first book in the series I have read by Angie Fox. I love cozy mysteries and I love ghosts. But never bothered to read any books like this until now. I have to say I enjoyed it.Verity and Frankie were fun to read about. Frankie is gangster from the 1920's. He is dead and stuck on Verity's property as she put half in ashes in the soil of the rose bushes. With what is left in the Urn he can travel with Verity and she can see other ghost...

    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 defini...

Shortly afterwards a pecan pie, hot from the oven, shows up on Verity's doorstep. When another one shows up on her kitchen counter while she was not at home, she has to rely on her police chief boyfriend's help to find o...

    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...

    BOOK 7 in the Southern Ghost Hunter Series staring Verity, Frankie, and Lucy. This trio is living on the land that Verity's family has owned for many generations. She is single so who are the other residents? Well.... Frankie is a former gangster ghost with a visual bullet hole in his head. Lucy is an adorable pet skunk that Angie Fox shares as the cute and cuddly of this series. With Frankie lending Verity his power to see the spirit world they ...
  • Linda Quick
    Loved this book! This is another fun story that has Verity, along with ghost sidekick Frankie, investigating a ghostly murder from years ago. I love this series and enjoy seeing how the characters have grown and developed throughout it. Frankie is a ghostly mobster that "lends" Verity some of his power so she can see and talk with other ghosts. That "gift" puts her in the middle of a wild party that keeps repeating every year on the ghostly plain...
  • Amy
    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....

    Flappers and gangsters and food trucks, oh my!Sugarland Tennessee is supposed to be a sleepy Southern town, but it is really a home to all kinds of ghostly former residents. Verity has a connection with ghosts ever since she inadvertently messed up the remains of a local gangster who now reluctantly works with her on murder cases both new and historical. This installment has one of each, but we're not talking CSI here, more like Nick and Nora Cha...
  • Dolly
    A delightfully rowdy romp through haunted southern mansions and orchards with a dead detective who cannot find peace until he solves his last case, and a prohibition era gangster ghost on house arrest. With the help of the living Verity, Ellis and friends, crimes in the ghost world as well as new crimes among the living are investigated with twist after turn. It would be a HUGE mistake to pass this up. Ms Fox's immagination has no limits, of that...
  • Kelly Young
    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!
  • Peggy Mongrue
    I loved this book. I love all of the books in this series. Nice girl who can interact with ghosts, a handsome boyfriend, a wicked witch (future mother in law), fabulous gangster ghost, nostalgia, fun, romance and the cutest little skunk named Lucy. My favorite part was the haunted party. I do love reading about the parties from roaring twenties! A little bit of Gatsby meets Perot. I cannot wait for the next installment.
  • SarahSmith
    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!

  • Cheryl
    I have been wanting to check out this series. When I got the chance to pick up a copy of this book, I jumped at the chance. Although, this is the first book that I have read in this series; I felt like I had established an relationship already with Verity, Frankie, and Ellis. Ellis is the calm under pressure one out of the bunch. Verity and Frankie more jump before thinking and they are more reactive to situations as well. Thus, the reason why ma...
  • Donna Simonetta
    I love this series, and I really think this might be the best book in it so far!Two good mysteries, one ghostly and one human, and all the characters you've enjoyed in the previous books are all back. I enjoyed the ghostly mystery very much, with its 1920s flappers setting.A really fun read, I highly recommend!
