Less than a year ago, my life had been so simple. I had a nice little freelance design business going. I was marrying a man I thought I loved. And then –poof. Ghosts in my kitchen and ramen for breakfast.”
Verity was a pure southern Belle and I absolutely adored her. Even though she was scorned by the ex, she didn’t have a bad word to say in public about him.
She was funny and super likeable, and smart. Everything I was happy reading. When she was in danger/pain she had real reactions. I loved her inner monologue.
The next morning I was up bright and early. Mostly because I’d sold the curtains.”
She also had a pet skunk!!
Ellis..well I hated his name. For some reason in my head I kept scoffing ‘ stupid name’
That’s the ONLY fault I had.
The storyline with hidden jewels, cash and murders did not get dull once, and it was an even pace the whole book.
“chill swept the room. I retreated until my back hit solid wood. I’d never seen a ghost or heard a ghost although I watched Ghost Adventures on television and I certainly believed in them and sweet Jesus I was trapped.”
This book isn’t very romance orientated, but I liked that all the focus was on a clever plot full of humor, action, ghosts and small town politics.
