The Skeleton in the Closet (Southern Ghost Hunter Mysteries #2) by Angie Fox

From New York Times bestseller Angie Fox, the second book in the new Southern Ghost Hunter mysteries 

A haunted library is no place for a girl who can see ghosts, but when Verity Long stumbles on a dead body in the middle of the main reading room, she has to believe someone…even a dead someone…must have witnessed the crime. 

Her ghostly sidekick Frankie warns her to stay out of it. The very alive, very handsome deputy sheriff, Ellis Wydell, inadvertently places her directly in the middle of it. And her ex-fianc√©, Ellis’s brother, is back with an agenda of his own. 

Undaunted, Verity presses forward, uncovering scandalous secrets, long-forgotten ghosts, and a shocking trail of clues that places her directly in the path of a killer.

My review:
The Skeleton in the Closet is a tale filled with history, murder, politics, romance and plain goofiness. Verity Long can see ghosts especially with the help of ghostly mobster sidekick Frankie. When Darla is killed in the library late at night and Verity’s sister is arrested. Verity will brave every ghost in town to find out the truth. With the help of sexy deputy sheriff, Ellis Wydell Verity will find out secrets that shake the very foundation of her little town. Long held beliefs will be shaken and enemies will be made. In other words another day in the life for Verity. I love the possibilities of this series and Angie Fox has a gift of humor and snark and a tender respect for southern living. I will say that I love Lucy Verity’s de-scented skunk. I look forward to watching Verity and Ellis work out their relationship and see what Beau & his mother have to say. Although this is book 2 in the series it can be read stand alone.
