    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 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.

    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.

    Synopsis:

    Sometimes Verity Long would like to forget that she lives with the ghost of a 1920s gangster. But the reluctant housemates must once again work together when a dead detective blackmails Frankie into helping him solve a Great Gatsby-era cold case. Before she can say “bathtub gin,” Verity is dragged straight into a raging, otherworldly house party. Worse, every guest is hiding something.

    Meanwhile, Ellis Wydell, Verity’s living, breathing boyfriend needs Verity’s help with a police case of his own. After a dead body is discovered near the pecan orchard, Verity gives her insights, thinking her job is done. But when mysterious pecan pies start arriving at her house, she wonders who might be thanking her… or stalking her.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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 needs her help to escape a spiritual prison Verity is read

    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 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

    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.

    PECAN PIES AND DEAD GUYS is the seventh book in the delightful cozy mystery series, Southern Ghost Hunter Mysteries. 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.
