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-fiancé, Ellis' 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.

Enjoyed this light-hearted tale.
This type of story is right up my street when I want to listen to something relaxing. It's an easy story to follow, with just enough going on with the mystery angle to keep you engaged.
It's also nice to have a story that doesn't degenerate into the sex scenes that so many tales seem to rely on these days. They're not needed, and it's annoying when they're not hinted at in a book summary so at least you have an idea of what to expect. With that lacking, it allows the budding romance between the two main characters to develop more naturally. That in turn has you rooting for them more.
I loved Frankie in that he was so different to the lead character. It allowed for some natural humour to seep through the story.
The only downside I had was the narrator. Compared to some she did a very good job. However there is a tendency for her to have the main character slways speaking in a tone of fear. This might be okay, expect it detracts from the moments when you want that tension. It could be that is how she was directed to talk, but whatever the reason it doesn't really work. Again in her defence, it's something that I have noticed in other audio books, which is why I wonder if that is what she was asked to do. That is the only reason why I marked this down a star.
Overall I enjoyed this enough to buy the others in the series. I'm looking forward to seeing if they can get Frankie free from his grounding, and also to see if the Mother-in-Law that wasn't gets shown up for the nasty person she actually is.

I'm really surprised at how much I enjoy this series. The characters and plot are well-developed and realistic. The small town atmosphere and attitudes ring true and add to the humor of the story. I also enjoy the paranormal aspect of the book. Frankie provides lots of comic relief. He's one of my favorite characters in the book. I look forward to the next book.

Great to keep your mind off exercising
I like all of Angie Fox's books they're fun and I like the way the Tavia performs it. It becomes quite imaginable. Love to get lost in the story while I'm exercising.
