CHARACTERS, PLOTTING, AND DEVELOPMENT:
Author Angie Fox kept the suspense level high in this book as she did not reveal the identity of the culprit until the end of the book. Ms. Fox had several suspects incorporated into the story, including the resident ghosts, and I did not guess the identity correctly. What a surprise when I learned who was the villain. Author Angie Fox always adds humor and this story is very funny at times; it is full of southern wit and charm.
The action in this book was fast and furious with: a shoot out between Verity, Ellis and the long dead gangsters at a speakeasy and ——–well you will have to read the book. There is a surprise at the ending of the book. Ms. Foxe was in top form; it was all so exciting; the descriptions were so vivid, I could see the it all in my minds eye.
Ms. Fox’s plot was skillfully developed and the pacing was at the standard we have come to know and expect from her; this book is crafted in her usual skillful style of story-telling.
Ms. Fox had many threads in this story and she skillfully wove all those threads together to create a relaxing fun read. I loved her look into southern small town USA as she depicts it so realistically.
This book was crafted at Ms. Fox usual high standards of skill in story-telling; filled with laughter, mystery and murder. I enjoyed another visit with Verity, the resident ghosts, and the gang very much. I look forward to the next installment in small town Sugarland. Anyone that likes a solid well-written book will enjoy this story from the talented pen of Angie Fox. This is a standalone book.
