What follows is a delightful cozy mystery that I thoroughly enjoyed full of ghosts, Verity’s pet skunk, mayhem, and a side of romance. I loved Verity’s spunk, her supernatural sidekick a 1920’s gangster, Frankie, and of course Lucy the pet skunk.
I definitely want to continue reading this series.This cozy mystery had me hooked from the beginning and the narrator did a fantastic job. With its paranormal elements, ghosts, and a murder mystery, I was thoroughly entertained. Click To Tweet
