Verity Long, reluctant ghost hunter, is back in the fourth book of the series! She's finally trying to embrace the powers to see spirits that an old mobster ghost, Frankie, shares with her, and make a living as a ghost hunter rather than a graphic designer. Unfortunately, her declaration of seeing spirits has done nothing for her reputation in her small southern town, and she has yet to be hired. When a neighbor afraid to live in his own family home calls her desperate, Verity feels she has no choice but to accept the job, needing whatever he can pay her. Frankie is more cautious, remembering seeing ghosts there during his living years, and Verity must strike a bargain to be able to finish the job.
Deader Homes and Gardens is the fourth book in the Southern Ghost Hunter Mystery series. The first book in the series is called Southern Spirits. Their author, Angie Fox, lives in St. Louis! The series is fun and light-hearted, making them easy reads but still highly entertaining.
