Summary

Ghost hunter Verity Long is overdue for a little R&R (rest and romance) with her boyfriend, Ellis, and a vintage train trip through the Tennessee mountains seems like just the ticket. The Sugarland Express carries history and nostalgia in every compartment, and Verity is determined to enjoy it - without ghostly interference. But the ghosts have other plans… 

On a dark, desolate night nearly a century ago, the train was stranded in the mountains, and a young woman was found stabbed to death in her locked compartment. The murder was never solved, and a ghostly Belgian detective is still pursuing the case from the grave. To Verity’s dismay, all of the ghostly suspects are back. And when history repeats itself and a new murder mirrors the old, it’s up to Verity and her friends to discover which of the passengers - dead or alive - could be behind the murders before the killer strikes again.

A fun easy listen.

I don't write spoilers in my reviews so I'm just going to say this was up to the author's usual standard. It is a fun, light hearted read perfect for listening to whilst deep cleaning in preparation for guests.

Loved it

I really enjoy the Southern Ghost Hunter series. I loved the way the narrator brought the characters to life. It was easy to tell who was speaking. The story itself was interesting. There was a ghost mystery and a human one which kept you wondering until the end.

Entertaining

This is an entertaining and light cozy mystery. The plot is interesting and the characters engaging. I like Verity Long's character and how she is so optimistic. She and Ellis make a good couple and I enjoy the way they work together and the way he has excepted her peculiarities.

Excellent story that keep you on your toes!

This book was excellent! There were so many twists and turns in the plot that I couldn't stop listening! It is well narrated (as usual) and very exciting. Each book in the series is better than the previous book. Just when I thought that the series couldn't get any better because it's already great, I'm treated to an even better story! Angie Fox is a superior writer!

Thank you Angie Fox

Thank you Angie Fox for writing this series. I love paranormal and mystery but I also love southern and sweet with a little bit of a love story going on. This series is perfect it touches on all of those things. I'm from Texas so I connect with the southern characters. I drive an hour each way to work and I get tired of the radio so I listen to audio books. These stories are some of my favorites.

#GhostlyObsession

Yes, I am obsessed with this series. This was a super little book. I love Ellis A bit more than I love Verity. This book was great because Verity wasn’t as much of a martyr as she normally is. I’m waiting for the series to continue... hurry it up Angie! #Tagsgiving #Sweepstakes

A great tribute to Agatha Christie

Verity and Ellis on a romantic getaway – I was looking forward to this. I did love the tribute to Agatha Christie and Poirot. I loved the characters on the train. I didn’t love having both Virginia and Beau along for the ride as well. It seems the author enjoys putting Verity in way too many humiliating situations that just isn’t a need for.

The mystery was fabulous in this book and the historic mystery was okay but its link to the present was very well done and allowed for Verity to have some interactions with the ghost. I also appreciated the descriptions of the train because it gave a really good mental image of the Sugarland Express.

So for the past couple of books Frankie annoyed and in this book Verity started to annoy me. The girl needs to grow a backbone in certain situations and in others situations she needs to not be so judgmental – she doesn’t live the most standard life yet seems to sometimes judge folks on how they appear. Not sure how I feel about the attempt at redeeming Verity’s ex-fiancé Beau but the author gave me some hope at the end.

This is the first book in the series to end with setting up the next book and it will be interesting to see how this works. It wasn’t quite a cliffhanger and I hope the author doesn’t go down the cliffhanger route.

Tavia Gilberts continues to add the consistency and heart to the story as the narrator and even though the story may lack some strength it is Tavia’s interpretation of the characters that keeps me hooked and coming back for more.

Ms Christie Would Be Proud

Once again, Angie Fox delivers a powerhouse. She's taken a classic murder mystery trope and turned it on its head with a paranormal twist.

The poignant fate of the ghosts on the Sugarland Express, the growing connection between Ellis and Verity, the reluctant emotional maturity of Frankie all come together to make a very enjoyable story.

And as always Tavia Gilbert bring sass and vulnerability to Verity and somehow manages to bring life to a mischievous gangster.
