Publisher's Summary

Sometimes, Verity Long would like to forget she lives with the ghost of a 1920s gangster. But the reluctant housemates must once again work together when a dead detective blackmails Frankie into helping him solve a Great Gatsby-era cold case. Before she can say “bathtub gin”, Verity is dragged straight into a raging, otherworldly house party. Worse, every guest is hiding something.  

Meanwhile, Ellis Wydell, Verity’s living, breathing boyfriend needs Verity’s help with a police case of his own. After a dead body is discovered near the pecan orchard, Verity gives her insights, thinking her job is done. But when mysterious pecan pies start arriving at her house, she wonders who might be thanking her...or stalking her.  

Between hard-living ghosts and sugar-laden desserts, Verity has her work cut out for her. But will she uncover the secrets behind the pecan pies and dead guys? Or has she stumbled upon a recipe for disaster?  

A warm and witty paranormal cozy mystery!

Just couldn’t get into it. A lot of talking but no story.

I kept waiting for s story to be revealed but it seemed like a bunch of conversations going nowhere and the protagonist hollering trying to find her skunk.

It was barely okay..

Reviewer NutriRep was right "a bunch of conversations going nowhere." The story about the ghosts trying to kill Verity was ridiculous since she just kept spending her time around them, and Ellis kept letting her. Not very loving, if you ask me. The only good things about this book was Frankie, the mobster, and her pet skunk. Beau was just cray-cray!
I had to quit at 52%.

As to the narration: As much as I love Tavia Gilbert she was a little too dramatic for me in this book.
