Southern girl Verity Long is about as high society as her pet skunk. Which is why she’s surprised as anyone when the new head of the Sugarland social set invites her to join the "it" girls. But this is no social call. Verity’s new client needs her to go in undercover and investigate strange happenings at the group’s historic headquarters.

But while spirits are whispering hints of murder, the socialites are more focused on Verity’s 1978, avocado-green Cadillac. And when Verity stumbles upon a fresh body, she's going to need the long-dead citizens of Sugarland to help her solve the crime. Good thing she has the handsome deputy sheriff Ellis Wydell on hand, as well as her ghostly sidekick Frankie. The bad thing is, the ghosts are now whispering about the end of a certain ghost hunter.

Why did I add Sweet Tea and Spirits to my bookshelf?

This is a book that I do want to get to soon! I have almost all of the books in this series in my Audible account. I was working my way through the series pretty steadily last year but never got through this book. I do remember starting this book at one point and after listening for a bit, I realized that I was in the mood for something else and I just never got back to it. This is a short audiobook so I should be able to work it in very soon.

What are your thoughts? Have you read this book?  Would you recommend it?

  1. I finally ran out of bizarre things to talk about so I decided to join this meme! It sounded like fun and oh the guilt I’m already feeling! Lol! I actually have the first book of this series of Angie’s on my TBR pile too. Not sure when it will pop up in my posts though! Lol.
