Murder on the Sugarland Express by Angie Fox

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.

I love this series. It keeps getting better & better. If you love paranormal mysteries you'll love it too. Going on a historical train trip seems so fun & romantic however you can't leave the ghosts home & here start the mysteries. There's a double murder, one in the past & one in the present & both must be solved before the present train meets the fate of the first train. It was nice to see the relationship with the ex's family improving with everyone working together to solve the mysteries. I can't wait to see Ellis & Verity's romance go to the next level. I was given the opportunity to review an ARC of this book for NetGalley and the publisher.

I think this book is the best so far in this series! Maybe it's that all of the characters have developed with each book. Verity and Ellis's romance continues to evolve. Ghost Molly is making a better "man" out of Frankie. Virginia and Beau continue as the antagonists yet even those relationships are changing. Add murders, both past and present, with passengers, both dead and alive, trapped incommunicdo on a train through the mountains, and you have a book you can't put down! Eagerly awaiting the next installment in this delightful series.

Verity Long is back, this time taking a well-deserved vacation with her boyfriend Ellis. They board the Sugarland Express, a vintage train trip through the Tennessee mountains. What they did not know before they boarded was that the original Sugarland Express was the scene of an unsolved murder almost a century ago. All of the ghosts from that fateful journey are back and the scene will be re-created if Verity can't find the killer in time. Full of laugh-out-loud moments, and nerve-wracking scenes, this book will keep you turning pages until all the answers are revealed.

Verity Long is overdue for a little R&R with her boyfriend, Ellis. For a Ghost Hunter, 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 like murder… On a dark, bleak night nearly a century ago, the Sugarland Express 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 dead Belgian detective is still trying to solve the case from the grave. Adding to Verity’s dismay, all the dead suspects are back as well. When history repeats itself, and a new murder mirrors the old, it’s up to Verity and her friends, living and dead, to discover which of the passengers are behind the murders. -- Series: Southern Ghost Hunter - Book 6 Author: Angie Fox http://angiefox.com Genre: Cozy Mystery/Paranormal Publisher: Moose Island Books Murder on the Sugarland Express is a fun adventure through time with multiple ghost and historical reference. The very “Agatha Christie” feel of this story will keep readers turning the page and entertain them throughout. Verity and Ellis are wonderful characters with everyday problems and a few that are extraordinary. Verity doesn’t just see ghosts, she lives with them, talks to them and tries to help them whenever she can. Ellis is a police officer, and even though most people wouldn’t believe that Verity talks to ghosts, he accepts it at face value without question. If Verity tells him a ghost told her something important, he jumps into action. Combined they make a fantastic duo of ghost hunter and crime fighter. Other characters are warm and compassionate as well as interesting and fun. The cast of suspects are likable, intriguing and well rounded. They have characteristics that readers find in everyday life with those they know and love. Add an adorable pet skunk, and you have the makings of a memorable book. The Sugarland Express is romantic as only old trains can be. The opulence of the cars brings to mind a time long ago when passenger travel was about the adventure and not the amount of time it takes to get from point A to point B. The setting is perfect for a mystery. Who can’t imagine a train filled with ghosts and the living intermingling on an adventure that ends in murder? The long-dead victim is tragic while the newest victim is far from it. The motive for the murder is not readily clear and at times can seem almost absent. Clues are there to be found if the reader takes the time to look for them. The unveiling of the killer is dramatic and filled with action, and of course, ghosts. Although Murder on the Sugarland Express is a fast-paced easy-to-read book, it is also an ode to the most famous mystery writer of all time, Dame Agatha Christie. In some ways, it is almost too close in comparison to “Murder on the Orient Express.” Take out the ghost, and the reader may well think they are reading an altered version of Ms. Christie’s book. And herein lies the problem. On its own, this book is worth reading, but the comparison to Agatha Christie’s work is inevitable and unfortunate in some ways. Ms. Fox is a talented writer, and her passion for her craft is evident. However, writing a book that so closely resembles a rather famous one, can be hard to achieve without coming off as a copycat. Although Ms. Fox

When things get crazier than normal. Verity and Ellis decide it is time for a little Rest and Romance. Ellis gets them tickets on a vintage train ride through the Tennessee mountains on The Sugarland Express. What could possibly go wrong. For starters, Frankie insist he and Molly should come along, ghost need Rest and Romance too! Then add Virginia and Beau to the mix and things start to happen quickly. Romance, suspense and mystery with a few twist and turns will keep you guessing. You will need all your detective skills to solve this mystery. I was given ad Advanced Readers Copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

I love this series and I was so lucky that I got a copy through NetGalley in exchange for a review, which I am happy to provide. Since this is the 6th book I would recommend you read them in order, just so you can get a feel for all Verity and Ellis have been through. The Author does do a good job of giving you some backstory so you could definitely enjoy the story without getting too lost. There was plenty of action in the real and ghost world, romance, mystery and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Lets just say I might have neglected some of my work just in order to devoured this book since it was really hard to put down. I can't wait to see what will happen next.

Trouble is brewing in Sugarland so Ellis decides a nice quiet journey on the newly reopened Sugarland express is just the ticket to Peace... it tours the historic south, it should have been a nice quiet vacation. Only Frankie decides to invite himself, he's a little broody because he's having lady problems, or so he thinks. Verity being unable to say no to Frankie opens the trip up to ghostly interference... There's a decades old ghostly murder mystery and a new murder that mirrors, meaning they are now stuck on a train with a murder! *Gasp* This leaves Verity and Ellis with nothing to do but solve the murder before anymore of the passengers are harmed. They also have other problems as some of the trouble that was brewing in Sugarland follows. Ellis really should have learned by now that where ever Verity goes drama and mayhem will follow.... I really like these mysteries they are fairly quick easy fun reads. Frankie is the cutest ghost I've encountered, his drama cracks me up. I enjoy Ellis and Verity's relationship they are super cute together. What I don't care for is the on going drama between Virginia and Verity; there will always be a little drama between Beau and Verity, however I expected after 6 books to have Virginia a little more accepting of Verity.

Angie Fox has given us a delightful addition to the Southern Ghost Hunters Series in this sixth installment, Murder on the Sugarland Express! Filled with action, romance, and murders (in the ghostly realm and in “real life”); this book grabs your interest in the first chapter, and keeps you under its spell until the last page. Join Verity and her gangster ghost, Frankie as they each try to have a romantic getaway with their sweethearts through the Tennessee Mountains - but are pulled into intrigue and danger. Enjoy the mystery, family drama, and heart-pounding action in Murder on the Sugarland Express. I loved it!

The Southern Spirits Ghost Hunter Series is one of my favorite series of all time and Murder of the Sugarland Express was another hit. Verity, Ellis, Lucy (the skunk), Frankie & many other favorite characters are back for another great story. And we get to know Verity's almost (maybe soon to be again) mother-in-law & her ex better This book takes Verity & Ellis on a weekend getaway & the fun starts before they even leave Sugarland! I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

Loved! This is another winner in the Southern Spirits Ghost Hunter Series. In this novel, Ellis whisks Verity away for a quiet and historical trip on the Sugerland Express's maiden voyage after being rebuilt. The original Sugerland Express was destroyed many years ago on it's maiden voyage. However, Frankie, Verity's resident ghost won't allow her to leave him behind, so before even boarding the train, Verity is being warned of disaster by the ghost conductor. What follows is a fun murder mystery/who done it that fans of the genre will love. I love Verity and her story....despite how offbeat it is the author made me feel connected to her character and rooting for her. She has had many setbacks in her life - most revolving around the Wydell family - and I enjoyed reading about how those relationships have progressed. While this is a stand alone novel, you really owe it to yourself to read them all.

Verity & Frankie are at it again. Ellis attempts to take Verity on a vacation to get away from her ghostly visitors... only to have a decades-old murder overlap with a current-day murder while they are shut into a train with no where to go. I love that the Sugarland stories are all quick reads. They are full of detail and imagination without being overbearing which allows you to devour the story even when reading time is limited. I would recommend this book (and the series) to anyone who loves a little bit of mystery with lots of sarcasm, and mishaps. **I received a complimentary copy of this e-book from the author for review purposes.**

Another fun ghost hunter mystery! I love a murder on a train and we get lots -- both in the ghost world and the present. Sugarland Express is delighftful, and I love seeing what Verity and the gang are up to.

Murder on the Sugarland Express (Southern Ghost Hunter Mysteries, #6) is now my favorite story in the series. It was nice to see Verity finally receive the apology she deserved from Book 1. Too bad it was in private and not in public as the humiliation was. Ellis and Verity make such a great team, I hope that they have many more adventures in the future. Once again, Lucy made me smile. We need more scenes with this lovable character. Maybe she'll find love in the next book, especially since a new skunk may be moving to Sugarland in the future. I received a free, advance copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for my unbiased review.

I loved this book! This is the 6th in the Southern Spirits series and it does not fail to disappoint. Verity, Frankie and Ellis are at it again on another murder mystery on the Sugarland Express. I liked the plot twist and the parallel story lines between the real world and the paranormal world. The character development and plot plays homage to Murder on the Orient Express. There were a couple of intense moments in this book that kept me glued to the edge of my seat. A very well written book in the series. All your favorite characters are there Verity, Frankie, Ellis, Molly, Beau, Virginia Wydell and Lucy too! Murder takes place on the Sugarland Express just as Verity and Ellis take a relaxing vacation. The more they get close to solving the mystery, the more dangerous the train ride becomes. With a little help from Frankie, Molly and the ghosts on the Sugarland Express, will Verity be able to solve the mystery and save her own life in the process? The ending had a nice lead in for the next book with the spirit of a Belgian detective letting Frankie and Verity know the next mystery happens right in Sugarland! If you're looking to read a fun mystery with a cast of characters and a couple of plot twists between our world and the next, this is the book for you! You can read it as a stand alone, as the author gives past history in every book, or read the series.

Ghost whisperer Verity Long desperately needs alone time with her hunky boyfriend, far away from over-dramatic ghosts and meddlesome family members. She jumps at the chance to accompany Ellis on a replica historical train’s maiden voyage. History, especially on the Sugarland Express, intends on repeating itself. When a ghost’s dire warning comes true, Verity must not only solve the current murder mystery but also an unresolved case. Can Verity solve the years old case on the first Sugarland Express? Or will she share the ghosts’ same demise? Sheriff Ellis Wydell wants to have a normal outing with his girlfriend. He invites her on a trip to escape his mother and younger brother’s insufferable interfering. Ellis understands that ghosts are drawn to Verity. When a sequence of events follows the same pattern as the one on the original Sugarland Express, he wastes no time in helping Verity. Ellis investigates the current murder while leaving the unresolved case to Verity to solve with her ghostly contacts. Can Ellis protect Verity from the real-life threat haunting Sugarland Express? I have always liked Ellis since SOUTHERN SPIRITS, book one in the series. I love how he plays a more active role in this story. Ellis is such an altruistic sweetheart, one who is unfortunately related to a conniving socialite mother and a shallow baby brother. Despite their many personality flaws, he still cares for them and wants to be a part of their lives. I adore how completely Ellis trusts Verity. But what I love the most about Ellis is his acceptance of Verity’s supernatural ability. From their past experiences together, he has learned Verity’s behavior whenever a spirit communicates with her and acts accordingly. Verity has really come a long way, growth wise, since the start of the series. She handles her dual life, the living and the ghostly realm, with such upbeat aplomb and pluck. I like how Verity is no longer afraid to mention if an instance or circumstance is ghost related. I especially adore how coordinated she and Ellis work together on whatever mysteries fall into their laps. I am glad Verity finds a measure of mutual ground with not only her ex-fiancé Beau but also with his and Ellis’s mother Virginia. MURDER ON THE SUGARLAND EXPRESS is book six in Angie Fox’s paranormal series, SOUTHERN GHOST HUNTER MYSTERIES. I love how Verity, Ellis, and Frankie have not just one mystery to solve but two, one in the living realm and the other on the ghostly plane. I also like Molly’s positive influence on our troublemaking gangster ghost Frankie. MURDER ON THE SUGARLAND EXPRESS is a fun new twist on murder mysteries with ghostly hijinks and interferences. I cannot wait to see what further mysteries are in store for our trio in the next installment. Review courtesy of Romance Junkies

This series just keeps getting better and better! Murder on the Sugarland Express was a quick read because I couldn’t put it down! It has everything you need in a great story- a romantic getaway for our beloved couple, murders to solve, a tag-a-long mother-in-law and ex-fiancé, and ghosts! This is a very enjoyable read. I highly recommend this book and the entire series for anyone from your daughter to your grandmother. It is appropriate for all! Although this book is part of a series, you could try this series out and read as a stand-alone book. You won’t be disappointed!

Verity has got to be one of my favorite heroines. In this next edition of The Southern Ghost Hunter series she is once again utilizing her power to communicate with ghosts to solve a murder, this time on a train. Verity and her boyfriend Ellis are going on a much needed getaway vacation but things don’t go as planned. Boarding the Sugarland Express train for their vacation, they encounter ghosts, family and murder, all that they were hoping to escape from. Can Verity solve two murders using her ghostly abilities? I read this story in a day, couldn’t put it down. Love this series!

#6 in the Southern Ghost Hunter series, Verity Long is in for the ride of her life. Verity and her boyfriend Ellis are just trying for a nice vacation without distractions. Without Frankie, her gangster ghost, and his squeeze Mollie . Without murder and mayhem. Without the drama of family! Welcome to the Sugarland Express! Where not only is there Frankie and Mollie, but murder and mayhem and of course the family drama! I LOVED this story! It is so full of heart and I find Verity such a great character! Her intentions are always to help. I found that the parallel story of present Sugarland Express and past Sugarland Express was such an interesting twist. That the pulling in of related characters was such a great premise. Also the relationship between Verity and her ex, Beau,seems to be evolving. I loved that! Frankie is still the ghost with his many flaws, but Mollie seems to be bringing out the best in him. This has got to be one of my all time favorite mystery series! I can't wait until the next "Chapter".
