Hey Book Nerds!
So today I am going to review a mystery that kind of reminded me of Murder on the Orient Express, but different. Murder on the Sugarland Express by Angie Fox, takes the reader on a ghostly ride where the main character has to solve two mysteries. One in the spiritual world and one in the living world.
The book description was taken from the Goodreads website:
“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.”
Verity is at it again, and this time she has to solve two murders that are eerily connected to each other. All Verity wants to do is spend some quality alone time with her boyfriend, but when her ghost friend tags along and she learns that history has a habit of repeating itself. Will Verity be able to solve the mystery of what happened on the old train before the current train follows the same fate or will she fail and lose everything in the process?
This book had me laughing, and on the edge of my seat to see how it all ended. Angie drags the reader into the story and takes you on a ghostly adventure. I have been reading the entire series and I absolutely love this book. The entire series will have you laughing and wanting to help Verity solve the murders. If you haven’t jumped on this train yet you need to.
Go on a mystery solving adventure with ghosts my friends!
