The Restless Spirits books by Angela Pepper are complete stand-alone mysteries set in the regular world, with a ghost or two in each book. These tales range from humorous to suspenseful, with thrilling twists and danger at every turn!

The stories were okay. They didn't really seem like supernatural stories. They seemed like regular stories and ghosts were thrown in to put these in the fantasy or supernatural genre. The ghosts interactions were minimal. They were alright. The 3rd one was kinda slow.

Zoe Lake is heading off to college - and she's excited. It's not a regular college, though. It's a magical college full of vampires, werewolves, ghosts, witches, sphinxes - and pretty much everything else you can imagine. Despite the monsters, it's often human nature that threatens her life most.

No real distinctions between character traits. No real use of magic, it's sporadic and no understanding of it. The main character is horrible, tries to force her way of thinking onto everyone. Too much trashing of other novels and uses pop culture references too much (easy way out of describing things). Sexual conversations between parents and children are inappropriate and uncomfortable. Her other series are better.

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.

The book was okay. Kind of bored by the fact that every time she describes what a man is wearing it's a chambray shirt. Verity's rationalizing for many of her actions are very circumspect. I'm also a little tired of her being afraid of every sound she hears when she's taken on the occupation of ghost hunter. The good things about the book are that it doesn't drag. It's easy to listen to while I'm working.

When out-of-work graphic designer Verity Long accidentally traps a ghost on her property, she's saddled with more than a supernatural sidekick - she gains the ability to see spirits. It leads to an offer she can't refuse from the town's bad boy, the brother of her ex and the last man she should ever partner with. Ellis Wyatt is in possession of a stunning historic property haunted by some of Sugarland, Tennessee's finest former citizens.
