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 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.

I cannot express how much I love this series! It's quirky, funny, romantic, and adventurous. And this book is no exception to the rule. Angie Fox has an amazing talent for character development and storytelling that makes this book a compelling, can't-put-it-down read that drives a need for more. Ellis is the perfect southern gentleman, Frankie is just the right amount of sass and spunk for a sidekick (even if he can be a jerk sometimes) Virginia is a love-to-hate "almost mother-in-law" who drives Verity crazy, Beau is the slightly creepy ex-boyfriend everyone has experience with. I highly recommend this series and this book to anyone willing to listen to me ramble about how amazing Angie Fox is!

This author never disappoints! Her books are fast paced, nail biting, and hilarious. Verity and Ellis are planning a peaceful get away but the ghosts have other ideas. Tragedy, comedy and ghostly hijinks ensue.

The storyline although admittedly reminiscent of Murder on the Orient Express was very entertaining, the character development made quantum leaps over previous books in the series Fun read

I have not read any books by this author and only bought this one due to the Agatha Christie reference. I enjoyed reading it but i doubt I’ll read any more in the series. It just not my cup of cozy.

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.

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 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.**
