Philosophy is defined as a theory underlying or regarding a sphere of activity or thought. Well, my theory is if I can add at least 10 new books to my Wishlist and move at least 5 older Wishlist selections to my TBR list every month, then life is a ice cream sundae. And if I can find those 10 books from at least 5 new blogs each month then that's the cherry on top.


Well, I've made it almost 5 years now, so for better or worse, I continue on. I tend to blog in spurts as the urge to be creative erupts. As I don't have an artistic bone in my body, you will see very few changes in the layouts. Hey, I'm a reader not an artist like so many of the awesome bloggers I follow. I know you don't always have the time but if you stopped and looked, take a half a minute and say your piece. Recommend a book that you have enjoyed or hated for that matter. Thank you to all who visit.
Oh, and I moved my Google Friend Connect info and share this buttons to the top, as without our friends, who are we?

A haunted library is no place for a girl who can see ghosts, but when Verity Long stumbles on a dead body in the middle of the main reading room, she has to believe someone even a dead someone must have witnessed the crime. Her ghostly sidekick Frankie warns her to stay out of it. The very alive, very handsome deputy sheriff, Ellis Wydell, inadvertently places her directly in the middle of it. And her ex-fiancé, Ellis's brother, is back with an agenda of his own. Undaunted, Verity presses forward, uncovering scandalous secrets, long-forgotten ghosts, and a shocking trail of clues that places her directly in the path of a killer. 

I haven't read the first book in the series 
but having read Fox's Biker Witches Mystery 
series, I knew I'd enjoy this one too. As always 
her characters have you laughing out loud. Verity's 
pet skunk is adorable and side-kick ghost, Frankie is
 a force to be reckoned with. Having grown up with 
Nancy Drew/Hardy Boys mysteries, getting a chance 
to help Verity look for clues and find out why and who 
killed Darla Grace was pretty awesome. There's just 
enough romance to keep it interesting and  gotta love
 the ghosts at the library even though they seem 
destined to relive the last moments of their life. 
Though there is a previous book in the series, there
 is enough back story to still make reading 
this one an enjoyable and fun read. I will 
go back and read book one though just 
because it was so fun.
