A retelling from the Charles Dickens tale, this time with a crotchety Southern woman, a cute domesticated skunk and a sleeping momma bear with her three cubs. Ghosts included.
Sentimental and sappy and a message of being happy. Spread joy. It will make everyone respond.
Book 8.5 of the Southern Ghost Hunter Mysteries. Can be read as a standalone.
I questioned the “Book 8.5” notice on the cover and wondered what that meant. The author’s main character, Verity Long, has more of a personal mystery to solve as the ...more
The Ghost of Christmas Past is a novella and is #8.5 in the series. It is standalone, but has more meaning and makes more sense when gotten in order.

The Ghost of Christmas Past is the eighth and a half book in Angie Fox’s Southern Ghost Hunter Mysteries series. Always on the hunt for a Christmas read this time of year, I didn’t let the fact that this was part of a series I haven’t followed deter me. I didn’t feel lost reading this, so you can start here, but I think if I’d read more from this series and was more attached to Verity, my rating would have been higher.
It’s obvious from the title of the story that this ...more
I thought I was ready for a nice and sweet Christmas story - but clearly I wasn't. Or I just became more grumpy on my old age and aren't able anymore to appreciate sweetness anymore :P
I appreciate the characterisation of the unusual pet, an adorable skunk, and the way the author exposed how a wild animal shouldn't be kept as a pet in general. That was a good point. The rest of the characters and the ...more
Verity learns an important lesson this Christmas season. No ...more

I love this series filled with quirky characters including Frankie the Gangster Ghost. This Story evokes Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol and puts a Southern Ghost Hunter Mysteries spin on it.
It all starts with Verity finally standing up to Ellis' mother, Virginia, and telling her off. When that ends with Verity alone on Christmas Eve, she gets a surprise ghost visitor which ...more

My Rating: FIVE DELIGHTFULLY ENTERTAINING STARS*****
It's time to trim the tree, jingle a few bells, and deck Virginia Wydell...oops, I meant to say deck the halls in Sugarland! As much as Verity only wants to canoodle with her ...more
This novella (most of Fox’s books seem to be on the short side) was fun, cute as hell in parts, and followed the path of the first book giving me all the elements I’d enjoyed so darn much.
The story continues with Verity, a down-to-earth southern gal and her freaking adorable pet, a skunk, called Lucy. Lucy is a rescue animal and her stink gland has been removed (we don’t have skunks in ...more
Christmas Eve finds Verity ready to bury the proverbial hatchet and enjoy a fun night with her boyfriend Ellis and his family. Verity's history with the Wydells, mostly Ellis' mother Virginia, has ...more
I have to admit that I was very confused by Verity's behavior at the beginning of this story. I know that every one of us has a breaking point but I truly felt that she could have handled herself more respectfully. Especially on Christmas Eve! For starters, she could have grown a backbone and refused to pay for the surprise from Ellis' mother, Virginia. Secondly, after Ellis made his wishes ...more
A Christmas Carol goes ghost hunting with Verity Long and her eclectic cast of regulars, and its shorter length is just right for a rest from the hustling bustling season. The Ghost of Christmas Past, book 8.5 in the Southern Ghost Hunter series, opens with Verity preparing for holiday festivities with boyfriend Ellis’ family. The problem is, that includes his pretentious mother, Virginia, who never misses an opportunity to embarrass demean and cause ...more

We join Verity on Christmas Eve. She's still reeling from the wild and crazy ride her last ghost job took her on, some secret revelations, and, of course, some boyfriend mother drama. I'm not saying there shouldn't be drama, ...more
