    I have never gone wrong with an Angie Fox book.

    I have never gone wrong with an Angie Fox book. This is a short Christmas story and is essentially a modern retelling of Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol as only Angie Fox can do with her ghost hunting heroine Verity. Virginia and Verity are still at it, and Ellis and the rest of the Wydells are all caught in the middle. Verity finally stands up to Virginia, after an extremely outrageous encounter, and refuses to go to the Wydell family Christmas Eve party. She essentially wants Ellis to choose her over his family. After Ellis leaves Verity learns the hard way what hatred in your heart can do to your soul. This is was a great quick read. I love Christmas stories, especially when there is a happy or at least an acceptable ending.

    Perfect Little Break during the Busy Holidays

    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 trouble for her son’s girlfriend. When a perceived thoughtful gesture turns out to be an expensive jab, Verity has finally had enough and tells Virginia off in no uncertain terms, prompting a series of events straight out of a beloved Dickens’ novel. With Frankie, Ellis, and Verity’s pet skunk, Lucy, on hand, this is a poignant tale about how life and choices affect everyone around you in ways you never even consider, reflecting the lessons of the original seasonal staple. Fox’s writing is on point, as usual, and if you love stories with descriptive details as I do, this will not disappoint. Lucy features prominently in this installment, and we get a softer side of the usually grumpy gangster, Frankie, both of which make it particularly enjoyable. This is a quick read, just right for relaxing, recouping, and clearing your head during this time of year. I love holiday themed entertainment, music, movies, television shows, and books. They help me to get in the spirit of the season and provide a way to enjoy a little ‘me’ time. If that sounds like you, grab a copy of this latest work in the series, a hot beverage, a warm, cozy throw, curl up for a couple of hours and escape with Verity and company in a lovely Christmas novelette that will put you in just the right frame of mind to tackle the busy holidays.

    A lovely feel good Christmas Story

    I really enjoyed this story. It was a lovely holiday story with a Christmas Carol Vibe to it. Showing that peace & goodwill to all - even the horrible people who may not deserve it, can reap the best results.

    A quick nice read

    I'm not gonna lie. I read this book solely because of the pet skunk! :) This was my first read as part of Angie Fox's Southern Ghost Hunter Series. It was pretty much as I expected. This book is a fun, fast-paced book that provides a delightful escape from reality. It's wholesome, no cursing or violence or blood or gore. Just a woman on a mission to save Christmas thanks to the help of three ghosts. It hits all the plot points you'd expect in this particular trope, moving quickly from one adventure to the next. This is a great read on a snowy night when you're looking for something a little silly with a touch of holiday joy. I found the events leading up the mystery to be a tad unrealistic, but that's just my personal preference. But never having read a book from the series, I was able to jump right into the story world. There was enough background given to catch me up without becoming burdensome. Overall, it's a nice book, falling right in the middle of the scale. I wouldn't say it stood out in any particular way, other than the pet skunk, but that doesn't mean it wasn't enjoyable.

    Fun quick read

    Verity Long sees ghosts. She even has a resident ghost....a gangster named Frankie. She is often called upon to use her ghostly skills to help her boyfriend Ellis solve mysteries or other problems. Things are great with Ellis, but his mother is a piece of work. She does everything she can to undermine their relationship and put Verity down. So when Ellis's mother insults her right before his family's Christmas party, Verity throws a fit and refuses to go. After Ellis & Virginia leave, one of Verity's closest ghost friends shows up needing her help. What she thought would just be a quick animal rescue mission, turns out to be a visit with the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present & Future. Verity needs to decide if she is willing to do everything in her power to change things with Virginia before the future becomes a reality. This was a fun take on "A Christmas Carol". Verity has a lot of spunk and tells it like it is. Frankie is a hoot. These books are a fun quick read, and I think you will enjoy them as much as I did.
