The Ghost Of Christmas Past
Southern Ghost Hunter Mysteries, Book #8.5
From NY Times Bestselling Author, Angie Fox, a hauntingly fun holiday addition to the USA TODAY bestselling Southern Ghost Hunter series
She needs a Christmas miracle…
Verity Long is ready to deck the halls, jingle some bells, and maybe, just maybe have a merry Christmas with her boyfriend’s stuffy family. Truly, if she doesn’t extend the proverbial olive branch to the overbearing Wydells, she’s afraid she’ll hit them over the head with it.
But when her boyfriend’s mother pulls a shocking stunt, Verity finds herself with a big decision to make. And if that’s not enough, there’s an unexpected guest at her door. It’s the ghost of the woman who helped rescue Verity’s pet skunk three years ago that very night. And now she’s there to change Verity’s life as well.
*A “between the books” holiday story you don’t want to miss!

Paranormal Cozy Mystery Romance
The author is very talented in her descriptive writing and these descriptions pulled me into the story from the very beginning. There was a lot of action contained within the pages and that was great.
The characters are well rounded and well developed. I like getting to spend time with Verity and Ellis, they make a great couple. Ellis’s mom, Virginia, is a real pain and will always be a real pain. But maybe Verity will be able to live with that after learning a magical lesson. Frankie is as tough as ever, but we see he has a soft spot in his heart. Lucy, Verity’s pet skunk, is one of my favorite pets in the cozy world.
I really like the premise of this book and how it paralleled A Christmas Carol, I thought that was so clever. There were lessons to be learned, but in a fun way.
I would highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a well crafted cozy mystery. If you are looking for a book to get you in the Christmas spirit (pun intended), check this book out.
I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book and provided my honest review.
