Review: The Ghost of Christmas Past

The Ghost of Christmas Past (Southern Ghost Hunter Mysteries, #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

Rating: 5-stars


Angie Fox’s latest paranormal romance dashed with humor is here! The Ghost of Christmas Past is just as crazy good as the previous novels before it. This book is to die for! I love the rush of humor, action, and mystery that is packed into this fabulous read. Angie Fox has a way of capturing my attention from page one and keeping it. I also enjoyed the mixture of paranormal activity with the cozy romance mystery genre. It works well.

In this read, I followed Verity (the sleuthing detective) as she prepares to dine with a family that dislikes her. She is not just a typical sleuth but a ghost hunter. She is one unusual sleuth due to having a pet skunk. I like Verity’s southern ways and mannerisms. They go perfectly hand-in-hand with her side kick, the gangster ghost.

Frankie is the gangster ghost that ended up stuck wherever Verity goes. She has to carry his ashes with her when they leave the house. He adds humor and character to the story. He’s a bad guy. A notorious robber and gangster, but he does have a soft side. Frankie also has a ghost girlfriend, Molly. Between her and Verity, Frankie stays out of trouble or as much of it as possible.

Then, there’s the deputy, Ellis. He’s part of the rich family that doesn’t take well with Verity. Ellis and Verity are dating. Verity used to date his brother who did wrong by Verity. Ellis’s mother dislikes Verity dating Ellis. But there’s room for his mom and Verity to get along.

As usual they were plenty of things that could go wrong, some did, and another mystery to solve. Th whole cast makes this story rich. I enjoy these characters and their journeys. Suspense, intrigue, romance, and ghosts are found in this enchanting book.
