From NY Times Bestselling Author, Angie Fox, a hauntingly fun holiday addition to the USA TODAY bestselling Southern Ghost Hunter series
Southern girl Verity Long needs a Christmas miracle...
Verity 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" stand-alone holiday story you don't want to miss!

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.
Cute Heartfelt Christmas Short
Verity was looking forward to a great evening with Ellis at his Uncles estate for Christmas Eve that is if she can let her pride go, and just enjoy the night. Virginia is still up to her toxic tricks. She literally delivers the last straw that finally breaks Verity, and has her vowing not to darken the same Christmas Eve party as Elli's Mother Virginia..... Can the help from some ghosts including Franky, and some cute baby bear in need help Verity realize her mistakes. This was a cute quick reminder that Christmas is about more than just presents and soooo much better when celebrated with family. Even if that family includes people who don't always support us! Sometimes we may want to cut the difficult family out of our lives but those are the ones who need our love all the more! I really enjoyed this quick short Christmas story. It was nice to have Verity focusing on her relationships and the ghosts stories not taking the prominent focus. Here's to Verity drowning Virginia with the kindness she needs in future stories!
I received this book for review purposes but this in no way effects my review.
3 Ghosts at Christmas
A modernized portrayal of the Dickens’ classic gone sideways. This novella details the importance of Verity to the wellbeing of Ellis and his family through a series of ghostly visions. A fine balance exists between the happiness of individuals and the group. Verity gains knowledge thru her interactions with the ghosts. Frankie provides a much needed balance of character to the novella as the reader sees a more mature development with the addition of a steady girlfriend ghost. This Christmas novella depicts past, present, and future scenes linked to Verity and her character. The lightness of the writing style and vibrancy of the characters make the scenes jump off the page as the reader rushes to see how the plot twists resolve. This is definitely a novella to read while relaxing when wanting a break from the everyday. I received an ARC for review. I would highly recommend this novella.
