Series: Southern Ghost Hunters Mysteries
Designation: Book 4.5 of Series, Standalone Novella(50 pages), NO Cliffhanger
Author: Angie Fox
Reading Platform: Kindle Edition
My Rating: FIVE DELICIOUSLY CUTE STARS*****
I adore cozy mysteries, love gripping suspense and totally addicted to anything supernatural but throw in a little sweet romance and I'm totally smitten! Unfortunately, it's often difficult to find all four elements in one book but fortunately, I've found an author that brilliantly combines them all into one exceptional story. Angie Fox has delighted her readers yet again with Dog Gone Ghost: Book 4.5, a standalone novella in the Southern Ghost Hunters Mysteries Series and I totally loved it! Although this is a standalone short story which can be enjoyed all on its own, I highly recommend at least reading the first book of the series, Southern Spirits which will give you the premise and backstory for all the releases in the collection. I became a diehard Angie Fox fan several years ago after reading The Accidental Demon Slayer, the outrageously funny first release in Fox's best-selling Biker Witches Mystery Series, another fabulous collection I highly recommend, especially if you love your mystery generously laced with side-splitting humor. But I digress, let's talk about Dog Gone Ghost. The book is imaginative, unique, exciting, cute, sweet, heartwarming, well crafted and well edited with a beautiful, eye-catching cover. The narrative is exceptionally well written in the first person from the perspective of the heroine, Verity Long. The dialogue is smart, well executed and flows effortlessly. I love all the components of this story but it's the characters that completely steal the show. They are fascinating, captivating, realistic, engaging, relatable and humorous. Fox skillfully combines these elements to craft a deliciously cute and delightfully entertaining whodunit filled to the brim with danger, drama, action, mystery, suspense, humor, ghosts and even a little heartbreaking angst and heartwarming romance. What did I love about this story? Everything!
The last several months have been busy for Verity Long, a beautiful former aspiring graphic designer from Sugarland, Tennessee. Despite successfully solving several murders, life continues to be difficult. Verity is still short on funds and desperately trying to hang on to the home she inherited from her grandmother. She lost absolutely everything after breaking off her engagement last year with her cheating, now ex-fiance Beau Wydell, youngest and favored son of wealthy, influential town aristocrat Virginia Wydell. Her graphic design services had been in demand until her almost mother-in-law used her influence to ruin her and her business. Now it seems no one in Sugarland, Tennessee needs her services so she's embarked on a new occupation and has a whole new business...as a ghost hunter. Yup, she's officially out of the closet and has been months, or rather since her interview with Ovis Dupree, guest investigative reporter from the local newspaper, The Sugarland Gazette. And that's not the only change in her life. Her kinda-sorta-maybe but very hush-hush and on-the-sly boyfriend, deputy sheriff Ellis Wydell is now her public main squeeze! And yes, Ellis and Beau are related - they're brothers! Huh? Oh yes, brothers! As you can imagine, the news was not well received by Virginia Wydell. And let's not forget her sweet little pet skunk Lucy and her very dead, black and white gangster ghost housemate, Frankie. Yup, I said ghost. Frankie became trapped on Verity's property when she unknowingly dumped the ashes from his urn onto the roots of her rose bush. Oh my! But in her defense, she had no idea what they were and what would happen. So until she can figure out a way to free Frankie, she's stuck with the not-so-nice criminal from the flapper era who has turned her backyard shed into a speakeasy and hideout for him and his ghost gang cronies. Verity is barely scraping by with very little food and even less money. But on the bright side, she does have her pet skunk, Lucy, a hot hunky boyfriend, and, on occasion, Frankie does actually lend her, albeit begrudgingly, some of his power so she can see all those otherworldly things that go bump in the night. But it seems her new ghost hunting business is really going to the dogs. No really....her newest case literally involves dogs, or more accurately the animals at the Sugarland Animal Shelter. It seems someone or 'something' is letting all the animals out of their cages in the middle of the night. The privately run no-kill facility is in desperate need of her services. Too bad they can't afford to pay her. But when did a little thing like money ever stand in the way of Verity doing a good deed? Never! But will this case find Verity chasing tails or will she be able to solve the mystery? We'll see!
Did I like this book? No, I LOVED it! I adore the Southern Ghost Hunters World and the town of Sugarland as well as the characters Fox has created for this series. Verity Long is an absolute delight and Ellis Wydell is one hunk of burning love! lol... And never fear, Verity's gangster ghost, Frankie, is around to cause all kinds of trouble and Lucy, the pet skunk, is ever present for a little comic relief. And the supporting characters in this little story just completely captured my heart! There is absolutely nothing sweeter than a young boy who loves his dog! I sniffed and snuffled through the last half of the story. Would I recommend it? You bet and I am for ages twelve to a hundred and twelve! Will I read this author again? Absolutely! Just as soon as she releases her next book! Was I entertained? Completely and totally entertained! Fabulous entertainment and an awesome read!
Bree, who works at the Sugarland Animal Sanctuary, stops by to enlist Verity’s help in discovering why ghosts have been setting the animals loose at night, endangering both the animals and possibly people. Frankie isn’t keen on the pro bono work, but suspiciously changes his tune when he discovers the animal shelter is near the river. What Verity discovers, while Frankie is using the situation for a little side job, makes for an excellent short story.
I’m reticent to give too many details, but this one is actually quite tender and moving for something in this genre. It’s funny, atmospheric, and will have anyone who loves dogs and children complaining they’ve got something in their eye before the final page is turned. You think this one is going to be a little sillier than the other two short stories supplementing the series when it begins, but it ends up being warm and tender, even memorable. I loved this one and highly recommend it.
