Verity is making sugar cookies with deceased gangster Frankie hanging around when Union soldier — deceased, of course — Matthew shows up on her doorstep in need of help. He wants to marry but needs a necklace to present to his bride-to-be that only Verity can get for him, because he was forbidden to enter his old home when he joined the Union Army. Since she’ll need to use Frankie’s power to go there and see the dead, which saps Frankie, she has to use Southern Belles as an enticement. As good fortune would have it, Verity’s friend Lauralee is catering so there is some fun stuff going on as she mingles with the corporeal and the non-corporeal.
It doesn’t take long for Verity to realize mending a family relationship is just as important as obtaining that necklace for Matthew. Ghost of a Chance has just the right dash of fun — Frankie’s urn gets used as a serving tray ornament — and enough warmth and holiday spirit — no pun intended — to make this a short and enjoyable read. It’s fluff, but fluff with enough warmth and whimsy that you don’t feel too ridiculous for having read and enjoyed it. A nice treat.
He wants to propose to his ghostly sweetheart and wishes to give her the opal necklace his mother promised him when he took a bride. Unfortunately, he and his mother had a falling out when he signed up to fight for the North and he came from a family of Southerners. Verity wants to help so in the guise of a catering server for her friend, she and Frankie attend Major Jackson's descendants' Christmas party at the old family mansion. Verity discovers things are not as the ghost described and she is determined to make it a Merry Christmas all around.
This shorty in the Southern Ghost Hunter series was a heartwarming holiday edition to the series. It's fun to have Verity and Frankie banter their way through another ghostly assignment that has a touch of romance.
Tavia Gilbert's narration of the story just made it even better.
All-round enjoyable quick short story between the larger novels of the series. I would recommend getting it after book two so the ongoing plot thread makes more sense.
Verity Long can see and talk to ghosts thanks to her resident ghost sidekick Frankie. So when her friend Major Matthew Jackson, long dead since the Civil War, comes to Verity for a favor, she's happy to do what she can to oblige. Matthew would like Verity's help to retrieve an old family heirloom from his family estate. And since it just so happens the Jacksons are holding their annual Christmas party this weekend, Verity straps on her catering hat to help out. But can she save the party, the reputation of her friend's catering business, and fulfill Matthew's request while all the Jackson ghosts are doing their darnedest to to dampen the festivities?
Though I've enjoyed the tales of Verity and the Southern Ghost Hunter Mysteries, I feel as if Verity brings many of her problems onto herself—she can be a bit of a ditz at times too. LOL That said, this series is charming, winsome, and witty, great for when you want a light-hearted, amusing read.
