A Ghostly Gift (Southern Ghost Hunters Mysteries 1.5) by Angie Fox
This was a book given for review.
We are back visiting with Verity Long and her ghost hunting ghost side kick gangster Frankie ‘the German’ Valentine.
In this novella Melody, Verity’s younger sister, asks her to help her friend from high school who owns a second hand/antique shop in town. She has a bit of a ghost problem that is starting to damage some of the more delicate collectibles. Frankie is not into it because there is no money in it, just a kitchen table and chairs. Verity says she see what they can do.
That night she finds out that the shop used to be a bar and still is for ghosts, mostly men. There is a young soldier from WWII there who is upset because he is missing his love and now the ring he gave her, and she promised to never take off, is in the shop and there is a sickness around it that says she is dying.
Private Johnny Cleveland needs her to find his Miame Bee and get the ring back to her before she passes. Verity can’t say no.
This is a wonderful little tale of Verity getting her feet a little wetter in the ghost hunting business without all the danger that surrounded her first foray into that world. A timeless love story that bound two together from 1942 to present day.
I really loved this story. A solid five stars. If you have not read this series before, this is a good story to cut your teeth on. Part of the series but easily a stand alone.
Thank you, Ms. Fox, for sharing your world with us.
