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.
This is a cute little novella set in Angie Fox’s Southern Ghost Hunter series.
As the title suggests this is her take on A Christmas Carol, only instead of Scrooge we get Verity, with Frankie along for the ride and her own personal Wydell ghosts of past, present and future.
The ghosts are popping in to help Verity find her place in the Wydell family after she finally stands up to Veronica her evil sort-of-mother-in-law.
I always love Verity’s adventures and this novella captured the Christmas spirit perfectly.
Frankie showed his soft side and Verity learnt that she could stand up to Veronica without loosing herself. All in all a delightful little Christmas tale.
