Hello Fellow Book Lovers. Today, I’m sharing my thoughts about Ghost of a Chance (Southern Ghost Hunter Mystery #2.5) by Angie Fox
Usually, when I read a book I don’t write a full review, I just write a paragraph or two to publish on Amazon and Goodreads; especially if it’s a book with thousands of reviews already.
So with that in mind, today, I want to share my thoughts about a great little novella that I read during the festive fortnight last year …

What did I think about Ghost of a Chance?
I’m already a big fan of this series. I love Ms Fox’s writing style. The pace at which her tales flow, how she weaves all the elements together and how she manages to engage me completely in the story. She seamlessly weaves present-day mysteries with those of the past and always includes a twist that surprises me!
Although Ghost of a Chance is a quick short read, all of my expectations were met beautifully. It still managed to put a smile on my face and a tear in my eye.
I downloaded the narration and was once again impressed by Tavia Gilbert‘s performance. The pace at which she read, the emotions she infused into the different scenes and the tonal variations she used for the dialogue.
I really loved this sweet ghostly story and only rated it 4 stars instead of 5 because I am reluctant to award 5 stars to books this short.
There is absolutely no offensive content within these pages – language, violence or sex. Therefore, I can recommend it to lovers of charming, paranormal mystery tales. Especially those who enjoy a sprinkling of humour and a happy ever after ending.

Southern Ghost Hunter Mysteries
The Southern Ghost Hunter Mysteries sits comfortably in the ‘cozy mystery’ genre. Although, some of the ghostly scenes feel less than cosy. 😉 This murder mystery series is set in modern America – Sugarland, Tennessee to be exact – and features the town’s residents, both living and deceased. Each book contains a new self-contained mystery for our heroine, Verity, to solve.
