Who let the dogs...and cats...out?

Verity Long's new ghost hunting career has gone to the dogs, literally. A spirit is releasing animals from their cages at the Sugarland Animal Rescue Center. It's an unusual haunting that gets even more bizarre when she uncovers a new clue in a case of a missing child. Verity vows to reunite the lost boy with his family. And when she does, Verity just might answer the age-old question: Do all dogs go to heaven?

Who's letting the dogs out? Cats too? Oh myyyy. No one that can be seen. Best they better call Verity! This latest short story by the amazing and amusing Angie Fox is an adorable between meal snack in her Southern Ghost Hunters Mystery series. It is light-hearted (well except for Frankie's grumbling) and page turning. Definitely, a must read for us Verity and Frankie addicts. And don't forget Lucy the skunk. She's learning a new trick.

Dog Gone Ghost is part of the Southern Ghost Hunter mysteries by Angie Fox. Verity Long, ghost hunter, is approached by Bree Lamont of the Sugarland Animal Sanctuary to help solve the mystery of how the animal cages are opening at night. Bree even spent the night in the sanctuary trying to catch the culprit only to see the cages open all by themselves. With Verity's ghostly accomplice Frankie the German begrudgingly accompanying her to the sanctuary, she is able to solve more than one mystery and bring peace to a grieving family. Written in Ms. Fox's signature style, this short story makes a perfect bridge between Deader Homes and Gardens and her anticipated Sweet Tea and Spirits due out later this spring. Again, her description of an otherworldly plane will bring chills and her ability to communicated with those on the other side is unnerving. I do recommend this story.

I love this series! The author keeps you on your toes throughout the entire book. This one is a novella and I do recommend that you read them in order. Verity and Frankie are a great team! This story touched my heart because of the dogs being let out at a shelter (I love dogs) and the mystery behind it.

Super cute and quick read! Verity manages to get Frankie to help a little boy out with his dog issue. Despite being short this story made me chuckle... and tear up. Well worth the read! :) **I received a complimentary ebook in exchange for a honest review.**

Love the Southern Ghost Hunters series & & Dog Gone Ghost does not disappoint. I am such a fan of Verity, Frankie, & the rest of the gang & this story is even better because it focuses on dogs! My only complaint of Dog Gone Ghost is that its too short. Book provided by the author & I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy

Verity Long is back and she's brought her gangter ghost Frankie with her! She's been asked to find who is letting the animals loose at the Sugarland Animal Rescue. With a friendly trade of ghost hunting for skunk training, she's off and running with Frankie in tow. I LOVE THIS STORY!! So full of feels and quite a few tears. Verity helps find the one who is searching and the family who is lost. Such a great story of closure and love.

Never having been a big fan of novellas, I’ve lately been changing my mind, and this novella is a big part of that reason. Verity is asked by Bree from the local animal shelter to help them because someone or something is letting the animals out of their cages, and Bree is sure it’s a ghost. Since Verity has a good conscience, she can’t let anything happen to the animals and agrees to help, especially when Bree agrees to help with Lucy in learning a new skill: using a leash. What follows is a very heart-warming, touching, wonderful mystery that will make you cry at the end. Even though this is a novella, it still feels full-length because there is so much packed into this story: love, kindness, and even a little sadness. This whole series is so much fun, and Ms. Fox is a great storyteller, you just fall in love with all the characters. This is a can’t-be-missed novella for all fans of the series. If you haven’t read the series, you can start here, but I’d start at the beginning, as all the books are great. Highly recommend! Thanks to the author for the e-book which I read voluntarily. This exact review will be posted on both Amazon and Goodreads.

Angie Fox managed to put enough of an emotional punch in this short story for an entire novel. She is a great author and I can't recommend her enough! Can't wait for the next adventure with Verity and Frankie. Hopefully Lucy will start getting comfortable with Frankie soon!

Loved this short story! Verity is at it again, helping a local animal shelter dealing with paranormal activity, and in doing so, putting an open missing persons case to rest. This novella was a sweet tale that left me feeling happy. Love the Southern Ghost Hunter Series!

Awesome! Awesome! Awesome! Dog Gone Ghost novella is part of the Southern Ghost Hunter Mystery series (4.5) It's a Supernatural Who Done It. There's no cliffhanger at the end & it could easily be read as a stand alone book. Dog Gone Ghost is just the best ‘Dawg Gone’ Ghost Hunter Mystery so far. I know, I know, I always say that, but that’s because every instalment gets better & better & I recommend you read them all. The Author writes fluidly & the tempo is perfectly paced. The depth of her characters (Verity Long, Her pet Skunk Lucy & her sidekick ghost Frankie) makes this book hook you from the very first page. Once you start, you won’t want to stop so make sure you’re comfortable. It’s beautifully written in the shape of an arrow, aimed straight & true into the centre of your heart! It should come with a Public Safety Warning “Beware! This Story WILL Make You Cry, Will Make You Sad & Will Make You Laugh Out Loud” I can’t wait for the next instalment (foot tapping impatiently)

I will tell you up front that I love this series. I love the characters and the writing. This is a great short story (I really wish it was longer!). It’s a great way to meet Verity and the cast of characters in the Southern Ghost Hunter Series. No matter what is going on in her personal life, Verity stays true to herself and does what is right. I love that about her!! It is a great way to be introduced to the series. It is also a great in between, for people like me, who can’t wait for the next book!!

This is a short msytery between the Southern Ghost Mystery novels. Verity & Frankie, her gangster ghost sidekick, are hired to find out who is letting the animals out of their cages at the local animal shelter. In exchange someone at the shelter offers to teach Lucy, her pet skunk, to walk on a leash. A feel good read. Mystery solved, Frankie & Lucy reach an agreement, and we find out Frankie can be a softy at times.

In this latest installment of The Southern Ghost Hunter Mysteries Verity and Frankie are called upon to figure out who is letting the animals out of their cages at night at the local animal sanctuary. This story really grabbed me emotionally and I have to admit, I teared up while reading it. It's a wonderful story about the connection between people and their pets. I was happy that we got to hear more about my favorite skunk, Lucy. This series has it all, humor, sadness, love and joy. I can't wait for the next story in this series.

A novella in the Southern Spirit series, this story expanded the character development of two main characters and Lucy, the skunk. It was exciting to see how the major theme of training Lucy followed the characters in every part of the plot even in figuring out the puzzles exhibited by the ghosts. The storyline drew the reader into trying to find out what was happening at the animal rescue and with the ghost that was found. The interactions between the characters had me laughing, crying, and then sympathizing. It was a marvelous experience watching the story progression. This engaging novella provided insight into the grieving process. I loved the characters especially the ghosts and would highly recommend this novella.

This is a short story in the Southern Ghost Hunter Series. You can read this story even if you've never read another one of these books. I loved the way that Verity and Frankie worked together in this one. To witness the love between a boy and his dog was wonderful. Bringing everything full circle is what Verity does best and she did it again in this story. A wonderful read and a good introduction if you've never tried one of these books.

Verity has bought a harness for Lucy, her pet skunk. She is hoping to teach her to walk on a leash so she can get some exercise. A car pulled into the driveway that she did not recognize. It was Bree LaMont a worker at the animal sanctuary. They were having a problem with dogs mostly but also some cats and rabbits being let out of their cages. Bree thinks it is a ghost and she wants Verity to check it out. It is good to be back with Verity, Lucy and Frankie. Frankie is starting to enjoy his role in Verity's Ghost hunting business more. Lucy is still afraid of Frankie but she might be mellowing too. These books are something I look forward to reading. I love Lucy and Frankie and Verity too. I love the people and the town. It feels like going to visit a good friend!

Dog Gone Ghost by Angie Fox is the latest short story (Book 4.5) in The Southern Ghost Hunter Mysteries. Verity Long is trying to teach her pet skunk, Lucy to walk outside using an adorable gingham harness and matching leash. Unfortunately, the training is not going well. It does not help that Lucy is afraid of Frankie, the resident 20s gangster ghost. Verity is trying to coax Lucy out from the woodpile when she is approached by Bree LaMont. Bree works at the Sugarland Animal Sanctuary. Recently, someone has started letting the animals out of their cages at night. Bree would like Verity to use her ghost hunting abilities, but she is unable to pay her. Verity agrees to trade leash training for ghost hunting. Everyone is happy except Frankie, who prefers cold hard cash. It takes a little convincing, but Verity finally gets Frankie to agree to assist. Later that night, Verity, Lucy and Frankie head to the sanctuary. In solving the sanctuary’s problem, Verity will also get answers on what happened to a little boy who disappeared a decade ago. Join Verity, Frankie and Lucy on their latest caper in Dog Gone Ghost. Dog Gone Ghost is just delightful. It will make you laugh out loud, and you might even shed a tear. I found Dog Gone Ghost to be well-written, easy to read, and to have a fast pace. This book (actually the series) has loveable characters that you want to revisit again and again. I give Dog Gone Ghost 5 out of 5 stars. Dog Gone Ghost is a short story, but it is a delightful addition to The Southern Ghost Hunter Mysteries. While Dog Gone Ghost can be read alone, I suggest you read all the books in this highly engaging series. Frankie, his friends and antics are a constant source of amusement. I cannot wait for Sweet Tea and Spirits (the next book in the series) to come out this spring.
