Publisher's Summary

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?

5 Stars

5 Stars. Dog Gone Ghost is book 4.5 in the Southern Ghost Hunter Mysteries series. This is a cozy mystery told in 1st person POV for main character Verity Long. This book is a quick read/listen at only 53 pages or 1 hour and 10 minutes.

The series is about a woman named Verity who unknowingly cleans out a man named Frankie's ashes from an old vase looking jar into her rosebushes and it traps his ghost on her property allowing him to only leave when Verity takes his urn off the property. The ghost, Frankie, shows himself to her and so begins her ability to see ghosts.

In this book, Verity gets a ghost hunting job at the local animal shelter. Someone has been letting all of the animals out of their cages at night and a shelter worked offered Verity a trade. She will help leash train Verity's pet skunk, Lucy, if Verity will get to the bottom of the animal escapes at the shelter. Things take a turn when Verity sees the ghost who is causing the trouble and recognizes him as a nine year old boy, named Parker, who went missing 10 years prior. Parker's faithful dog, Bailey, has recently died and Parker is searching for her everywhere. Verity, Frankie, and Parker go on the search for Bailey so the boy and his dog can be reunited. In Dog Gone Ghost, Verity does something she has never done before with a spirit. Something that reaffirms her abilities and the good she can do.

I'm not sure if I would have enjoyed reading this book as much as I enjoyed listening to it. The narrator does a really good job. Her voices were distinct and clear and her pronunciation was good.

So far, I still recommend this series!

Huge Emotional Punch in Little Package

So I really love these little novellas that go with this series. They are great little additions and ramp up the emotional level a lot higher than the other books in the series. Verity is up to her usual “do-gooder” status in this one and drags Frankie along kicking and screaming as usual. I liked the fact the ghost in this one wasn’t from the historical time of Sugarland but was rather a more recent inductee to the ghost world. The story just comes down the tale of a boy and his dog and is wonderfully sweet. The only issue I had with this book is that Frankie was a little inconsistent as compared to book 4 and book 5 in the series. This story is in between those two but Frankie is closer to a book 2 Frankie not a book 4 Frankie.

Love love love

This book pulled me in immediately. I wish I could get all of the books included. But there are two short stories and they are great. Good writing is good writing and I knew first thing this was good writhing for me. The story moves along, keeping me interested. Original premise. Love the skunk. It’s the series for me. Doesn’t even remind me of another series which is hard to do. Try it.

Heartwarming ghost story!

Dog Gone Ghost
By: Angie Fox
Narrated by: Tavia Gilbert
This is a novella of a ghostly adventure! I love this series even though I haven't been reading them in order. This one is a mystery at the humane society. Someone keeps opening up the cages and letting the animals out and scaring the staff! Our ghost whisperer,😉, says she will help and gets her ghostly gangster to help her. It turns out to be a very touching and heartwarming story! I am so glad I got this book!
Great narration too!

A Captivating Short Story!

I am already a fan of Ms Fox's writing style and this short story didn't let me down. It is written with the same level of detail and care as her full novels and I loved it; I found myself on the edge of my seat with tension (and a wee bit of fear), tears trailed down my cheeks with emotion but there were enough chuckle moments to balance it all out nicely. No hunky Sheriff Ellis in this story but Lucy Verity's gorgeous pet skunk and ghostly gangster Frankie have their roles to play in this tale I'm happy to say.

I downloaded the narration too and once again enjoyed being whisked away to Sugarland by Tavia Gilbert's performance - fabulous!

The only reason I rated this 4 stars not 5 was down to the length Vs price but I worry that I'm doing the story a disservice - it really is 5 star quality!
