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.

Wow! Laughs, Love, So many emotions <3

I loved this short so much! I've never 'read' an audible book that drew me in so much and I write this with a few tears in my eyes from all of the emotions. So much of everything packed in this little short. I highly recommend it!

Basically a Short Story to Keep the Series Alive

This was a delightful listen while I cleaned the kitchen and got caught up with some correspondence. Single purpose and direction, but enjoyable characters. I listened out of order by mistake and was wondering where the love interest from book one had gone, but I'll roll back to the beginning and catch up. There really wasn't time for extra details in this episodic selection.

Just Love Verity Long

Found the narrator hard to listen to but thankfully this was a short book. Loved the story though. Such a lovely story

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!
