The Wrong Ghost by Victoria Connelly

When Beatrice Beaumont loses her husband, George, she finds herself raising their young daughter alone in the ancestral home, Ketton Hall, deep in the Suffolk countryside. With Christmas approaching and marking the first anniversary of George’s death, there’s nothing Bea wants more than to have him back again.

One night, she makes a wish for him to return and gets the shock of her life when a ghost appears. But it isn’t her George…

The Wrong Ghost is a delightful Christmas tale, full of warmth and charm, perfect for a dark winter’s night in a cosy, candle-lit room.


My review

This is an utterly charming festive tale. Yes, there’s gentle sadness, but Christmas is a time that’s can be a little melancholic as you remember your childhood Christmases long gone and think of those who are no longer here.

The characters we meet (both living and dead!) are strong and interesting and interact well. There’s a bit of family tension in Bea’s over-concerned mother and sister, but they work through it the way families do. Bea is a loving mum, sister and friend, and still coming to terms with no longer being a wife to George, just his widow.

Touching, sweet, definitely different, it’s a quick and enjoyable seasonal read.
