I received a free copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Cookie Chanel and her ghostly sidekick Charlotte are back in another fun adventure with unusual fashion tips. This series is so entertaining with loads of laughs that I just loved it! While I'm not into vintage fashion, the characters are so well-written with the mystery being the main focal point, that it doesn't detract from the story in any way. Charlotte is such a hoot and so opinionated that you just gotta l

It's always a pleasure to read a book in the Haunted Vintage Series by Rose Pressey.

Cookie Chanel loves all things vintage and she has even grown to love her ghostly sidekick Charlotte. When author Juliana McDaniel wants to get Cookie's expert advice on vintage clothing, Cookie is flattered and pleased. Unfortunately, Juliana never makes it to the meeting, at least not her life form. Having another ghost following her should make her crazy, however, it motivates e=her to help Juliana find out wh

I got this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

I was so excited for this book. It's really sweet, cute, and easy read. I absolutely look forward to the next one.

However, I gave it 3 stars and it should be more like 3.5 but wasn't quite enough to round up to 4 stars. The main characters were super sweet and I loved them, but I feel like the majority of the book was just repeating the same scene over and over again.

This is actually the first book in this series that I've read. It was a light and fun read. I actually was able to read it all in one sitting. I didn't want to put it down. The mystery was one that kept me guessing. I wasn't a fan of the fashion tips parts. I felt it took away from the momentum of the story. That's the only reason I didn't give it 5 stars. I'll likely go back and read the first three books in the series at some point. I look forward to the next book in the series though.

Cookie Chanel was on her way to meet author Juliana McDaniel for a research interview about vintage clothing. Unfortunately, Juliana met a tragic death on a car accident, and before she knew it, the It's Vintage Ya'll owner was talking to Juliana's ghost. With her ghost companion Charlotte Meadows, best friend tarot card reader Heather, and Ouija board fanatic Wind Song the cat, they're bound to discover an ugly family secret and haunting mystery surrounding Juliana's death.

Cute and funny with a smidgen of sadness!

When Cookie left to meet with a client, Juliana, she never expected to come across a murder scene. She expected the murder victim to be Juliana even less.

While Cookie, her friend Heather, her ghost friend Charlotte, and also her physic cat try to solve this murder so Juliana can move on things get more and more complicated and dangerous.

Cookie is dating Dylan and it also looks likes she has another male admirer in Ken. It seems there is a triangle here
Hm, this is a hard book to rate. I love the premise of the vintage shop owner solving mysteries with a ghost by her side and a psychic, Ouija-board using cat. However, the actual mystery itself is lackluster. *spoiler* the whole book is trying to figure out which of these 3 people is the killer. Well, turns out by the end they were all in cahoots. Ok? That's been done. And it's not even explained WHERE the stolen money came from and why these three people felt the NEED to hid it in someone's gra ...more

I received a copy free of charge from Netgalley and the publisher for an honest review. I enjoyed the story the author had to tell. The characters are related and you find yourself caring what happens. Cookie Chanel owns a vintage clothing shop. She loves anything vintage, from her store to her clothing to her home, even her car is vintage. She can also see ghosts. The ghosts come to her for help in solving their murder. Cookie even has a cat, Wind Song, that seems to be a bit psychic. She speak ...more

The ending was a bit vague

Terrific read until the end where it lost momentum, fizzled out and got a bit vague. Who was the brains behind the plot? Who was in the plot? The characters however were a delight, fully developed and crystal clear.
She loves her vintage clothing store and has agreed to being interviewed about vintage clothing. However on the way she comes across a police incident and by the time she leaves, she knows there was a fatality and has acquired another ghost. Oh yeah, she can

I do enjoy this series. I am a bit weary of the repetitive 'Tips' that are from earlier books. Funny the first time around but the the 4th. I do acknowledge that first time readers will not understand this past sentence...

The main characters are jewels. The interaction between the living and dead are great. I wish Cookie Chanel would tell her boyfriend, Dylan that she has this ability and see his 'reaction.' Perhaps soon it will be written.

This volume was about Hats and more hats. T

Review: I don't know why I really enjoy this series but I do! Its full of ghosts in cute outfits, cats that are dead people, a vintage clothing shop and all things fun! There were a few characters to keep track of in this book so I had to keep them all in order. The police man lets Cookie in on info that in real life would not happen, but these are all allowances we make for these light fun books. I enjoy the vintage shopping and ghost outfit tips at the beginning of each chapter, I love the des

If you're looking for a book that includes a lot of vintage description, this is a good book for you. If you were looking for a cozy mystery, there are better options elsewhere. To sum up, there are a lot of loose ends in the plot without much explanation. The love triangle subplot feels a little off because at least to me, it only exists to drop Cookie necessary information about the murder and investigations around it. The Cookie's Grandmother subplot, which I'm assuming spans multiple books, ...more

While I enjoyed the story and the vibrant characters, I did run into a few issues.

I'm sure others have noticed a name typo within about 4 or 5 sentences. Tricia becomes Trisha once and goes back. It happens, biggie.

Now, their first visit to Fatima was fine, but the second trip/conversation? It's like the first time never happened. There's no reference to it and the conversation goes almost exactly the same.

There is also a point when she schedules a lunch date with Ken and it doesn't happen. Yet,

Cookie Chanel runs Vintage Y'all clothing store and has a habit of picking up ghosts wherever she goes and this is book is no different. Cookie is suppose to meet with an author to share her vintage knowledge and ends up gathering her up as her newest ghost. So Cookie with the help of her friends, the ghosts and some new crazy characters have to solve the mystery.

I've read several books in this series and love them all. All the characters are loveable especially her cat. I would totally recommen

It was ok.

Cookie was kinda annoying in this one.

The ghost was a twit.

The story line was not at all smooth and resolutions were almost afterthoughts - like the author suddenly remembered that she’d placed that crumb and needed to resolve it.

Also - puh-leese quit with the love triangle.

Personally I like Ken but not for Cookie. He needs a cooler chick.

Anyway, I’ll read the next one to see if Rose Pressey can bring it back.

Plus - I really hate the name of the store. It’s damn stupid.

Yet another love triangle? I have been reading cozy's for quite some time and that seems to be the norm, however, I did read this fairly quickly, it was hard to put down at times.

Somewhat corny and repetitive, I still find it a cute series. I do love everything about the vintage fashions. Some of the characters are great. The villains in this book remind me of overacting silent film stars. I’ll read the next one anyway.
