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 ...more

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. Following someone because you think you see them and nothing ha ...more

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 ...more

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.

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 ...more
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, ...more

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.
When she's not writing quirky and fun mysteries, she loves eating cupcakes with sprinkles, reading, spending time with family, and listening to oldies from the fifties.
