Title: If You’ve Got It, Haunt It
Author: Rose Pressey
Series: A Haunted Vintage Mystery #1
Synopsis: “Cookie Chanel has a passion for fashion – and a murder mystery to Solve!
“Cookie Chanel has opened her own vintage clothing boutique, It’s Vintage; Y’All, in the charming town of Sugar Creek Georgia. Always on the lookout for stylish second-hand steals, she attends the estate sale of deceased socialite Charlotte Meadows. But she gets a lot more than she bargained for when Charlotte’s ghost appears before her – offering fashion advice and begging Cookie to find out who murdered her.
“As the persistent poltergeist tags along and a possibly psychic pussycat moves into the shop, Cookie sorts through racks of suspects to see who may be hiding some skeletons in the closet. Do a clothing store owner and a disembodied socialite have a ghost of a chance of collaring a killer – or will Cookie’s life be the next one hanging by a thread?”
Review: I needed something light after my last read, which was dark and heavy. (If that interests you see my review of The Vanishing by Sophia Tobin here) Any novel written by Rose Pressey that I’ve ever read has always been entertaining, light and fluffy to read. If You’ve Got It, Haunt It was no exception. I enjoy reading about vintage clothing connoisseurs, and I enjoyed Cookie as a character. Cookie is a reluctant detective. Solving mysteries and hunting for murderers is not really her idea of a good time. She just wants to live her quiet life and run her vintage clothing store. Charlotte bullies her into it, like that scene from Ghost where Patrick Swayze annoys Whoopie Goldberg until she agrees to do what he wants. Here’s a video in case you don’t remember that scene:
If you are looking for a serious, edge of your seat, thrill ride of a read this is not it. If you are looking for something more light hearted and fun then definitely give the A Haunted Vintage Mystery series a try.
