    I finished it because I had to know how it ended so it got three stars. A pretty ditzy, southern, ghost story that at one point I was going abandon, but the ghost kept me hanging on. The rest of the plot and characters, not so much. This is for you if your up for silly.

    It's Vintage, Y'all, is a unique clothing boutique owned by Cookie Chanel. She's at an estate sale buying clothing that belonged to Charlotte Meadows, a wealthy business woman who'd been murdered two weeks before, when she first meets a ghost. It's Charlotte. Cookie is the only one who can see and talk to her. Living in Sugar Creek, Georgia, a small, thriving town, Cookie finds it awkward to be haunted by a ghost who won't stop talking and who go...

    This one just didn't work for me, in spite of having all the elements I'd normally enjoy. I loved the psychic cat though.Full review: http://jenn.booklikes.com/post/107307...

    Cookie Chanel was one tough cookie! Sole proprietress of It's Vintage Y'All, a vintage clothing store, Cookie had a great taste in fashion, especially with the classic ones. At an estate sale, the ghost of the recently murdered socialite, Charlotte Meadows, appeared to her, and asked for her help. Lady Charlotte believed Cookie would be the one who's going to uncover her mysterious death and discover her murderer.Shocked and bewildered, Cookie co...

    I really thought this was a very cute story. I enjoyed the characters and found many parts humorous. However, the mystery portion seemed a bit off. I didn't feel as if the story made the correct connections as to why, when, or who "did it". It just all of a sudden ended and here is the answer to the mystery. I am still looking forward to new adventures with the characters and am excited to read the next two books in the series.

    Ugh. Nope. The way the main character acted, even her daily basic stuff, just didn't make sense.

    If You've Got It, Haunt It by Rose Pressey is the first book in the Haunted Vintage Mystery series. I absolutely adored this paranormal cozy. After attending an estate sale, Cookie Chanel finds herself with more than vintage clothing...she's managed to pick up a ghost. Not only that, the ghost is a murder victim, and she wants Cookie to solve the crime. With Charlotte the ghost and Wind Song, a cat with strange abilities who showed up just as Coo...

    When I first started reading this book I didn't think I was going to like it. But I was really glad that I picked up the book and I continue to read it for a book club that I was a member of because I ended up falling in love with this book. And I have actually gone ahead and collected the next two books in the series and I cannot wait to pick up the next books and start to read them. The main character in the story is an absolutely wonderful cha...

    This is the first book in the Haunted Vintage Mystery Series. It was a good beginning to the series. It introduces us to the characters and gives us information about the town and some of the background. I enjoyed reading this book, it had some humour, some intrigue and the inkling that there will be some romance in the future.Cassandra "Cookie" Chanel has opened a vintage clothing store, "It's Vintage Y'all" in the small town of Sugar Creek, Geo...

    For most of this read I wore the red plaid Christmas pajama bottoms my wife purchased for me several years ago. For a top, I adorned the classicly hip "I love to grill" gray T-shirt that sports my passion for cooking. Passion, not fashion."With each new day, it was a treat to select an ensemble. Clothing was a way to express my personality. Every day held a surprise and a new combination based on my mood." And that, dear reader, is pretty much wh...

    Rose Pressey has done it again! Not only does she have a sassy, intelligent, independent main character, but she has created a 'detective' out of a character you would never have thought to be one, in this case, Cookie Chanel. Let's be honest because Cookie really does the work for Detective Valentine. Cookie was a character who I liked right off the bat and who made me smile throughout her adventure. Charlotte reminded me of a sassy grandmother ...

    If I were a size 4 and a ghost kept telling me I needed to watch what I ate, I would find a way to cut her non-corporeal body. Aside from that, I had an issue with the detective in this story. I know he had to be a bit clueless in order for our Girl Friday to do her thing, but wow. Seriously bad at his job and maybe not a very good person if he is ok with her lying to the police and disturbing crime scenes.Enjoyed the story but struggled with it'...
  • Minx -The Genre Minx Book Reviews
    This was a nice cozy mystery and if you are a fan of Jana DeLeon's cozy series, Ghost-in-Law, then this story would also appeal to you. Cookie Chanel is a vintage clothes store owner and somehow is able to see the ghost of socialite Charlotte Meadows. Cookie is not interested in any type of sleuthing and only starts to investigate into Charlotte's death after the ghost harassed her into it. There were comical moments in this story. I loved the ca...

    This was a fun read. Not the best I've ever read, but it had its moments and I enjoyed it.I like Cookie. She's sweet and sassy, and I share her love for fashion. The book has some fun fashion related moments and descriptions of vintage fashion which I enjoyed.The ghost was annoying. I know that was likely intentional, but she would have driven me around the bend if she haunted me.The murder mystery was fine, although the ending felt a bit abrupt ...
  • Bookgirlr
    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. 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 someth...

    I picked up this book as it has all the elements I love - paranormal, fun animals, and a mystery. I thought it would be a fun read like "A Witchcraft Mystery" series by Juliet Blackwell (which I love). I wanted to like this book, but sadly, I found it underwhelming and rather blah.My biggest issue is that I found the characters boring. First, Cassandra "Cookie" Chanel (really? A vintage fashionista who just happens to share the same last name as ...

    This one did not do it for me. There was too much clothing talk. The description of every single stitch that every single person in the entire book wore every single time they appeared got old by page 5. That's a bit too much filler. The mystery was okay but there wasn't enough of it. The characters were okay but again, too much about their attire and not enough about them.
  • Becky
    Really enjoyed this book. Excited to read the others.

And that is the sign of a good mystery, at least in my book :) .Charlotte, the recently deceased main character of the story (and ghost I might add) has some definite ideas as to how Cookie must approach the solving of her murder. Charlotte is NOT above nefarious means to get Co...

    Read this review on Got Fiction? book blogI have mixed feelings on this book. I thought it would be like the "A Witchcraft Mystery" series, which I LOVE Secondhand SpiritsSecondhand Spirits, so I snapped it up!But while it's fun, it's really not what I expected. There's no romance, but there's a hint of a romance; being that this is a cozy mystery, that's fine. I figured it would be more about the murder.And yet...there was something I can't put ...

  • Elizabeth D.
    While not a bad read, this book was definitely more style than substance. Cookie Chanel owns a vintage clothing store so the focus of the book is as much on what she and others around her are wearing as on the murder of a fashionable businesswoman whose ghost has attached herself to Cookie. That's not necessarily a bad thing as an original angle can add a lot of personality to a book which this does and can give the main character a specialized k...

    Sexual Content: NoneLanguage (Profanity/Slang) Content: Violent Content: MinimalWhen you open a vintage clothing boutique, you really don't expect to encounter a ghost, attached to her garments, at an estate sale. You surely wouldn't expect her to demand you do something about discovering who murdered her.Fortunately for us, Cookie was the one saddled, er, gifted with the presence of Charlotte and all of her designer clothing glory.

    I remember distinctly what I was wearing the day I first came face-to-face with a ghost. This is the first book in the Haunted Vintage Mystery Series. Cassandra "Cookie" Chanel has opened a vintage clothing store in the small town of Sugar Creek, Georgia. Cookie suddenly discovers that she can see ghosts when she attends an estate sale at the home of deceased socialite and real estate mogul, Charlotte Meadows. Charlotte decides that Cookie will f...
  • Sallee
    First in a new series by Rose Pressey, this has good elements that should make it a winner. Cookie, given name, Cassandra, Chanel runs a vintage clothing shop. When she arrives at the estate sale of Charlotte Meadows, recently murdered, she finds herself going through the deceased's clothing when she notices someone staring determinately at her. It is the ghost of the deceased. It seems no one can see her except Cookie, much less hear her talk. C...

These activities do not prepare her for being the chosen com...
  • Debbie
    I really enjoyed this book. I only had a problem with this book was that Charlotte would say that she didn't want to put Cookie in danger, then she would push her into it. She wants help finding her murderer but clams up when questioned about people in her life, and the det. wants Cookie to open up to him but when she says she's being followed he sort of blows her off. Now these are just irritants to me, it probably wouldn't bother most people. T...
