    4-1/2 Stars. I always find a new Haunted Vintage Mystery fun and entertaining! Book 6 raced me to the Kentucky Derby with Cookie Chanel, owner of a nifty vintage boutique. Along for the ride is a new ghost, Maureen, who owned some of the hats Cookie purchased for a customer. Also, the ghost of Ramon, a jockey who was supposed to be riding one of the Derby contenders suddenly appears and Cookie is asked to solve two murders. Luckily, her savvy and...

    The Haunted Vintage Mystery series is a fun, quirky cozy mystery series. Main character, Cookie Chanel, owns a vintage clothing store, It's Vintage, Y'all. Her best friend, Hannah, is the proud owner of an occult shop. It's a blessing she has a friend with knowledge of the spirit world because Cookie is a ghost-magnet. Not only that, but her grandmother's spirit now inhabits her pet cat. The cat passes messages to Cookie by moving a planchette ar...

    If the Haunting Fits, Wear It is the fifth book in Rose Pressey’s Haunted Vintage Mystery series. There is excellent background information, which allows this book to be read as a stand-alone. This is an entertaining cozy paranormal mystery with well-developed characters, but the writing in this installment doesn’t flow as smoothly as the previous books in this series. Some of the details are off and some things are repeated more often than n...

    I was interested in seeing Cookie get out of town thinking it would perk up the series. Unfortunately, the derby elements and descriptions was really down played. The story was fairly typical with Cookie picking up the temporary ghost(s) du jour and having issues with the guys on her line.There's no development, there is a bit of repetition and why does she refer to the cat by both her grandmother's name and a cat name (and we get told about both...

    Cookie Chanel has landed a plum gig - she’s attending the Kentucky Derby with her rich friend Danielle, and all she has to do is help Danielle choose outfits and hats. Because of this, she’s in the attic of a home recently purchased, and the owner said she could take whatever she wanted. Before she’s able to do so, however, she’s confronted by a ghost named Maureen who informs her that the hats belong to her and Cookie can’t have them. ...

    I'll preface this by saying I've never read any other books by this author and I don't normally read these cozy "Saturday morning" mysteries. The reason I decided to read this one is because my boyfriend was shelving books at work and he texted me a picture of the cover and I thought it was ridiculous so I told him to check it out for me. Cookie Chanel is a vintage fashion blogger, amateur sleuth, spiritual medium, etc. etc. etc. In this book you...

    *** Possible Spoilers ***This book is fluff and needs to be evaluated accordingly. On the cover is an endorsement from Janet Evanovich and it seems like the author was attempting to follow Ms. Evanovich's formula for success.The heroine is a bit of a ditz who is surrounded by quirky characters. in this case the characters are ghosts. She has a feisty grandmother who happens to be dead and possessing the body of a cat. She has an arms-length mothe...

I've been back and forth between Ken and Dylan for about three books, but the last book made me feel that Dylan is the best fit for Cookie. I adore Ken, don't get me wrong, but I'm a Dylan fan :) ...

    Princess Fuzzypants here:Ghosts, cats, vintage fashion and The Kentucky Derby all combine for a whole lot of fun in this book. I have enjoyed the series where Cookie is now the PI for the dead who haunt her until she uncovers the villain behind their demises. The ghost of her first case has stuck around like a post mortem sidekick and her grandmother now shares the body of her cat, Wind Song, who is quite handy around a ouijia board. If this soun...

    This is not my first Rose Pressey book. In fact, she is on the list of authors that I search for at the used book store. I really enjoy her Haunted Vintage Mystery Series, and was happy to review this book. This is the fifth book in the series. This one was a bit of a departure, as we traveled with Cookie to Kentucky to see the Derby instead of hanging out in her Vintage Clothing shop in Georgia. We get to go to the fancy parties and hang out wit...

    *******Copy from NetGalley in return for an honest review *****I read the first book in this series in 2014 and wanted to like it but had some problems with it. I said then that I might come back and check in on the series in a few books time and see how it had developed and so here I am. But it didn't work for me I'm afraid, the dialogue is stilted and the addition of more ghosts (some of whom (still) got on my nerves) put the premise is on the ...
