Sugar Creek is all abuzz. A film is being shot on a historic plantation, and vintage clothing store owner Cookie Chanel is thrilled to provide authentic period outfits for its stars.

But when Cookie discovers the temperamental leading lady drowned in a pond, wearing a lovely vintage dress, she's suddenly on location at a real-life crime scene. And when a ghost says the dress belongs to her, the number of clues Cookie has to investigate rivals the size of her shoe collection. With the supernatural support of her psychic cat, Cookie must find a killer in the cast of suspects before the curtain falls on her...

"An appealing protagonist who is as sweet as a Southern accent."??Library Journal
"[A] chic and quirky heroine."??Jennie Bentley, author of the Do-It-Yourself Mysteries

Cassandra Chanel, better known as Cookie Chanel has provided a film company with vintage clothing for a movie. She is on the set for the day and while wandering around she overhears a heated conversation between the two lead actors. When she later finds a body floating in the pond, it turns out to be the actress she had just overheard. Cookie has the ability to see and hear ghosts. When she turns around to get help, she sees a woman in vintage clothing standing there. It does not take her long to realize that Alice, is a ghost. Apparently, the actress is wearing a dress that once belonged to Alice. Cookie, who met Charlotte in the first book in the series, has been ghost free for a while as once Charlotte's murder was solved she no longer has to stay with Cookie, but Charlotte appears soon after Alice comes on the scene. Cookie feels the need to solve the murder , especially with the prodding of Alice and Charlotte. She persists even though Detective Dylan Valentine wants her to stay out of the investigation, at least in the beginning.

I like the characters of Cookie, her quirky friend Heather, Charlotte and Alice. Their interactions are fun and rather humourous. With Windsong, the psychic cat that can use a Ouija board and read Tarot cards helping to solve the mystery, you can't help but smile. I really hoped that Cookie and Dylan would get together, but this book introduces Ken, the lawyer who has eyes for Cookie. I didn't really like him in the story, something about him rubbed me the wrong way. I hope we do not have a never ending love triangle developing. The mystery in the story was not too hard to figure out, but it was still fun to see how it would be solved and how much trouble Cookie would get into. I enjoy this series and look forward to the next installment. Cozy mystery readers who enjoy a fun story with some paranormal thrown in should enjoy this book. ( )

There seem to be more and more “paracozies” in the cozy market these lately. If they are all as well written as the Haunted Vintage Mystery series, I say Keep them coming!

Protagonist Cookie Chanel is one part “Ghost Whisper”, one part business owner and vintage clothing expert, and one part amateur sleuth. As the saying goes, she wears many hats. And with cookie, you can guarantee they are all stylish. ;-)

I loved that every other chapter stared off with Cookie’s Savvy Vintage Fashion Shopping Tips and Charlotte’s Handy-Dandy Tips for Navigating the Afterlife. I simply adore when authors do this in books. It makes it that much more exciting to get to each new chapter.

The action started off right away in ALL DRESS UP AND NO PLACE TO HAUNT and kept going at a wonderful pace. Because the story flowed so well, it was one of those ones I hated to put down, and I didn’t much. I read it through pretty fast. Each chapter just begging me to read it, and the one after that and the one…..well, you get my point.

This was a fun story that had me laughing even as the mystery was growing of who killed the leading lady, and a new ghost pops up needing help from Cookie and her resident ghost Charlotte. The questions kept coming and the intrigue kept building until author Rose Pressey wrapped everything up in an expertly penned ending.

And check out the back of the book for An Excerpt from Cookie Chanel’s Fashion Blog, Tips for Living with a Psychic Cat, and an excerpt from Book three, HAUNT COUTOUR AND GHOSTS GALORE coming in fall of this year, 2015! ( )
