    Third book in A Haunted Vintage Mystery series!

    Haunt Couture and Ghosts Galore by Rose Pressey is the third book in A Haunted Vintage Mystery series. Cookie Chanel is providing vintage accessories to the Melanie Lee’s fashion show. Cookie figured it would be a good opportunity to showcase the items available in her store Vintage Y’all in Sugar Creek, Georgia. After the show Cookie is looking for Melanie. She goes out a door and finds Melanie on the ground. Hannah O’Neil a model is standing nearby. Then a ghost pops up next to Cookie. No, it is not Melanie. Sam Sanders is a ghost from the 40’s. He was a private investigator when he was alive. He is attached to the grey fedora (that Cookie bought at an estate sale) that is laying near Melanie’s body (which is now in police custody). Charlotte Meadows, the ghost that is already attached to Cookie, is thrilled to see Sam and starts flirting with him. Now Cookie has two ghosts to contend with. Hannah is arrested for the murder of Melanie despite her protests that she is innocent. Charlotte and Sam want Cookie to investigate the crime. Sam misses using his PI skills. So Cookie and her sidekicks set off to investigate the murder. Will Cookie be able to figure out who murdered Melanie in time to save Hannah? Can Cookie get back Sam’s hat so he can cross over? Cookie will have to solve the crime in between her dates with Detective Dylan Valentine and Ken Harrison (attorney), running her shop, taking care of her cat, Wind Song (who is psychic) and acquiring new items for Vintage Y’all. Haunt Couture and Ghosts Galore is a humorous, paranormal mystery (and sometimes a little too silly). The book also contains Sam’s Sleuthing Tips and Cookie’s Savvy Vintage Clothing Shopping Tips. Some phrases are repeated too often throughout the book (like it is filler). At the end of the book, there are some unanswered questions (I wish I could tell you but they are spoilers). I also wondered why Cookie did not keep tarot cards or a Ouija board around since that is the only way her cat communicates (at least most of the time). She waits for her friend, Heather Sweet to bring them over from her shop. Wouldn’t someone that keeps asking the cat questions keep these items around? After a while you really start to wonder how Cookie makes any money with her shop. She seems to spend most of her time running around town leaving her store closed. When Cookie does have the store open, she seems to chase away her customers with her paranoid attitude. The author provides many possible killers, but the mystery is really very simple (and can be solved early in the book). I wish more of the book was given to the mystery. I give Haunt Couture and Ghosts Galore 3 out of 5 stars (maybe I am too critical or overthinking it). We do get a preview of the next book in A Haunted Vintage Mystery series at the end of the novel. I received a complimentary copy of Haunt Couture and Ghosts Galore from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

    Fun read

    As usual this was a fun read :-) I enjoy the stories, I'm never quite sure who the culprit is til the end, the background romance isn't too heavy and the main characters are quite amusing.
