    A Passion for Haunted Fashion (A Haunted Vintage Mystery #6) by Rose Pressey is a book I requested and the review is voluntary. I love a good ghost story and this was a funny and fun ghost, murder mystery. Lots of suspects, clues, craziness, and suspense to go with the silliness. Made me giggle lots of times! I have heard that this author was funny but now I know just how good she is! I have several of her books I haven't started but I sure will ...

    A Passion for Haunted Fashion is the sixth installment in Rose Pressey’s A 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 and twists and turns as well as several suspects for Cookie and her ghostly friends to investigate. Some of the details are off and a few things are repeated more ofte...

    I felt this book was ok. There are sections that aren’t consistent, for example when Dylan says they couldn’t determine Peggy’s cause of death when they found her body, then later states that they have to find Peggy’s body. Cookie seems to be very timid and wish-washy in this book. There are two murders to investigate, Morris who is stabbed in the theater and Peggy, a ghost from the 1920’s who is haunting the theater. Most of the “inv...

    Cookie sees ghosts! Her cat Wind Song hosts the ghost of her grandmother (and communicates via Ouija), Charlotte, and now she's met Peggy at the theater where she's overseeing costumes. When Cookie's friend Heather is found standing over a dead man (Morris), well of course she has to investigate. This is classic cozy territory with the addition of paranormal. Cookie has two love interests (hmm) and a lively career in vintage clothing. Nicely done...

    This one was a bit off for me compared to the others in the series. I was super excited to see this one on Netgalley (thank you for an advance copy in exchange for an honest review). I can't quite put my finger on it, the writing felt disjointed and the characters not as cohesive as they normally are. Still worth the read, especially if you're a fan of the series. If this was your first foray into the Haunted Vintage Mystery Series, and you weren...

While in the basement she hears a scream and runs toward the stage where she sees her friend Heather (who is in the play) standing over the body of the main actor with blood on her hands. After calling the police she helps Heather clean herself up and eventually hears her boyfriend, homicide det...

    While I am by no means a fashionista, but I adore this series. This is the 6th book in the Haunted Vintage Mystery. Cookie owns It's Vintage Y'all in Sugar Creek, Georgia, a vintage clothing boutique. She wears vintage clothes, and drives around her grandfather's cherry 1948 Buick convertible (which is so cool!). She sees and speaks to ghosts. In addition, during a seance, her grandmother entered the body of her cat, so now the cat works the Ouij...

    I have mixed feelings about A Passion for Haunted Fashion.  Cookie Chanel’s haphazard and somewhat neurotic approach to investigating is painful to watch and funny simultaneously.  The nonstop chatter of her ghosts, Charlotte and Peggy, is more of a hindrance than a help, and is often distracting. It is easy to understand why Cookie isn’t completely “with it”.  At the same time she does things so profoundly stupid that they are difficu...

    Princess Fuzzypants here: You know right off the bat things are going to be quirky when the main character in a cozy, the owner of a vintage clothing store, is a ghost magnet and lives with a cat who channels her dead grandmother and paws a ouija board. As long as you can sign on for the ride, these books are fun. There is always a guest ghost who needs to find out how they were murdered and why. This time the ghost is not the victim Cookie is tr...

    4.5 StarsLIGHT SPOILERS!!!!!The Good: the pacing was better then the last entry in the series, and the conflicts between Cookie and Dylan and Ken are a lot of fun to read. I really loved that this book addressed that triangle. Even though Cookie had chosen Dylan, Ken was still in the background and I felt that the author finally addressed the tension that was between Dylan and Ken, and how Cookie reacted to that. Using Heather as a suspect was a ...

    This is the 6th entry in one of my favorite series. Ghosts, a cat, humor and a good mystery always gets my attention. Add to it the fact that the cat is possessed by Cookie's grandmother's spirit, it's a great escape from reality. Vintage clothing is Cookie's world and she is always on the lookout for clothes to sell in her vintage clothing store It's Vintage Y'all or, in this case, to costume the local production of Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. Fine, ...

    I thought this book sounded cute, but for some reason, it really didn't strike my fancy. It's a cute cozy and I loved the premise of the book. Cookie sees and talks to ghosts. The ghosts are fun and I liked the characters, but the book didn't keep my attention. It seems like there were some contradictions, but my memory could be bad. At one point, I thought Dylan knew about ALL the ghosts including Grandma Pearl, but at a different point in the b...

    I enjoy this series. This is book 6 in A Haunted Vintage Mystery series and as the title indicates there are ghosts. Cookie and her sidekick, ghost Charlotte. When they are in the basement of the local theater looking for costumes they discover another ghost dressed in vintage dress, Peggy. They agree to help Peggy find out who murdered her when there is a murder upstairs on stage. With friend Heather as the prime candidate as murderer the girls ...

    Vintage fashion and ghosts keep Cookie Chanel busy. While her shop, It's Vintage Y'all, and costuming local theatre productions keep her busy, a murder at the theatre and a new ghost looking for answers about her death rose to the top of her to-do list. Breezy tone and engaging characters make this a fun cozy to read. Recommended.Thanks to netgalley and the publisher for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an honest review.

    Another fantastic Haunted Vintage mystery!!This was so riveting I couldn't put it down. Themystery in this addition was extremely entertaining.I was so glad the ghosts were more involved andWind Song/Grandma Pearl was involved in thestory line more, also. Absolutely love the humorand interaction between the main character, Cookie,and the ghosts. Can't wait for the next mystery!!!!

    I enjoyed this Vintage cozy and thought that the story was a good one. The characters are definitely eccentric and sometimes the ghosts can get a bit annoying. I received a copy from NetGalley and this is my honest opinion.

    Cookie Chanel is helping out as a costume designer at the local theater. One night, she's in the basement when she meets a 1950s ghost named Peggy while a man is murdered upstairs. The main suspect? Cookie's friend Heather. So she has two murders to solve. I was a bit bummed because Cookie didn't spend as much time with Heather as would have been nice and Peggy's murder was solved incredibly quickly just to wrap up the end of the book. Not a horr...

    Author Rose Pressey delivers another delightful installment to her Haunted Vintage Mystery series. This book is not only full of intrigue, but shares quirky and enjoyable characters that allow the plot to unfold at a rapid pace. This series in particular is always a pleasure for me to read; they contain two of my favourite things, ghosts and mysteries. I am always eager to read the newest adventure of this series, and this one did not disappoint!...
