Publisher's Summary

Cookie Chanel has a passion for fashion - and a murder mystery to solve!
Cookie Chanel has opened her own vintage clothing boutique, It's Vintage, Y'all, in the charming town of Sugar Creek, Georgia. Always on the lookout for stylish second-hand steals, she attends the estate sale of deceased socialite Charlotte Meadows. But she gets a lot more than she bargained for when Charlotte's ghost appears before her - offering fashion advice and begging Cookie to find out who murdered her. As the persistent poltergeist tags along and a possibly psychic pussycat moves into the shop, Cookie sorts through racks of suspects to see who may be hiding some skeletons in the closet. Do a clothing store owner and a disembodied socialite have a ghost of a chance of collaring a killer - or will Cookie's life be the next one hanging by a thread?

wrong narrator makes this difficult to listen to

This is a fun idea for a light, chic-lit novel. It has a lot of the right ingredients to be a charming, undemanding read. I love the aspect of the vintage clothes, which is why I bought the book. The fantasy of a vintage clothing shop and an almost instantly successful internationally read blog is enticing-unrealistic enough to be clearly fiction but delightful enough to be engrossing. The characters are the same in that they are unrealistic but delightful and charming. The problem is the reader. I feel bad about saying this, because she has a pleasant voice, knows her material and reads with enthusiasm. However, all the characters in the book are from the deep south, the book is set in the deep south, and the book is written in what I can only describe as a southern frame of mind and pattern of thought and speech. It was critical to it's success as an audio book that the reader be able to communicate that successfully. Had they chosen Peggity Price, for example, as the reader, I think I would have really enjoyed it, but this reader just wasn't up to the task. Thus, a lot of the humor is lost, and the story just doesn't flow like it should. I wasn't able to finish it because I found the interpretation so annoying. This won't bother everyone, of course, but for me it's a fatal flaw to what might have been a charming audiobook.
