"Delightful, intriguing." —Carolyn Hart

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?

4 STARS This has good suspense, fun clothing, a ghost, full of humor and a cat that can spell. It makes for a good story. It is also a clean read. I did not want to put the story down. Cookie Chanel went to estate sale looking for vintage clothes for her shop and ends up with a ghost. Cookie loves vintage clothes so she opened her own shop. Charlotte Meadows was murdered. She does not know by whom. She has to stay close by Cookie. She wants Cookie to find her killer. Sugar Creek, Georgia is the setting for A Haunted Vintage Mystery. Cookie also found a stray cat that likes to spell and pick out tarot cards. She warns Cookie that danger is close by. Cookie also has a best friend who owns a shop next door. She claims she is a tarot card reader. She can't see the ghost but she believes that Charlotte is around. Cookie finds the next body. She becomes a suspect because she was seen talking to the PI. the day before his murder. The detective knows that Cookie is not telling all she knows. He is new to town too. I would love to read more from Rose Pressey in the future. I was given this ebook to read from Net Galley and Kensington Books. In return I agreed to give honest review of it.

Slow moving chick lit, a little silly, with a hint of harmless romance, and many descriptions of clothing. The ghost is likeable. A somewhat psychic cat appears out of nowhere and attaches itself to the main character. A lazy read that you don't take very seriously. Probably best enjoyed by teens. Clean read, no sex, swearing or gore.

I really enjoyed this book. I only had a problem with this book was that Charlotte would say that she didn't want to put Cookie in danger, then she would push her into it. She wants help finding her murderer but clams up when questioned about people in her life, and the det. wants Cookie to open up to him but when she says she's being followed he sort of blows her off. Now these are just irritants to me, it probably wouldn't bother most people. That being said, I loved Cookie, I think that she is strong, likeable and I love her sense of humor. I loved the interaction between Charlotte and her, it gave me a few laugh out loud moments. Her friend Heather is quirky and likeable also. The mystery was good, between Charlotte trying to find her murderer and blog threats, it keeps moving and had me guessing. I will definitely continue on with this series.

I was really wanting a nice cozy mystery so I choose If You've Got It, Flaunt It from the library homepage a few nights ago. It was an alright read, I prefer cozy mysteries that have a food focus instead of clothing focus. Cookie was a fun character though I would have loved to learn why a ghost was choosing to haunt her. That was never explained but it might be later in the series. Just looking for some good deals on clothes for her vintage clothing shop Cookie got more then she bargained for when she picked up a ghost a rummage sale. Not wanting anything to do with Charlotte the recently murdered real estate agent Cookie does her best to ignore her which does not work. Things get more chaotic when a lovely white cat decides its new favorite spot is in Cookie's clothing shop. For once it was nice to read about a believable main character in a cozy mystery, instead of being eager to solve the murder Cookie just wants to be left alone. In no way shape or form does Cookie want to snoop, ask people questions, search for clues, or even talk to Charlotte. Even though it was not my preferred style I liked If You've Got It, Haunt It enough to download the second book in the series last night.

When vintage clothing store owner Cookie Chanel (I have to admit that name is perfect for her) finds herself haunted by a ghost named Charlotte. She discovers the only way to get rid of the ghost is to solve a murder. This isn't just any ghost. It's a ghost with a keen eye for vintage fashion and a sarcastic side. Charlotte is determined to find out who killed her, and since Cookie is the only person who can see her, then Cookie is the one she'll follow until her murder is solved. I really loved the southern genteel side that so casually mixed with a dash of sarcasm and a little "who is more fashionable" competition. And there are plenty of vintage fashion and shopping tips for anyone who loves the look. The book moved a little slow for me and there were just too many wrong leads. Even though the case was solved in the end, it seemed like I had forgotten how it all started by the time we got there. Now, I was listening to the story in audiobook form, so perhaps the physical copy would have "read" faster. There were some very funny scenes that I really enjoyed, and they made the slow pace a little easier to listen to. This is much more of a sit back and relax kind of read than what I'm used to even from cozy mysteries.

Cookie is a reluctant detective. Solving mysteries and hunting for murderers is not really her idea of a good time. She just wants to live her quiet life and run her vintage clothing store. Charlotte bullies her into it, like that scene from ghost where Patrick Swayze annoys Whoopie Goldberg until she agrees to do what he wants. If you are looking for a serious, edge of your seat thrill ride of a read this is not it. If you are looking for something more light hearted and fun then definitely give the AvHaunted Vintage Mystery series a try.

I did enjoy this book but I have to admit that the plot was very simplistic and the vocabulary was on a low level. It would be great for people trying to improve reading skills and for those who want some very light relaxation reading between more difficult and thought-provoking books. Stephanue Clanahan

Title: If You've Got It, Haunt It - A Haunted Vintage Mystery Book 1 Author: Rose Pressey Published: 12-2-14 Publisher: Kensington Books Pages: 304 Genre: Mystery, Thriller & Suspense Sub Genre: Cozy Mystery; Women Sleuths, Crafts & Hobbies; Supernatural, Ghost ISBN: 9781617732492 ASIN: B00KFP7YZY Reviewer: DelAnne Reviewed For: NetGalley . Always in the outlook for new treasures for her shop, It's Vintage Y'all, Cookie goes to the Estate sale of the late Charlotte Meadows. While browsing the offerings she meets the ghostly apparition of Ms Meadows who entreats Cookie to find the person who murdered her. Plaguing her offering fashion and business advice whether asked for it or not. So begins the adventure where Cookie learns of her ability to communicate with those who have gone before us to help them resolve leftover issues. Cookies main problem is helping Charlotte solve her before the murderer sends her to join Charlotte in the afterlife. Rose Pressey has given us a cozy mystery with a quirky cast of characters that as fully developed. Even the ghostly Charlotte is a force to be reckoned with. The story is filled with multiple twist and turns, a touch of suspense and enough humor that you will finding yourself laughing out loud at the goings on in the book. This book relies on the power of the written word rather than the shock value of the hard broiled detective and police thrillers which is what I love about the cozy mystery. If You've Got It, Haunt It is part of a series, but can easily be read as a standalone. Warning- once you read one of the books in the series you will soon be wanting to read them all. A great read by a very talented writer.

Once I started on this book, I could not put it down!! The characters are so much fun, and I can't wait to read more books in this series. Cookie Chanel is visited by the ghost of Charlotte Meadows when she is shopping at Charlotte's Estate Sale after she is found dead. Charlotte is not sure who murdered her, but since Cookie can see her she decides that Cookie must find out who murdered her. With a town full of suspects Cookie gets help from her best friend Heather and her psychic cat Wind Song. Can she find out who the murderer is before she becomes a victim as well??

Fun, light, quick reading. Talks about vintage but doesn't get bogged down in it and drag out the story.
