Library Journal Review

Vintage clothing store owner Cookie Chanel heads over to the estate sale for the late Charlotte Meadows, the biggest realtor in Sugar Creek, SC. Over the racks of classic Chanel, Dior, and Jimmy Choos, Cookie encounters Charlotte's ghost, who is intent on finding out who killed her. The suspects are numerous: her former business partner, Marie Vance; Cindy Johnson, fashionista wannabe; or Vernon Olsen, the man following Cookie all over town. Assisted by best friend, Heather, and a fluffy white Angora cat who may have otherworldly abilities, Cookie investigates, stumbling across the body of PI Edward Anderson and adding her name to the list of suspects. The delectable police detective Dylan Valentine is more than interested. VERDICT Prolific mystery author Pressey ("Haunted Renovation" series) launches a cozy alternative to Terri Garey's "Nicki Styx" series with an appealing protagonist who is as sweet as a Southern accent. The designer name-dropping and shopping tips from Cookie adds allure for shopaholics. (c) Copyright 2014. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
