Waiting on Wednesday #59: If You've Got It, Haunt It by Rose Pressey
"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly event hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine where we spotlight upcoming releases we are eagerly anticipating.
My pick this week is If You've Got it, Haunt It by Rose Pressey. This cozy mystery is set to come out December 2, 2014 from Kensington Books. This will be book #1 in the Haunted Vintage series.
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?
The book sounds interesting and like it will have a sense of humor. It would have made good Halloween reading, but it's not being released until December. Perhaps the publisher is doing it so the series isn't associated with Halloween. I like the idea of the setting/occupation of the sleuth having to do with Vintage clothing and I'm surprised I hadn't seen one similar before.
