Publisher's Summary

All Pyper Rayne - medium and coffee shop owner - wanted was the perfect vintage dress. What she got was a dead shop owner and a sexy ghost who's suddenly everywhere - at her shop, in her car, and even lounging in her bedroom. But he's not just any ghost. He's a witch and able to appear in solid form...sometimes. If only he'd stop disappearing on her.

And Pyper needs his help. When she becomes target numero uno and the prime suspect in the shop owner's death, it appears her ghost holds the key to solving the murder. In between stolen kisses, Pyper will need to get to the bottom of all of his secrets if she wants to stay alive and out of jail...and maybe finally get that date he keeps promising her.

    Sci-fi, detective, cozy. Only give 5s to those books I think stand above the rest. 4 is a good solid book. 3 is average, nothing special.

    "Cute. Standard fare"

    Another fun little paranormal. Nothing special, but a nice few hours of story. If you like these it's worth a listen.

    "Great Story!"

    This is the first book in the Pyper Rayne series and it's terrific! The narrator has done a great job bringing the characters and story to life. I'm looking forward to listening to the other books in this series.

    I was provided a copy of this audiobook by the author, I have voluntarily submitted my review.

    "Witches, Ghosts and Mediums"

    This review is for both the ebook and the audiobook. I have both and listened while driving and read when at home.
    I just loved this book. To begin with, I wasn't sure how it could ever measure up to the Jade Calhoun series that it's a spin off from. But how could I ever expect anything but excellence from Deanna? She is truly talented. The characters are so lovable, except for that awful female cop! Jade and Kane are also in the book a lot. I can't wait to read the next one. This kept me guessing until the end. I wasn't sure who the killer was. In fact, I hate to admit it but I cheated a little by peeking at the end. lol I know, I'm bad. The audiobook is to die for. The narrator makes it come alive even more. I want to live in this world and be part of it. This is a wonderful read and an even better listen to! You won't be sorry if you purchase both.

    "Ghostly Murder Mystery yet Fun!"

    I'd forgotten how much fun Deanna Chase's books were. This one is a Murder Mystery that involves, ghosts, witches, demon hunters and many more characters. The atmosphere in New Orleans is just the place for this adventure. While there is romance it isn't steamy sex; which in my opinion makes it all the better. It's all about the plot, characters and adventure with a little romance thrown in. So don't expect half the book to be a detailed sex romp...just isn't happening. Instead, look forward to the adventures of Pyper Rayne and her sexy ghostly friend Julius. Wish, like I did, that they find a way to get together.

    Ida Mae (another ghost) keeps things hopping in Pyper's bakery by mischievously changing the menu and decorating the sweets in some sexually suggestive ways. Great fun to be had all through this book.

    "Ok"

    It was a pretty good book but not overly exciting, entertaining or quirky. Not a bad book just not a standout in any way.

    "1st audible book"

    I read this book before I tried audible for the 1st time. it was even better the second time. A thriller every step of the way. I love the Jade Calhoun series, but the Pyper Raines series has a humorous and snarky undertone about it. I can't wait to listen to book #2!

    Story
    "Cute new series with a promise of romance!"

    This is a cute little story in New Orleans, Louisiana . Pyper is a medium who can hear ghost. which begans the story. Pyper has a close "family" of witch friends who come to her rescue after she wrongly accused of murder and arson.
    Julius, a sexy ghost, who Pyper met before and now becomes involved in this story. The mystery is ok.
    After reading this I discovered this is a spin-off book from the Jade Calhoun series. What made this so good was the relationship between the people that is established in the Calhoun series. This was significant for me because these witches meant business. They are powerful. Since their actions is predicted upon their friendship I am going to read the Calhoun series.

    Story
    "Ghostly friends, coffee and murder...sign me up!!"
    If you could sum up Spirits, Stilettos, and a Silver Bustier in three words, what would they be?

    Spirits, Coffee, Murder


    What did you like best about this story?

    The interaction between Pyper and her friends, both solid and ghostly.


    Have you listened to any of Gabra Zackman’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have heard a couple of other performances by Gabra and I think she is wonderful. She is very versatile, and has great pronunciation. She also knows how to keep good rhythm while narrating.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Not just one. I was moved by the power of her friendships and how close she is with them, more like family.


    Any additional comments?

    I highly recommend this book. I am starting the next book in the series tomorrow.

    "Great New Series!"
    Any additional comments?

    This is a great book; this is the first book in the Piper Rayne series written by Deanna Chase and narrated by Gabra Zackman. This is a spinoff of the Jade Calhoun Series and I was happy to see Jade and some of the other characters in this book. Pyper owns a coffee shop and getting ready for her first art exhibit and she can also see ghosts. She is looking for that perfect dress to wear for her exhibit when the owner of the dress shop ends up dead. Julius is a sexy ghost that Pyper met last Halloween and when he shows up and tells her that the killer is coming after her next. This book has romance, humor, and magic.

    The narrator Gabra Zackman did a wonderful job with this book. She did a great job with the different voices of each character in this book. It was very easy to listen to and I didn’t want to stop listening until the end.

    If you are looking for a great book with well-developed characters then you need to listen to this book. I am looking forward to listening to the next book by this author and narrator.
