Publisher's Summary

As fashion maven Cookie Chanel tracks a murderer at the Kentucky Derby, all bets are off....

When Cookie Chanel lands a dream assignment of providing vintage hats for a high-society Kentucky Derby party, she's brimming with excitement. Leaving her mother and best friend to mind the store at It's Vintage Y'all, Cookie packs up her psychic cat and races to Kentucky. 

But before she can hang her hat, her enthusiasm is dampened when the rider of the potential Derby-winning horse is put out to pasture. Now, she's saddled with the jockey's ghost, who insists she find his killer. 

With suspects ranging from an odds-on favorite to a dark horse, Cookie may just find herself in a dead heat before the photo finish....

Shouldn’t have changed narrator...

I loved the first four books in this collection - “Haunted Vintage Mystery”. Narrator Tara Ochs spoke clearly and gave each character so much personality. She is so gifted with accents and tone of voice.
To my great disappointment, the fifth book had a new narrator, Angie Hickman, whom in my opinion had a nasal somewhat monotone voice. Worst of all, she sounded as though she were bored with what she was reading! I couldn’t get through the first chapter and requested a refund from Audible.
The stories are excellent but with an audible book so much depends on the narrator. Please, please bring Tara Ochs back!

So disappointed

I recounted audible because I was missing this light hearted series but something happened between the books 1-4 and this one. The storyline became repetitive where I felt like I kept thinking how many times are they going to tell us the cat is ##### or she can see #####.

And this narrator. Kill me NOW! She talks so slow and cannot mimic what Rosie did in the prior stories so all of the characters were off. Even on 1.75 speed I was losing patience with her voice. She butchers the men’s voices and destroys the southern drawl.

***This is very likely the first book I will return to audible for credits back.

Horrible Narrator

I couldn't even make it through the first chapter. I miss Tara Ochs! This narrator is awful.

Not much appeal

The change of narrator is jarring. Nothing wrong with Angie Hickman's narration, but after four books to get used to Tara Ochs' voicing of the characters, it's not a good thing to suddenly change to someone different.

Plus the stories themselves don't live up to the potential at the start of the series

Five books in and Cookie hasn't learned a thing.

She's still trying (and failing) to creep up on suspects to overhear them, when she's surrounded by ghosts who could do it for her and remain completely undetected, she's still failing to send a ghost ahead to check out a room before blundering in herself to get attacked, still failing to get a ghost to check outside a door before she tries to make a stealthy exit, still failing to get the ghosts to act as lookouts when she's somewhere she shouldn't be and vulnerable.

Five murders on, and she's still failing to come up with believable excuses and explanations when she's caught out or overheard talking to the ghosts.

It was old three books ago, it isn't even laughable at this stage.
