The owner of clothing boutique It’s Vintage Y’all in Sugar Creek, Georgia, Cookie Chanel considered herself a connoisseur of vintage attire. She’s not the only one, in addition to writing a blog and advising television and movies, she has been asked by author Juliana McDaniel for a consultation on a book she’s writing. When their meeting takes place, it’s after Juliana’s car has crashed, and she is unexpectedly in a very deceased and ghostly form.

The owner of Vintage, Y’All clothing boutique, Cassandra “Cookie” Chanel is thrilled that Moonlight and Magnolias is filming in her town of Sugar Creek, Georgia. What is less enjoyable but not entirely surprising (considering her last experience with the supernatural) is Cookie’s encounter with the ghost of Alice Neill. Alice is the previous owner of one of the 1940s dresses Cookie provided for the movie, but to Cookie’s surprise Alice has no interest in having her own death investigated.

As the owner of the vintage clothing boutique It’s Vintage, Y’all, Cassandra “Cookie” Chanel knew that the estate sale of Charlotte Meadows would provide an ample supply of beautiful, quality fashion for her store. What soon has Cookie doubting her sanity, though, is the sudden appearance by the late Charlotte herself, decidedly dead, but also quite vocal and definitely opinionated. The self-made real estate agent knows a thing or two about persistence, and even if Cookie is the only one who can see or hear her, Charlotte’s not about to let her own murder by strangulation go unsolved.
