From New York Times bestselling author Deanna Chase, the first book in the Pyper Rayne series (a spin-off of the Jade Calhoun Series).
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.
***I would like to thank Deanna Chase for providing me with “Spirits, Stilettos, and a Silver Bustier” for free, for my honest review***
Deanna Chase created a spin off series about Pyper Rayne that we first met in Jade Calhoun series. We get to see Pyper in a different light and watch what happens when spirits show up. Pyper has accepted her powers and works to be certain things are taken care of. We do get to see Ida May (she is my personal favorite ghost) and a special man in Pyper’s life. We follow alongside on Pyper’s adventure. You will be hooked just like me and can’t wait for more.
Gabra did a wonderful job getting different voices and tones while narrating. Pyper was not as husky as I would have thought. However, that didn’t change the entertainment I had listening this for my very first audio book. I was glad to hear a woman voice since it was in Pyper’s point of view. I read simultaneously while listening. I was able to pause when needed and it starts right back where it was left off. I didn’t even notice if there was a mixup in words or not, being too engrossed with the written words of Deanna spoken by Gabra.
