Spirits, Stilettos, and a Silver Bustier (Pyper Rayne Series, Book 1) by Deanna Chase

From New York Times bestselling author Deanna Chase, the first book in the Pyper Rayne 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.

Deanna Chase has done it again! Everything about this book was really great! She always does amazing things with the city of New Orleans. The characters she brings to life are fun, exciting, and very likeable. Pyper has been one of my favorites from the Jade Calhoun series, so I couldn't wait to read her story. It doesn't disappoint. Pyper has been sucked into the supernatural craziness multiple times before, but now she is supernatural herself. The story had a lot of surprising twists. It also had a lot of funny moments. I loved all the ghost stuff in this book, especially the characters. It helped add many surprises to this book, and helped give us an idea of what Pyper can do now. I love that Deanna always does an excellent job with her characters. You can't go wrong reading any of her books, especially this one. Pyper brings a whole new perspective to this world, and her abilities definitely bring all kinds of new possibilities. I think Deanna Chase has a wonderful new series with this one.

This is the first book in a spin off from the Jade Calhoun series. It focusses on Pyper and her ghost friend Julius. I absolutely loved this book. I loved all of the Jade books and was thrilled to see that they will live on through Pyper. Pyper is a fun and interesting character that we first met (in the Jade Calhoun series) when she was working in a strip club that Kane owns. She and Jade became close friends and Jade has an active role in Pyper's story. Pyper is haunted by Julius - but Julius is not your normal ghost. He has a unique role in the murder mystery that Pyper is thrust into as she learns she might be the next victim. This is a quick moving story that I recommend to fans of the genre and/or Deanna Chase. Thank you to Netgalley for providing a complementary ARC in exchange for an honest review.

Good writing style. Great characters with truly unique voices. It was an easy comfortable read that made me not want to put it down. I read 2-3 books a week and this is the best book I’ve read in months. I enjoyed every page. Thank you.

paranormal, NOLA, ghosts, supernatural, suspense, murder, friendship One of those Can't Put It Down Until I Find Out What Happens Next books. Lots of action, plot twists, and suspense, all set in one of my favorite places to be. With supportive friends both living and ghost, Pyper works to solve the murders done by a witch/serial killer and winds up in jail, fighting for her own life, and trying to sort out her relationship with a living ghost, while running her coffee shop and advance her career as a very unusual artist.

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.

Pyper Rayne leads this book. Julius also has a starring role and we get a ghost too! Ida May has a wicked sense of humor. When she was alive she was a lady of the evening.

My first introduction to Deanna Chase's writing was a few years ago with the Jade Calhoun series first book Haunted on Bourbon Street. I really enjoyed it, but somehow didn't read anymore. Then the opportunity came for me to read the books in her spinoff series, Pyper Rayne from the author and I was excited to try them! I wasn't disappointed. Spirits, Stilettos and a Silver Bustier is a good read all the way around! While hard to pin it to one specific category, I guess I'd call it a supernatural/paranormal almost cozy urban mystery. There's a little too much sexual innuendo to be a full-on cozy, but there's not so much that it could be considered erotica. It's playful and fun and not offensive. Ms. Chase has a clear, flowing writing style that makes the story easy to read. I finished this in two days, not because I wanted to stop reading, but because I had to go to work! The action was quickly paced which kept me absorbed until the end. The characters feel real, each having their good sides and bad - even the ghosts! This may be a spinoff series, but you won't feel lost if you haven't read the Jade Calhoun series. The author does a great job of referring to past events with enough explanation that you understand, but doesn't take away from what is happening in the present. If you enjoy witches, ghosts, magic, and a little mayhem with your mystery; then give Spirits, Stilettos and a Silver Bustier a try!

***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.

This was a great read. I loved Pyper in the Jade Calhoun series. Pyper is sassy and full of life! I enjoyed every minute of it. I can only hope the next one is as good. I can not seem to find it though. I hope I can find it soon.

Pyper's story is a great addition to an already established series! Refreshing to see another strong female character who will say what she feels and takes on the consequences
