A fluffy mystery with romance and magic that wasn't over the top, weird, or scary. I look forward to ready additional titles.

Great - the first in the series. The supernatural elements aren't too outlandish.

I thoroughly enjoyed this 'paranormal' mystery that kept me guessing until the end 'whodunit'. Well written.

The first book in what appears to be a great new series. However, if you don't like a bit of a supernatural twist (ghost), then this book probably is not for you.
I enjoyed the plot and the characters. Looking forward to the next book.

Goodreads Summary: When her great-grandmother passes away, Harlow leaves her job as a Manhattan fashion designer and moves back to Bliss, Texas. But soon after she opens Buttons & Bows, a custom dressmaking boutique in the old farmhouse she inherited, Harlow begins to feel an inexplicable presence....

One of her first clients is her old friend Josie, who needs a gown for her upcoming wedding. But when Josie's boss turns up dead, it starts to look as if the bride-to-be may be wearing handcuffs instead of a veil. Suddenly, Josie needs a lot more from Harlow than the perfect dress. Can Harlow find the real killer-with a little help from beyond?
