book synopsis:
Welcome to Gowns Of The Haunted, an emporium of mystery and secrets, where even the ghosts aren’t what they seem.

Broke, lonely and desperate, Kate Hardy can’t believe her luck when a stranger inadvertently hands her a lifeline. This leads her to Gowns Of The Haunted, a mysterious, quirky emporium of fashion ranging from modern day goth outfits to vintage dresses and accessories. She’s overjoyed when Jenny, the pale and enigmatic owner of the shop, offers her a job and free accommodation in the small flat above the shop.

But, it’s not called Gowns Of The Haunted for nothing and Kate soon realises that something isn’t quite right. Strange noises, flickering lights and creepy shadows keep her awake at night and, when she learns that Jenny’s sister was recently murdered in the shop, her apprehension turns to very real, and justified, fear.

Traumatised by her night terrors, Kate seeks comfort from her new friends Jenny, Lucy, her eccentric young colleague, and Josh, the attractive customer who takes a fancy to her.

But at Gowns Of The Haunted, nothing is quite what it seems and, as her safety is increasingly threatened, Kate no longer knows who to trust; the living or the dead.
