To end the holiday break, I read the second in Jenn McKinlay‘s A Hat Shop Mystery series, Death of a Mad Hatter. It was a delightful who-done-it, following the red-headed American, Scarlett Parker, as she adjusts to her new life in London. When she and her cousin Viv agree to make hats for a wealthy but dysfunctional family, they find themselves witnesses to a murder.
I have read several of Ms. McKinley’s other cozy mysteries and Death of a Mad Hatter doesn’t disappoint. It has a delightful assortment of humor, culture, and suspense, with a dash of romance. But be aware that when you curl up to read this book, you might discover you’ve disappeared down a rabbit hole and ended up in Wonderland.
