Mystery Review - Death of A Mad Hatter

Today I'm reviewing Death of A Mad Hatter (A Hat Shop Mystery #2) by Jenn McKinlay. 

Summary from Goodreads: Scarlett Parker and her British cousin, Vivian Tremont, are hard at work at Mim’s Whims—their ladies’ hat shop on London’s chic Portobello Road—to create hats for an Alice in Wonderland themed afternoon tea, a fund-raiser for a local children’s hospital. It seems like a wonderfully whimsical way to pass the hat, and Scarlett and Viv are delighted to outfit the Grisby family, the hosts who are hoping to raise enough money to name a new hospital wing after their patriarch.

Unfortunately, the Grisby heir will not live to see it—he’s been poisoned. When traces of the poison are found on the hat Scarlett and Viv made for him, the police become curiouser and curiouser about their involvement. Now the ladies need to don their thinking caps and find the tea party crasher who’s mad enough to kill at the drop of a hat…

More after the jump!

Review: Since I started devouring all of the British mysteries that Netflix can hold, I have become a bit of an Anglophile. So of course I love all things London! I also love the tension between Scarlett and Harrison =) This book features a garden party with an Alice in Wonderland theme which of course Mim's Whims are tasked with making the hats for! I really like how this series is developing so far, and I'm looking forward to reading the third in the series, At the Drop of of a Hat when it comes out later this year (2015).

Rating: 5/5 Stars
