This is A Hat Shop Mystery series, I think it was number two but I read it first.

It was a great easy read murder mystery. The characters are well developed and lovable. There are four interesting characters that work at Mim’s Whims, a ladies’ hat shop in London. Come meet them as they find themselves right in the middle of a murder, the investigation of it, the panicked aftermath and shocking revelation of who done it!

There is a lot of flirting and romance, main character internal struggles in which you get to know her thoughts and how they differ from what she actually says.

The dialogue is humorous and witty in all the right places. It is a very cute fast read, definitely worth putting on your list to read.

I plan on getting number one of this series because I can tell a lot of the characters will be the same in the series. I just must know more about these funny, sweet, sassy and lovable characters 💕

The audiobook narrator was overly dramatic (even the chapter numbers are read with emotion!) but the material she's working with is also at fault. I confess I am not a fan of cozy mysteries and, while the plot in this one is compelling enough, the characters and their actions never feel real. I suppose that's the escapist appeal of cozies. McKinlay's novels are probably on par with the more skillfully written cozies and I might have liked this better in print than on audio.

This would make a perfect Hallmark worthy rom com movie of the week if not for the fact that the author expertly weaves a few deeper issues into the plot that make it even more engaging and hard to put down. Starting over and leaving your past behind isn’t as easy as Em would like it to have been but she’s embracing the opportunity to finally live and it suits her well. Her banter with Keir and her relationship with his mother is just icing on the cake and as an added bonus we get updates on Sam and Ben!… (més)

This was a terrific installment of the Cupcake Bakery series! Unlike Mel, I enjoy my class reunions and activities. Thankfully, none of mine have come with a murder!!

This series has great characters that are well-rounded and while some have their own quirks, everyone's mostly likeable. This particular book introduced us to some of the people in Mel's past and was well-done. Even the new characters had plausible back stories on how they fit into Mel's life in high school.

I did figure out who the villain was before the end, but not much before the end. And I like how some of the new characters ended up being great people and some relationships changed for the better.… (més)
