    2. Jenn McKinlay appeases my inner Anglophile with her newest addition to her Hat Shop Mystery series with Death of a Mad Hatter Added to the mix this time around is the whimsical theme of Alice in Wonderland tea party thrown by the wealthy Grisby family for a new local hospital wing The cousins Scarlett and Viv are put in charge of creating hats in the theme of Alice The perfect afternoon tea is ruined when the Grisby heir is found dead having been poisoned with the Mad Hatter hat having traces ov [...]

    5. Death And the Mad Hatter is the second book in the A Hat Shop Mystery series.As always, another great book from Jenn McKinlay.Scarlett and Viv have been engaged by Dottie Grisby to provide hats for her and her family for a tea she is planning in honor of her late husband The tea will have a Alice In Wonderland theme and the hat will carry out that theme I think that this family could easily be referred to as, dysfunctional Dottie, ever since her husband moved to Italy to live with his mistress, [...]

    6. I liked the setting of an Alice in Wonderland party Love the secondary characters of Andre and Nick So far, a fun series.

    7. I know I have said probably once or twice that Ms McKinlay is one helluva cozy writer With this one she proves that point yet again And best of all There s no sign of a triangle in this one YAAAAYYY Usually I m not terribly crazy about British mysteries Don t know why, they just usually don t hold my interest that well I haven t had that problem with these books All the wonderfully drawn main characters are back for this one Love them all, even if Scarlett can be awfully childish at times This w [...]

    8. Scarlett Parker and Vivian have kept their hat shop going for two months since the first book, Cloche and Dagger when the wealthy Grisby family walks in to get hats made for their Alice in Wonderland party in Death of a Mad Hatter The family has recently lost the patriarch, Jeffery, who left his family 30 years earlier to live with his mistress in Italy, leaving a son and three daughters and a wife who has never been right in her mind since being abandoned by her husband In fact, Dottie thinks t [...]

    10. I love the comical banter of this quirky extended hatter family The characters are developing nicely, the storyline is consistent Looking forward to listening to the next one.

    11. I got a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange of an honest review Scarlett Parker and the ladies from Mim s Whims is back in another exciting installment This time the ladies are hard at work to create hats for an Alice in Wonderland themed afternoon tea party that was also a fund raised for the local children s hospital hosted by a very wealthy family The girls are very excited about the whimsical project, until they meet the family members of the Grisby Family.But when the Grisby he [...]

    12. I generally like British mysteries a lot, which is why I read this one Clearly it s my mistake almost all readers have liked it, and I found it a chore to get through I should have picked better, I guess.I can t think of anything I liked about this book The characters are cartoons, the prose is smarmy and cloying, the dialogues are silly, and the characters are vapid concerned with what they are wearing than what they are saying There are a great many lines clearly intended to be witty which ju [...]

    13. Enjoyed this second entry in the series There are just enough references to London locations and British colloquialisms Like how Scarlett s effort to understand British sayings explains it to US readers as well McKinlay is an excellent writer there is just enough in this book just enough description to place you there, just enough suspects, just enough motives She doesn t over explain motivations or actions but let s the story flow Love all of the recurring characters and their interactions with [...]

    14. I really enjoyed Death of a Mad Hatter , probably a little than the first book in the series Scarlet sounds a bit whiny and immature at times but that didn t spoil the fun for me I also found the plot to be well thought of and I was surprised at the murderer s identity Jenn McKinlay s hat shop mystery series has the added bonus of taking me back to London s exquisite atmosphere Her writing talent really shines in this series

    15. a hat maker and her cousin create hats for a specfic tea party A death occurs and suddeningly questions arise It was a very good read Enjoyed it.

    16. Book two was still engaging I enjoy the setting, the plots the author comes up with and especially the supporting characters, who I find delightful Scarlett is your typical cozy heroine She is sometimes intelligent, spunky and sensible in dealing with the murders that inevitably happen around her other times she s stubborn, foolish and insistent on doing things that put her at risk I mostly like her Her sense of humour is similarly sarcastic to mine, and she really cares deeply about the people [...]

    17. While on my book break from my blog I took a break from mysteries and found I missed reading them and and while on my search after much thought and debate with myself I wanted a mystery that was set in England because I always wanted to go there and I looked no further that Jenn McKinlay s Hat Shop mysteries I had read the first one, Cloche and Dagger and enjoyed it so off to the library I went to get Death of a Mad Hatter The Grisby s are quite the family, a typical and highly disfunctional o [...]

    19. I m just mad for Jenn McKinlay s Hat Shop mysteries Her latest, Death of a Mad Hatter, has a wonderfully odd cast of characters, lots of humor, as much sexual tension as Moonlighting, and an Alice in Wonderland tea party Add in the London setting, and it doesn t get any better It s just fun.When the Grisby family shows up at Mim s Whims, the hat shop that cousins Scarlett Parker and Vivian Tremont inherited from their grandmother, it s obvious it won t be easy to accommodate them Dotty Grisby li [...]

    20. This series is supposed to be a mystery with humorous elements One of the running gags was the main character, an American named Scarlet, doing bad puns and the others not laughing and doing their own and then laughing uproariously Unfortunately none of the puns were funny Also, I did not like the main character Her entire role seemed to be, telling us she is a people person evidence of which I did not find and stumbling upon bodies and solutions as there is no thinking or drawing of conclusion [...]

    21. I was very eagerly anticipating the release of the 2nd Hat Shop mystery by Jenn McKinlay I can t get enough of her books Four a year doesn t seem like enough if you count the Josie Bell series In this second book, Scarlett and her cousin Viv have been asked to design hats for an Alice in Wonderland themed tea party for some pretty crazy and deplorable people The mystery itself was complex but easy to follow if you can understand that There have been a few mysteries I ve read lately where the mys [...]

    22. I really enjoy this series so much I adore Scarlett and all her impulsiveness and crazy American ness and I love that Viv is not far behind, even as she tries to temper Scarlett down This story was very twisted and weird I have never understood the whole eldest son inherits and the rest of the family can go hang thing it seems so cruel and unfeeling And this family was a bunch of total whack job psychopaths on top of it Add a twisted bizarro murder and you have quite the story It is no wonder th [...]

    23. Death of a Mad Hatter is the second book in Jenn McKinlay s Hat Shop Mystery series Scarlett and Viv are back running the hat shop their grandmother left them Mim s Whims has been hired to create the hats for a well to do family for a tea they are hosting to raise money for a hospital wing to be named after the recently deceased patriarch The tea will be an Alice in Wonderland theme, hence the Mad Hatter of the title I am a sucker for this type of mystery They have fun characters, and a mystery [...]

    25. Death of a Mad Hatter is the second in the Hat Shop Mystery series from Jenn McKinlay I love the setting of this series, an inherited hat shop in London I found the mystery interesting and most of the suspect characters were well drawn Scarlett is drawn into the mystery when it appears on of the hat shop s hats may have been tainted and killed the heir to wealthy estate Scarlett wants to clear her name and the reputation of the shop.Harrison, their business manager, is dragged along for the ride [...]

    26. As with all Ms McKinlay s books, I totally enjoyed this one I love Scarlett, she s intelligent, takes nothing from anybody, she has flaws like jealousy and is totally likeable Her relationship with Harrison has bickering and wordplay that had me laughing, I could definitely read of them I like that the relationship is going slow, so there is something to look forward to I can t say I m a big fan of Viv, she won t talk about her relationships but is butting into Scarlett s, and for some reason s [...]

    27. 3 1 2 starsThe plot was quite good, but it was overshadowed by the schmaltzy, almost forced, romantic tension between the MC and the token hunky guy I thought the investigation was a little far fetched, let s visit a funeral home to find clues but overall, I enjoyed it.The only big gripe I have is the dialogue and vernacular between characters I m sorry, but you can t insert things like codswallop into a person s dialogue and expect that will make them sound British And, in this book, it doesn t [...]
