Описание

For Scarlett Parker, part of the fun of living in London is celebrating the British holidays, and she's excited to share her first Bonfire Night with her cousin Vivian Tremont. Invited to a posh party by their friend Harrison Wentworth, Scarlett and Viv decide to promote their hat shop, Mim's Whims, by donning a few of their more outrageous creations. The hats prove to be quite the conversation starters as the girls mix and mingle with the guests-never suspecting that one of them is a killer.



It's a cold, clear night, perfect for the British tradition of tossing a straw stuffed effigy of Guy Fawkes, traitor to the crown, onto the bonfire. But instead of a straw man, they realize in the heat of the moment that the would-be Guy Fawkes is actually Harrison's office rival and he's been murdered. Before the smoke has cleared, Harrison is the Metropolitan Police's prime suspect, and Scarlett and Vivian must find the real homicidal hothead before their dear friend's life goes up in flames.

    The latest exploits of the Mim's Whims women has them going to a Guy Fawkes party at a house owned by Harry Harrison's boss. After an altercation, one of Harry Harrison's co-workers is found dead and Ginger Scarlett sets out to prove Harrison's innocence.

    I dived into this right after finishing At The Drop Of A Hat, and there was a lot to like. The plot was very well done, I don't think I ever had a firm suspect in mind, and the culprit was a surprise. With that being said, the ending was too far-fetched and improbable for me to give it 5 stars. I did like that this book revealed a little more about Harrison's and Viv's pasts. Considering what an integral part of the story they are, there hasn't been much detail on them up until now, and the characters are one-dimensional. Also a shame, since the charming characters make the series as good as it is.

    Overall, a great read and I'm already looking forward to the next in the series.

    Cousins Liv and Scarlett have been invited to attend a Guy Faulks party at the home of their friend, Harrison's boss. It should be fun and an excellent time to show off some of their new hat designs. But as usual, Scarlett and company become embroiled in a murder investigation when Harrison's arch enemy is found dead.I love this series. It is so much fun with the London setting and all the hats. I also like the relationship between Scarlett and her not-boyfriend, Harrison. The mysteries in this series are pretty good even though I really care more about the people and their relationships when I read cozies. I also read McKinlay's Library Lovers series. I like her style.

    Hats, for a change, are not the only emphasis, as a lot of the action takes place among the characters at Carson and Evers, where Harrison works. Of course, when Scarlett and Viv are invited to a fancy work party for Guy Fawkes night by Harrison, their business manager, hats are an important accessory for the gala, before someone winds up dead. A lot more of the action took place around London this time. I liked the descriptions of Scarlett trying to tail someone on the Underground, or just walking around Portobello Road. I work with a pair of cousins that make Viv and Scarlett seem even more real to me. From their sibling bickering, interactions and reactions, I can attest that McKinlay has really nailed that close cousin relationship. Nick, Andre and Fee round out the cast of regular appearing characters and are charming and useful as always.

    A Guy Fawkes Day party is the scene of a murder and our heroines, American Scarlett Parker and her British cousin Viv Tremont, are on hand. In fact, their childhood friend Harrison Wentworth is top of the suspect list. It seems that the victim, Winthrop Dashavoy, accosted Scarlett and Harrison came to her rescue (by punching Win in the face). For some reason, the cops think that Harrison could be a murderer. Plus the Win and Harrison were business, and perhaps romantic, rivals. Scarlett and Viv and all their friends and associates agree that Harrison could not have done the deed.Copy Cap Murder is fourth is this “Hat Shop Mystery” series by prolific and popular author Jenn McKinley. I’ve read most of her books and consider her on my short list of favorite authors. Copy Cap Murder doesn’t disappoint.

    Although she gets homesick from time to time, Scarlett Parker has settled in quite nicely in London at Mim’s Whims, the hat shop she and her cousin Vivian Tremont inherited from their grandmother. Scarlett is excited to celebrate her first bonfire in England but less than thrilled when a dead body turns up and her close friend Harrison Wentworth is the chief suspect in the murder. Scarlett and Vivian set out to clear Harrison's name but they need to be careful or one or both of them may be the next murder victim.“Copy Cap Murder” is the fourth book In Jenn McKinlay's Hat Shop cozy mystery series - a series that has gone from being somewhat lightweight to a nice satisfying complexly plotted series. The series has gotten stronger with each book and this is the best in the series so far. I love the characters – Scarlett, Harrison, (I love the relationship between Scarlett and Harrison), Vivian, Fee, Nick, and Andre. I also love the London setting and hat shop itself. The mystery is extremely well plotted with more than a few twists and turns and red herrings - I had my mouth open in shock more than once towards the end of the book. This is my favorite type of mystery where, after you have finished reading it, you go back through the book to find all the cleverly placed clues that you missed the first time you read it!“Copy Cap Murder” is a nicely done cozy mystery.
