Описание

London milliner Vivian Tremont and her American cousin and partner, Scarlett Parker, tip their caps to their beloved shop on Portobello Road in Notting Hill and set off for Paris, where Viv can't wait to teach a hat-making class. But she has another reason to travel to the City of Light: to find the man she impulsively eloped with years ago and have their marriage annulled.



William Graham is not only handsome and charming, but he also has a glamorous job as an insurance investigator who works with priceless pieces of art, most recently a small Renoir that has been discovered in a junk shop. But when both Will and the masterpiece suddenly disappear, it's up to the ladies from London to follow the trail of clues. They'll need to hold on to their chapeaus, however, because someone is a master in the art of deception . . .

Об авторе

A true Anglophile, New York Times bestselling author Jenn McKinlay loves all things British. In her idea of a perfect world, every day would include high tea or wearing a fabulous hat, or both. This adoration of all things U.K. inspired her to write the Hat Shop Mysteries, which are set in London, one of her most favorite cities in the world. She now gets to visit regularly—for research purposes, of course. Jenn is also the author of the Cupcake Bakery Mysteries and the Library Lover’s Mysteries.

    Viv is in Paris to teach a millinery class and Scarlett has tagged along to try to find Viv's estranged husband. Viv has decided that an annulment is in order but needs to get in touch with her spouse whom they have tracked to Paris. This husband is an art appraiser and is anxious to show Viv a recovered Renoir that had been stolen from a museum. He also wants to get back together. Mon Deux, what a mess. When the husband and the Renoir go missing, Scarlett is on the case.I just love this book. Less about hats in this one, but that is OK. McKinlay did a wonderful job of making feel like I was in Paris with them. As always, the mystery was very good and there is a nice twist. By the end of the book, all the regular characters from the series manage to make an appearance. I have heard that this is the last book in the series. It does have an nice tie-up at the end. But I can still hope for more.

    Reading this novel was very bittersweet! - Sweet as always to read as the novels in this series were my introduction to novels by Jenn McKinlay and I absolutely fell in love with the entire cast of characters! I've adored spending time w/characters Scarlet (Ginger), Viv, Fee, Harrison (Harry), and everyone we as readers met through the adventures at Mim's Whims on Portobello Road including the incredible dinner gatherings at the home of neighbors Nick Carroll and Andre Eisel. With this novel setting in the beautiful city of Paris - doubly sweet!

    However, a few days before I planned to read "Assault & Beret" I learned that this novel is the end of the A Hat Shop Mystery Series. Oh my! That added the bittersweet thoughts to the reading - I couldn't wait to follow the adventures of Scarlett and Viv in their travel to Paris but the ending came much too soon! How I'll miss all of the characters! I haven't felt this way since reading "1225 Christmas Tree Lane" (last novel of the Cedar Cove Series) by Debbie Macomber.

    London hat-maker Vivian Tremont is teaching a millinery class in Paris and has taken along her American cousin and business partner Scarlett Parker along. Certainly, they can’t get into too much trouble, right? Viv is hoping Scarlett can help her find her husband William Graham and that they can convince him to sign the papers for an annulment of their marriage. Vivian has some vague reasons for ending the relationship, which had barely gotten off the ground.Soon after beginning the search for Will, Scarlett finds him – he’s an investigator/appraiser with a high-end art insurance firm. And, after a reunion dinner, he shows Viv and Scarlett a Renoir that is involved in one of his latest cases. The painting was given to a museum, stolen from the museum, sold at a flea-market and then returned to Will’s insurance firm, which paid out on the painting years ago. Then Will and the painting turn up missing and the flea-market buyer turns up dead. Soon the girls’ male friends make the trip across the channel to help protect them. Assault and Beret is the latest in a lovely cozy series that has just the right amount of romance but not too much to put off readers who like their mysteries unadulterated, as I do.
