Summary from Amazon:
When an over-the-top collection of vintage Hollywood costumes comes to Samantha Kidd’s hometown, it brings a hat box full of hype. Close friend Eddie is in charge of the exhibit but when hype turns to homicide, he turns to Samantha for help. Brimming with good intentions, she loops in the cops, but after one too many cloche calls, she’s soon in over her head. If she can tear the lid off the investigation, it might mean a feather in her fedora. And if she can’t? She might get capped.

The Brim Reaper was written by Diane Vallere. Although this was the third book in the series, and I have not read the first two, I didn't have any trouble sorting the people out right away. Some series are written so that you have to read them in order, and I was glad to find one that wasn't.
I think that Ms. Vallere has found her place in the cozy mystery home. I liked being taken behind the scenes in the retail business.
