Title: Copy Cap Murder
 Author: Jenn Mckinlay
Series: Book 4 Hat Shop Mystery
 Publisher: Berkley Prime Crime
 Format: Paperback
 Source: Received for Review from Publisher
 Rating: Five Stars
 Reviewed by: Tina

 A posh bonfire night party and what could be better to promote Mim's Whims, Viv's Hat Shop where she creates stylish hats for Britain's upper class. Working along side Viv is her American cousin, Scarlett. They are invited to the party by friend and investment broker for the shop, handsome and British, Harrison Wentworth. Did I mention he was handsome?

 In the British tradition of stuffing a dummy made of straw into the bonfire of Guy Fawkes, being a traitor to the crown. It is revealed that Harrison's childhood and workplace rival,Winthrop Dashavoy has been revealed instead and he is dead. In due time Harrison becomes Police inspector Simms and Franks number one suspect for Winthrop's murder.

 Scarlett being an American, tenacious red head with a firey temper is determined to find the real killer and Viv and Scarlett wonder if they are guided by their Mim's spirit as they smell her perfume in the shop. Scarlett knows Harrison could not be responsible for the murder when her heart flutters every time he is around but it's not easy when someone else is vying for his affections too. Viv is also keeping a secret Scarlett is just dying to know but Viv is not budging but she's not the only one with secrets.

 I can never wait to head to Portobello road in London,England and to Mim's Whims Hat shop with Viv and Scarlett for their latest adventure. These sleuthing cousins are a match made in heaven and much better than tea and scones. Author Jenn Mckinlay has a knack for writing character driven stories that make you want to find out what happens too them like your favorite soap opera with a murder every mystery reader craves.
