Love this book! Full of funky characters, but realistic enough to be believeable. Crime invades a milliner's shop and to defend herself, Brenda has to find the thief! Someone steals her self-designed hats for a society wedding, and then she finds her dress-designer friend Carla, who designed the bride's dress, dead!! Funny and a great cozy read!
A good first book with a protagonist who is a milliner--a subject I previously knew nothing about. I like the main character and the ones who will probably be recurring are quite diverse and interesting too.
First in the Brenda Midnight series. Brenda is a hatmaker/designer with her own shop in Greenwich Village. The store does require a lot of suspension of disbelief, but it's a good start to the series, and I will be reading more.
This is the first in a great little cozy mystery.
Fun light read-this is the first time I've read a book about a millinery!!
