*A Hat Shop Mystery***BY JENN McKINLAY**

**ABOUT THE BOOK:**

**ONE IN A MILLINER**

**Scarlett Parker and her British cousin, Vivian Tremont, are hard at work at Mim’s Whims—their ladies’ hat shop on London’s chic Portobello Road—to create hats for an Alice in Wonderland themed afternoon tea, a fund-raiser for a local children’s hospital. It seems like a wonderfully whimsical way to pass the hat, and Scarlett and Viv are delighted to outfit the Grisby family, the hosts who are hoping to raise enough money to name a new hospital wing after their patriarch.**

**Unfortunately, the Grisby heir will not live to see it—he’s been poisoned. When traces of the poison are found on the hat Scarlett and Viv made for him, the police become curiouser and curiouser about their involvement. Now the ladies need to don their thinking caps and find the tea party crasher who’s mad enough to kill at the drop of a hat...**

**Jenn McKinlay is what is known as a dessert-freakosaurus. She has been known to eat leftover birthday cake for breakfast, lunch and dinner and the frozen top tier of her wedding cake didn’t stand a chance of seeing its first anniversary. Luckily, her husband is more of a salt guy. Since the arrival of the hooligans (her sons), she has honed her culinary skills to include cupcakes and has baked and frosted cupcakes into the shape of cats, mice and outerspace aliens to name just a few. Writing a mystery series based upon one of her favorite food groups (cupcakes) is as enjoyable as licking the beater and she can’t wait to whip up the next one. She is the author of another mystery series under the name**

*Lucy Lawrence*and lives in Scottsdale, Arizona with her musician husband Chris, their two sons, two cats, one dog and one fish.**SOME OTHER BOOKS BY JENN McKINLAY (aka JOSIE BELL/LUCY LAWRENCE):**

I wonder what kind of poison you'd put in a hat and who would do that. I guess I'll have to read the book to find out.

Wonder why someone would want Grisby killed since he is doing a good deed by raising money for a hospital wing.
