What the Hatmaker Heard
Expected publication: July 28th 2020 by Lyrical Underground
When a groom gets murdered, Louisiana hat maker Missy DuBois must look behind a veil of secrets on a former sugar plantation . . .
Bride-to-be Lorelei Honeycutt is brimming with excitement over the elaborate headpiece Missy has created for her wedding but fears she won't be able to maintain her balance when she walks down the aisle. She’s asked Missy to assist her during the rehearsal at Honeycutt Hall, a once grand sugar plantation now used as the family's home. Missy’s trying to keep a cool head herself, as her own wedding is coming up in three short weeks on the Riverboat Queen. But after the rehearsal, she overhears the bride and groom quarreling. The next morning, Wesley Carmichael is missing. After searching the house and grounds, Missy discovers the groom lying at the bottom of an old, unused sugar silo—and now it's up to the mystery-solving milliner to find an unbalanced killer . . .
This is the sixth book in the Missy DuBois mystery series by Sandra Bretting.
Missy travels with the bride to a fancy plantation where her wedding is to be held. Not longer after they arrive, the groom ends up dead, they find that he has a gambling problem and there are so many suspects I can’t keep track of them all.
This is one of those mysteries that keeps going round and round until you feel dizzy and can’t decide whodunit. I was flummoxed the entire time.. The author really fooled me.
Loved the storyline and characters. I sometimes wonder how Missy even gets involved in these deaths.. It is like she is a death magnet or something.
Keep reading until the end so you get to witness the wonderful wedding between Ambrose and Missy. So sweet! Definitely a series I want to continue on with.
If you want to read a good cozy mystery, definitely check this one out. You won’t be disappointed.
