Our customer reviews

I borrowed this book from my local library. Here is my honest review. Super cute! I remember picking up the first book in the series, Cloche and Dagger based on the title and really enjoyed it. I am fascinated by the British custom of hats. It's so vintage, refined, chic, classic... McKinlay has created an endearing cast of characters for this series that kept me reading and looking forward to the second book. Scarlet is not afraid to speak her mind and be who she is - really admire that! Harrison is charming (except when he's bossy) and seeing the relationship develop just a tad bit more in this book was the perfect amount of more
