Allons-y to Paris for more hats and homicide from the New York Times bestselling author of Copy Cap Murder !

London milliner Vivian Tremont and her American cousin and partner, Scarlett Parker, tip their caps to their beloved shop on Portobello Road in Notting Hill and set off for Paris, where Viv can't wait to teach a hat-making class. But she has another reason to travel to the City of Light: to find the man she impulsively eloped with years ago and have their marriage annulled.

William Graham is not only handsome and charming, but he also has a glamorous job as an insurance investigator who works with priceless pieces of art, most recently a small Renoir that has been discovered in a junk shop. But when both Will and the masterpiece suddenly disappear, it's up to the ladies from London to follow the trail of clues. They'll need to hold on to their chapeaux, however, because someone is a master in the art of deception...

The strange misogyny and not so subtle gender bias is super annoying to me this time. I enjoy a good cozy mystery, but this takes me completely out of the story.

The main character Scarlet is too corny. The romantic interest/theme became too repetitive and a bit trite. It overshadowed the mystery. I had my suspicions a bit early about the outcome of the mystery. I may not read another book in this series because the characters no longer hold interest for me.
