Missy DuBois’s Louisiana hat studio is the destination
for Southern brides who want to make a fashion statement.

got a head for solving murders . . .
It’s not uncommon for folks to live it up a little too much

that belonged to Missy, her customers are cancelling
appointments and everyone in town seems to be turning up
their noses at her. Despite plenty of intrigue to motivate a
hatful of suspects, suspicion keeps falling squarely on
Missy. All the more reason to clear her name—or the next
veil she designs will come in a shade of black . . .
