Synopsis from Goodreads: Epiphany ‘Pip’ Bloom, would-be detective and London’s unluckiest woman, finds herself in a real costume drama when she unearths a theft at a fashion museum.
The missing dress is a proper piece of Hollywood history, worth a fortune. And as Pip investigates, she finds the museum staff all had reasons to want the garment gone. From fancy boutiques to sketchy back alleys, Pip discovers the fashion world is not all glitz and glamour as she hunts down her prize.
As if she doesn’t have enough on her plate, Pip also has her growing feelings for her housemate Tim to contend with, a family of cats to feed and her mother keeps phoning about a shipment of llamas arriving any day now from South America.
But there’s no time for distractions because Pip’s not the only one after the dress. And for the most dedicated collectors, a piece like this is worth any price – even murder…
My Review: This is such a fun cozy mystery book! It is the second book in a series but it can definitely be read as a stand alone. I haven't read the first one yet and didn't feel like I was missing too much. I loved that this cozy still had all the things that I love in a cozy mystery but was set in a big city (London). The characters were super quirky and very likeable. The writing was great and the mystery was pretty straight forward but there were still enough twists to keep things interesting. I am excited for book three and I am going to go back and read the first book now!
