The Mad Hatter’s Son by Helen Starbuck

Welcome to the blog tour for Annie Collins Mystery Series hosted by iRead Book Tours!

Rating: 4 out of 5.

This was a really fun mystery! Annie, our main character is one of those people who is a caring, loving person. She’s an operating room nurse, and so I think it’s just in her nature to want to help people. When her friend Libby reaches out to Annie for help about a mystery illness, Annie ends up in a startling mystery!

I really enjoyed the medical side of this story. I get really intrigued about all the details, and in this story, I felt like they were well researched and accurate. I liked the illness as a mystery, but also all the other details within the story that created the twists as the plot progressed!

Annie was an easy character to root for. She just wants to help her friend, but it becomes so much more than just a sickness. I loved that she was a nurse, not a professional in the world of solving crimes. I liked that naive aspect as she worked on solving this one.

I listened to the audio version of this book, and I really enjoyed the narrator. She has a voice that is easy to listen to, and she has wonderful character distinctions and expressions!

Now of course, I will need to learn more about Annie’s mysteries, so of course, I’m going to be reading the next one!

To Read or Not To Read:

I would recommend The Mad Hatter’s Son for readers that enjoy mysteries with a medical aspect and an untrained heroine.

The Mad Hatter’s Son is a gripping tale of love, friendship, betrayal, and unexpected twists and turns that leave you unable to pull away. Annie Collins is an OR nurse who is used to caring for others–both inside the operating room, and in her own personal life. So it isn’t a surprise when she is drawn–albeit unwillingly–into the chaos that is her long-time friend Libby Crowder’s life.
The friendship between Annie and Libby began deteriorating after Libby met the cold and wealthy Edward Matheisen, and quickly ended after she married him. It’s been four years since Annie and Libby parted ways. But now she’s back and seeking Annie’s help. With puzzling symptoms and a plea for help, Annie can’t help but wonder: Is Libby really ill or is there more to the story than what Libby is saying? Annie’s suspicions heighten when Libby’s close friend is severely beaten and dies. Faced with Libby’s own apparent suicide, Annie is beside herself with guilt and unable to stop asking questions to uncover the truth. But the answers to these questions don’t come without a price. Annie finds herself drawn into a life that has derailed, and pursuing the mystery of Libby’s illness threatens to derail her own life as well.
Friends change, love betrays, and the end results are never what you anticipate.
