Jimm Juree was a crime reporter for the Chiang Mai Daily Mail with a somewhat eccentric family. When she is forced to follow her family to a rural village on the coast of Southern Thailand, she’s convinced her career—maybe her life—is over. So when a van containing the skeletal remains of two hippies is inexplicably unearthed in a local farmer’s field, Jimm is thrilled. Shortly thereafter an abbot at a local Buddhist temple is viciously murdered.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, I already have recommended this to my mother in law who loves books with great characters.

What other book might you compare Killed at the Whim of a Hat to and why?

The book reminded me of the The #1 Ladies Detective Agency. Even though a completely different part of the world, both books take you to a place that is foreign and make you want to know the people.

Have you listened to any of Jeany Park’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Not yet!

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I laughed out loud!

Any additional comments?

Can't wait to listen to the next in this series.

In this, their first adventure, Chet and Bernie investigate the disappearance of Madison, a teenage girl who may or may not have been kidnapped, but who has definitely gotten mixed up with some very unsavory characters.
