But it seems Nell's gift won't be hidden by Oscar's efforts. Soon an up-and-coming fashion designer is seeking her out as a partner of his 1922 collection. The publicity leads to an opportunity for Nell to make hats in London for a royal wedding. There, she sees her childhood friend, Quentin, and an unexpected spark kindles between them. But thanks to her success, Oscar is determined to keep her. As her heart tugs in two directions, Nell must decide what she is willing to sacrifice for her dream, and what her dream truly is.

I absolutely loved this novel! The rich detail and the 1920s setting brought this story to life in such a exciting way!
Nell was such a fun character and her job was so amazing! I really enjoyed reading about her work at bringing hats to life for each woman who wears it! I never realized just how important it was to have a perfect hat at different functions or how how stressful it could be in making that perfect hat!
The story itself was fascinating and at times slightly heart-breaking! It was interesting to read about the different clubs/speakeasies and Nell's time in London (which I thought was unique)! All the characters in the different places helped bring the setting even more to life!
Overall I thoroughly enjoyed this fun, but sometimes stressful situations in Carlas's latest! It was a fun adventure to join Nell on as she grew and changed throughout the story! After finishing this novel it makes me want to go get a hat!
I give The Hatmaker's Heart a 5 out of 5 stars!
