The Best Reviews
Hairstylist Marla Shore finds her rival, Carolyn Sutton, dead in the meter room in back of their strip mall. Her boyfriend, Detective Vail who is a hunk, asks Marla for her help. He feels people will talk to her about this better than they will to him. She is a hairstylist, and they know her. Usually he's telling her to not investigate, so she jumps at the chance to help.
She's also trying to set her mom up with Sam from the hardware store. Marla doesn't like Roger, her mom's boyfriend. Since he's out of town, she works hard to bring her mom and Sam together.
Marla talks to Carolyn's psychic and is told some information about her own family that concerns her. She talks to Carolyn's bingo partner. Marla and her best friend end up visiting a nearby town and meeting with some psychics to gain more information.
Instead of clearing up the details, the waters just get muddier. Plus, a hurricane is bearing down on Florida. Can Marla uncover the truth about Marla's death, as well as some other issues that have come out of her death, as well as keep her own salon working, and keep herself and those important to her safe and healthy?
Things with Vail are heating up, and she has to come to terms with her feelings for him and his daughter. Is she ready to make things more permanent?
I always enjoy books in this series. Marla is a great character. Her salon business brings her in touch with so many people. She is always able to get the dirt that Vail cannot get. The relationship between Marla and Vail is wonderful too. I can't wait to read the next book and see what happens to them.
I highly recommend this book.
The sixth of Cohen's Bad Hair Day series featuring hairdresser/shop owner Marla Shore is just as charming and as good a murder mystery as the others.
This time the victim is Carolyn Sutton, Shore's former employer and now a rival for customers in the same strip mall.
Shore swears she'll kill Sutton if the power outage in her shop is due to the conniving ex employer. Then Shore finds Sutton dead in the electric meter [room].
Fortunately, the investigating detective is Shore's beau, so she doesn't have to worry about being considered a suspect. Instead, he asks her to use her ability to find out things to help his investigation.
Soon she's up to her elbows in suspects, for Sutton was a very nasty person with a penchant for using people and, sometimes, for blackmail.
As if sorting them all out is not enough, her personal life gets very complicated. Vail proposes and for a change, Shore is speechless.
Somehow all the questions get answered and the problems get solved, but Cohen takes Shore and the reader on a heckuva ride before they do.
