Nancy J. Cohen's Home Page
Marla joins a fitness club to get in shape, but she finds a murder instead of an exercise program. To complicate matters, Detective Dalton Vail disapproves of the charade she’s playing to help a friend. She'd better polish her act, or she’ll be the next one who ends up in the dead file.
Hairstylist Marla Shore joins a fitness club to get in shape but discovers a dead body instead of an exercise routine. Jolene Myers—a client at Marla’s salon—has drowned beneath the frothing waters of the whirlpool. When Homicide Detective Dalton Vail determines Jolene's death was no accident, Marla decides to give her deductive skills a workout and help solve the case.
Jolene had few friends at the fancy athletic club. As Marla gets to know everyone, she wonders who might have targeted Jolene for a lethal soak in the hot tub. The shady pharmacist? The smarmy city councilman? Or maybe the vocal animal rights activist? The fitness club staff had no fondness for Jolene, either. How far would they go to keep their secrets? When another member turns up dead, Marla intensifies her efforts to nail the killer and wrap the case. If she fails, the next buff body on its way to the morgue might be hers.
Nancy J. Cohen files another hilarious murder mystery in Murder by Manicure, while grooming her sassy sleuth for more cases to come.
