A wedding turns deadly when hairstylist Marla Shore discovers a dead body under the cake table.

Weddings always make Marla Shore shed a tear of joy, and she’s elated to attend her friend Jill’s reception. Marla’s own nuptials are weeks away, and she’s busy following her frenetic to-do list. Her plans go awry when she discovers Jill’s matron of honor dead under the cake table, a knife embedded in her chest. Lots of folks aren’t sorry to see Torrie go, especially since the bride’s sister knew their deepest secrets. But when suspicion falls upon Jill, Marla wonders if her dear friend is truly innocent. She’d better untangle the snarl of suspects and iron out the clues before the killer highlights her as the next victim.

     
Excerpt
If these two women don’t stop arguing, one of them is bound to kill the other before the day is done. Marla Shore tucked her shears into a drawer before the leggy bride sitting in her salon chair grabbed them to stab her sister.

“Your nail polish looks like blood,” Jillian Barlow said to her sibling and matron of honor. “Why did you wear such a horrid red? It’ll clash with your dress.”

“Who cares? It’s not as if you gave us a choice with your color scheme,” Torrie Miller replied, staring into the mirror from the station on their right.

“I thought lavender gowns would go perfectly with the flowers at Orchid Isle.”

“So they will, for your bridesmaids. You made me wear plum. I don’t look good in dark colors.”

“It’s not your wedding, is it? Oh gosh, I’m going to be sick.” Bending forward, Jill clutched her stomach. Damp strands of blond hair clung to her face.

Marla picked up her blow dryer and twirled the chair around to face her client. “You’ll be fine, Jill,” she said in a patient tone. “You’re having pre-wedding jitters.”


Professional Reviews

Publisher's Weekly
“Smart, edgy dialogue and an intriguing cast of characters lift Cohen’s 10th Bad Hair Day mystery featuring South Florida hairstylist Marla Shore. When Marla looks around for the knife to cut the cake at the wedding reception of her friend Jill, she finds it stuck in the chest of the bride’s sister, matron of honor Torrie Miller, whose body is lying under the table displaying the cake. Marla winds up assisting Jill in figuring out whether Jill should sell the commercial property she held jointly with Torrie, even as clues emerge suggesting Jill is the killer. In addition, Marla must prepare for her own upcoming nuptials to her police detective fiancé. Once again, Marla shows she’s as adept at investigating murder as she is managing her hair salon.”

Kirkus Reviews
“Finding the bride’s sister’s corpse under the dessert table can ruin most of your day, as hairstylist Marla Shore discovers at her friend Jill’s wedding.…Cohen takes the amateur-sleuth-who-asks-too-many-nosy-questions formula to new depths. It’s enough to make your hair curl.”

The Island Reporter
“Mix together a sassy hairdresser with a penchant for sleuthing, a sexy detective and some eccentric friends and neighbors; stir in an unconventional murder or two, bake in the South Florida sun, and you have the makings of Nancy J. Cohen’s delicious ‘Bad Hair Day’ mystery series.”—
