Sassy salon owner Marla Shore is giving grumpy Mrs. Kravitz a perm when her client dies in the shampoo chair. If that isn't enough to give her a bad hair day, handsome Detective Vail suspects Marla of poisoning the woman's coffee creamer. Figuring she'd better expose the real killer before the next victim frizzes out, Marla sets on the trail of a wave of wacky suspects. Her theory regarding whodunit gels only after she looks for the culprit closer to home.

Marla Shore is a beauty salon owner with a slight problem. A well-known, respected but not necessarily liked client who just died in her perm chair. Like several other people in the community, Marla has motive AND opportunity. It does not help that poison is usually the choice of women too!
Detective Vail, handsome and smart and slowly stealing the heart of Marla, has to solve the crime. It’s not looking good for Marla at all. Marla is not Sherlock Holmes or Jessica Fletcher but she has to prove her innocence and find the real murderer or she may not only lose the handsome Vail but her life as well!
A nice cozy mystery with twists and excitement. There are a couple of moments where I thought Marla should have had a “duh” moment or two but she didn’t. I thought the other characters were fun and the type of friends everyone needs. I thought Nancy Cohen did a masterful job of creating a likable set of characters and mystery. Not one I would have thought of myself and I love cozy mysteries!
Mary Ann Jacobs performed very well. I enjoyed her voice and the excitement she interjected into the book. She wore the character of Marla very well. She helped bring the characters to life as well as the story with her voice.
I hope Cohen submits more books – this one was very good.
