It’s hair today, gone tomorrow, when Marla Shore’s rival salon owner is murdered in this “charming series” set in South Florida (Library Journal). For a beautician, Carolyn Sutton sure loves to split hairs. The owner of Hairstyle Heaven has never stopped giving Marla hell for leaving and opening her own salon. She even relocated near Marla’s shop to cut in on her business. But the competition just went from fierce to deadly—when Marla finds Carolyn with her neck broken and a hank of hair missing. Things get even weirder when Carolyn’s trusted psychic takes over the salon and tells Marla that Carolyn’s spirit wants her to solve the murder. Marla’s search for the homicidal hair-puller takes her from smoky bingo parlors to a spooky town run by spiritualists to sultry Delray Beach. But she doesn’t need a crystal ball to tell her to watch her back—before the killer once again decides to take a little off the top. New York Times–bestselling author P.J. Parrish raves, “Cohen has penned another follicle-raising frolic with a wry twist of romance.” Readers of all hair colors will have more fun with this rollicking Bad Hair Day Mystery.
