The Bad Hair Day Mysteries are a series of stories centering around hairstylist Marla Shore. During her sleuthing, she meets and falls in love with Detective Dalton Vail. The budding, then full blown romance of Marla and Dalton leave you wanting to read more of their adventures. Nancy J. Cohen has a great way of introducing her characters and, while you're reading the stories, she makes you feel like you're watching a good movie unfold.Was this review helpful?

What a hoot of fun and mystery
Marla Shore's up to her old tricks, putting herself on the line. Why she'd want to clear her ex-husband of murder is beyond me, but then again, she's nicer than most people. Going under cover is srisky, and what she does with the matriarch is nothing short of brilliance. Marla knows how to take all the clues, put them into a food processor, and puree them into the right combination to solve a hienous crime involving a myriad of evil suspects. The twists are surprising, and when you put the book down, you will kick yourself for not seeing through their facades earlier.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

upbeat amateur sleuth
Stanley Kauffman comes down to breakfast only to see his trophy wife lying on the floor, bleeding from a wound to her chest. When the police arrive, they declare her dead and arrest him. He calls his ex-wife, hairdresser Marla Shore, to meet him at the jail and asks her help in clearing him of the charges. He promises her that if she will, he will sell his share of the property they jointly own at a decent price. Marla agrees because she wants the property and because she believes Stanley would never physically harm a woman. Marla goes undercover at the compound of Stanley¿s in-laws by becoming a nurse¿s aid to the matriarch of the family. She discovers that almost everyone in the household had a motive to murder Stanley¿s wife and further investigation with her boyfriend Detective Dalton Vail turns up even-more suspects. If Marla isn¿t careful, the perpetrator will try to kill her to stop her from revealing what she figured out about her ex-husband¿s wife¿s death. Anyone who reads BODY WAVE will come away thinking it is an upbeat amateur sleuth mystery populated by a host of eccentric characters. The heroine is a bold strong woman who is not afraid to get in a person¿s face when she thinks she is right. Nancy J. Cohen is a talented writer who is famous for her complex plots and characterizations as this tale substantiates. Harriet KlausnerWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
