Death at a salon conference
As if Marla Shore wasn¿t busy enough, now she¿s working for Luxor Products as a styling assistant at a local conference and her fiancé¿s parents of his dead wife are staying at her house to see whether she¿ll be a good step mom for Brianna. And her friend Georgia, who helped her get the job with Luxor, will be staying with her through the weekend conference. She hopes her work with Luxor will bring her salon more business, especially after she moves to her new location. She¿s also hoping to gain more experience and possibly travel with them in the future to other conferences. Luxor director Christine Parks isn¿t well-liked. This is quickly evident to Marla as she gets to know the staff while setting up for the conference. When Christine ends up dead from poison, Marla begins to suspect everyone and works at trying to uncover the truth. Unfortunately there is another death. Can Marla discover the identity of the killer without putting herself and others in danger? Can she get through this week with Dalton¿s ex-in-laws in her house? I really enjoy this series. Marla is such a fun character. She just can¿t keep herself from sleuthing. Dalton isn¿t the investigator in this mystery, but he still provides some needed data for Marla to unravel the mystery. I also like the Florida setting. The author has done a great job of creating the characters and plotting the story. And there are plenty of red herrings and twists so that you aren¿t sure until the killer is revealed who did it. I highly recommend this book and the whole series.Was this review helpful?

A cleverly constructed and entertaining murder mystery
Hair salon owner and stylist Marla Shore is not having an easy week. Her fiancé¿s in-laws from his dead wife are coming to town to stay in her home to check her out and insure she is right for being the stepmother of their granddaughter Brianna. She is also working for Luxor Products as an assistant hair stylist t at the Supreme Shows Conference. Marla hopes to gain experience, a better job, and an avenue to visit places she dreams of seeing.------------------- When Marla arrives at the convention center, she meets Luxor director Christine Parker, but notices that all of the employees seem openly to despise the head honcho. When an anonymous person sends Christine a drink, she takes some and soon feels ill. The next day she is dead, a victim of poison. Marla turns sleuth, but fails to uncover the culprit before another homicide occurs.------------------- Nancy J. Cohen has written a cleverly constructed and entertaining murder mystery starring a likable heroine who knows better, but cannot stop herself from sleuthing. In this case, the victim is so vile that a horde seems to have wanted her dead making motivation difficult to use as a means of weeding out the killer. PERISH BY PEDICURE is filled with hair splitting humor, unexpected nail biting twists, and a bad hair week caused by future in-laws while Marla cuts to the roots of the case.-------------- Harriet KlausnerWas this review helpful?
