Overview

Meet Marla Shore, a Florida beauty salon owner with a knack for creating dazzling 'dos-and solving mysteries...

Marla was already having a bad day, but when one of her clients dies while getting a perm in her salon, her day just can't get any worse...until the smugly competent Detective Vail accuses her of poisoning the wealthy widow's coffee creamer! Granted, Bertha Kravitz was hardly her favorite customer, but Marla could never have murdered the ornery woman. Now it's up to the savvy stylist to find out just who did.

Combing the woman's privileged world for clues, Marla soon discovers that the town is crawling with potential suspects. As the case grows more snarled, Marla becomes determined to unmask a cunning killer before she's outwitted-and dead.

"A terrific mystery debut for Nancy Cohen. Marla the beautician is a delight."
--Tamar Myers, author of Baroque and Desperate

"A keeper...I plan to reserve a permanent place on my bookshelf for this action-packed, character-driven series."
--Denis Dietz, author of Footprints In the Butter and Throw Darts At A Cheesecake

    A Promising Debut!

    Permed to Death is the first of Nancy Cohen's Bad Hair Day Mystery titles. Marla Shore, owner of the Cut 'N Dye hair salon, leaves difficult client Bertha Kravitz at the shampoo bowl with a cup of coffee as her perm rods set. Suddenly, Bertha is dead, the police are everywhere and Marla is in trouble. Old secrets, new business problems and a vindictive former husband add to Marla's problems as she finds herself the target of a creative killer. Marla is also attracted to the detective assigned to the case, yet another complication in her hectic life. So many people had reason to want Bertha dead and its hard to stop with a single murder. Nancy Cohen is a former nurse and her medial training, along with a great deal of hair salon research, add to the flavor of this first mystery. I'm looking forward to getting to know Marla better!

    Great first book

    I very much enjoyed this book. It read fast and kept my interest. In fact, it read too fast. I was finished in 2 days. Can't wait to read NJC's other books.

    Fun for Some

    This is a nice book to take to the beach, where light entertainment is the fare of the day. It does not pretend to be great literature, but tells an engaging story. Of course, once again we are asked to believe in an unlikely romantic set-up, namely that a good-looking widower of two years is still available and unattatched! The love angle at times makes the book smack of a Harlequin romance, but most would probably enjoy the varied (if one-dimensional) portrayals of the cast of characters in the story.
