There are three books so far in this series and each one is great. I love a book that has humor, action and mystery and each one did. Read them in order and enjoy yourself.

Murder, Curlers, and Cruises is such a great and fun read. I found myself smiling and laughing out loud at Valentine's antics and mishaps aboard the rollicking Beauty Cruise. Throw in her parents, Great Aunt Tantig, Max, Phyllis, Kashi, Clive, the smoldering Jock de Marco and Detective Romero, as well as a chilling murder, and you've got a book you can't put down because you're having too much fun reading it. Valentine is a wonderful character who lets her heart lead her, and her intentions are always good. She will do anything for her friends and family and that's what I love about her. So grab your beauty bag full of useful tools just in case you find yourself investigating a murder and potential drug ring, and hop on the ship with Valentine and crew. You'll be glad you did! I received a copy of this book from the author. All thoughts and opinions are solely my own.

I was so excited to get back to Valentine and her salon employees! In this book, they go on a cruise (in case the title didn't give it away) and it's a fun, new setting for this mystery. We get to see a bit more of Valentine's mom, and meet some new characters - mostly other hairdressers who are on the cruise for a competition. One of the cruise passengers is murdered and who better to investigate than Valentine? There is plenty of Max and Phyllis in this book to provide comic relief, a steamy love triangle for a spark of romance, and Valentine getting herself into some strange predicaments. I sometimes wonder how she could make so many terrible decisions, but that just seems to be her personality - and a lot of bad luck. There are several strong suspects in this mystery, and I didn't guess the culprit until the very end, which made for an entertaining and engaging read. This is a great series and would appeal to anyone who enjoys mysteries with a bit of romance, humor, and great fashion sense! I received a copy of this book which I voluntarily read and reviewed. My comments are honest and my own.

Val and the gang are back in a new, fun adventure. They are taking a beauty cruise with a chance to win $5,000. Val's parents and her great aunt tag along too. While on the cruise, there is a murder and Val's great aunt disappears. When she could be having fun, Val is looking for a killer, looking for her aunt and bailing Max out of jail. Romero shows up on the ship just after she woke up in bed with Jock. Fun times for all.

“Everywhere you go, disaster follows.” Valentine Beaumont’s main squeeze, Romero, has a point! The salon gang and Val’s family are cruising the Bahamas—what could possibly go wrong? This addition to the Valentine Beaumont series is a laugh-out-loud hoot! From silly pranks, like Max blaming poor Phyllis for rude comments, to Val’s clumsiness and her life boat fiasco, to the “beauty fight” (think food fight with stylist tools) our favorite salon crew is in fine form! This is not your typical relaxing, fun-filled cruise! I totally love the cruise setting. But poor Val doesn’t get a whole lot of enjoyment out of it as she dives into the mysterious death of a fellow passenger, the antics of her family and staff and of course, the attentions of Jock and Romero. As usual, she is conflicted over the men; odd as she is so bold in her hunt for bad guys! Also intriguing to me is the development of Jock’s persona. He is a mystery for sure and has a real future in the series, I’m sure. And I love the silliness Val’s wacko family and staff. This is one solid cast of characters that I so enjoy spending time with. Wonder what they will be up to next?
