Celebrity chefs, sabotage and murder mingle in this suspenseful yet humorous cozy mystery set in South Florida.

Hairstylist Marla Shore volunteers for Taste of the World, a fundraiser sponsored by Ocean Guard. It's a decision she soon regrets. First Chef Pierre's rum-soaked Bananas Foster goes up in flames, making her wonder if sabotage caused the incident. Her suspicions deepen as more chefs drop off the roster and Ocean Guard's attorney is murdered. Does the lawyer's death relate to an estate being managed by the group? If their gala fails, this property will fall into the hands of a mysterious heir.

Marla's friend, dashingly handsome Detective Dalton Vail, believes the culprit might be one of Ocean Guard's esteemed board members. She determines to help him untangle the clues. With a killer on the loose, Marla has a lot more to worry about than which canapés her chefs should serve. She'd better comb through the knot of suspects and catch the saboteur before he strikes again.

"Curl up with Nancy Cohen's stylishly witty and chillingly suspenseful tale of murder on the Florida coast-Hair Raiser is a cut above." Joanne Pence, author of the Angie Amalfi Mysteries
