Marla the hair stylist/slueth is uncanny in her ability to catch a killer. And, Nancy Cohen's use of hair salon settings to knock-off an unsuspecting victim makes a girl think twice before heading off to have her nails done! Murder by Manicure is a must read.

This is one of the worst books I've ever read. Poor character development, wafer-thin plot, bad sentence structure. I enjoy murder mysteries and chick lit, so I thought this might fit the bill. Yuck.

Beauty saloon owner Marla Shore lives and toils in Fort Lauderdale. She also works for an organization that tries to make home swimming pools safe for children because she witnessed the drowning death of a child. When it comes to pool safety, Marla will do anything, even investigating homicides involving clients.

Marla applies for a trial membership at Perfect Fit Sports Club. On the night she enrolls, a swimming pool client dies in the sports club¿s whirlpool. The post mortem toxicology reveals the victim¿s blood stream contained a strong sedative. Marla knows this woman would never risk medication just prior to entering the heated whirlpool. Unable to resist, Marla interferes with the official police investigation to quickly learn that many members and the staff prefer having the victim dead.

Nancy J Cohen has written another romantic mystery starring delightful characters from her previous novels in this lighthearted amateur sleuth series. The story line is fun due to Marla¿s machinations. However, the plot works because so many suspects exist, which leads to readers making MURDER BY MANICURE a one sitting experience to learn who did it and why.

Audio version This is the third book in this series, but it's the first one I've read/listened to. It can be read alone but I wouldn't recommend it, at least if you're like me I get frustrated when things are mentioned from the other books it can be confusing. I can't wait for more of this, I want to say more about this story but I absolutely hate spoilers. The narrator brings the story to life. Reasons I enjoyed this audio book: Wonderful characters, Page-turner, Great world building, Unpredictable, Original, Easy-to-listen, Entertaining, Action-packed, Funny. Bookshelves/tags: contemporary, humorous, mystery, series, suspense. This Audio book was given to me at my request from the publisher, author or narrator and I provided this unbiased voluntary review.
