Beautician by day, amateur sleuth by night; Valentine Beaumont is on the case! When one of her clients ends up dead during her appointment, Valentine decides she is going to find the killer herself. However, asking around is not only causing Romero, the sexy, strong detective to get in her way, she’s also now receiving threatening calls and notes. Asking a few harmless questions might prove to be more dangerous than she first thought! This was a fun read! The characters were enjoyable and the story had many laugh-out-loud moments. I am hooked and cannot wait to see what Valentine gets into next!

MURDER, CURLERS, AND CREAM is a thoroughly entertaining read. With zany characters, an intriguing mystery, and a heroine you'll root for from the start, this book kept me engaged from beginning to end. McFarlane's writing draws you in from the very first page, and the mystery kept me guessing until the final reveal. Perhaps the best part of the book is the author's terrific sense of humor that shines throughout the story. Anyone who enjoys mysteries with a little romance and a lot of laughs is sure to love this book. Disclosure: I won a free copy of this book in a giveaway.

Arlene McFarlane's Murder, Curlers, and Cream Murder, fire bomb, window smashing, mayhem, an anonymous threatening note, harassing phone calls, a kidnapping plus a cast of colorful, quirky, scary, dangerous supporting characters make this first book starring Valentine Beaumont, a MUST READ!!!! Valentine owns a Salon. She is trying very hard to make it a successful venture but seems to keep running into all sort of obstacles. The latest problem is when a client in found dead in the Ti Amo room when she is getting a facial. Why was the back door was found unlocked? Who would have murdered the client? Was it an inside job or did someone from the back alley come in then leave? How were there no fingerprints to help identify any viable suspects? The client was very outspoken, nasty and condescending to a lot of people plus known for her marital unfaithfulness. This makes for a ton of colorful suspects. Although Valentine is told by the handsome Detective Romero to leave the investigating to the police. She decides to check out a few things on her own. The story is captivating, unique and fresh with humorous shenanigans. It is creatively written with a well executed plot. When Valentine does volunteer work on the children's cancer unit in the local hospital, you will meet sweet but sickly children that she brings laughter and fun into their lives. A very entertaining cozy mystery. This is the first book in the Valentine Beaumont Mysteries series. Looking forward to the next book to see what adventure awaits Valentine plus how her romantic prospects progress. I volunteered to read this story. Thanks to the author for the opportunity. My opinion is my own.

Murder, Curlers and Cream by Arlene McFarlane is the first book in her Valentine Beaumont Mystery series and it really gets you going !!! I fell instantly in love with Valentine, her outfits, her employees and her life. She owns a beauty salon which has a mortgage payment coming due and one of the regular clients is found dead.....strangled by a cord while waiting in one of the treatment rooms. Even though her sister is on the police force, Valentine is not going to sit quietly looking pretty waiting for the police to find the killer. Even when she buts heads with the sexy Detective working the case, she will do whatever it takes to solve the murder and get life back into her salon. Murder, Curlers and Cream is full of interesting people that as you read you will wonder who did it and why ? Sure Portia wasn't a very nice woman but did she deserve to be murdered ? And in Valentine's shop ??? Put your beauty magazine down and pick this book up !! You will want to keep up with Valentine and Detective Romero.......
