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

Review:

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

"I plan to reserve a permanent place on my bookshelf for this action-packed, character-driven series. Permed to Death is a Keeper!" -- Denise Dietz, author of Footprints in the Butter and Throw Darts At A Cheesecake

Permed to Death is propelled by strong characters set in a plot full of interesting kinks, if you'll pardon the pun. The author kept me guessing until nearly the end. As a stylist with 16 years under her belt, I can fully relate to the salon setting and must say Ms. Cohen has nailed it. I can't help myself. Although I have never been to Florida, I can capture the essence of the area through the vivid description of the scenery. Good job, Ms. Cohen, I look forward to your future books in this series, The Bad Hair Day Mysteries. -- Reviewed by April Redmon; Copyright by Under the Covers 1999
