Read A Review:

Hairstylist Marla Shore finds her rival, Carolyn Sutton, dead in the meter room in back of their strip mall.  Her boyfriend, Detective Vail who is a hunk, asks Marla for her help.  He feels people will talk to her about this better than they will to him.  She is a hairstylist, and they know her.  Usually he’s telling her to not investigate, so she jumps at the chance to help. 

She’s also trying to set her mom up with Sam from the hardware store.  Marla doesn’t like Roger, her mom’s boyfriend.  Since he’s out of town, she works hard to bring her mom and Sam together. 

Marla talks to Carolyn’s psychic and is told some information about her own family that concerns her.  She talks to Carolyn’s bingo partner.  Marla and her best friend end up visiting a nearby town and meeting with some psychics to gain more information.  

Instead of clearing up the details, the waters just get muddier.  Plus, a hurricane is bearing down on Florida.  Can Marla uncover the truth about Marla’s death, as well as some other issues that have come out of her death, as well as keep her own salon working, and keep herself and those important to her safe and healthy? 

Things with Vail are heating up, and she has to come to terms with her feelings for him and his daughter.  Is she ready to make things more permanent? 

I always enjoy books in this series.  Marla is a great character.  Her salon business brings her in touch with so many people.  She is always able to get the dirt that Vail cannot get.  The relationship between Marla and Vail is wonderful too.  I can’t wait to read the next book and see what happens to them. 

I highly recommend this book.
