Book Release & Review: HAIR BRAINED : Bad Hair Day Mysteries by Nancy J. Cohen


When hairstylist Marla Vail’s best friend is hurt in a suspicious car accident, Marla assumes guardianship of her infant son. No sooner does Marla say, “Baby want a bottle?” than she’s embroiled in another murder investigation. Her husband, Detective Dalton Vail, determines the crash may not have been an accident after all. But then, who would want Tally—or Ken in the car with her—out of the way? As Marla digs deeper into her friends’ lives, she realizes she didn’t know them as well as she’d thought. Nonetheless, it’s her duty as their son’s guardian to ensure his safety, even if it means putting her own life at risk. Can she protect the baby and find the culprit before someone else ends up as roadkill?


Marla agreed to take guardianship for Luke in the event of her friends' death, but never imagined the time would come when he was an infant. She takes her promise to heart and figures out how to balance her sudden motherhood with running her business with Dalton and Brianna's help. Thankfully, there's Mrs. Phelps who was taking care of Luke when the accident occurred. Marla and Dalton are also now responsible for Tally and Ken's businesses. 

As the investigation unfolds, it becomes clear it was not an accident, but whether the target was Tally or Ken isn't clear.  More importantly, Tally still hasn't regained consciousness. The multiple plot lines, as well as Marla's own guilt and concerns regarding her friendship keep the story moving at a steady pace. As the body count rises, the tension and danger increases not only for Marla but for Luke as well.

This is the 14th in the Bad Hair Day Mystery series - they just keeps getting better.
