  • Another marvelous mystery with Marla

    Today is pub day for Easter Hair Hunt! Yay! If you, like me, are a long-time fan of Nancy J. Cohen and her terrific Bad Hair Day Mystery series (or anything this author has written, for that matter) then you will have been eagerly awaiting this book, the sixteenth in the series. And let me tell you right up front, you will not be disappointed. Easter Hair Hunt is the best one yet. I know I say that with every release, but with every release it’s true. Is it because the plot and mystery are that much more engaging, or the phrasing seems that much more real, or because Marla’s character has grown with each book into someone you’d really like to have as a friend, or is it just the way author Cohen magically combines all these elements into a story you cannot put down and will enjoy reading on every page? Whatever it is, it works. When Easter Hair Hunt begins, there’s a lot going on in the background. Marla is seven months pregnant. She and husband homicide detective Dalton Vail are expecting their first child. Although she still has concerns and fears, Marla is really looking forward to having a baby and being a mother. But it might just cut into this amateur sleuthing she’s so good at. And a side note: Marla is already a mother, and a good one. She’s worked hard for the positive relationship she has with her stepdaughter Brianna, who’s going off to college soon. Life is going to be different in the Vail household in the future for sure. Marla is to meet a client and friend, Blinky, at an Easter gala at an historic estate. But someone is murdered and the client is missing. Is she the murderer? Has she been murdered also? Marla might take it a bit easier because of the baby, but she is determined to find out what has happened to Blinky and who was responsible. There are many clues – so many characters seem to be hiding something that you’ll be guessing right until the end – and will be pleased and surprised with the ending. As always in a Bad Hair Day book, Nancy J. Cohen treats us to a bit more – a deep dive into the history of some aspect of the case or something particular to a location Marla visits while investigating the crime. It’s just enough. Not too much to seem like a lecture or history lesson but enough to pique your interest and keep you entertained, and it often helps Marla to solve the case. This time it’s stamps, and Faberge eggs, and the dreaded Love Bugs on the Florida highways. And there are recipes! (Not for the Love Bugs, of course!) Easter Hair Hunt is a book you will enjoy and should definitely read. It works wonderfully as a standalone with no gaps left wondering about any character, but to get the full reading pleasure experience you should go back and read from the start. Hairdresser and salon owner Marla’s growth is amazing and believable, the friends and family surrounding her are interesting with stories of their own, and each case is full of twists and turns and some genuine bad guys. Thanks to author Nancy J. Cohen for providing an advance copy of Easter Hair Hunt. I was not required to write a review and all opinions are my own. I thoroughly, thoroughly enjoyed it and highly recommend it.

  • I just love this series.

    I just love this series. Marla and Dalton are investigating another case together. Marla is looking for her friend and Dalton is trying to solve two murders. They must be connected. As she gets ready for her son's birth and her mother's wedding, she tries to make time to solve the mystery of her friend's disappearance, an ongoing theft, her work and getting the baby's room ready. She really needs to find some time to relax. I like how Dalton includes his wife and daughter in his investigations.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Fun, Easter mystery

    Easter Hair Hunt, Marla seems to keep finding bodies - despite being seven months pregnant. I love the characters in the Bad Hair Day Mysteries. They are well developed and interesting. There are always too many suspects and too many motives, but I love it when I do not figure it out! This book was interesting, fast paced and enjoyable.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Marla and Dalton solve another interesting mystery

    I am a fan of The Bad Hair Day Mysteries and was quite happy when this story proved to be another great addition to the series. Nancy Cohen did a lot of research into collectibles in order to write this book and make it believable and realistic. The plot of this story was so interesting and even though I guessed some of what was going on, I was invested in the story to figure out all the details. The characters were varied and even the secondary ones were well developed. I love how much Marla has grown and changed throughout this series. Her relationship with Dalton and his daughter, Brianna is also very realistic which has me caring about the characters. This story has some changes going on in Marla's life. She is seven months pregnant and her mother is getting married and moving away. This has Marla concerned, and taking care while doing her investigating. I love that she does not put herself in danger, but always keeps Dalton, not only her husband, but Police detective, apprised of whatever she is doing. Of course, Marla discovers the dead body and the disappearance of her friend at the beginning of the book, which is reason enough for her to investigate. Because she uses Dalton as her reason for investigating, people seem to open up to her and answer questions. While reading this book, I learned something about Faberge eggs, Stamp Collecting and even swords and weapons. All was very interesting. When the conclusion came, some was expected and some was not, so overall, I was very satisfied with the ending. If you have not read any books from this series, I recommend you do. I have not read them all, so can say you don't have to read them in order, but I have been going back and picking them up here and there and have had no problems. Each mystery is self-contained and well written. I definitely recommend them to mystery lovers.

    Thanks for your feedback!
