One thing that I love about the Bad Hair Day Mystery series by Nancy J. Cohen is that the main character helps the police in solving the cases and they actually appreciate the help. Usually in a cozy mystery the main character is an amatuer crime solver who takes on the "case" because they are closely involved or someone they love is involved and they want to clear the person's name. Also by doing this they but heads with the lead detective and seem to "get in the way" more than help. However that is not the case in the Bad Hair Day Mystery books.....
Marla is the main character and even though she owns a hair salon and day spa, she still finds time to help the local law enforcement agency with cases. How can she not.....her husband is the lead detective and usually looks to Marla for insight.
One cannot help but fall in love with Marla and her husband Dalton and even his daughter Brianna. Brianna has a way, like Marla, of getting into the cases and helps in a way only a teenager can help. This is a very close, loving, and caring family who make you want to know everything about them.
And boy does Cohen know how to tell a story !!! And the way she twists and turns things and relates people and events will have you feeling like you are sitting in the kitchen with the Vail family hashing out the details.
I highly recommend this series to readers. I especially cannot wait for the next book in this series as Trimmed to Death left you with a big secret revealed !!!
