Expected publication: March 30th 2021 by Kensington Publishing Corporation
After hairdresser Daisy Thorne finds her missing scissors in a customer’s back, she becomes the prime suspect in a murder...
When Ooh La La regular Mel Haverstock left the hair salon that morning, no one expected it would be her final parting. But when Daisy closes shop Saturday night, she finds her client dead as the mullet cut. Homicide is back in style in the quiet village of Edgemead in Surrey, England. But who would want to harm a hair on poor Mel’s head?
Suspicions higher than a beehive pile on Daisy when it’s revealed that she and Mel had tangled back in high school, and DNA evidence seems to color her guilty. Handsome DCI Paul McGuinness gives the hairstylist new accessories—a lovely pair of silver handcuffs. To clear her name, Daisy must highlight the real backstabber, or she’ll end up shaving heads in the prison barbershop.
This is the second book in the Daisy Thorne mystery series by Louise R. Innes.
You wouldn’t think a hair dresser series would be my thing but this one really stood out to me. The community here is one where you feel welcome and at home. I totally resonated with most all of the cast especially those in Ooh La La Salon.
The mystery of who killed Mel Haverstock has enough twists and turns to keep you interested and the interactions between characters were what sold it all to me on a silver platter. I loved the dynamic between Daisy and DCI Paul McGuinness. Definitely hoping for a love match there in the future.
Just so much to love about this series I can’t get enough.
If you like cozy mysteries, definitely check this one out. You won’t be disappointed.
