“Smart, entertaining, and laugh-out-loud funny!” —Liliana Hart, New York Times Bestselling Author

She’s a beautician with a plummeting reputation. Can she catch a strangler before her salon is financially frizzed out?

Valentine Beaumont is desperate to revive her dying business. Trying to recover from an infamous incident where she defended herself with a perm rod to her attacker’s privates, the last thing she needs is another scandal. So when a wealthy socialite is strangled with a steamer cord while awaiting her facial, Valentine has no choice but to start combing through clues.

Battling a sexy, hard-headed detective who can’t tell pigtails from a pompadour, Valentine is convinced he’s pursuing the wrong suspect. And despite his warning not to meddle, the gutsy stylist vows to clear her name before the killer claims another client.

Can Valentine tie up the culprit before more lives are cut short?

Murders, Curlers & Cream

Fun read! Murders, Curlers & Cream was a good mystery and kept me guessing until the end. This story has delightful characters and just enough laughs to lighten up the mystery.

Just read it

I liked it a lot. Didn't put it down characters were funny intriguing and engaging well developed but.... It took to long for the romance to develop I like that it's not explicit, but just remember you are writing for grown adult women and men.
