First in the brand-new Southern Beauty Shop mystery series

St. Elizabeth, Georgia, offers charm, Southern hospitality-and, most recently, murder. When hairdresser Grace Terhune and her mother, Violetta, gussy up all the high-society ladies attending the town meeting, they find their snobbiest client dead. The police believe the mother-daughter duo did her in. But before things get snarled beyond repair, Grace sets out to clear their names.

Baker & Taylor
When snooty Constance DuBois, after an unfortunate hair-tinting incident, threatens to close down their salon, and then is found dead, Grace and her mother Violetta stand accused of the crime, and, with a vast array of people working against them, must find a way to untangle the clues to prove their innocence. Original.

I love the mother daughter relationship in this series. After reading just the first one I grew to like Grace and her mother,the feisty Althea and the rest of the salon gang. It has a good plot,a hint of hopeful romance to come and some humor. I hope to see that there are going to be .many more books in this cozy series. A good murder mystery for cozy fans. I am rooting for a romantic connection between Grace and the hunky Det. Dillon.

Another one where I can't think of anything to say. It was fine. I wish I lived in a cozy little small town (no, I don't). Note: I did not try out the kitchen-sink skin-care recipes. Does anybody?
