Laura Bradley's cozy featuring stylist Reyn Martin Sawyer is a cut above. Reyn is intriguing, sassy and frequently in trouble. And with friends like Trudy, how can she go wrong? Easily identifiable killer but zanny characters make it a worthwhile read. 1st in the series.
I had a hard time reading this book. There are many timeline issues that can lead a regular mystery reader to drink or book burning. The editor of this book should be ashamed of theirself for missing the glaringly obvious timeline errors. The storyline was OK in places and rushed everywhere else. Not to mention way too focused on the status of the main character's underwear. I will not be giving this author a second chance.
Cute mystery about a hairstylist trying to solve the murder of her friend and mentor, Ricardo. When he calls in the middle of the night with a brush pick in his back and a cryptic message of "the proof is in the pudding" Reyn is dumbfounded but soon learns she is at the very top of the suspect list for murder. With a little help from her eccentric friend Trudy, a visit to an oddball psychic, sneaking into transvestite clubs, and plenty of gossip from the local salon patrons, Reyn finally uncovers the truth aboutr friends' dark and many secrets.
I do however agree with some of the other reviews about it being choppy at times, overall it was a good read, but there were some unanswered questions in the end, so i will be reading the next one to find out.
