Book Description

Michael Cole was my hairdresser. I was his ten o’clock. When he died in the shower, I had a hunch it was no accident.

There were plenty of people who’d want to kill him. Michael was an incredibly handsome hunk, who not only coiffed the hair of Beverly Hills’ wealthiest women, but catered to their bodies as well. Then he dropped them like so many hot curlers. He wasn’t too popular with his clients’ men either. Lots of people would breathe easier if Michael were not around. Did someone decide on a permanent solution? Was he…GROOMED FOR MURDER?

Susan Finkelstein teams up with newspaper reporter Nick Comici to investigate the mysterious death of a handsome Beverly Hills hairdresser in a racy romp through retro Los Angeles.

By Mollie
Format:Kindle Edition
Anyone who enjoys a "whodunnit" that combines humor, wit, and yester-year charm with a genuine mystery will love this one. Good writing, well defined characters and an overall fun read. Make a great day at the beach even better by downloading this one on your Kindle.

I really liked the characters, so far out LA. The suspense was good, and I was laughing out loud at times. I would read something else by the same author.

2.0 out of 5 stars Too kinky March 18, 2013
By Sheila
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Far too much gratuitous kinky sex. The story line is basically good and the writing also is good - just the content. Seems like a throw back to the 70's free love era. Even though I lived through the 70s not my thing at all.

3.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful December 6, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed reading this book, some twist and turns and slightly predictable. I got a little bored with some things, but not to the point to put it down and start up again. It was okay.

I would recommend this book for my daugter to read. I think the three stars were sufficient.

3.0 out of 5 stars Overall not bad October 14, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A beautiful, straight, male hairstylist is murdered and a children's book author solves the crime with a bit of help from a new friend. Some of the books happenings were a bit far fetched but not bad

3.0 out of 5 stars Susan Finkelstein - Time Traveler ? August 1, 2012
By Noel
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really wanted to like this a lot. I was fairly young in the 70s, but have fond memories of The Partidge Family, disco, and avacado kitchen appliances. I found a good deal of Susan's inner monologue to be better written and more witty than most of what is out there in this genre - but I just could not get past the continuity errors. In a novel the author tells us was written "decades ago" and set in 1978, the main character drinks a Diet Coke (introduced in 1982), eats Ben and Jerry's ice cream (sure, they opened one little shop in Burlington VT in 1977, but it would be YEARS before pints were available nation-wide), and the one that really bothered me : Ella being the head of an organization that raised money for the Romanian orphans. The deplorable conditions of the orphans in Romania did not come to light until the television program 20/20 did a story in 1990. With the Soviet Union intact until 1989 - it is laughable that a fictional housewife in LA (even a well-connected one) would have had any idea what was going on in Romania, much less had the means to work around the Soviet system to fundraise for them in the 70s.

Even though the author stated it had been edited there were still grammar and spelling errors. The plot and the characters were unrealistic. There was no flow to the mystery. Read more

I like this book but I am having trouble finishing it, it doesnt hold my attention for long. I guess the characters could be spiced up a little or humorous
