"Best of 2021" Cozy Mystery by Suspense Magazine
Crowned Heart of Excellence Review from InD'Tale Magazine


"It's a pleasure to see a sleuthing story evolve where the protagonist is just as vested in her business, family, and community interactions as she is in her investigation. This makes for a cozy mystery powered by Marla's special blend of savvy and perceptions as a home remodel project goes seriously awry." D. Donovan, Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Review

"A charmingly funny whodunit unfolds when hairstylist and savvy sleuth Marla Vail gets a frantic call from her mother saying she found a dead body in her bathroom during a remodel. When Marla's stepfather, Reed, becomes a suspect, Marla digs deeper for clues. Now, she'll have to put all the pieces together to nail down the truth!" Woman's World Magazine
 
"Nancy Cohen weaves a magnificent mystery with hints and clues interspersed throughout for the reader to find. The suspects are varied and unique, each with a motive of their own. The reader will get close to the edge of their seat riveted by the story and eager to solve the mystery and keep Marla from harm. A fun and fascinating mystery." Cara Cieslak, InD'Tale Magazine

"Styled for Murder" is the seventeenth in Nancy J. Cohen's Bad Hair Day mystery series. It's a well-plotted cozy with likeable characters and a surprise ending fans will love! I did."  Susan Santangelo, Suspense Magazine

"Marla's complicated relationships with her family continue to be fascinating and relatable. Everyone's lives would be easier if they would just talk openly about their feelings and fears, but few are willing to open up and be that vulnerable. The discoveries that Marla makes will impact the future of her and her family, and readers will be happy to go along for the ride in this always entertaining, vibrant mystery series." Cynthia Chow, Kings River Life Magazine

5.0 out of 5 stars Complex Characters
By Lori Caswell/Dollycas on November 27, 2021
Dollycas’s Thoughts

Home renovations are murder in this latest installment of the Bad Hair Day Mystery Series. Marla Vail’s mother has a hair-raising experience when she finds a dead contractor in her remodeled shower. It turns out the man had built quite a reputation for himself, a bad one. The police have added Marla’s stepfather to the long list that may want to remove the unscrupulous individual from the earth – perm-antly. Sadly, the murder is out of Marla’s detective husband Dalton’s jurisdiction but that is not going to stop her from showering her sleuthing talents on the case, mainly because her mother won’t let her but also her stepdad Reed is hiding something. He may not have killed the man but maybe he knows who did.

Marla and Dalton are settling into their lives with the addition of a new baby to their family but both have full-time jobs and Ms. Cohen has portrayed their lives so realistically. Brianna is old enough to be of help but a baby takes over your life. Then grandma calls and throws a monkey wrench into their lives with a dead body. I knew Marla would have a hard time saying no to another murder investigation, even with her best intentions to stop getting involved but this one hits family and there is no way to say no to family. I really liked this as it really makes sense for Marla to get involved. I really had sympathy for her as she truly was burning the candle at both ends throughout the story. It is hard to find balance with a new baby in the house without the addition of a dead body.

Ms. Cohen finds a nice balance herself in Styled for Murder. She blends the daily life of her characters with a challenging mystery to solve. I did like that there was a plethora of suspects and the way Marla worked her way through them. She wasn’t able to figure things out though before more deaths occurred. Those deaths depleted her suspect list but WOW! that final twist was absolutely killer. The guilty party was a total surprise. I know I probably missed an important clue somewhere but I love when a book ends with a shocking twist.

I have read this series from the start. Marla has evolved so wonderfully over the course of those books. She was a great stepmom to Brianna after marrying Dalton but I am so happy that they now have this little bundle of joy. She made some adjustments to her sleuthing with her son Ryder in mind. Dalton also made changes. I am excited to see how this continues in future stories especially after the final chapter in this book.

Styled for Murder is filled with complex characters, has a great family feel, and a captivating mystery. Don’t let the depth of this series hold you back. This book can be read all on its own but to really get to know Marla I encourage you to read the entire series.
