Cane, aka, Nancy J. Cohen is a multi-published author who earned a master's degree in nursing from the University of California in San Francisco. After working as a clinical nurse specialist, she retired to write full-time.
A haunted hotel, a family curse, mysterious Cossacks, hidden treasure, murdered guests—what looked to be a routine family reunion is turning into a serious Bad Hair Day indeed, one that is trouble all the way down to the Dead Roots. Marla Shore thought the only tricky part of the reunion at Florida’s historic Sugar Crest Plantation Resort would be introducing her fiancé, Detective Dalton Vail, to her family, and vice versa. But that was before her Aunt Polly was found suffocated in her bed. It turns out that her family has a tangle of ties to Sugar Crest, including Aunt Polly’s father, who once owned the plantation—and hid a fortune in gems somewhere on the grounds. And though Sugar Crest is slated for demolition, many people would profit if it were not destroyed, and some just might go to any lengths to make sure it remains standing. To top it all off, the plantation was built on a Native-American burial mound, which Marla knows is never a good idea, and then the groundskeeper turns up dead! Whatever is going on at Sugar Crest, someone is willing to go to great lengths to keep it hidden. But he or she has not planned on Marla, who will stop at nothing to learn the truth before the killer strikes again.
Nancy J. Cohen’s Bad Hair Day mysteries are a cut above the rest—rich, full, and stylish. Now her beautician‐sleuth Marla Shore puts down her curling iron and picks up her skills at detection when she books passage on a cruise ship with a killer aboard. Soon it is full steam ahead toward mayhem and murder—in a case sure to have Marla going off the deep end. Scissor‐wielding sleuth Marla Shore is looking forward to a leisurely cruise with her fiancé Dalton Vail. Too bad Dalton’s teenage daughter and his parents are along for the ride. Instead of a seduction at sea, Marla is meeting the in‐laws and hoping nothing goes too wrong. It is a vain hope. A mysterious envelope stuck into her cabin door read: “I know what you did and I have what you want.” If it had not been addressed to “Martha” Shore and obviously delivered by mistake, Marla might have feared it referred to the nudie pictures buried in her past. But that embarrassment would have been better than what the note does foretell: Troubled water lies ahead. So instead of cruise control, Marla’s on high alert, searching for the note’s intended recipient before the cruise goes down the drain. If Marla does not find the culprit fast, this spunky stylist could end up with her own split end: caught between the devil and the deep blue sea.

Highlights to Heaven
Professional hairstylist and amateur sleuth Marla Shore lands a case close to home when her pet‐loving neighbor—a man aptly named Goat—disappears, leaving his animals alone and a dead body in the master bedroom. The corpse might be just another anonymous stiff, except for the distinctive bronze highlighting his hair. Marla—on the scene and ready for anything—immediately recognizes the signature technique of the Heavenly Hair Salon in Fort Lauderdale and the work of stylist Cutter Corrigan. Curiosity is part of Marla’s motive in deciding to help identify the dead man by questioning the proprietor of Heavenly Hair before the police do. But a powerful physical attraction to sexy Detective Dalton Vail is a major factor in her effort to impress him with her sleuthing skills. And before she even leaves the murder scene, Marla makes another discovery that suggests the killing involves the exotic pet trade, where fancy fur coats are illegally made from local Tabbies and Rovers. How could gentle Goat be involved in that? Outraged and upset, Marla vows to use her contacts in the salon biz to find out the truth. Soon her unofficial questioning of other area hairdressers turns up a surprising link between Goat, the victim, and her own past. The long and short of it is danger for Marla, as she gets closer to uncovering a hair‐raising secret someone would kill to keep.
It’s hair today, gone tomorrow, when Marla Shore’s rival salon owner is murdered in this “charming series” set in South Florida (Library Journal).
For a beautician, Carolyn Sutton sure loves to split hairs. The owner of Hairstyle Heaven has never stopped giving Marla hell for leaving and opening her own salon. She even relocated near Marla’s shop to cut in on her business. But the competition just went from fierce to deadly—when Marla finds Carolyn with her neck broken and a hank of hair missing.
Things get even weirder when Carolyn’s trusted psychic takes over the salon and tells Marla that Carolyn’s spirit wants her to solve the murder. Marla’s search for the homicidal hair-puller takes her from smoky bingo parlors to a spooky town run by spiritualists to sultry Delray Beach. But she doesn’t need a crystal ball to tell her to watch her back—before the killer once again decides to take a little off the top.
New York Times–bestselling author P.J. Parrish raves, “Cohen has penned another follicle-raising frolic with a wry twist of romance.” Readers of all hair colors will have more fun with this rollicking Bad Hair Day Mystery.
