Sassy salon owner Marla Shore is giving grumpy Mrs. Kravitz a perm when her client dies in the shampoo chair. If that isn’t enough to give her a bad hair day, handsome Detective Vail suspects Marla of poisoning the woman’s coffee creamer. Figuring she’d better expose the real killer before the next victim frizzes out, Marla sets on the trail of a wave of wacky suspects. Her theory regarding whodunit gels only after she looks for the culprit closer to home.

What was your inspiration for this book?
I was getting a perm at the salon and waiting for the timer to go off. Looking at all the other women staring into space, I decided we needed something gripping to read to kill time. What if one of these women ended up dead? Thus was born my Bad Hair Day mystery series featuring hairstylist and salon owner Marla Shore.
When you wrote the book did you know you were going to offer it as an audio book?
Not at all. I have 12 published books in this series, and this is my first audiobook. I had to get the audio rights back from the publisher.
Why did you decide to produce an audio book?
I've wanted to get my books into audio for a long time as another avenue for readers and listeners to access my work.
How did you choose the reader for the book and the production company?
I went through ACX and vetted a number of narrators before choosing Mary Ann Jacobs. I love how she does the different characters and her voice for Marla.
