Native Texan Cassidi Conti was expecting to face some obstacles when she moved to Danger Cove and opened The Clip and Sip, a hair salon that gives away free drinks. What she wasn’t counting on was a client dying during a dye job. But when eighty-year-old Margaret Appleby comes in for her biweekly appointment, that’s exactly what happens: Margaret drinks her usual soy chai, dozes off under the dryer…and doesn’t wake up. Now The Clip and Sip is under suspicion, clients are wary, and Cassidi is on a mission to prove that while her styles may be killer, her employees are innocent! But as Cassidi wades through the myriad of suspects in the small, costal town, the killer sets his sights straight on everyone’s favorite stylist. If Cassidi doesn’t watch her back, she may just end up Danger Cove’s latest fashionable victim.
My Review It was a book that was beautiful in its cover and inside its pages. I love the cover of this series are one more beautiful than another. This was a fun, quirky fast-paced mystery full of humor, with whimsical and well defined characters, a very amazing setting.
Cassidi Conti has just inherited a hair salon but her business is not going very well. The situation worsens when a elderly lady dies under the dryer. She must to find the real culprit before her business is ruined forever.
This is the fifth book set in Danger Cove but can be read as a standalone. It's so well written and now I want to go back to the beginning and read this series from the start. Each book is written with a different author and I'm curious to read other collaborations of Elizabeth Ashby: this is is really excellent.
If you are looking for a cute and funny mystery then you need to read this one.
