Deadly Dye and a Soy Chai

Danger Cove, #5

Traci Andrighetti and Elizabeth Ashby give the cozy mystery a makeover with this Danger Cove suspense story. Cassidi Conti is a spunky and determined heroine and I was hoping everything would work out for her and her salon. I admired her loyalty to her employees and her resolve to succeed in business. I truly found myself invested in the outcome of this mystery and I wanted to know what the heck happened to her uncle. Her cousin had me in giggles with her larger than life personality and Cassidi's friend is the perfect complement to the bold Easterner. I loved how the mystery wound together such seriousness with so much silliness, it was the perfect balance that kept me turning pages and smiling. The possibility of romance was just enough to add to the story without overpowering it. This was not my first visit to Danger Cove and it definitely will not be my last. I've grown pretty fond of this quant coastal town and this mystery is a great addition to the series. If you are looking for a pleasant read that will leave you clad to have taken a break from reality this is one to pick up.

Book Blurb for Deadly Dye and a Soy Chai

This salon's styles are to die for.

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.
