Dying Roots, Book 1 of 'The Wavy Lady' series


A warm and humorous story about a smart and sassy hairdresser who is a member of UGH, the United Guild of Hairdressers.


A great fun and enjoyable read. While I knew that this is a murder mystery, and the main character, Sylvia, is tasked with solving the crime, I knew from the title and description that I would enjoy this book - and I did. I laughed aloud many many times. After getting started I had this mental picture of a group of people sitting down and brainwashing a list of words related to "hair, salons, hairdressers, etc." that could be used in this story as puns, lead-ins, and descriptions of people and places. Who would not laugh at this description stated by the main character: I never trust a man with more hair on his neck than on his head! I have to say, the girl solves the crime/mystery with great panache. I received an advance review copy for free, and I am leaving this review voluntarily.
