Mix together a cocktail for murder, add a few salty suspects, toss in a dollop of sweet humor, and you have the recipe for Trimmed to Death, #15 in the Bad Hair Day cozy mystery series.

Savvy hairstylist and amateur sleuth Marla Vail enters a charity bake-off contest at a fall festival sponsored by a local farm. While she waits to see if her coconut fudge pie is a winner, Marla joins a scavenger hunt where people playing character roles are the targets. Instead of scoring points with a live person, she finds a dead body planted face-down in the strawberry field. Who would want to cut short the life of food magazine publisher and fellow bake-off contestant Francine Dodger? As she investigates, Marla learns there’s no shortage of suspects. A celebrity TV chef, food critic, olive oil importer, food truck owner, pastry chef, and cookbook author may be stirring up more than their next recipe. Can Marla unmask the killer before someone else gets trimmed from life?

Recipes Included!



EXCERPT

Alyce’s gaze hardened. “What are you saying, Marla?”

“I can’t help wondering if you were the intended target that day and not Francine.”

Alyce shot to her feet and raked her fingers through her short hair. “That’s absurd. Who would want to do me in? Francine had her share of enemies.”

“Like who? Do you have any suspicions besides the people you’ve already mentioned?”

“Steve’s firm manages Tony Winters’ accounts. Steve has hinted there’s something fishy about Amalfi Consolidated. I have an idea what it is, but I need evidence. Maybe Francine got wind of it and threatened to expose them.”

“Can you tell me what this involves?”

Alyce’s lips pursed. “Not until I can back up my theory with hard proof.”

Marla, sensing a dead end in that direction, changed tactics. “How does Carlton Paige feel about your blog? Aren’t you two rivals for the same audience?”

“That pompous ass blows a lot of hot air. His reviews are questionable, if you get my drift. If anyone’s job is in jeopardy, it’s probably his.”

“He gave a high rating to The Royal Palate. Dalton and I ate there over the weekend. Their menu items were too eclectic for our tastes. Tristan was kind to give us a tour of his kitchen and a taste of his desserts.”

“Tristan suspects the truth but he’s afraid to say anything. The restaurant’s ads claim they buy their ingredients from sustainable resources. That’s baloney. Lots of restaurants claim they buy from environmentally-friendly green farms. Maybe they start out that way, but then they go for cheaper choices. They have to offer food at a price consumers will pay, while buying the best ingredients they can afford. But soon it becomes buy low and sell high.”
