Permed to Death by Nancy J. Cohen
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
This was a typical who-done-it that lacked the humorous dialogue which, in my opinion, somewhat defines a cozy mystery. While I liked the beauty salon setting, I felt that the main character lacked complexity, and was a bit unlikable. Another issue was the plethora of stereotyped characters in unlikely situations that were introduced shortly thereafter, which made for a confusing time and did not add much value to the plot itself. I did enjoy the smattering of Yiddish expressions throughout, which although irrelevant, I thought added a bit of interest to the story. I must say, however, that it was difficult for me to finish this book, as it really did not hold my interest. I do not believe that I would take the time to read another book in this particular series.
