Dying To Be Beautiful

We rated this book:


The Hamptons are known for the high dollar residents, both permanent and seasonal. With ridiculously large houses, high standards, and a need to have it all, it is not surprising that owning a salon there would be a very lucrative business. After all, everyone wants to be beautiful, no matter what the cost. In Dying To Be Beautiful Mysteries: Without a Head, the matter of the cost of being beautiful is put to the test. Upon opening her salon one morning, Darcy discovers a severed head in one of her shampoo sinks. She immediately contacts her friend, Jenna Preston, a local private investigator. Although born into an affluent family, Jenna has chosen to become a private investigator, and, through her work, has developed a sound reputation as well as a good working relationship with the local police department. Together, with the help of Detective Troy Johnson and the police department, Jenna tries to piece the clues together and catch the murderer. When another body turn up, it seems that what was once thought of as a simple murderous act of jealousy might be more than what they first thought. The closer they get to the killer, the more in danger Jenna finds herself. As she pieces the clues and the victims together, she finds a trail of sex, money, and more that might land her next on the list of victims.

Dying To Be Beautiful: Without a Head by M. Glenda Rosen is a quirky female private investigator novel that will keep readers hooked with its charm, wit and suspense. Private Investigator, and main character, Jenna Preston is someone that readers will be able to relate to and will enjoy following, as she uncovers the clues needed to solve the crime. The connection between Jenna and the police department is well-written in that you see them working together and not stepping on each other’s toes. This makes the charm and wit of the suspenseful story line easier to see and enjoy. What seems to be the first book in a series, I look forward to seeing what falls into Jenna’s lap next.
