Southern Beauty Shop
review 1: A fun southern humor cozy mystery series that I always look forward to reading since it means I get to visit with some of my favorite beauticians. (my abfab are the Texan stylists as written by Dixie Cash). The ladies at Violetta's salon are invited to take care of the contestants of the Miss Magnolia Blossom beauty pageant. Murder ensues and Grace needs to find the killer since one of her friends has been accused of the murder. There are protestors, changes in attitude, romance and lots of Southern charm. A definite recommendation.
review 2: In the second book of the Southern Beauty Shop Mystery series we travel back to St. Elizabeth for an area beauty pageant.We find Violetts's the same as always, and Grace thinking about changes, maybe buying a house, when t
... morehe chance to style the contestants in the beauty pageant presents itself and the extra money is a big draw for Grace with the thoughts of a house in her mind.This time neither Violetta or Grace are the suspects in a murder, but it turns out Stella, their manicurist and her husband are, and of course Grace can't just sit back and let Agent Dillon do his job, she has to meddle and try to figure it out herself.We get to experience a beauty pageant, protestors against the pageant, extra-material affairs, greed, jealousy and so much more. There are twists and turns and it turns out that the murderer is not the one you think. I loved the complex nature of the mystery, which kept me guessing till the very end.I also really enjoyed meeting all the characters again. We get to know a little more about each person, all the favorites from the first book are there, including Marty the reporter and Agent Dillon, the only person we see very little of is Hank, and that is probably a good thing.It is really a good, quick read, something to relax you for a bit and fun. I loved it and am looking forward to another book in the series. less
