This is book number 14 in the Bad Hair Day Mysteries series.
Hairstylist Marla Vail determines to learn the truth when her best friend is hurt in a suspicious car accident in this suspenseful cozy mystery.
Hairstylist Marla Vail's friends are hurt in a car accident on New Year's Eve. As per their instructions, Marla assumes guardianship of their infant son. But when her detective husband determines the crash may not have been an accident after all, she gets on the case. Who would want Tally and Ken out of the way? As Marla delves deeper into their lives, she realizes she didn't know them as well as she'd thought. Nonetheless, it's her duty to protect their child even if it means learning the ugly truth.
Her sleuthing reveals that Ken's insurance agency was involved in a fraud investigation. Did someone mean to silence him to avoid exposure? Or could something in Tally's life have put her in jeopardy? She'd recently joined a tea ladies circle. Had she discovered secrets about the women that someone would kill to keep? Then again, maybe she'd been the target of a disgruntled employee from her dress shop. As the mystery unravels and Marla narrows the suspect list, she puts her own life at risk. Can she find the culprit before she ends up as roadkill?
