Overview
Marla and Dalton's honeymoon at an Arizona dude ranch veers from dangerous to downright deadly faster than a horse headed to the corral. With her husband's uncle--the resort's owner--on the suspect list for murder, Marla races to prove his innocence. She hopes her blind trust isn't misplaced, especially when she learns their relative has secrets he'd rather keep buried. As the bodies pile up, she digs deep to find the killer. With her new family in jeopardy, she'd better figure out who's adding to the spirits haunting a nearby ghost town before someone she loves is hurt. Saddle up for Marla's latest adventure in the Wild West where a Bad Hair Day is the least of her worries.

In Cohen’s elaborate 12th Marla Vail mystery (after 2014’s Hanging by a Hair), the perky (and nosy) South Florida hairdresser finds herself in the middle of a feud. Marla and her new husband, Dalton, a police detective, are taking a belated honeymoon trip to Arizona, where they are guests at a ranch owned by Dalton’s relatives. The two branches of the Dalton family have not been in contact for decades, for reasons nobody will talk about, so there’s plenty of domestic drama for Marla to poke around in. Meanwhile, vandalism plagues both the ranch and the nearby ghost town that Uncle Ray is trying to restore; he blames another landowner, who in turn blames Ray for poisoning his cattle. With the suspicious death of a park ranger, the stakes get higher. Fortunately for Marla, people inexplicably tell her things that common sense suggests shouldn’t be shared with a stranger. Still, cozy fans will have fun. (Oct.)
