Friends of the Deceased by Dale J. Moore

This is the story of Katrina, the terminally clumsy, accident prone owner of Kat's Kuts, a hair salon in Toronto. She is asked by his lawyer to cut the hair of a recently deceased customer and from there she is plunged into a mystery involving jewellery theft, rogue charities and casket fraud. Paired up with an assistant from the salon, Marlene and a handsome detective, Jake - she tries to get to the bottom of the mystery.

This was a nice little detective story. I like the fact that the lead character is a female, and not a perfect one at that. Her interaction with the other characters was realistic and led to some genuinely funny moments. I really enjoyed this, and I did laugh out loud in places. It all came together for a happy and satisfying ending.

I recommend this as a happy little detective story. Not too long or too short, just nice enough to be read in a quiet afternoon.

I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for my review.
