Description:

Hairstylist Azalea March is looking forward to a wild weekend in Las Vegas with her friends. Oh, sure, they’re supposed to be there on business, attending the biggest hair show on the west coast, but that doesn’t mean they can’t have a little fun. But fun quickly turns to drama. On the first morning of the show, Dhane, the biggest celeb of the hair-styling world, is found dead. As it urns out Azalea’s friend, Vivian, not only knew Dhane, but the tale she weaves of how they met is faker than a showgirl’s uh… assets. When Vivian confesses to the murder and is arrested, Azalea knows there’s no way she could have done it and suspects Vivian may be trying to protect someone. But who?

Azalea now has to convince Alex, the sexy detective from her past, to help her prove Vivian’s innocence and comb through clues more twisted than a spiral perm. But the truth is stranger than anything found on the Las Vegas Strip, and proving Vivian’s innocence turns out to be more difficult than transforming a brunette into a blonde.

My Thoughts:

This book follows Azalea March as she is having a wild weekend with her friends in Vegas when death pops it's ugly head.  When Dhane a big celebrity winds up beheaded and Azalea's friend Viv confesses to committing the murder but Azalea knows her friend didn't commit the crime and now it's up to Azalea and Juan Carlos to find out who killed Juan Carlos and why her friend Viv is sitting in jail.

Azalea meets some interesting characters connected to Dhane like his sister Trinity who's got a few screws loose, and finds herself in trouble soon enough.  Who is angry enough at Dhane to commit this murder and what do they hope to gain by it?

This book was great and a lot of fun to figure out who killed Dhane and why they did it.  You meet all sorts of characters that Azalea runs into and the ones that mean the most to her.  It was definitely a great book and worth taking the ride with this author.
