Publisher's Summary

When the economy tanks in Whiskey Creek, Georgia, hairstylist Jolene Claiborne expands her business to include skin care. A wise move until Scarlett Cantrell, a local celebrity, is murdered in the facial room. The police brush aside Jolene’s suspicions that the incident is tied to a recent break-in, and, to complicate matters, the victim's ghost threatens to make Dixieland Salon her permanent place of residence if Jolene fails to expose the killer. 

Scarlett’s last words provide the only clue: “Find the jade elephant. Explains everything.” That is until a book of poetry turns up with a dangerous secret inside. Dealing with a diva ghost ain’t easy in the Bible belt. Throw in a sexy police detective, a crooked mayor with connections to the mob, a family cover-up, and a mother who hasn’t cut the apron strings, and you get one stressed out middle-aged hairstylist with murder and mayhem on the brain.

Dixieland Dead: The Haunted Salon

Add one Southern stubborn salon owner + one ghost + one sexy detective and you get a story that will have you sitting back sipping a southern ice tea, fanning yourself and hoping romance will win.
Jolene and her two sisters on a salon and for to financial constraints have added a skin care section. The local reporter, Scarlett, comes in for an appointment and dies. To make matters worse, Scarlett's ghost shoes up and can only be seen by Jolene. The race is on to see who will solve the case--Jolene or the police.
The narrator is fantastic with her southern portrayal and portrayals. She makes you feel the languid days and nights of the South.
Fantastic sorry, narration and read!!

Fun read!

As the other reviewer said, it's a cutesy mystery with a lot of humor and a little romance. The narrator did a fantastic job with all the accents, and with differentiating between the characters. The book was very light, kind of a beach read, but good enough to hold my interest all the way through. I look forward to other books in the series as they become available!

Hair Salon at it's best

Cutesy mystery with a touch of romance. MS Ewing brought the southern personalities and southern family dynamics to life. A really good listen. The narrator's voice is clear and expressive. She nailed the accents down pat. Great job.

Light and humours at times.

It took me awhile to get into this story and the narrator did not suit this audio book. It was not a bad but others might appreciate it more then I did.
