Synopses & Reviews
Valentine's Day is fast approaching and everyone has a sweetheart, except Stan Kraychik, Boston's sassiest hairdresser. Ever hopeful of meeting Mr. Right, Stan attends a gala reception that culminates in a death by poisoning, and romantic problems take a back seat to murder.
The Boston police arrest Stan's friend Laurett Cole, who then leaves her four-year-old son in Stan's care. In his quest to free Laurett from suspicion and himself from his ill-mannered ward, Stan finds himself exploring the secrets of a revered Boston institution, the Gladys Gardner Chocolate Company. There, along with the sweet edibles, he finds an assortment of not-so-delectable murder.
"Refreshing...a pleasant story of murder, mixups, and mayhem....The story's perky pace is due to Michaels' penchant for campy conversation and humorous insights from the snappy snipper from Snips."--Lambda Rising Book Report
"The one-liners fly as fast as the bullets and there is a surprise in nearly every chapter. Love You To Death is an engaging murder mystery that epitomizes the best of the genre."--The Advocate
"Grant Michaels' sleuthing hairdresser has both the sensitivities of his craft and the balls to impel him into atypical daring. A Body to Dye For has the tart, racy smell of success."--Bay Area Reporter
