Welcome to the Nancy J. Cohen official website. I write humorous mysteries and paranormal romance novels with a scifi or fantasy twist. Here you’ll find details about my books, reviews, recipes, contests, cool links, and more. As a Florida author, the tropical images represent the settings that populate my stories. So sit back, imagine yourself in a lounge chair on the beach sipping a rum punch, and enter my world.
Warrior Lord, #3 in my paranormal Drift Lords romance series, has been accepted by Wild Rose Press. Meanwhile, I’m working on my 12th Bad Hair Day mystery, titled Peril by Ponytail.
Hanging By A Hair (Bad Hair Day Mystery #11)
Marla’s joyous move to a new house with her husband, Detective Dalton Vail, is marred by their next-door neighbor who erects an illegal fence between their properties. When Dalton reminds the man of the local permitting laws, tempers flare—and worse, the neighbor is found dead the following day. Dismayed when Dalton is removed from the case due to a conflict of interest, Marla decides it’s up to her to find the killer. Can the intrepid hairstylist untangle the clues and pin down the culprit before he strikes again?
Shear Murder (Bad Hair Day Mystery #10)
Weddings always make Marla Shore shed a tear of joy, and she’s elated to attend her friend Jill’s reception. Marla’s own nuptials are weeks away, and she’s busy following her frenetic to-do list. Her plans go awry when she discovers Jill’s matron of honor dead under the cake table, a knife embedded in her chest. Lots of folks aren’t sorry to see Torrie go, especially since the bride’s sister knew their deepest secrets. But when suspicion falls upon Jill, Marla wonders if her dear friend is truly innocent. She’d better untangle the snarl of suspects and iron out the clues before the killer highlights her as the next victim.
“Smart, edgy dialogue and an intriguing cast of characters lift Cohen’s 10th Bad Hair Day mystery featuring South Florida hairstylist Marla Shore. Once again, Marla shows she’s as adept at investigating murder as she is managing her hair salon.” –Publishers Weekly
“Mix together a sassy hairdresser with a penchant for sleuthing, a sexy detective and some eccentric friends and neighbors; stir in an unconventional murder or two, bake in the South Florida sun, and you have the makings of Nancy J. Cohen’s delicious ‘Bad Hair Day’ mystery series.”–The Island Reporter
Warrior Rogue (The Drift Lords Series #2)
When fashion designer Jennifer Dyhr loses her lead actor for a video-game commercial, a replacement literally drops from the sky. Reluctant to let him leave, she hires him as a model for her studio. But when terrorists attack their flight home, Jen must awaken powers she didn’t know she had to protect them both. Now will she be able to keep her heart safe from the sensual man beside her?
When space ops warrior Paz Hadar falls through a spatial rift onto Jen’s set, he soon realizes she is essential to his mission. Not only must he protect her, his success depends upon her special powers. But as they struggle to stay one step ahead of the enemy, he discovers that fighting his attraction to the lovely Jen is as much a challenge as keeping them both alive.
“There is never a dull moment in this action-packed sci-fi fantasy. With a liberal dose of steamy romance thrown in, this tale is sure to keep you engrossed to the very end.”
