    1. Hilde is a hairdresser who is about to get a huge case dumped in her lap. Now she’s not just any hairdresser, she’s hairdresser extraordinaire to the dead. That’s right, she is the one who fixes the hair before the funerals. But when she mistakenly gets a sneak peek at Mabel, when it’s time to really get Mabel purdied up, something isn’t right. This isn’t the same Mabel as before and then things really start to get weird.I got this book throughNetGalley. I am loving how many options [...]

    2. Title: Missing Mabel (A Curl Up & Dye Mystery #1)Author: Nancy MehlPages: 249Year: 2010Publisher: Barbour PublishingMy rating is 4 stars out of 5.I have read all of Nancy Mehl’s more recent books and was happy to discover she had written this mystery series earlier in her career. The story is set in Wichita, Kansas in the present. Hilde Higgins is a young, single woman with a very interesting and some might say strange job. She is a hairdresser for the deceased. She styles the hair of dead [...]

    3. Review published at: Library of LightsDate reviewed: 14th Feb 2011Review link:mykindaland/?p=132Missing Mabel by Nancy Mehl spooked me. In a good way, that is, considering that this book’s genre is a mystery/thriller. The book is exhilarating to read, and the characters are really absorbing and really likeable.I like how the plot develop from one point to another, and I got easily affected by the characters inside Missing Mabel. I sympathized with the main character who was accused of stealing [...]

    4. What a treat! I thoroughly enjoyed this cozy mystery. It's the best one I've read so far. The characters were delightful, the mystery complex yet not dark and the subplots all worked together to make a great reading meal. The story flowed, I was never bored and I identified lots with the heroine. I'm definitely going to buy some of Nancy Mehl's other mysteries.

    5. "Missing Mabel" is the first in the "Hometown Mysteries" and "Curl Up and Dye Mysteries" by Barbour Books. I was immediately drawn to the story because of my appreciation for the author as well as the publisher. Both have proven themselves when it comes to a good cozy mystery.Hilde is the perfect heroine for a cozy. She is flawed but has just enough going for her to not appear to be a gigantic loser. Hilde is following a personal passion and ministry which involves being a hair stylist to the de [...]

    6. Missing Mabel by Nancy Mehl is the first book in a great new series featuring Hilde Higgins. Hilde lives in a boarding house in small town Eden,Kansas where she is a hairdresser for the dearly departed (hey at least these clients wont complain).When Hilde is assigned to work on the corpse of Mabel Winnemaker she realizes that the corpse isn't Mabel, thru a blunder Hilde had already ummm met Mabel's corpse, so when she is assigned later to do Mabel's hair she realizes right away that the lady isn [...]

    7. Missing Mabel is a cozy mystery with a side of romance. The story would work without the love interest, which makes this novel outside of the genre I normally review.But when I saw the product description on NetGalley, I thought the premise was too interesting not to pick up. I'm glad I gave it a chance because there are several things I absolutely loved about this book.I loved the characterization. Hilde is an eccentric girl who wears purple streaks in her hair, has a deep rooted fear of clowns [...]

    8. "Missing Mabel" is a premier story in the "Hometown Mysteries Series" by Nancy Mehl. Set in small-town Kansas, this humorous mystery revolves around the lead character, Hilde Higgins, a hair-dresser for funeral homes. Hilde knows that the person identified as Mabel Winnemaker is not the same body she previously viewed. But, when Hilde goes to the director of the funeral home, she is accused of stealing Mabel's diamond ring and using the alleged body switching as a distraction to cover her tracks [...]

    9. The funeral home Hilde Higgins works for as a hairdresser is not in the habit of switching or loosing bodies. But when that's exactly what happens, Hilde promptly confronts the funeral home director and is accused of stealing the personal property of the deceased. Desperate to save her reputation and solve the mystery of the missing Mabel, she embarks on a journey to find the truth. Will an old beau be able to help her save her career? Or will the doer slip through the cracks?This book was enjoy [...]

    10. I wanted to be a hairdresser for a fleeting moment until I realized I had no real talent for styling hair. Styling my own hair? Sure. But would someone pay me to do their hair? Probably not. What if I styled the hair of the deceased? Oh that’s a thought right? Wrong!!! Double wrong!!!However, it did work for Hilde Higgins in Missing Mabel. I guess every one has to find a career specialty and Hilde found hers. She really didn't have to worry about disappointing her clients huh? I still couldn [...]

    11. This book is so funny. I loved the humor througout along with a bit of romance. It is full of quirky characters, clumsy incidents that I can just imagin occuring, and a little bit of faith that is not overwhelmig to the story.Hildeguard Bernadtte Higgins Hilde for short) is a hair dresser for the "dearly departed." When she realizes the woman she is to work on is not the real Mabel, she reports it to the funeral director and gets accused of stealing Mabel's diamond ring. Where is the real Mabel? [...]

    12. I will have to keep this review short. I wasn't a fan of this one.I enjoyed the first part of the book. It was a little on the preachy side, but the story itself was alright. I liked following her search for the missing cadaver. BUT I was beyond dissapointed in the ending, I felt like the author unfolded all the details of the mystery too quickly and some I couldn't recall really happening in the story. My final negative thought - at the conclusion I felt like the ending was dumbed down for the [...]

    13. This book wasn't what I thought it would be, but I still enjoyed it! It was a little more juvenile than I thought it would be.Hilde Higgins is a hairstylist for dead people. When she is called in to style an elderly woman's hair she discovers that there is something off about the client that she remembers. Because of her curious personality, Hilde is sent on a wild goose chase to figure out what happened to the real Mabel. I found this book light hearted and funny too! A great read, all in all.

    14. Just finished reading my first book by Nancy Mehl, Missing Mabel. I enjoyed it. Light, quick Christian reading. A little mystery, a little romance, some humor. Can't ask for much more. This is a story about a hair dresser who works with funeral homes to make the loved ones look the best they can before the viewing. She accidently gets involved in a mystery while fixing Mabel's hair and the book concludes with her solving the mystery. Great job. Looking forward to her next one.

    15. An easy read. Christian author w/ spiritual overtones. Story is about a hairdresser who works for funeral homes preparing people for their viewing and funeral. She suspects one of the bodies has been switched when the person she's working on doesn't quite match the picture. Cute book, not morbid.

    16. This book was a true mystery using unique sleuths with unique settings, occupations, and characters. Second, but not least, it is a fine example of Christian literature. There is even a surprise recipe involved. I did not figure the complete story out until the author chose to reveal it.Try Ms. Mehl's works, as she is a professional that should be recognized.

    17. I did like this book BUT it seemed slow to me at times. I also liked that I didn't know who the killer was in the first few chapters like many mysteries. In fact, I didn't know who did it and was surprised when I found out! I enjoyed the characters and the writing style of the author and would read again from her.

    18. This wasn't wasn't a horrible story but it wasn't great either, it justwas. out started off a better, then slowed down and then the ending seemed quite rushed. I had figured out some of the whodunit before it was revealed.I won't be in a hurry to read anymore of these.

    19. This was a surprisingly good little mystery. Nothing really revolutionary, and it's explicitly Christian (though not heavily -- you can decide for yourself whether that's a good or bad thing). I liked it.

    20. Easy fast read. It took me until the end of the book to figure out what happened so a real page turner

    21. This was an enjoyable, undemanding read. I liked the characters but I did question the likelyhood of some elements of the plot. Probably give this 3.5 stars overall.

    22. I thought that this was a good book. It had the potential to be rather silly but I think that it rose above that. When you read the synopsis for this book it may seem silly but it is a good read.
