Packed with laughs and mystery, “Fringe Benefits” offers something for readers from all walks of life.

Author Sandra Knight delivers lots of laughs intertwined with an engaging mystery in her debut novel, “Fringe Benefits” (published by Balboa Press).

Set in Wellington, New Zealand, “Fringe Benefits” centers on the ladies of the hair salon, Seekers Hair Fashions. Together owner Sue Knovac, senior stylist Rona and apprentice Lucy serve a cast of colorful characters who vary from outrageous to downright rude- but no angry client compares to their tyrannical landlord, Frank Morgan.

Sue, Rona and Lucy have watched Frank bully his poor wife, May, and decide to take her under their wing. With a new makeover, May’s confidence is up - until she mysteriously disappears. It is up to Sue and the gang to uncover the truth about May’s disappearance before it’s too late.

Packed with laughs and mystery, “Fringe Benefits” offers something for readers from all walks of life. Knight’s experience as a salon owner brings a touch of realism to the novel and weaves a string of authenticity throughout the narrative.

An excerpt from “Fringe Benefits”:

“Frank Morton’s lack of response left Sue feeling she might as well be talking to a brick wall. Why did the horrid little man think he had a right to treat people that way? He was nothing to write home about anyway, with his bald head and ugly face. The silver medallion amongst the grey hairs on his chest was a reminder to Sue that Rona had likened Frank to an aging Tony Bennett.”
