My Rating: 4.5 Stars
An original short story by New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Sharon Sala links to her full-length contemporary women’s fiction novel, The Curl Up and Dye.
The novella centers around the four women who run the Curl Up and Dye hair salon and their relationships with the quirky customers of small-town Blessings, Georgia. Their meddlesome efforts at match-making run awry, but there’s always another makeover just around the corner.
I absolutely loved this story. I was hooked from the dedication. This is one of the best introductions to a series I’ve read. It had the feel of one of my favorite movies… Steel Magnolias. I was laughing so hard at one point my DD came to check on me. Let’s just say I might me giggling every time I see red hair for a while 😉 I will not spoil any of this novella, you must read it. It doesn’t take long and will introduce you to many wonderful characters. It is a quick read and was over before I was ready. The pace is fairly fast, but flows nicely. The world building is complete and I could see the town and beauty parlor perfectly. For a novella the characters are remarkably complete and believable; I loved some and really disliked others. I’m looking forward to the next installment of the Curl Up and Dye series that’s going to be a full length novel.
