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.


Excellent novella to introduce us to the characters of Blessing. Everything changes when Patty Jane, the pastor’s wife, discovers that her husband is cheating on her. She wises up and decides she is not putting up with it and dumps him, gives his “floozy” a new hairdo and decides to change her look and her life. Her actions cause the other women in town to take a look at their own relationships and many find out there are things they never would have guessed.

There is a sneak peek into The Curl Up & Dye which is the new book released this month (Feb 2014). Definitely one I am going to have to pick up. Gotta love a small town!

I give this 5 paws!

It’s Sala’s soulful writing that will make readers want to befriend LilyAnne and join the ladies of the Curl Up & Dye in in helping her find love again.
