Baker
& Taylor

After her fiancâe is killed in the Iraq war, LilyAnn loses her zest for life and lets herself go to seed, but when a new guy arrives in town, she decides it's time for a makeover.
Eleven years ago, LilyAnn Bronte was the Peachy-Keen Queen of Blessings, Georgia--the prettiest, smartest, and most popular girl in town, going steady with the star quarterback, a high school career on a fast track to success. Then Randy Joe was killed in Iraq, and somehow LilyAnn just let herself go to seed. Ruby, Mabel Jean, Vera and Vesta of the Curl Up and Dye have been itching to give LilyAnn a makeover, but she knows it would take more than a new hairstyle for her to get her life back. Until one fateful day, when a handsome stranger roars into town, and LilyAnn has a revelation.

Head on down to The Curl Up & Dye for the latest gossip of Blessings, Georgia. This southern romance is a fun departure from Sharon Sala's usual romantic suspense.

Easy read. Author makes the characters come to life and although you can predict much of the book, it still keeps you on your toes. I will seek out her other books about this quaint southern town.

A quick read that's perfect for the vacation. Sharon Sala draws her characters with Southern charm and small town living in Blessings, Georgia. Ruby's Curl Up & Dye is the hotbed for all the local gossip amid the haircuts, perms, and manicures. This book is as fluffy as cotton -- fun to read and easy to forget.
