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.
There is nothing more Southern than hanging out in a beauty parlor. You can hear gossip, get the latest hair trends, and meet an amazing variety of people. That's exactly what happens in Color Me Bad: we meet the movers and shakers of Blessings, Georgia.
And boy, does this town move!
There's allegations of an affair with a pastor, a vindictive and revengeful wife, and bedroom secrets of another couple revealed.
Color Me Bad is a great introduction to Blessings and its inhabitants, which segues nicely into Ms. Sala's full-length novel, Curl Up and Dye (February 2014). I'm looking forward to returning to Blessings!
