Those were the best days of her life...
"Poor LilyAnn," the local ladies lament. "She sure is stuck in the past."
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 the 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 make 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.
Maybe the best is yet to come...



LilyAnn has led a charmed life, at least in the beginning. Then the unthinkable happens - she loses her fiancé to the war in Afghanistan just after 9/11. She mourns for years. And, unbeknownst to her, her best friend and next door neighbor Mike has loved her almost all their lives.
Their lives are serene if not a tad boring and a little miserable until the day a handsome stranger comes to town. Lily decides it is time to change her life. This does not bode well for Mike, the man who has lived her for so many years. Now the women at The Curl Up and Dye salon want to help getting LilyAnn and Mike together. They belong together, it is fate or Karma whatever it can be attributed to they would be perfect together. `Sister' who does LilyAnn's hair every week, is especially keen on helping them out and what she does isn't always for the best, but it is always from the heart!

This is such a cozy read, with well-written and complicated, multi-layered characters, a wonderful story line and descriptions of a small town in Georgia that is so wonderfully written that I just want to go there and be around everyone! This book is mild compared to some, but does contain some salty language and some sex scenes. The sexual scenes are not overly erotic or too smutty, but just enough to make you tingle a little! I loved this book and I sure hope that there will be another book about the characters in this town.*ARC supplied by publisher for reviewing purposes*
