BOOK REVIEW: BEYOND THE BLONDE
Georgia Watkins is a star colorist at Jean-Luc, one of New York's most hottest salons. Georgia had to work her way up to this job. She was raised by a single mom, Doreen, who owned a small salon in Weekeepeemie, New Hampshire. Georgia wanted to work with her mother.
Georgia's mother had other plans for her. On Georgia's birthday, her mother handed her an envelope. It contained a round trip bus ticket to New York. Georgia was going to visit Ursula who at one time baby-sat for she and her sister. Ursula now lived in Queens. Doreen, Georgia's mother, even bought her a new outfit for the trip. Georgia knew all of this was quite expensive but her mother responded by stating "You are only young once".
Eventually, Georgia attended the Wilfred Academy. It is here where she met Patrick who helped to get her a job at the Jean-Luc salon. She worked her way up to colorist. Georgia soon finds herself in a steamy relationship with stylist Massimo.
She also finds herself doing some very interesting things such as highlighting dogs' hair to match their owners and making house calls to the Hamptons. She also finds it amazing as to what clients will do to keep their colorist happy.
How does working in one of the hottest salons affect Georgia's life?
This is a fun novel to read. One of the really interesting points made by Georgia is the way she classifies her clients: The Manhattan (socialite), The Manhattan (working woman), The Bedford, The Greenwich, The Five Towns and The Short Hills. You will love her description for each category. There is a lot of humor in this book so be prepared for several laughs. This is one that you will thoroughly enjoy. The author has done an excellent job with her debut novel and we look forward to the next book by Kathleen Flynn-Hui.
