Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Young, witty, bitchy read of behind-the-scenes glamour as a small-town girl climbs the ladder of hairdressing success in New York. An autobiographical novel quite startling in some of its revelations.

Comparison: Nicola Kraus and Emma McLaughlin, Belinda Jones, Plum Sykes.
Similar this month: None but try Wendy Holden and Melissa Hill.

Here's what one of our members thinks of her bag
A big thank you for the two Lovereading bags I ordered, which have arrived safely. I love mine and will use it with pride. The bags are lovely quality, sturdy and support a good cause in the Rewrap initiative; I think they make the perfect accessory for any book lover. The second bag was a gift for my sister and she says she will take it to her next book group meeting to help spread the Lovereading word. Once again, many thanks. Emily Wright

Synopsis

Beyond The Blonde by Kathleen Flynn-Hui

Kathleen Flynn-Hui - hairdresser to the stars - takes readers behind the frosted glass panels of the top salons and into the glamorous and bitchy world of women (and men) who'd kill for a handful of honeyed highlights. Beyond the Blonde follows the fortunes of Georgia, a small-town girl with big-city ambitions as she makes her ascent to the position of colourist at one of the most exclusive salons in New York. But if Georgia is to achieve the heady heights of urban salon success first she must battle bullies, find romance, endure heartbreak and betrayal. Can she make the cut? Or will it all unravel like a perm in a rainstorm?

Anyone who loved The Nanny Diaries for its peek into an unknown world of slavery and hardship will adore Beyond the Blonde for similar reasons. And as for those who couldn't miss an episode of Cutting It, here is the ideal book to plug the gap between series.

In this superb roman-a-clef, Kathleen Flynn-Hui tells it like it is and gives readers more than one opportunity to spot the stars behind the stories ...

If you LOVE reading then you will love LOVEREADING! It's a 'novel' idea. Seriously though I could not recommend them enough.

They are bright, breezy and eager to offer a great book, then genuinely listen/respect the review one writes.
