Review: The Yellow Rose Beauty Shop by Carolyn Brown


Stella’s mama never should’ve put Stella on the church prayer list. With Stella’s twenty-seventh birthday coming up fast, Nancy desperately wants to see her daughter married and giving her grandbabies. Petitioning heaven seems like a surefire way to get it done. But in Cadillac, Texas, where the gossip’s hotter than the city’s famous jalapeƱo peppers, it isn’t long before all hell breaks loose.

Heather, the bossy leader of the church’s Prayer Angels, thinks a summer ball will get Stella and the town’s other single gals paired off. But nobody can tell redheaded spitfire Stella what to do—not her mama, not Heather, and not even the sexy beau Stella’s been seeing in secret. Together, Stella, her best friends Charlotte and Piper, and the loyal customers of the Yellow Rose Beauty Shop hatch a good old-fashioned scheme to sabotage the ball. But will it wreck Stella’s relationship with her mama forever? And what will the church folk think when Stella reveals the identity of her mystery man?

Rating: 4/5

Stella is peeved! Her mother, whom she loves dearly, has asked the Prayer Angels to pray for her to find a husband - and Heather, the overbearing leader, has put it on the sign out the front of the church for all to see. Its embarrassing! Its humiliating. And the locals think its all because Stella is pregnant, isn't she? The rumor-mill is in full gear and Stella isn't going to put up with it. She and her friends plan to sabotage the "matchmaking ball" and put Heather in her place once and for all.


This story is hilarious! A must read.
