Love and a Bad Hair Day by Annie Flannigan

Book Description

Jolene Hadley Corbett believes that on a bad hair day bad things happen - men run off, cars break down, it rains all over your best new outfit. So when Ry O'Malley comes back into town Jolene immediately checks the mirror. Yep, bad hair! Jolene Hadley Corbett believes that on a bad hair day bad things happen-men run off, cars break down, it rains all over your best new outfit. So when Ry O'Malley comes back into town Jolene immediately checks the mirror. Yep, bad hair! Of course, there's also that generations old Corbett/O'Malley feud--sort of like a poor man's Hatfield/McCoy feud. It's the biggest tourist draw in Verbena, Georgia--bigger than the AE Hadley Auto Garage and Museum...huger than the Every Other Sunday Flea Market and Jamboree...more monster than the Southwinds Trav'O'Tel and All Day Breakfast Buffet (the cause of indigestion in three counties!) Jolene's not about to let a man who once pulled off the top of her bathing suit (OK she was 14 and in the pool...but still!) get away with messing up her well-conditioned world. So she gears up for the final chapter in the O'Malley-Hadley feud. She expects to win...But first, she's got to find that can of hairspray.

Reviews

US Kirkus Review » The perils of a small-town hairdresser and single mom, as seen in a first from Flannigan. Jolene Hadley Corbett knows something is going to happen when her own hair won't cooperate. It's a frowzy mess today-and that's a bad sign. All the Hadleys believe in signs, unlike the materialistic O'Malleys, who always seemed to get the jump on everyone else in Verbena, North Carolina, when it came to making money. The two families have been enmeshed in a petty feud for decades, even though their patriarch, Howdy O'Malley, redeemed himself somewhat by being so nice to Jolie's young son Dylan, letting the boy do odd jobs at South Winds, the motel he owns across the street from her beauty parlor. But the other members of the grasping clan are so mean they didn't even show up for the old man's funeral . . . except for Ryman O'Malley, Jolie's teenage crush. Well, well, well-he's gotten a lot taller and filled out nicely, become a private pilot and generally made a success of his life (except for his sullen, 17-year-old daughter Sugar Anne). And what, Jolie inquires, are his plans for the South Winds motel, a local institution renowned for its retro charm and All-Day Breakfast Buffet? Ryman replies that he's going to tear it down. But it does make money, she points out. Don't the O'Malleys love and worship the almighty dollar above all else? Well, not Ryman. He's actually tearing the quaint old structure down to prevent his mercenary relations from moving in-or something like that. In the meantime, he'd love to take Jolie for the ride of her life in an ancient convertible called the Starliner that they resurrect from her granny's auto wrecking yard. Then Sugar Anne decides to chain herself to the fence in front of the South Winds to keep the bulldozers at bay-and all hell breaks loose. Friendly, funny little romance, despite its category contrivances. (Kirkus Reviews)

Author Biography - Annie Flannigan

Annie Flannigan recently relocated from Missouri to Kentucky with her husband, two children, two dogs, and way too much stuff! She feels especially qualified to write a book about love, loyalty, and the intense personal relationship between a woman and her " 'do" because the constraints in her own life have always been family, writing...and bad hair!
