Kathleen Flynn-Hui is one of New York's top colourists at Salon AKS. Among others, she's worked with Sarah Michelle Gellar, Julianna Margulies and Rosie O'Donnell. Beyond the Blonde is her first novel.From AudioFile:
Flynn-Hui brings the inner life of a high-end Manhattan beauty salon to life. Georgia Watkins, daughter of Doreen-the-super-stylist of Weepeekeemie, New Hampshire, becomes New York's premier colorist to the rich and famous. But trouble lurks below the surface as personalities clash and hormones rage, upsetting the high-energy routine of Jean-Luc's upscale salon. Susan Ericksen's narration is vivacious as she acts the part of the petulant Frenchman, Jean-Luc, and the romantic Italian, Massimo, while keeping small-town Georgia conscious of her New England roots and values. Erickson portrays the romance that blossoms amid the salon's other little dramas, including green-eyed jealousy that erupts and pulls Georgia into its grasp.
