A short story of 17,000 words

It’s been a bad month for Tonya Garcia. After her beloved Nonna nonna died, her boyfriend's only sympathy involved big plans for spending her inheritance. What was she doing with that skinny-legged jerk, anyways? Now that he’s out of the picture, Tonya needs a new start and with the help of a dartboard decides Willowdale, North Carolina is the place.

But the move from the Big Apple to this hole in the wall isn’t as easy as she figured. On her first day in the tiny town, she gets a speeding ticket from a hot cop and a warning from the locals not to open a new beauty salon like she’d planned.

The only saving grace is the chicken and biscuits at The Jelly Jar diner, a new friend desperate for a decent 'do, and the police chief who might be interested in her for all the wrong reasons. Can Tonya find new love and a new life? Or was her ex right—that she’ll be running back to him in New York?

This is the first short story in the Willowdale Romance series. Read story #2, "A Little Hanky Panky", and look for story #3, "A Perfect Setup" in fall 2012. Lisa's first novel in the series, No Foolin', will be released by Belle Bridge Books on November 25, 2012.

This story was really cute. I loved the main character and the towns people, they had fun quirks. The only reason I'm not giving five stars is because the relationship between the main character and her new love interest felt a bit rushed and not special. I don't know, I guess I'm a detailed romance kind of girl??? But still, it was cute.

Tonya's Nonna has died, and Marcus is planning how she should squander it on things for him. More than reason enough to find a fresh start elsewhere. Tonya leaves NY to settle in a really small town (population 1200) as the new hairdresser, only everyone tells her she can't. Cute short story of 119 pages has enough background, likable characters, charming setting ans smooth resolution for an easy light afternoon read. I'll be reading more from this author.

After living on the same street in New York all of her life she’s going to start over. Now that her Nonna is gone it’s not the same anyways.
