ROSIE'S CURL AND WEAVE: Four Novellas
STEP INSIDE FOR A DAY OF BEAUTY, LAUGHTER...AND LOVE.
Whether you want a cut, weave or braid; a facial, manicure, or massage; there's always a helping hand-and a sympathetic ear-at Rosie's Curl and Weave on 125th Street in Harlem. And sometimes, when you least expect it, love walks in the door. So sit back, relax, put your feet up, and enjoy, as four talented writers render four magical stories about the love of beauty and the beauty of love.
Rochelle Alers gets the sparks flying, as a high-maintenance banker finds herself falling, against her better judgement, for a handsome delivery man who walks into Rosie's...
Donna Hill puts the assistant manager of Rosie's in the path of a fine-looking contractor, whose hypnotic honey-brown eyes could be her undoing...
Felicia Mason helps the owner of Rosie's discover that you don't have to be young-just young at heart-to fall in love...
Francis Ray turns a timid, dowdy duckling into a confident, sexy swan-and sends her into the arms of a handsome artist-with the help of Rosie's Curl and Weave...
"Rosie's Curl And Weave" Reviews
This anthology of short stories brought to mind my early years of reading Harlequin as a impressionable pre - teen. Each of the stories follows the typical romance storyline: meet, become inexplicably attracted to one another, have a disagreement, get back together, and live happily ever after. Of course, as required in the traditional romance stories, the main characters are wealthy and not only beautiful, but head turning gorgeous. However, there was one thing that was different, all of the characters were Americans of Color and all the stories passed through a specific beauty shop in Harlem. It was refreshing to meet characters of color that weren't ratchet or ghetto fabulous set in the positive Harlem that is very seldom discussed in greater society. Likewise, the stories were well written and tastefully describe the feelings of those newly in love expertly without being explicit.
If you're in the mood for a lite, entertaining, and easy read that is a break from real- life, then you might enjoy this book.
The stories were good, but I felt like they were all unfinished. Each of the stories could have been a full length in its own right
Four stories about 4 different people from a beauty shop. The authors did a great job
Great stories I enjoyed
my all time favorite book
