Carrying on her mother’s legacy is not quite as simple as Olivia Morris envisioned. As the owner of The House of BeJeweled hair and nail salon, she faces the challenge of inspiring her clientele, while helping her team of talented stylists pick up the pieces of their broken lives. Her mission: to bring out the jewel of a woman by enhancing her inner beauty.
Paired with her team’s drama, she must now fight to keep her heart protected from the one man who has always laid claim to it. When Raymond Ellsworth returns to town after divorcing his wife, it’s all Olivia can do to stay strong in the presence of her old friend. She wants more than to be his forever friend, but it appears that he still sees her as the young girl he left behind years ago.
Stylist Angel Franklin has turned her head the other way in the face of her husband’s infidelity for several years now. She hears the gossip the other stylists engage in about her marriage when they think she isn’t around. But Angel knows that if she continues to hold her husband down like a good woman should, he will come out the streets and return home to her and her son. But when the rules of the game change, Angel must consider if her husband is worth risking it all for.
Olivia’s determined to not only inspire those around her, but she’s also seeking to expand her prosperous salon. Quoting scriptures and prayer may not be enough to ward off the infidelity, domestic violence, and promiscuity, which plagues the gossip filled atmosphere of The House of BeJeweled, the first book in The House series.
The Flight of an Angel is the first book in the BeJeweled series where we meet Olivia Morris, the owner of House Of BeJeweled a fabulous full-service salon. She inherited the salon from her mother, and she wants to continue the legacy of not only enhancing the beauty of each client but also to heal the soul. Set in Atlanta, the clients come from all walks of life to get pampered, and if Olivia has anything to do with it, they get much more.
In this first installment, when Olivia receives a call from her old flame who she hasn’t seen for over five years Raymond Ellsworth that he wants to meet her and have dinner, she agrees only to see what in the world could he want. To catch up? To talk about his marriage? And knowing that why does she have butterflies.
What a tangled web we weave.
Staff Member Angel Franklin is married to a man she knows in her heart is not being faithful to her, but he has one quality that keeps her going home, but will that one thing keep the marriage together? In addition to the issues with her husband, she has a bit of drama in the salon with a staff member Kianna, that threatens to spill over and the consequences could lead to her losing her job in the salon she calls her haven away from home.
The first installment in this series is a great read with strong character flow, and we meet not only the staff but other interesting characters that keep the drama flowing just enough to keep you wanting to turn the pages. Chelle Ramsey does an excellent job of setting the stage for the next book, and I look forward to it.
I recommend you read this book.
