Synopsis

Venus Johnston has a great job and a longterm, livein boyfriend who happens to be a dropdead gorgeous doctor. She also has a weekly beautyparlor date to keep her long, nappy hair slick and straight. But the tedious hours and harsh chemicals in the salon have long grated on Venus. One frustrating day, she trades in the long hair for a dramatically short, natural cut and sends her commitmentbalking boyfriend packing. Its a bold declaration of independence and one that has effects she never could have imagined. Reactions from friends and coworkers range from concern to contempt to outright condemnation. When her ex starts dating a voluptuous, longhaired beauty, Venus is forced to question what she really wants out of life. With wit, resilience, and determination, Venus finally learns what true happiness is, on her own terms.

Nappily Ever After is a story of a 30 something year old woman who goes through a mid life crisis. She cuts all her hair off, breaks up with her boyfriend and almost loses her job. Trisha Thomas does a great job of telling the story of Venus. The novel was well written and the characters interesting a engaging. There is a character in this story for almost every personalty and Thomas portrays them well. She handles the frequent jumps for more characters point of view to the others like a expert. After reading this story I can't wait to find out what happens to Venus.
