Desperate for a grandchild, Nancy Baxter requests prayer at her church for her daughter Stella to find a husband, but she is shocked at what she has stirred up. The very next morning, there is a huge sign in front of the church requesting a husband for Stella, who is part owner of the Yellow Rose Beauty Shop, and she is livid. In fact, she refuses to speak to her mother after discovering that the sign came about due to her mother's request. But this is only the beginning since Heather, the overbearing leader of the church's Prayer Angels, is a bitter rival who wants Stella's position as piano player there. Heather sees this as a way to run her competition out of town, even as she sets herself up as a marriage minister with wild dreams of making it big. Soon Heather is holding bake sales and scheduling a ball to be held in a local barn, all to add to the proceeds of her ministry and to find Stella a husband.

But there is something that Stella has not told anyone, not even her mom. She is already married to the man who keeps sneaking into her bedroom. To keep from jeopardizing his job, they decided to let their marriage be a secret temporarily, just for the next few weeks until his position is secured. However, it is getting harder and harder to maintain their secrecy. This is made even more difficult because everyone is watching her to see if any of the wild rumors flying around town are true.  Meanwhile, Heather's antics are getting under her skin. But Stella, a red­headed spitfire, does not plan to sit still for what her rival has planned. With the help of her best friends, her sexy beau, and her loyal clients at the Yellow Rose Beauty Shop, Stella makes plans to sabotage the ball and put an end to Heather's plans for future Barbecue Balls once and for all. But will she be able to maintain the secrecy of her marriage until the night of the ball, or will the small town's spies discover what she is hiding? How will these events affect her relationship with her mama?

A hilarious tale, THE YELLOW ROSE BEAUTY SHOP, the third in bestselling author Carolyn Brown's CADILLAC series, is a sassy, sexy contemporary story that will have readers cheering on Stella and her friends. I just love small town stories and this one is no exception. I could just imagine the women hanging out at the beauty shop and loved the whole idea of Stella's new husband sneaking into her bedroom window while her friends were right in the next room. There was a great deal of chemistry between Stella and her husband, as there should be, and some of their communications were so sweet they may bring you to tears. Additionally, there is a secondary romance budding between the local rake, Rhett, and Stella's best friend, Piper, the mother of two young boys. Meanwhile, her other best friend, Charlotte, who starred in the previous book of this series, is getting ready for her own wedding. There is a lot going on in this town, but the antics will leave you laughing out loud.

Jam-packed with small town charm, family dynamics, humor, weddings, barbecues, jalapeño peppers, secrets, sabotage, rivalry, sexy intrigue, romance and true love, this story is one you will not want to miss! After reading this book, I had to have the two previous books in this series, THE RED-HOT CHILI COOK-OFF, Charlotte's story, and THE BLUE RIBBON JALOPENO SOCIETY JUBILEE. While you are picking up your own copy of THE YELLOW ROSE BEAUTY SHOP, why not check these books out also.
