Joanna Politano strikes up marvelous debut with Lady Jayne Disappears

When Aurelie Harcourt’s father dies in debtors’ prison, he leaves her just two things — his wealthy family, whom she has never met, and his famous pen name, Nathaniel Droll. Her new family greets her with apathy and even resentment. Only the quiet house-guest, Silas Rotherham, welcomes her company. When Aurelie decides to complete her father’s unfinished serial novel, writing the family into the story as unflattering characters, she must keep her identity as Nathaniel Droll hidden while searching for the truth about her mother’s disappearance — and perhaps even her father’s death. With debut authors, you never know what you are going to get. However, when I read the publicity materials for Lady Jayne Disappears, I knew I had to give it a shot. Joanna Davidson Politano has created a marvelously entertaining story that brings Victorian England alive. Aurelie is a fully fleshed-out character who has flaws and weaknesses, as well as true strength. All of the characters in the tale are interesting and Politano’s use of their secrets was masterfully done. The settings are wonderfully detailed, adding depth to the story. Politano deftly weaves this information together in a manner that leaves you guessing until the end. I really enjoyed her writing style and definitely will be on the lookout for more of her work in the future. Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new...

Tan 10 and Nails 2 undergoes extensive facelift, will change name soon

Local salon Tan 10 and Nails 2 recently has undergone an extensive facelift, which soon will include a name change. “We haven’t picked a name yet,” said salon owner Amanda Shelton. “I have three different ones coming back to me with the logo and all of girls will choose one.” The salon has changed on the inside, as well — and not for the first time. Shelton purchased Tan 10 and Nails 2, which is located at 111 E. Washington Ave., six years ago from Lois Jennings. Prior to when Jennings owning the salon, it was owned by Bobby Lewis. When Shelton took over six years ago, she made several changes to the salon. For instance, the carpet was pulled up and replaced with tile. “(We) added pedicure chairs and a nail tech (this time),” she said. “We added spray tanning and now we are getting rid of tanning beds as of Dec 31. We hope to be adding an automatic spray tan unit soon after the first of the year.” The tanning beds in the salon are being sold and the rooms in which they sat are being converted into hair rooms — almost like miniature hair salons. The stylists have free rein to decorate their areas, Shelton said. But the salon still will have an intimate aesthetic. “Everyone can still converse, but the stylists have more one-on-one...
