Lime is an engrossing look at the two sides of beauty.  Beaty writes a compelling story about two women locked into the stereotypes of what women should be, and how women are defined by their appearance – for better or worse.  Underlying a narrative rich with fashion and personal relationships, is an important examination of what beauty really is.

The character development is excellent and the story flows.  I was immediately engaged in the rapport between the main characters, and by the end of the book, I cared for them.  I would have preferred the book not to have a prolog and wish the ending had been as well developed as the beginning.

I look forward to more books from this author.


I received this book in exchange for an honest review.
