Looking Glass Lies by Varina Denman

Book Review Graphic

FTC: I received a free copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for my honest review. I received no other compensation and the opinions expressed in this review are one hundred percent true and my own.

Looking Glass Lies by Varina Denman was a hard book for me to get and stay interested in this book.  I had a hard time with this book because I have never struggled with what Cecily was so I couldn’t understand or even feel like I could relate to what she was going through in her life.  I know that women who do go through things like this would probably relate and get more out of the book than I did.  I just found myself annoyed and not able to understand what she was going through during this book.  I did like how you got to see as she grew throughout this book because I think that it give others hope who are dealing with the same things.  I am sure that this book would be perfect for people who do go through things like this, but it just wasn’t the right fit for me.

About The Book

A poignant and relatable novel, Looking Glass Lies captures the war women wage against themselves, and the struggle to see beauty reflected in a mirror not distorted by society’s unrelenting expectations.

For most of her adult life, Cecily Ross has compared herself to other women—and come up short. After a painful divorce from her emotionally abusive husband, Cecily returns to her hometown of Canyon, Texas, looking to heal.

But coming home isn’t what she expects. In a town as small as Canyon, her pain is difficult to escape—especially with her model-perfect ex–sister-in-law working at the town’s popular coffee-shop hangout. With help from her father, a support group, and an old friend who guides her to see her own strengths, Cecily may have a shot at overcoming her insecurities and learning to love again.

The true test comes when tragedy strikes, opening Cecily’s eyes to the harmfulness of her distorted views on beauty—and giving her the perfect opportunity to find peace at last.
