House of Beauty by Melba Escobar
A thought-provoking Colombian crime novel set in and around a beauty salon in Bogota

House of Beauty is a high-end salon in Bogotá’s exclusive Zona Rosa area, and Karen is one of its best beauticians. One rainy afternoon a teenage girl turns up for a treatment with Karen, dressed in her school uniform and smelling of alcohol. The very next day, the girl is found dead.
Karen was the last person to see the girl alive, and the girl’s mother is desperate to find out what she knows. Most important of all: who was her daughter going to meet that night?

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
#FirstLine ~ I hate artificial nails in outlandish colours, fake blonde hair, cool silk blouses and diamond earrings at four in the afternoon.

A gripping thriller in an amazing setting with a story that will keep you turning pages. It was original and daring. A book that tackles topics head and without apologies, with a fierceness that is very memorable. A great read!
