Canadian author MIMA showcases her considerable talents in Different Shades of the Same Color, a full-throated, sexy, at times shocking, depiction of small town culture and manners - filled with richly drawn characters and laugh-out-loud humor. It took me only a couple of sittings to read its 264-pages and I felt an immediate pang of regret after I finished. I didn't want to leave Natasha, Clifford, Chase, Flora, Vanessa and the other wonderful characters who I fell in love with from the opening chapter. Different Shades is the fifth book by this talented and prolific authoress who is fast establishing a worldwide reputation for boundary-pushing fiction. Different Shades of the Same Color is the perfect travelling companion for a long bus or plane trip or a lazy day at the beach. Warning: If you take this book to the beach be careful you don't get so lost in the plot you forget to reapply the sunscreen!
