Limelight by Melody Carlson was a delight to read. Claudette was the spoiled self-centered actress that I loved to LOVE. She was simply adorable. Watching her navigate new experiences and even learning how to do her own laundry made me giggle in appreciation of her efforts. Melody did such a good job writing this character and even more so by tackling a gay character, which isn't something I normally appreciate. This book proves, once again why Melody is one of the best selling authors in the Christian fiction arena.

About the book:
Claudette Fioré used to turn heads and break hearts. She relished the glamorous Hollywood lifestyle because she had what it takes: money, youth, fame, and above all, beauty. But age has withered that beauty, and a crooked accountant has taken her wealth, leaving the proud widow penniless and alone.

Armed with stubbornness and sarcasm, Claudette returns to her shabby little hometown and her estranged sister. Slowly, she makes friends. She begins to see her old life in a new light. For the first time, Claudette Fioré questions her own values and finds herself wondering if it’s too late to change.
