Intriguing and complex, Done Dirt Cheap is an addictive and colorful debut. Lemon writes with ease and her prose is absolutely stunning and raw. I didn’t expect the language to be as lyrical as it is and it made the dual third-person narrative structure flow seamlessly. That said, I did lose the narrative thread more than once and had to reread passages several times over to make sense of some plot revelations. Still, Tourmaline and Virginia are equally strong and flawed protagonists and it was such a delight to see them find and use their strengths to rise above the patriarchal structures surrounding them. I’m so glad a friend recommended this book to me and I can’t wait to see what Lemon has in store for us next.
