As the Light Fades by Catherine West + Awesome Giveaway

Welcome to the Blog + Review Tour for As the Light Fades by Catherine West, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!


High Res-As the Light FadesTitle: As the Light Fades

Author: Catherine West

Release Date: September 10, 2019

Genre: Contemporary Fiction

Sometimes we’re placed in the strangest of circumstances for the most important reasons.

After her carefully constructed life crumbles, Liz Carlisle finds herself back on Nantucket, picking up the pieces. With the family estate under renovations, the solitude she craves seems out of reach.

Matthew Stone intends to steer clear of his new tenant. She’s carrying a load of baggage, but as long as she pays the rent, he’ll let her be. He’s got enough to deal with caring for his wayward niece, Mia.

Liz doesn’t have time for teenagers and her track record with men is abysmal, but an unlikely friendship forms between the three.

When her former boyfriend is charged with assault, Liz is called to testify against him. But he knows the darkest secrets of her life—secrets she’d hoped to keep buried forever, and he’s ready to reveal them. Telling the truth is the right thing to do, but it may cost her everything she’s worked so hard for, and all she’s come to love.

I love Catherine West books, and this is another great read from this author. Liz Carlisle moves back to her family home in Nantucket after finding out what her boyfriend was really like. Matthew Stone has moved to Nantucket in his grandparents home that they willed to him. With Matthew is his teenage niece he has custody of because his sister is in jail. Liz soon moves out of the family home because of renovations to make it a Bed and Breakfast, and the only place she could afford was Matthew’s coach house. Liz’s first encounter with Matthew’s niece tells Liz she’s trouble and Liz wants nothing to do with her. But then Liz and Matthew start spending time together. They both need someone to talk to about their dysfunctional life.

I love the way author Catherine West tackles very difficult issues in her books. In “As the Light Fades,” throughout the book characters are dealing with abuse and addiction, in the worse kind of ways. The characters are so well created, I truly felt I was living the story with them. I had trouble with Liz’s character, sometimes her attitude was a little it much, but then I couldn’t relate to the issues she had dealt with either, and I can now see why she acted the way she did. There is a lot going on in this book, several families with lots of characters and many issues throughout all of them. But I love the way Ms. West weaves it all together smoothly, bringing it all to an interesting ending that works for everyone. I highly recommend this clean Contemporary fiction and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
