7XIK7b-Q.jpegTitle: 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.

My thoughts:
What wonderful book. I’m not sure if this is considered a series, it can definitely be read as a stand alone but Catherine wrote a book a couple of years ago that has the same characters I and loved that book.
This one is equally engaging and we get to know a different family member, Elizabeth, better this time.
The author did a great job of depicting Matthew’s niece, Mia, all attitude and know everything, yep, I’ve encountered that.
I also loved being in the POV of Liz’s father and his fading memory. How sad and eye-opening to read his thoughts as his memories slowly fades away and the hope that his family has when he says something that makes sense.
I recommend this one!
Grab your copy at your local bookstore, Amazon, or your favorite retailer.
