Review: As the Light Fades by Catherine West



Blurb from Goodreads:
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 Review:
 
Ugh, there is nothing I dislike more than being mislead -- had I know this was a Christian book, I probably would not have read this.  I just want to be told in advance if the underlying message is religious, which I do not think is too much to ask.  I generally love books set on Nantucket but this was too neat, too tidy and left a lot out that was not sufficiently explained.  I would pas son this

As the Light Fades comes out next month on September 10, 2019, and you can purchase HERE
Uncle Matt saw my sketchbook the other night. He got this weird look, like he couldn't believe what he was seeing. He said my drawings were amazing. They're okay, I guess. I wouldn't call them amazing. He's way better than me, but I think he like photography more than drawing and painting. We went for a walk on the beach this morning, and he took a ton of pictures of stupid stuff like shells and driftwood. We saw seals though. I think they're cute. I wonder if you were an artist too or if I get it from Uncle Matt. Definitely not from Mom. She can't even draw stick figures.

I love this trope, sub-genre, setting: My Best Friend's Brother/My Brother's Best Friend

I Love This Trope, Sub-Genre, Setting is a new feature on my blog in which I discuss a trope, sub-genre or setting that I love and tell you about books that are shining examples of said trope, sub-genre or setting.  Feel free to play along and please let me know about your favorite books in this realm and whether you like this trope, sub-genre and/or setting as much as I do! Today I am spotlighting the trope of:  My Best Friend's Brother/My Brother's Best Friend , which I would define as any book where the heroine either has a crush on or falls for her brother's best friend or her best friend's brother. I have to confess that I love this trope in nearly all of its iterations!  I have a younger brother so I never got to crush on any of his friends but it's fun reading about that and it's equally as fun as reading about falling for your best friend's brother -- instant sisters!  I know there are a ton

I love this trope, sub-genre, setting: Libraries and Bookstores!!

Today I am spotlighting the setting of:  Libraries and Bookstores , which I would loosely define as any book that largely takes place at a library or bookstore or involves characters that work at a library or bookstore. What could be more lovely to a book lover than a book with characters that also love books?!  I love this mix of genres with this setting -- cozy mystery, contemporary romance, UF, YA, romantic suspense, sci-fi. I know there are a ton of books that I'm missing/haven't read so please let me know! Have you ever read a book set
