TUESDAY REVIEWS-DAY-on-SATURDAY – BOOK REVIEW – AS THE LIGHT FADES by CATHERINE WEST

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

ABOUT THE BOOK

Title: As the Light Fades
Author: Catherine West
Release Date:
September 10, 2019
Genre: Contemporary Fiction

THE BLURB

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

I loved these characters so much! I’ve always had a tender spot for teens who have been wounded. Though never physically assaulted, I identified with Liz in so many ways. And I understood Matthew’s need to distance himself from controlling parents.

Though it appears a total coincidence, the fact that these three ended up tangled in each other’s lives was no accident—Father God is orchestrating our lives in every moment; they needed each other in ways they didn’t realize.

My heart ached for Liz, for her neatly constructed life crumbled at her feet along with the shattered pieces of her heart. And Mia. Resisting the very love she’s searching for. Matthew, the good son, whose dream was jerked from his hand.

As Liz and Mia and Matthew shuffle through their second chances, as they discover and embrace new dreams—and hope—I wept and encouraged, held my breath and scolded.

I was utterly immersed in this story, my heart completely smitten.

TUESDAY REVIEWS-DAY – BOOK REVIEW and GIVEAWAY – CLEAR CONFUSION by KATHY M. HOWARD

Welcome to the Blog + Review Tour (and Giveaway!) for Clear Confusion by Kathy M. Howard, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!

 

ABOUT THE BOOK

Title: Clear Confusion
Author:
Kathy M. Howard
Publisher: Ambassador International
Release Date:
July 1, 2019
Genre: Inspirational Suspense/Thriller

THE BLURB

What am I going to do, God? Who am I?

Charlotte Hallaway needs to come to terms with her father’s death. He had been her only family, and she wasn’t handling her grief well. It was just supposed to be a few weeks of peace and quiet to process it all, but then she saw them-a drug deal and a murder within seconds of each other.

And they saw her.

Now running for her life, Charlotte boards a bus to escape her pursuers and wakes up the next morning in the woods of Jennings, Georgia, without a memory of how she got there or of who she is. All she knows is an underlying fear she can’t seem to shake.

When two hunters find her battered and scared, can she put aside the clear confusion she’s experiencing to trust them? She wants to trust them, especially Nicholas, but fear is holding her back. Trust is incredibly hard when one is so clearly confused. Could it be he and his friend are not who they claim to be?

Who are they really . . . and who is she?

THE AUTHOR

 

Kathy M. Howard resides in south Georgia with her husband and two children. She has been involved in some form of education since 1998 as an elementary school teacher, a private school principal, and presently as a homeschooling mom. As a child, she despised reading, dreading every assignment the subject gave. As an adult, Kathy finally learned to appreciate the written word, so much so that she is rarely seen without her nose in a book.

She loves the Lord and wants to share Jesus where she can, using words written and spoken. By God’s goodness and with the support and love of her family, she has written two novels, From Dishes to Snow (October, 2014), and its sequel, From Driftwood to Sapphire (August, 2015).

MY REVIEW

Oh the twists in this story! The opening jerked this reader right into the story—and held me fast, the tension flipping page after page.

The way Ms. Howard introduced Charlotte’s amnesia shrouded the reader in confusion and darkness—exactly what Charlotte was feeling. And the fear that held her memory hostage was palpable.

The shards of her memory that surfaced came in flashes and slivers. With no other real options, Charlotte had no choice but to trust those who were caring for her. And with that trust, came a bond and friendship.

The Gospel woven neatly into the fabric of the story, giving an added depth and dimension to the connections Charlotte was feeling, and helped restore her memory.

As the men she had witnessed making their transaction closed in on her, this reviewer couldn’t read it fast enough.
