As the Light Fades by Catherine West - Review with 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 Fades 
Title: 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: 

With a book by Catherine West I can guarantee to be fully engrossed and emotionally invested. And As the Light Fades was no different.

The character's in this book are dealing with real life issues that we all deal with. The devastation from past mistakes, fear of the future, and a deep desire to not repeat mistakes and be a better version of themselves go through the book from beginning to end.

Having raised three girls the teenage angst that Mia had was on point and broke my heart all over again. 

Family dynamic stories are some of my favorite. Within these pages we get to see Drake, the family patriarch, who is suffering from Alzheimer's to teenager, Mia whose young life has been nothing but one upheaval to another. Matt, Mia's uncle is doing the best he can to be a soft place for Mia to fall. Liz is afraid to be hurt again which makes the romance between her and Matt an interesting one. 
There were humorous parts along the way which rounded out the painful and emotional issues the character's deal with.

 This book evoked all the feels and I highly recommend it!
