Blog Tour of 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

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.

My Review of As The Light Fades by Catherine West: I almost stopped reading this book as there was a lot of content I disagreed with and expected to end differently. I am dissatisfied with the end as there was no redemption as I thought there would be. I can’t recommend this book unless readers are over 17/18 and read with care. I did enjoy the story but was upset that Matt’s faith didn’t seem real and that he pursued a relationship Liz even though she was not saved. There was a unwed pregnancy and other subjects (some of which may cause triggers.)

This would have been a 5 star book if the characters were redeemed but since this book is not marketed as  Christian fiction I suppose it’s all right. As is it’s a 3 and 1/2 star book.

I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book which I received from the author. All views expressed are only my honest opinion.

  1. Unfortunately, life doesn’t always end in redemption. I respect fiction that reflects that. But I also disagree with you – redemption and grace are all over these pages!
