I actually clapped when I received this book. And I sighed as I finished it. I absolutely loved it.
My criteria for a five star review is:
- was there a point of tension in the book that made me full of trepidation about turning the page?
- and does the story continue to echo in my head and heart after I’m done.
Fading Starlight hit both of those on the head!
Lauren is an aspiring fashion designer whose big break is ruined by a “wardrobe malfunction.” She retreats to a job out of the LA area and out of the spotlight, to let the media forget and move on to the next scandal.
Lauren ends up living near Charlotte Montgomery, an elderly and former Hollywood ingenue who is now a recluse.
Charlotte is not just reclusive, she’s downright mean.
Lauren is offered a chance to redeem her career. But at what cost?
I love Katie Cushman’s writing and plotting. This book is about two women, their choices, and the consequences.
I highly recommend it!
I received a free copy from Bethany House in return for an honest review. I honestly loved it!
