When her big shot blows up on her, how far will one woman go to regain her dream? Lauren Summers is in hiding. Her fashion house internship was supposed to launch her career, but a red carpet accident has left her blackballed. The only job she can find comes with little pay, but at least it offers a free place to live – a rundown cottage in the shadow of a cliff-side mansion. Planning to live on savings until she figures out what’s next, she’s unprepared to be contacted by a reporter.
Kendall Joiner is researching Charlotte Montgomery, a former Hollywood ingenue who lives a reclusive life in the cliff-side mansion. Rumors have swirled for decades about Charlotte, and now Kendall wants to find the real story. In return, she may just have the key to getting Lauren back into the fashion world. Desperate to restore her dreams, Lauren’s not sure she can turn down the offer – but as she and Miss Montgomery gets to know more about each other, Lauren realizes nothing is quite as it seems.
My Thoughts: As someone who’s interested in fashion and the Hollywood Hills I was very interested in reading Fading Starlight. Fading Starlight is great. All of the characters are so believable that you even get attached to them. There are a few biblical stories mixed in but they work well with the story, so much so that you might not even notice them. Lauren is a strong character and I love this easy to read style of book without the romance attached to it. If you like Dawn at Emberwilde or The Last Ride, you’ll love Fading Starlight. Especially if you’re like me and very into the celebrity sort of stuff.
