 Book Description
 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 ingénue 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 get her life back on track, Lauren's not sure she can turn down the offer--but as she and Miss Montgomery get to know more about each other, Lauren realizes nothing is quite as it seems.
My Review
I am so glad I tried reading Fading Starlight by Kathryn Cushman! I enjoyed this book even more than I thought I would! The characters felt very real and were easy to connect with. The book had a wonderful mix of finding out what happened in Charlotte Montgomery past and what was currently going on with the characters. And the setting and details were great. But one thing that I really like about this book was how it was a clean story with good morels woven in. It was not in a preachy way either, it was gently shown in the way the characters learned or acted. And the plot was so great the story was not missing anything! I think this was was the first book I have read by Kathryn Cushman, and she is already on my list of all time favorite authors!
I received this book free from Bethany House Publishers for my honest review. The opinions are my own.
