About: Lauren Summers is hiding. Her fashion house internship should have launched her career, but a red carpet accident has left her blackballed. The only job she finds is unpaid, but comes with free lodging--a run-down cottage in the shadow of a cliff-side mansion. Unsure of what comes next, she's surprised to be contacted by a reporter researching a reclusive former Hollywooding Enue who lives in the nearby mansion.
Kendall Joiner wants Lauren's help uncovering the old woman's secrets. In return, she'll prove the red carpet accident was a publicity stunt so Lauren can regain her former job. With all her dreams in front of her, Lauren's tempted by the offer, but as she and the old woman get to know each other, Lauren realizes nothing is quite as it seems.
This is the second book that I have read by Kathryn Cushman. I will say I did really enjoy "Fading Starlite" and found it to be a book that had me from the beginning as Lauren Summers has to work her way through the fashion industry, which isn't what she thought it would be. Then, she is offered a cottage, deals with a reporter, but doesn't really have her interest in mind. And then of course Miss Montgomery and the necklace.. Enough said.. Read the book..
If the story line doesn't draw your attention, Lauren's faith will. She is courageous and compelling the way she acts. She lives her life with a strong faith intact and has to ultimately trust God. "Fading Starlite" is a great novel that will have you turning the pages to find out what happens next. Thank you to publishers for providing me a complimentary copy for my honest review. I give this book 5 stars.
