#Excerpt on tour THE LIGHT FADES by @CatherineWest w/ @PrismBookTours #Giveaway #LightFadesTour

On Tour with Prism Book Tours

As the Light Fades
By Catherine West
Women's Fiction
Paperback & ebook, 362 Pages
September 10th 2019 by KDP

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.

“What in heaven’s name happened here?” Evy quickstepped it toward them in high heels, sequins on her teal blouse sparkling, a bright pink silk scarf flapping behind her.
“Elizabeth?” “Hi, Evy.” Liz pulled her cell phone from the pocket of her jeans. “I was walking the dogs and this . . . happened. We should call the police. She doesn’t have a license and the vehicle might be stolen.”
“No, please, no cops!” The girl’s eyes flared. “And it’s not stolen.”
Evy scanned the surrounding area and her garden, what was left of it, eyes widening at the sight of the crushed rose bushes. She took a slow breath and set a steely gaze on the girl. “Are you responsible for this tragedy, young lady?”
The girl stepped back a bit. “I guess.”
“You guess. Are you hurt?”
“You, Elizabeth? She didn’t run you over along with my poor roses?” Evy’s thick eyelashes batted dramatically and Liz squelched a smile.
“Fortunately, I was on the other side of the street. She swerved to avoid a cat.”
“Yes!” The girl nodded vehemently. “I swear that’s what happened! I’m a good driver. I wouldn’t—”
“You can’t be a good driver if you don’t have a license!” Liz sputtered. She caught herself before totally going off on the girl. She could see the kid was shaken and a little scared, despite her bravado. “Do you even have a learner’s permit?”
“Uh . . .”
“Just as I thought. You know—”
“A moment, Elizabeth.” Evy held up a hand to Liz, then turned back to the girl. “Name?”
“Mia Stone.”
