Romantic Suspense

In the Waning Light by Loreth Anne White

In the Waning Light
True crime writer Meg Brogan decides to return to her childhood home in Shelter Bay, Oregon after an 18-year absence. She’s going to write the story of her sister Sherry’s murder to bring her own closed-off emotions to rest. However, rather than write about a case that was supposedly solved, Meg finds that she’s resurrecting more than her own emotions…possibly a case that was never truly solved.

This story effectively combined mystery, suspense, romance and atmosphere to create an extremely interesting tale. Meg is a complicated, layered woman who unknowingly disrupted many lives just by coming back to town. Her high school love, Blake Sutton, stirs up dormant feelings even she found surprising. Their quest for the truth surrounding her sister’s death was both uncomplicated and puzzling at the same time, which made it different from most fare in this genre.

I also loved the strong sense of place in the story setting. I could feel the weather as it was just as important an element as the characters and events. The descriptions of the town, its sounds and smells, were vivid images as I felt transported to the place. This is as much a lovely story as it is mysterious. I very much appreciate its difference.

  1. This sounds interesting, Jonetta. Though the plot sort of reminds of an NR book, I can’t remember the title as it has been some years since I read it, but I liked it. I’ll give this a whirl as soon as I finish my stack of ARCs 🙂
