About the Book
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 Hollywood ingénue 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.
About the Author
Kathryn Cushman is a graduate of Samford University with a degree in pharmacy. She is the acclaimed author of over a half-dozen novels, including " Leaving Yesterday" and" A Promise to Remember", which were both finalists for the Carol Award in Women's Fiction. Kathryn and her family make their home in Santa Barbara, California.
Having never read a book by Kathryn Cushman, I was intrigued by Fading Starlight. Especially from the cover art. The novel is about two women—Lauren Summers, a young and disgraced fashion designer, and an older woman, Charlotte Montgomery, a reclusive former Hollywood ingénue entangled in a murder case that was never resolved. But sometimes accusations are not always correct and maybe these two women can help each other out. I had a little bit of a hard time getting into the story, but the added bit of mystery twist intrigued me enough to keep reading. I would recommend this book to readers of contemporary fiction.
