In the Waning Light
Two decades after her sister’s brutal attack and murder, Meg Brogan has finally found happiness…or so it appears. A bestselling true-crime writer, Meg has money, fame, and a wealthy fiancé. But when a television-show host presses her to tackle the one story everyone claims she cannot write—the story of her own family’s destruction—her perfect life shatters.
Determined to fi...more
Nice save, nice.
For a minute I thought Loreth Anne White was going on my shitlist. The book almost ended in disaster. Almost.
And that would be a tragedy because that woman can write. Her writing is so atmospheric, so passionate, so intense, so angsty.
No one, and I mean no one writes romantic suspense better than her.
To say I am obsessed with this author is an understatement.
I love her thiiiiiiiiiiis much!
I really feel like I stumbled across something special with this one. Right from the start, I just knew this was going to be great. There was a dark undertone, a rainy and almost dreary setting, suspicious circumstances and characters that I instantly connected with. Not to mention, lost love and the potential for a second chance.
Meg is a popular true crime writer, but she’s never told the most important story. The story that has ultimately cost her her entire family. In a last ditch ef ...more
In the Waning Light was hard to put down, I finished it one day! It was an emotional, gripping, and suspenseful mystery; a second chance romance filled with longing, and hope.
The brutal murder of her sister, Sherry, tore Meg’s family to shreds twenty-two years ago, but Meg survived and from outward appearances, thrived. She’s a successful writer, detailing true crime with all the tragedy, and final justice that encompasses a murder solved. Inwardly, though, Meg has issues with intimacy ...more
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 in ...more

I'm all about second chances, and I enjoyed the whole book while reading, from page 1, couldn't read fast enough. It was all captivating, the place where it took place, the descriptions, the story, where everyone had something to hide, putting the past to rest, bring justice to light and of course the love. Meg and Blake, the forever-burning love...
"The ways in which we deceive ourselves . . . the stories we tell others to hide from our own truths . . ."
In the Waning Light is another great book by Loreth Anne White. She has a way of making the story exciting while making me doubt my suspects a bunch of times. Every time I was sure I knew who was the culprit, some twist made me look in a different direction.
The book starts with Meg Brogan, a famous author who writes true-crimes, going back to her home in Shelter Bay. She wants to write ...more
Loreth Anne White has such an intelligent way of telling a story. I've always thought her voice was unique and In the Waning Light proves that still to be true.
I'm not going to speak much about the actual story – the blurb gives a good description – as it would give away too many secrets t ...more
In the Waning Light is a mystery with some romance woven into the plot. I liked how this novel explored how people deal with grief and how it is different for everyone. I li ...more

In the Waning Light is a wonderful, dark, mystery with romance. It has all the elements for a 5 star read, an excellent cast of would be baddies that keep you guessing to the very end and a second chance romance.

The story itself was an interesting mystery. There were a couple slow spots but I enjoyed the story and really couldn't have guessed who the killer was until the last c ...more
So, I started this book and became bored, read 3 or 4 books, then decided to finish this one. I’m so glad I did. Even though the author is so long winded and tells you about stupid things that aren’t necessary it was a great story.
It was a story about a murder that took place 22 years ago and the sister came back to town to tell the story and all the people who didn’t want that to happen. There were some fabulous characters in this book, and some really ...more
Loreth Anne White's standalone novels have been impressive so far and this is no different, even if it's truly hard to li ...more
Unlike her other book 'A Dark Lure' I found that the character development did not distract from the plot. This time around you learn about the characters as the plot begins to thicken. This was a pleasant surprise as I had my doubts when starting this book. Meg, is portrayed as somewhat of an enigma. Her life in Seattle is turned upside down when the demons from her past won't allow her to commit to the future. In desperation she flees back to Shelter Bay ...more
What I didn't enjoy so much was the longer separation before the second chance romance. Almost a quarter of a century is along time. I appreciated the fact that the h went on to have fulfilling life, professionally, re ...more

Meg is going to write Sherry's story and finally put the ghosts of her past to rest. But while her other books are about stories that already have an ending, this story is not so clear cut.

I liked the characters Meg and Blake. They were interesting. The romance part was not as prevalent as the mystery portion of the book, which was okay with me because it made the romance part better not being rushed and forced. It was a gradual connection between the two. There was a sex scene, nicely written not erotica.
I didn't care for Blake's kid too much. He was somewhat of a brat the pouting wa ...more
