A Madness of Sunshine

New York Times bestselling author Nalini Singh welcomes you to a remote town on the edge of the world where even the blinding brightness of the sun can’t mask the darkness that lies deep within a killer…

On the rugged West Coast of New Zealand, Golden Cove is more than just a town where people live. The adults are more than neighbors; the children, more than schoolmates.

That is until one fateful summer—and several vanished bodies—shatters the trust holding Golden Cove together. All that’s left are whispers behind closed doors, broken friendships, and a silent agreement not to look back. But they can’t run from the past forever.

Eight years later, a beautiful young woman disappears without a trace, and the residents of Golden Cove wonder if their home shelters something far more dangerous than an unforgiving landscape.

It’s not long before the dark past collides with the haunting present and deadly secrets come to light.

Threads + Thoughts (threadsplus) | 23 comments I'm hoping to finish up my listen of The Search by tonight so I can get a few chapters in. I'll be reading via audiobook. With my work schedule at the moment that the only way I can get in reading time.

ShoSho  (shoshost) | 12263 comments The spoiler above is chapter 9


Threads + Thoughts (threadsplus) | 23 comments Just getting started. Loving that they used a Kiwi narrator (or one really good at accents) and the imagery as she’s driving back into her home town is beautifully done.


Loriidae Yes the narration is very good. It will be interesting to see how an American audience responds to the accent, as I imagine it would take some getting used to.


Loriidae Chapter 1: The opening paragraph to the novel is very powerful. Sets Anahera up as a strong woman.

Chapter 5: (view spoiler)

Short chapters - easy style, already enjoying it more than her contemporaries.

Done - sorry, I didn't realise that was a spoiler. I meant it as more of a comment about the general way it was handled throughout the book instead of referencing a specific plot point.

Oh yes! That paragraph not only set her up as a strong woman but also predisposes the reader to feel sympathetic towards her.
