Life is dangerous. No one survives it. Enora Andressen makes a series of mind-blowing discoveries when her friend disappears.
Actress Enora Andressen is catching up with her ex-neighbour, Evelyn Warlock, who’s recently retired to the comely East Devon seaside town of Budleigh Salterton. The peace, the friendship of strangers and the town’s prestigious literary festival . . . Evelyn loves them all.
Until the September evening when her French neighbour, Christianne Beaucarne, disappears. Enora has met this woman. The two of them have bonded. But what Enora discovers over the anguished months to come will put sleepy Budleigh Salterton on the front page of every newspaper in the land
Limelight starts off feeling like it will be simple, and quickly turns into a twisty-turny, conspiracy mystery. The story itself is very intriguing and keeps you on the edge of your seat.
I haven’t read the previous books in the series, and think this works fine as a standalone. The characters are well written. Thy felt realistic and their places in the story were necessary to drive the plot forward.
There are times when the characters did get a little confusing and I had trouble keeping up with them.
Overall, a great suspense and worth the read.
