HOUSE OF SHADOWSThe house on Sunset Boulevard has witnessed everything from the infamous murder suicide of a '50s starlet and her lover to the drug fueled commune in the '60s to the anguish of its present owner Jilly Meyer who is struggling to preserve the house and what's left of her First off thanks to Lady Danielle for this recommendationShadows at Sunset has something in it for everyone Technically it's categorized as romantic suspense but oh let me tell you it's so much than just suspense Stuart takes the paranormal leap in this one by giving us a ghost story within the main story and then gives us an excellent secondary romance on the side to boot Only a skilled author can give you three separate stories within a book that's 376 pages and do it well Anne Stuart is definitely a skilled author that does just thatThe focus of this book definitely centers around Coltrane Revenge is his motive as he seeks to bring down the man who killed his mother He is a ruthless con artist and I absolutely adored him Jilly is his love interest and also the daughter of the man he plans on destroying In typical Stuart fashion this is not a man who woos Jilly with wine and roses He is dangerous mysterious and up until the very end stays this wayJilly's fragile older sister also has a story to tell in what may be my favorite part of this book The secondary romance in this book although significantly less in page number packs a huge emotional punch The secondary romance was so beautiful and unexpected that I had to re read it several times before putting the book away today I will never forget itA good old ghost story rounds out the trifecta as we meet a deceased couple Brenda de Lorilland and her lover Ted Hughes We learn about these ghosts throughout this book and they play a significant role as towards the end all three plot lines are seamlessly interwoven togetherI needed a great book to read and no one can deliver like Anne Stuart when she is on her game Shadows at Sunset showcases her amazing talent and I loved every chapter page paragraph sentence and word This is a must for Stuart fans and a great recommendation for all fans of dark heroes
