Publisher's Summary

Samantha's life is good, mostly. She loves her father deeply, but even daddy's little girl finds the life of a military brat trying. Despite being the new girl too often, she soldiers on. Her mom could not. She lives for his life but now wants one of her own. Helpless but to stand witness, Samantha's life is once again packed up and shipped off, this time without her dad. 
She now resides in the remote town of Columbus Cove. Saving her from the debilitating isolation is the cove's latest resident, Channing Ashford. It's as if he has stepped off the cover of a romance novel and into the sleepy little town. He is charming and handsome and Samantha's sole focus. The reformed drifter re-energizes her, and they find sanctuary within each other. 
When a shocking murder claims more than one victim, the couple is blindsided. They find themselves embroiled in an investigation that threatens their newly found happiness. All their reserves of sanctuary are spent as the secrets that lay buried beneath the unpaved roads of Columbus Cove come to light.

Awesome book

Would you consider the audio edition of Between the Shades of Light and Dark to be better than the print version?

The audio performance was awesome -- so made me feel like I was there in the middle of the story. Her writing is good - and is well portrayed in the audible version.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Between the Shades of Light and Dark?

This books is about small town life and romance. Samantha is a young girl who's father is in the military and as a result they move around a lot. She hates being the new girl as a result of the moves. When she meets the man of her dreams, she gets a feeling that she has never experienced before. I don't write spoilers - so I will stop by saying you need to experience this book!!!

Which character – as performed by Sarah Grant – was your favorite?


Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Having been an air force brat myself -- I know exactly where Samantha was coming from.

Any additional comments?

I was given a copy of this book for an honest review.

Another great story

What made the experience of listening to Between the Shades of Light and Dark the most enjoyable?

You identify with the characters with a really great narrator which happens to be the case in this story. She almost sounds like someone you know and the use of the accents which is like mine made a stronger connection to this book.

Any additional comments?

I won this book through the authors contest and it took me some time to get to it but I'm glad I did because I didn't see the ending coming. This book is about small town life and a budding young romance. I grew up in small town America so I had a strong connection to this book, characters, and the town folks. If you want a great book to sit and relax to this is the book for you.

A gripping mystery with a twist of romance.

What did you like most about Between the Shades of Light and Dark?

Kathleen Lopez does a great job creating the atmosphere of Columbus Cove. It feels like somewhere I’d love to visit! Samantha is a realistic and likable heroine.

What did you like best about this story?

The author creates a lot of building tension after the murder and she also does a terrific job revealing only little clues at a time. The twists are fun and it's not predictable. I cannot wait to see more from this author as this was great.

What about Sarah Grant’s performance did you like?

Great voice. I liked the pace the narration sets and it really matches the story. Really good.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes. I did in fact listen to it in one sitting.
