Shadows at Sunset by Anne Stuart is just as dark and decadent as I expected from her. I enjoyed the murder mystery and the characters. The secondary romance was really a nice addition. Reminded me of the Team 16 books. The main romance seemed to be resolved way too abruptly but I still recommend the book.
A great romantic suspense read from one of the best... Anne Stuart writes compelling characters and hot romance.
Terrific story! I liked the way Anne Stuart entwined the main characters and the secondary characters. Good suspense!
Star crossed lovers, ghosts, revenge- this book has all the twists.
The house on Sunset Blvd 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 whats left of her wounded family.
I completely loved this book and I reccomend it to anyone.
Characters that fascinate you!
From Publishers Weekly
Stuart (Shadow Lover) crafts another steaming suspense novel with this tale of ghosts, revenge and lust in Southern California. Jilly Meyer single-handedly holds together one of L.A.'s most dysfunctional families, mothering her adult siblings, Dean and Rachel-Ann. Despite pressure from their villainous multimillionaire father, Jackson Meyer, Jilly won't abandon her siblings or their crumbling Sunset Boulevard mansion, which he wants to have demolished. La Casa de Sombras (House of Shadows) was the scene of a notorious Hollywood murder-suicide in the '50s, and glamorous ghosts still haunt the lonely place, seen only by fragile, recovering substance abuser Rachel-Ann. Enter Coltrane, a solitary, enigmatic, drop-dead gorgeous man who manages Jackson's legal affairs. Convinced Jackson murdered his mother years ago, Coltrane is bent on revenge, sabotaging Jackson's illegal business dealings and planning to seduce one of his daughters. The sexual tension between stubborn, long-legged Jilly and Coltrane is palpable, and the secondary romance between Rachel-Ann and her long-lost love is endearing. Incest, sex, multiple murders, sex, betrayal, sexAit's the usual enthralling mix fans expect from Stuart, arguably romantic suspense's most popular novelist.
I've read this book twice over the years and finished it again. It kept me spell bound as it did before. The house on Sunset was a house of secrets. discover them for yourself.
