My Sister’s Books Review #83

The Color of Light

By: Karen White


Jillian Parrish’s life has been turned upside down. After her divorce, she packs up her daughter and drives to Pawleys Island, South Carolina, where she was happiest during her childhood. Pregnant, and driving at night, her nerves are on end, when her daughter unexpectedly screams, calling out a name, Jillian hasn’t heard in years, Lauren. Lauren was her best friend, and she mysteriously disappeared, never to be heard from again. Their friend Linc was accused and run off the Island, but Jillian soon finds him back in town. Together, will they be able to heal their wounds and discover the truth about Lauren’s disappearance?

Karen White’s majestic writing brings beautiful Pawleys Island to life. The gripping storyline will keep readers guessing until the very end. This romantic suspense book has a small amount of paranormal activity running through it, which gives readers of all genres something to enjoy. The Color of Light was my first experience reading any of Karen White’s writing, but this intense beach read has me craving more.


I always love reading books set in a familiar area, like my hometown or a place I have visited. I think it is because I am able to insert “me” into the story. 🙂 What about you? Do you enjoy reading books set in a familiar place or do you prefer fictional settings?
