Review for A Madness of Sunshine by Nalini Singh

A Madness of Sunshine by Nalini Singh 

Publication: December 3rd 2019 by Berkley
New York Times bestselling author Nalini Singh welcomes you to a remote town on the edge of the world where even the blinding brightness of the sun can’t mask the darkness that lies deep within a killer…

On the rugged West Coast of New Zealand, Golden Cove is more than just a town where people live. The adults are more than neighbors; the children, more than schoolmates.
That is until one fateful summer—and several vanished bodies—shatters the trust holding Golden Cove together. All that’s left are whispers behind closed doors, broken friendships, and a silent agreement not to look back. But they can’t run from the past forever.

Eight years later, a beautiful young woman disappears without a trace, and the residents of Golden Cove wonder if their home shelters something far more dangerous than an unforgiving landscape.

It’s not long before the dark past collides with the haunting present and deadly secrets come to light. 

My Thoughts…

Ummm….WOW!   I have to start with that since it is the thought that just came coming back into my head with every word I read, every page I turned, and every chapter I started.   The thing that pulled me in from the beginning is the setting of New Zealand.  I dream of visiting there and I love to read books set there.   Golden Cove is a beautiful setting for this book.  I love the small, off the beaten path town.  The people there were neighbors, friends, and family.   The gossip ran wild but most importantly they stick up for each other, protect each other, and love each other.    

Anahera and Will’s interactions were interesting.    I was intrigued to see if they would become friends or foes.     I could feel the mutual attraction but I was not sure that would be enough for them.    Anahera knew the town and the town people and Will had the knowledge to enforce the law, follow the clues, and solve crimes.  Will had no prejudices since he was new to town where Anahera had feelings towards the town people.    

I have to say that I had ideas, I started at the beginning and paid close attention to who was talked about, what was said, and who said it.    I should have taken notes because I am sure I forgot some of the clues but I did have an idea who dun-it.  

A Madness of Sunshine is a book I’d recommend to anyone who loves small town mysteries.    Nalini Singh wrote a great book that pulled me in from the very beginning with her amazing setting and wonderful characters.
