It’s been a long six months without a new release from Nazarea Andrews, but now she’s back. And you don’t want to miss it. Check out my review of This Dark Light.
When their business partner and friend Scott dies, brothers Austin and Ezra retreat from the world, to regroup, to write a book, to grieve. They return to Lightpointe, a tiny village where Scott grew up, and take up residence in an abandoned lighthouse.
While Austin is drawn into the eccentric seaside village they live on the outskirts of, Ezra loses himself in the pain of his best friend’s death. He wanders the beach and their lighthouse, stuck in his grief and the life he left behind, until a handsome stranger on the beach intrigues him. He strikes up a friendship with the eccentric Milo, a quiet distraction as his brother begins dating again.
Both Austin and Ezra are falling in love. But as Austin learns more about the village, it becomes clear that Milo is hiding things about his past.
And losing someone else might destroy Ezra.
I think over the years I’ve read just about every book by this author, and in reviews, I always spout about how versatile she is…well, she’s done it again. This book is like nothing she’s released before. It was so powerful, so emotional…I swear, my heart was heavy almost the whole time I was reading. What a book!!
The prologue gave me shivers straight away, and at various points throughout the book my skin broke out in goosebumps all over again. It was one of those books that sucks you in and has hoping and praying for HEA’s for all the characters because of how much they’ve been through.
Nazarea Andrews put her heart and soul into This Dark Light. A book like this could only be written by someone who knows what it is to lose someone, and I felt it all…every ounce of pain and grief. Every struggle and fight to overcome it all. Wow. A truly stunning, heart-breaking but hopeful story about finding the light in the dark, and learning to live after loss.

Nazarea Andrews (N to almost everyone) is an avid reader and tends to write the stories she wants to read. Which means she writes everything from zombies and dystopia to contemporary love stories. When not writing, she can most often be found driving her kids to practice and burning dinner while she reads, or binging watching TV shows on Netflix. N loves chocolate, wine, and coffee almost as much as she loves books, but not quite as much as she loves her kids. She lives in south Georgia with her husband, daughters, spoiled cat and overgrown dog. She is the author of World Without End series, Neverland Found, Edge of the Falls, and The University of Branton Series. Stop by her twitter (@NazareaAndrews) and tell her what fantastic book she should read next.
