Radiant by Belinda Williams
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Lily is a 20-something emergency room nurse who had lived a pretty normal life until the day she was involved in a hit and run and ended up as a patient in her own ED. Though she recovered quickly, strange occurrences make her question her sanity and eventually everything she had ever believed. And then there is Leo, the only witness to the hit and run, who keeps popping up in Lily's life when she least expects him, and they forge a comfortable relationship, though Leo keeps Lily at a distance despite his obvious feelings for her.
The characters in this story were great. Lily was pretty level headed and – what's a good word for her? – safe perhaps. She lived a quiet life and stayed out of trouble. Her best friend, Kristi, lived a little more loudly and tried to bring Lily out of her shell. The two friends were a good combination, and Kristi brought a lot of fun to the story. The author did a great job creating her characters, as each one brought their own unique identity to the story. There was a good mix of personalities that made the story fun yet suspenseful.
Told mostly from Lily's point of view but switching occasionally to other characters, Radiant was an original story that was fast paced and full of action. I really enjoyed the writing and the author's story-telling abilities. There was a lot of mystery and some most unexpected discoveries near the end! Overall I enjoyed Radiant. The story wrapped up nicely with no cliffhanger but with enough of a tease to make you look forward to book two.
I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
