Following the death of her dominating mother, Anne Fontaine decides to leave the bayou to reconnect with her estranged half-sister, Adrienne Deschanel. Her hope is to forge a relationship with Adrienne that was not possible when her mother was alive. Secretly, she also hopes to find out if her extraordinary supernatural talents are shared by anyone else.

When Nicolas Deschanel gets wind of Anne’s presence, he suspects that she is one of many con artists after his sister’s money. Not knowing that her story is true, he engages in a game of cat-and-mouse with her, deciding to have a little fun.

Eventually, circumstances find both of them back at the Deschanel family seat, Ophélie, where secrets and stories come to life

 This quaint little story is very attention grabbing! While reading it, I completely forgot it was a short read. I was so lost in the story that once I had reached the end, I was craving more! The Fontaine’s and the Deschanel’s are very interesting and intriguing characters. It is very easy to get lost in this story. It is even easier to find yourself wanting more! The author knows how to captivate and capture your attention quickly and keep it. I LOVE that about her. The storyline itself is very easy to follow and very captivating. I would definitely recommend that everyone read this story. Weather your preferred genre or not. I truly believe that anyone could easily fall in love with this story and these characters! Please, Please, Please keep writing Sarah! I absolutely want to read more! Consider me hooked!

Just wonderful! This short novelette is perfect. It gives you just want you need, no more, no less and doesn’t leave to floundering around for more story, and wishing there way less story. Sarah weaves a perfect amount of story here, and leaves you feeling content and having a whole new outlook. Not many authors can go back and craft a story around a different character and make it tie in as beautifully as Sarah did with this one. If you are a fan of the previous books, you’ll have no trouble loving this too, and if you haven’t read them yet, pick this one up, give it a go, and if you like it, you’ll love the rest :)

The details that really highlight Anna is this book will be changing a lot of opinions of Anne, because it definitely changed mine. Anne has now really become a full and complete character in her own right and we really got an amazing chance to understand her in this short novelette.

Sarah’s writing style as always is well organized, interesting and especially unique. She writes as though she herself has lived it, with such dedication and drive, that you believe that the world before your eyes in real. You believe Sarah was there, on the sidelines, watching and writing, in order to bring these stories to us. They are wonderfully emotional, without being too overwhelming, and they are incredibly detailed without being too over the top or cluttered. Sarah has a perfect style and is able to captivate the reader right away, and sweep them off to her world, and then we never want to return to ours.

Just because it’s shorter doesn’t mean it’s any less amazing then all of Sarah’s other works, this one stands as an amazing insight into a character, a relationship, and it deepens are understanding of the character and heightens our appreciation of the works that came before shedding more light on the text we’ve previously read and showing us it in a new way. Sarah is definitely an author to watch, The House of Crimson and Clover series is definitely one of my favorites right now, and I can’t wait to see where it goes next! :)

Being new to Sarah Cradit’s novels, I wasn’t sure what to expect out of this novelette. Would I be able to follow along? Would it hold my interest since I wasn’t familiar with the characters or storyline? I was and it did!
For such a short story Beyond Dusk: Anne delivers a big punch. The author paints such a vivid picture in your mind. You have absolutely no problem visualizing the beautiful homes and opulent gardens. The characters were rich and complex. The writing style was beautiful. You’re drawn in right away and left wanting nothing but more.

This may be the first novel I have had the pleasure of reading by Sarah Cradit, but I assure you it will not be the last!
