"A great introduction to a new-to-me author!"

In 1948, young up-and-coming actress Darla Foster lands a role in a major studio picture, to be filmed at a remote Northern California lighthouse. Shortly after the film's release, Darla disappears, never to be seen again.

In 2008, along a remote stretch of a California highway, photographer Rebecca Burke sees a woman sitting in the backseat of her car—except she's traveling by herself. Later, she sees the same woman on the steps of Dragon Rock Lighthouse. But does the woman actually exist? If so, who is she?

Drawn to the lighthouse and to solving the mystery of the ghostly woman, Rebecca butts heads with L.A. attorney Matt Farralone, who is the lighthouse owner's attorney. Unfortunately for Rebecca, the owner doesn't want anyone anywhere near the lighthouse.

I thought this was a great book. Told in chapters alternating between 1948 and 2008, the author does a terrific job of telling Darla's story in parallel to Rebecca's solving the mystery of Darla's disappearance. Each chapter had just enough of a cliffhanger to make me want to read the next chapter, to see what happens next with Darla, or what Rebecca would do or discover next. The budding romance between Rebecca and Matt is sweet and adds another layer to the story, especially with the secret that is unraveled at the end of the book.

This is a well-written, captivating story. I will definitely be reading more from Anne Carter!

After being the backdrop for 1948’s critically acclaimed tragic romance, Cape Seduction, Northern California’s Dragon Rock Lighthouse was shuttered and abandoned for decades—and was the last place up-and-coming Hollywood starlet Darla Foster was seen alive. When photojournalist Rebecca Burke locks horns with Los Angeles attorney Matt Farralone while trying to gain access to the derelict off-shore beacon, she encounters the spirit of the sassy, once-promising Oscar-hopeful Foster, and uncovers a 60-year-old secret that sets her world on end. Told in time periods alternating between 1948 and 2008, CAPE SEDUCTION includes paranormal (ghostly) elements.
