    After receiving medical treatment in Europe, Lily returns home to an apparent suicide murder as Brooke's mother and her father are dead. Unable to cope, Brooke flees FoxHaven leaving Lily to cope with the aftermath. Now years later Brooke has returned to FoxHaven only to see the intimacy between her “sister” and the man she loves, but left behind.

    Best-selling author Katherine Stone usually provides her fans with a pearl of a novel, but her latest tale seems disjointed as if the wonderful writer could not decide between a contemporary triangle and a fantasy romance. The story line of STAR LIGHT, STAR BRIGHT contains several intriguing subplots, but the two prime themes never merge in spite of three strong and delightful charcaters. The contemporary aspects with its mystery and relationship drama is a powerhouse, but the fantasy elements remain out of place and never fully integrate. Though not one of her brighter lights, the audience will still enjoy Ms. Stone's latest tale.
