"Anahera Rawiri left New Zealand at twenty-one, fleeing small-town poverty and the ghosts of her childhood with no plans to look back. But eight years later, she returns, seeking familiarity as respite from the shattered remains of her new life. And despite the changes brought on by a bump in tourism--the shiny new welcome sign at the town line and a decidedly less shiny new police presence--Golden Cove appears much as it ever was: a small settlement on the savage West Coast of the South Island, populated by all the remembered faces and set against a backdrop of lush greenery, jagged cliffs, and crashing waves. Detective Will Gallagher knows all about ghosts; his own chased him out of a promising career in Christchurch, landing him as the sole cop in a quaint town where his most pressing concerns are petty theft and the occasional drunk. When Golden Cove resident Miri Hinewai goes out for a run and fails to return, Will finds himself heading up a missing person's search that rapidly escalates into an official investigation after this case is connected with similar ones from the past. As an outsider, Will begins to rely on Anahera's knowledge of the area and its residents to help him delve into Golden Cove's secrets, and to determine whether it shelters something far more dangerous than just an unforgiving landscape"--… (mais)

This book reminds me of early Nora, which is a very good thing. The twists were a little easy to see coming but I really liked the leads and the book's atmosphere. I especially LOVED one part about Ana and a family member. Too often we see forgiveness above all being a theme in books and I was ecstatic this wasn't one of those. Another thing I really enjoyed were the female friendships both old and new. ( )

Not at all what I was expecting from Nalini Singh -- this is a realistic, modern thriller with no paranormal elements, but I really enjoyed it. The characters and the setting are compelling (there was a little too much about how the landscape will kill you -- not that it's wrong, it was just an extremely repetitive theme). Loved the New Zealand setting. Very effectively hooked me into caring about the character who vanishes. Great emotional drama. Still have no idea why the madness has anything to do with sunshine? Is it a sunshine coast thing? ( )

I love a book that immerses you so deeply in the setting it’s like taking a mini vacation to a place you’ve never been. In “A Madness of Sunshine” Nalini Singh transports the reader to the rural coasts of New Zealand, where you must be careful not to wander off the trails, and the stark, harsh beauty of the landscape comes off the page with her exquisite writing. A girl has gone missing while running. In such a small community, everyone turns out to search.

I quite enjoyed the two main characters, as this was a slow building sort of mystery/thriller a touch of romance that took the time to immerse us in background as we slowly unraveled clues. A true character driven piece, I found myself absorbed from beginning to end, and while some of the outcomes I saw coming for a while, a few also caught me by surprise. I’ve read Nalini Singh’s paranormal romance and romances and enjoyed them immensely, and this was a delight as well.

Please excuse typos/name misspellings. Entered on screen reader.

widowed woman returns to her small town roots, finding some things have changed (new police officer), some things have not (incurable neighborhood gossip), and that no one really knows anyone as well as they think. ( )

Sunshine.
That's what she was.
Sunshine.
Bright. A thing of life. A thing that could burn.
And this heart, it beat only for her.
It could murder for her.
For Love. For Sunshine.
