I would like to be dropped into Brenda Whiteside¿s SLEEPING WITH THE LIGHTS ON and play it out until the end. I would love to be the heroine Sandra Holiday. After two failed marriages and countless relationships, Sandra thinks she¿s met the man to end her years of less than perfect choices; choices that left her single and broke.Carson Holiday, a Las Vegas country crooner with swoon-inducing good looks, spent his adult life pursuing a recording contract and love, never holding on to either. After eighteen years, Carson Holiday drops back into Sandra¿s life, reigniting an attraction they can¿t deny. When Carson reappears, Sandra must choose again.There is a certain scene where I would,as Sandra, like to enter, and follow it all the way through to the end of the book. Here¿s the scene:Pulling me around, we stopped, facing each other. My head said run like hell, but my legs wouldn¿t respond. Mushy from wine or Carson and moonlight. I couldn¿t be sure which.¿Have lunch with me tomorrow, darlin¿.¿ His fingers slipped from mine to gingerly brush along my forearm. The moonlight caught in his eyes. ¿Another hour of your time with a long lost friend?¿¿Yes.¿ My voice went all husky and come-hither. I wanted to kick myself for being so easy.¿Good.¿ Grasping my hand again, he led me toward the door. ¿What¿s the address of your office?¿I struggled to shake off the moon shadows and to remember where I worked. Once inside the building, I took a scrap of paper from my purse and wrote the address.¿I¿ll walk you to your door and say goodnight,¿ he said, tucking the scrap of paper in his pocket. ¿Unless you want to have me in for a goodnight drink.¿I didn¿t answer. If he¿d only known the extent of my uncertainty at that moment, a little persistence might have made me cave.¿Okay, then¿¿ His mouth gaped.I followed his bewildered look to my apartment door.Just one great scene of many that kept me spell-bound through out the Book.

Reviewed by Ellen Hogan for Readers Favorite Sandra thinks that her future is wrapped up in Wesley. That is until he asks her to be his personal assistant. Wesley's tenant Eva tries to warn Sandra away from Wesley, and Sandra begins to think that Eva is stalking her. Then Sandra's ex Carson comes to town and her feelings for him become all confused. Meanwhile, her sister Abby's marriage hits a rocky place, and Sandra wants to help her sister through it. The true reason for Carson’s appearance, a mysterious secret admirer and Eva throw Sandra on a path of dangerous surprises. "Sleeping with the Lights On" has lots of quirky characters: Wesley the rich sort of boyfriend, his tenant Eva and his ex-girlfriend Azalea each lends a new facet to the storyline. It was fun watching Sandra and Carson’s relationship develop. "Sleeping with the Lights On" is a wild ride that fans of romance will want to take.

Rating: 4 Stars I could immerse myself in the ambiance she created and the ending was a real surprise!! --Night Owl Romance, July 2010 Rating: 4 Cups Brenda Whiteside writes with a voice that keeps the reader coming back for more. I recommend Sleeping with the Lights On for the hair-raising suspense as well as the melt your heart romance. --Coffee Time Romance and More, July 2010 Cheers to Whiteside for writing a heroine who exists outside of conventional romance novels in terms of age and marital status...novel is written with a pleasantly light sense of humor... --RT Book Reviews, June 2010 "a page turner...characters come instantly alive, and their lives intertwine seamlessly in this fast paced romance..." --Ana Morgan, The Muse, June 2010
