I read a lovely cozy book called A Bittersweet Surprise as part of my Kindle Unlimited membership and when I finished it I realized that the author (Cynthia Ellingsen) had created a few books based in Starlight Cove so I decided to read another one!
The Lighthouse Keeper was written before A Bittersweet Surprise so there were a couple of things that I already knew would happen, but that didn't deflect from the feel-good feeling this novel gave me. This certainly isn't the novel for you if you want to have to think hard about things or get caught up in some psychological thriller. This book is like a comforting blanket on a cold winter's evening when you just want to be left alone.
The main heroine of the book is the daughter of treasure hunters and when her life gets thrown a couple of curveballs she decides to bid on a lighthouse. As you can probably tell from the title of the novel her bid wins and she moves to Starlight Cove to restore the town's lighthouse.
Her parents have settled down in Starlight Cove and are running an antique shop there, she also meets some of the town's residents along with some not-so-nice non-resident treasure hunters. Did I mention that there was a long-lost treasure to be found too?
While she endeavours to try her hand at a little matchmaking between her first friend in Starlight Cove and one of the hunky Henderson brothers she also finds herself falling a little in love herself. As with any romance, there's a little bump in the road which has her overthinking things (a trait I can totally relate to myself!).
With The Lighthouse Keeper, Cynthia Ellingsen has once again shown how well she can create her characters as I can totally relate to a few in this book, just as I did in the other book. Now I need to grab the only other book I can see in the Starlight Cove series to see if it's as good. An extra bonus is that all three of these are free to read with a Kindle Unlimited account!
