Format: Kindle Edition
I haven't read anything by Cynthia Ellingsen before but I was intrigued by the title and description of this book. I have a real affinity for all things concerning the sea, so the lure of a story set around a lighthouse and a seafaring community was very appealing.

Dawn manages to lose her job and her boyfriend in rather quick succession. It did feel slightly unbelievable when she lost her job but that was the only minor point in the whole book where I lost a little belief in the plot. I realised that it was only a small plot device for giving a compelling enough reason for the main character to move back to her hometown. After that, the rest of the read was plain sailing.

It was easy to feel sorry for Dawn as she struggled with moving back to her hometown of Starlight Cove and felt opposition from some of the local community because they were wary of her reasons for buying the lighthouse. Some people disliked her just because of who she was related to because her late great grandfather had been branded a thief and considered guilty of piracy. So it was easy to like Dawn against all the opposition.

This book has just the right amount of romance but not enough to detract from the main story which is to discover what really happened to a treasure hoard of silver from a century-old shipwreck and to clear the name of Dawn's late great grandfather.

It is a really good adventure story for grown-ups and I sat up late at night just to finish this off because I could not wait to see how it all ended. I loved the journey of Dawn's relationship with her parents, with forging new friendships and a new love interest. She went from being pretty uptight and reserved to letting herself trust other people and live a little.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a Great Story! 5 April 2017
By Susan Engle - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
It kept me up late. It kept me reading during the day when I should have been outside. The story is rich with many different plots and life lessons for us.

5.0 out of 5 stars Refreshing! 12 April 2017
By pojo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I normally read another genre in my readings, but flipping through Kindle, this book caught my eye. Refreshing in the manner of loyalty of a small town, love of a family and history of both family, a small town and a lighthouse. Enjoy!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun and interesting summer read 7 April 2017
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Interesting premise of renovating a lighthouse with a dash of mystery thrown in. I would love to visit a town like Starlight Cove either in person or in another book. Since the story is set in Michigan, maybe she should write about a fudge shop! :)

By Christina K. - Published on Amazon.com

This was a great romance and adventure book. I'm glad Dawn got her romance like she wanted. I loved Kailyn and Carter, they should have their own book.
