At a lavish estate in Mercy Falls, California, Addie Sullivan finds danger—and quite possibly the love of her life.
Growing up as the lightkeeper’s daughter on a remote island at the turn of the century, Addie Sullivan has lived a hardscrabble life. When a long-lost and wealthy relative finds her and enlists her to work as a governess at a lavish estate, she hopes to discover the truth of her heritage. But at Eaton Hall, nothing is as it seems. Not the idyllic family she hoped for, not the child she was hired to help, not even the aloof man she’s immediately attracted to. Soon she must turn for help to Lieutenant John North, a man who views her with suspicion.
As Addie edges closer to the truth, danger threatens even as her romance with John blossoms and together they unravel a decades-old mystery. As Addie faces down her enemy, she discovers that faith in her one true Father is all she needs.
What I thought:
I love a good mystery story. Colleen Coble is one of the great mystery tellers in Christian fiction that I like to read. Her newest release, The Lightkeeper's Daughter, is a mix of mystery,history and faith.
The romantic part of the story is good and the characters compliment each other. The best part of the story, is the mystery. Colleen's mysterious part of her stories are wonderful because she has the ability to keep me guessing. I never can figure her the who-done-it's out until the very last page. To me, that is the best kind of story (when I can't figure it out!) because I am usually able to figure the who-done-it's on the first page!
I recommend this book as both a mystery,and christian romance book.I can't wait for the next book in this series!
Good job, Ms. Coble!
