Meet Me at the Lighthouse by Mary Jayne Baker - Book Review & Giveaway

Amazon USA Amazon UK Goodreads

Review by Suze

After a difficult breakup Bobbie is now living with her twin sister Jess. She's having a peaceful and quiet life until she meets Ross. Bobbie used to like Ross a lot, but they lost contact. Now Ross is offering her his uncle's lighthouse for a symbolic amount. It's her birthday and Bobbie is ready for a challenge, so she decides to buy it. She has an even better idea though, they should purchase it together instead and open a music venue, which is something Ross has been dreaming of for years. Will they be able to pull it off?

Ross gave Bobbie her first kiss and the butterflies in her stomach that were there back then are still present. However, Ross isn't as unattached as Bobbie would have liked him to be. He's a man with a lot of baggage and Bobbie has to decide if she can handle taking this. Will getting involved with him jeopardize their lighthouse project or can they remain professional? What will happen when secrets of the past are coming to the surface, will Bobbie and Ross be strong enough to survive whatever comes their way?

Meet Me at the Lighthouse is a wonderful story. Bobbie is a fantastic person. She's smart, knows how to get things done and she's sweet. She used to like Ross a lot and sparks keep flying between them. Ross is kindhearted and easy going and he's a talented musician. They get along fabulously, but they also have a project to take care of and being involved personally and professionally can be a challenge. It was fascinating to see what would happen between them. I loved their playful banter, great chemistry and close friendship, but things aren't as uncomplicated as they seem, which gives the story a nice layer of depth. There are things Ross can't share and finding out more about his secrets kept me glued to the pages.

Mary Jayne Baker has a fabulous easy flowing writing style that mesmerized me from the very beginning, I just had to keep reading. I loved the way she describes the lighthouse and everything that has to be done to turn it into a music venue. It was fun to read about the ups and downs of that process and the amazing community spirit put a big smile on my face. I love heartwarming stories and Meet Me at the Lighthouse has the exact right feelgood factor. I really liked this book and highly recommend it.

Advice

If you love stories about second chances in love combined with beautiful settings Meet Me at the Light House is an absolute must-read.
