Publisher's Summary

Dawn Conners's parents are famous for finding historic treasures, but she has a knack for losing things - her job, her boyfriend, and now, her reputation. Thanks to a mud-slinging exposé, Dawn's late great-grandfather is assumed guilty of stealing silver from a century-old shipwreck. Hoping to clear his name, Dawn returns to Starlight Cove, her idyllic hometown on Lake Michigan, where the doomed vessel sleeps beneath the beam of a ramshackle lighthouse.

Her plan: remodel and sell the lighthouse while untangling the perplexing family mystery. Neither task is easy, especially once her well-meaning parents and the quirky locals - including nautical researcher and Starlight Cove's most eligible bachelor, Kip Whittaker - get involved. Despite their attraction, Dawn is reluctant to trust Kip, or any of the close-knit townsfolk. But as she pieces together the truth, Dawn's once-shuttered heart opens up. And if she's willing, the lighthouse might guide her to a place she never expected to find, where the past entwines with a bright new beginning.

    Story
    "Good ocean town setting"
    Any additional comments?

    I understand the writer wanted to establish the main character as angry-ish and aloof from people. It was still hard to listen to. But I liked the setting and she brought some originality to the treasure and map theme so I kept listening. As the story evolved, I was glad that the main character lost some of her prickles and warmer and believable interactions with her parents and friends came into the story. The characters didn't have particular depth but the plot had some freshness and surprises and the main character was moved through realistic stages of struggle and self-insight that was positive and supportive to the reader since most of us have these things in our own lives. So, overall, I did enjoy this book.

    "Great story , completely entertaining!"

    Not sure how I even tripped across this book, but boy am I glad I did! First I was excited that it was 11 hours long, I love the long ones, and of course if they are entertaining!
    This book had a little bit of everything, a beautiful small town on the coast of MI, the fixing up of a Lighthouse, a wonderful bit of history, a treasure hunt, love, and so much more!
    This is well worth the credit for all you easy listeners out there that just want to listen to a feel good book and be throughly entertained!!
    Late Rudd does a great job narrating and I will definitely look for more books by Cynthia Ellingsen.

    Story
    "Michigan <3"

    This book is wonderful! I have lived on Lake Michigan my whole life. The way the author described the feelings that come with my Great Lake, combined with the energy of living in a small tourist town made my heart flutter. I began reading this book last night, and was sad when I had to go to sleep because I didn't want to put it down. I'll be sending a copy of this book to my mom. To the author: thank you!

    "Cheesy but good"

    I wanted to read a romantic story set near the ocean , with a little mystery involved (and not too sappy). This story fit the bill.

    "Totally enthralling"

    From the first chapter to the last, I thoroughly enjoyed this book! It was fun to read and the action was just enough to keep me thinking about what might come next. I especially appreciated the narrator. She was able to provide different, pleasing intonation to the variety of voices in the story. I will look for more of the books from this author. You will be pleased with this one!

    "Delightful, fun, light, romantic cozy mystery"

    To the extent I have a usual listening fare The Lighthouse Keeper is not a likely novel for me to read. However, this book is so delightful that I'm happy I selected it. It is a story of family, family history, love, romance, renewal, discovery and a mystery of lost treasure set in a small town on the shore of Lake Michigan. Kate Rudd narrates beautifully.

    "light romantic mystery"

    Book was a great summer read. I really enjoyed the lightheartedness of it along with the mystery elements. I always enjoy reading books set along the coast during the summer. This book fit the bill. It was well written with the right amount of mystery and romance. I would highly recommend it.

    "Entertaining story line but has some flaws."

    The characters are likable but there was one (or two) many times explaining her trust issues. It made me fast forward a couple of times. The voice sounded system generated often.

    Story
    "Fun but predictable"

    The mystery story is fun and works better than the romance. The romance is predictable but still enjoyable. Can't really understand why the female protagonist is so uncommunicative if she is supposed to be in love. She turns away from her love interest without any rhyme or reason to create the rift to be repaired as a happy ending. Seems forced. Narrator Kate Rudd is first rate.

    "C-"

    Story was so-so, reader was very stilted which I found very distracting. Not sure where these fab reviews are coming from.
