The Lightkeeper’s Ball

Olivia Stewart is trying to find out more about her sister’s death, not believing that she drown because she is terrified of water. When she almost dies when someone tries to push her into the ocean, she decides to use her proper name, Lady Devonworth, to find out about her sister and her sister’s fiancé, who could turn out to be her own. Can she trust Harrison or did he have a part in her sister’s death? Will love bloom anyway?
At first, I didn’t expect this book to be very good after a handful of average books that didn’t impress me, however, I was pleasantly surprised.
There wasn’t a whole lot of suspense in a book advertised as a romantic suspense. Now, even though it didn’t have a ton, I kinda felt after several murder attempts, it made up for what it lacked in suspense with mystery.
Obviously, this is a romance. There’s passion, but as some people have a difficult time with, there was enough passion to make it believable, but not too much that you would be uncomfortable letting a younger reader read.
Though this book is technically Christian, it doesn’t really challenge your faith or beliefs, but then again, you don’t really dig into a book like this expecting it to. It has references to God and heaven and there isn’t any “preachy” parts at all.
Overall, I would say that this is a light read that would keep keep you entertained through till the end, even though it takes a few chapters to get going, it’s definitely worth it. I will be reading more from Colleen Coble. I give it a four out of five.
