Meet Me at the Lighthouse by Mary Jayne Baker @MaryJayneBaker #Review

ARC received from Netgalley

‘The day I turned 28, I bought a lighthouse and met the love of my life’

Bobbie Hannigan’s life in a cottage by the sea with her dog and her twin sister is perfectly fine … until she decides the logical thing is to buy a lighthouse and open a music venue with Ross Mason, the first boy she ever kissed.

Bobbie tries to be professional with Ross, but the happily-ever-after they’re working toward is too good to resist. That is until someone from his past crawls back to cause trouble. Can Bobbie look past the secrets Ross has been keeping from her? Or will the boy, the lighthouse and the dream all slip away?

This is my last book review of 2017 and what a gorgeous book to finish the year with. I loved the down to earth feel of this story with the characters feeling so realistic, it was such a joy to see Bobbie and Ross bring the lighthouse back to life. The characters act on impulse along with the help of alcohol and come up with a brilliant plan to open a music venue in a lighthouse. I was rooting for them all the way even with the obstacles that end up in their way. The question is will there be a happy ending?

There's something so charming about the premise of the lighthouse that easily pulled me into the story. Along with some fun minor characters that gave the story an extra lovely touch, a special mention has to go to Bobbie's twin their conversations were always lots of fun. With some fab one liners that I will have to borrow. There were some brilliant laugh out loud moments, plenty of giggles and I was pretty much smiling all the way through. The story has some deeper issues for example a lack of trust that gave the story a more balanced feel. If you are in need of a pick me up I can definitely recommend this story. I ended up reading Meet Me at the Lighthouse over two nights, I really wished I could have finished it in one evening as I didn't want to put it down!

Fun, flirty and wonderful!

Five stars from me!

With thanks to Harper Impulse and Netgalley for my copy. This is my honest and unbiased opinion.
