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.

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.

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.
