It's No "Secret" - A Great Cozy Mystery!
Linda Weaver Clarke has done it again! "The Lighthouse Secret", her seventh and final book in the clean and cozy Amelia Moore detective series, crafts an intriguing mystery combined with a satisfying romance and a dreamy setting for a completely satisfying experience.
For the mystery, the plot is one that draws you right in. It centers around Amelia and Rick, who are now married, as they investigate the death Rick's uncle five years earlier. Although his body was never found, he allegedly he drowned, despite being a good swimmer. The plot thickens when they not only find out that the uncle's best friend, who was with him, disappeared shortly after it happened, but that there is also someone else investigation the uncle's disappearance. The author is expert at weaving intricate, believable plots.
The characters are well-defined and the progress of their relationship is charming and realistic. The supporting characters are also very well done. Likewise, the author's mastery of setting really stand out in this book; yes, the descriptions are wonderful but also it is as if the lighthouse is a character, too, filled with personality, presence and a unique way of shining a "light" on the mystery. The author captures the mystique, beauty, mystery and allure of lighthouses. The narration by Diane Lehman, is smooth and she is adept at giving unique vocal qualities to each character. A totally terrific book!
I received an Audible audio version of "The Lighthouse Secret" in exchange for an honest review.
