What disappointed you about Secrets of the Lighthouse?
Like another reviewer, I got this because it was recommended in People (surprisingly, People usually chooses well. Usually.) I was extremely disappointed. You can see every twist and turn in the plot coming from a mile away.
I think what was most disappointing, though, was the romance. Every romantic scene was gag-inducing. Not to mention totally unrealistic. And if I ever hear the words "mischievous grin" or "lascivious gleam in his eye" again...
Add to all of this that the main character in the story, Ellen, is completely unlikeable, and listening to this audiobook becomes more of a chore than a source of enjoyment.
Would you ever listen to anything by Santa Montefiore again?
Which character – as performed by Susan Riddell – was your favorite?
The narrator was quite good! I liked Peg and Dylan.
What character would you cut from Secrets of the Lighthouse?
The protagonist, Ellen, which gives some insight into how bad the book was.
Any additional comments?
Spend your money on another audiobook. And don't trust People reviews!

I loved the location and narration of this story.
There was there was some suspense, as well as romance in it, even if it was predictable. but the description of the Irish village was enjoyable, and maybe a little more stereotyped then it should have been, but still the descriptions were great, and the story was enjoyable.
