Publisher's Summary

Lucas Oakes is one of Lindsey Point's local boys and proud of it. He's still nursing the scars of losing both his best friend and his fiancée, so he keeps to himself and is more than happy to work construction, volunteer as an EMT, and play Santa in his sleepy hometown. The last thing he needs is a nosy, out-of-town journalist snooping around. But he can't say no when Sophie Smithwaite asks him to fill in as cameraman, swept away by a powerful attraction he's never felt before.

NYC cable reporter Sophie Smithwaite is only in town for a story. Finding out a hunky local boy can run one of her cameras is just a bonus, until she finds herself falling for strong, silent Lucas. But when Sophie discovers a personal connection to Lindsey Point's haunted lighthouse, she'll stop at nothing to uncover the truth - even if it means risking her life and the lives of others.

Suddenly, Sophie and Lucas find themselves in the middle of a 50-year-old mystery, and someone in town isn't happy with the secrets they're uncovering. As the mystery deepens, both Sophie and Lucas become targets of vicious attacks on the beach, and they'll have to decide whether true love is worth destroying legends and risking it all.

    What did you like best about this story?

    I love this audiobook at the onset of the story and only increased. Romance mystery that kept me guessing and reading. Very well developed storyline and characters. Perfect depiction of a small coastal town with everyone's lives intertwined and crossing with many connections.

    "This was a great listen"

    I really liked the story and will look for other books in the series. I expected a different ending but that's fine it's not fun to always be able to predict. Definitely a great storyline that goes back many years.

    "Kudos to Allie Boniface"

    I loved this book. The story was great. I would definitely listen to other books by Allie Boniface. Narrator Barbara Nevins Taylor did a wonderful job. I would have given the book 4.5 if I could have. I felt the story only had 2 drawbacks. The love scene needed just a little more detail. It didn't need to be as steamy as so many books are today. It just needed a bit more detail to seal the H and h's chemistry. My larger issue was the book needed more detail at the end and an epilogue. When I invest a lot of time into a book I love, I want to know what happened to all the characters. However, I loved the mystery in the book and all of the unusual twists. Kudos to Allie Boniface.

    "Wonderful story"

    I loved this book right from the beginning! The home town feel where the whole town sticks together and watches it out for each other. The Ghost story the all love to talk about and the way I could see them all looking up at the lighthouse. The story was masterfully written with characters I cared about. It's has everything you want in a book. Intrigue, suspense, romance, family all in and wonderful seaside town where I could practically smell,the salty air. Highly recommended this book

    "Loved this book! Can't wait for the next one!"

    Beacon of Love is a great start to a series. The book is well written with well developed and likable characters. I loved the small town setting and the mystery and twists that Allie Boniface adds to the story. I can't wait to listen to the next one! Barbara Nevins Taylor did a great job narrating Beacon of Love. Between the author and narrator, this book can't be beat!
    I was given this audio book in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.

    Story
    "Twists and Turns to the End"
    Would you listen to Beacon of Love again? Why?

    I think I would if I wanted to visit a small town and feel as if I were surrounded by one huge family. It may be tiring though if I found more than the story I was going there to report on.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    My favorite character was Lucas Oakes because despite all of the inner turmoil, he seemed as stable as his last name. He was strong and didn't waiver once his word was given. He seemed to have perfect timing when it came to rescuing Sophie from herself and his feelings were genuine.


    Which character – as performed by Barbara Nevins Taylor – was your favorite?

    I really enjoyed Barbara's interpretation Sophie's character. She was so headstrong and purpose driven on the outside, but the conversation that went on in her mind was very complicated and not very confident. I loved how Barbara's performance was able to relay this.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes. I was often irritated when I was interrupted by life and had to take care of adult things before I could get back into this suspense filled world.

    Story
    "Beacon of Love"

    This story has some surprising twists and turns. Which made a great story. A 50 year old murder suicide, and a town suffering a mass loss in a tourist town, with a lot of closed up locals. Makes it hard to come by answers, but the truth has a way of working itself out!
