Publisher's Summary

Kiss River's historic 19th-century lighthouse has all but fallen into the sea, taking with it the huge Fresnel lens that once served as its beacon. Gina is desperate to find a way to raise the lens; the glass holds the key to her future, her fortune, and her only chance to save the one person who matters to her. Clay O'Neill lives in the old light keeper's house, a home he shares with his sister, Lacey. When Lacey invites her to stay with them, Gina eagerly accepts. As Gina begins her quest to raise the lens, Clay finds himself drawn to her struggle and to Gina herself. But the answers lie deep below the ocean, and the lighthouse holds secrets that neither Clay nor Gina can anticipate...

Good book, part of the trilogy

I was expecting more of this book because the first one was outstanding. The last chapters saved the book. For me was slow. I can wait for the 3 book.

2nd story in the trilogy..quite good

I've listened to several of Chamberlains novels in the past few weeks and really enjoy them..so far I haven't hit a lemon amongst them!

This book continues in the Kiss River Lighthouse stories with characters first introduced in the beginning book-and several new characters are introduced.

Chamberlain writes a good plot twist that comes along unexpectedly and makes you go "Hummmmm...I didn't expect that!" I really enjoy that sort of stye of writing.

Read the first book first (Duh) and the final book after this one (also Duh). It's an effective trilogy but does need to be read in sequence.

Enjoy!

Good

I don't usually do books that are a series but this one is good. I like how new characters are brought into the story and one could actually read any of the books without being lost.

Horrible Plot

This is the most convoluted plot ever. The reason for one of the main characters existence is totally ludicrous. Buyer beware!

I'm Totally Hooked!

The combination of a story set in a place I love (the outer banks of North Carolina) and beautiful narration have me totally enthralled.

I really enjoyed the diary part of the story, although I see some people did not. It was fascinating to me to hear about the OBX in war time, and to have the old coast guard station brought to life.

Book 2

The reader did an excellent job with different voices to keep your mind straight.
The trilogy story does continue in this book, but not as compelling as the first book in the series.
Interesting to see what happens & see how things tied together, though.

Excellent

Excellent Book #2 in the Lighthouse trilogy! I loved the story more than I thought I would, after reading book 1, and now looking forward to starting Book #3 after I write this review. I loved the characters and how they developed, and how the present and past interacted with each other. Great narrator, great story!

Book 2 was a hit

I loved the characters. The voices were distinct enough to know who was talking. Twist at the end but in a good way-not over the top and believable.

Very very slow start.

this book had a very very slow start. i made myself finish it because I listened to the 1st book. I am not sure if I have it in me to listen to the third book in this series.

goods but not great

I really loved the first book & was so looking forward to this one but whilst I enjoyed it I didn't enjoy it near as much as the first. I will be looking forward to reading the final book in the trilogy.
