Publisher's Summary

Amelia Moore, the founder of the Moore Detective Agency, specializes in missing persons. With the help of her partner, Rick Bonito, the business is flourishing. Amelia and Rick are newlyweds and just beginning life as a married couple, which gives them a new insight in their relationship. Their new assignment is more personal this time. Rick Bonito's uncle supposedly drowned five years ago and his body was never found, but something did not seem right about the report. Uncle Antonio was an excellent swimmer. His disappearance seems quite suspicious to Rick's father. He never felt the complete truth had come out about his brother. It is now up to Amelia and Rick to find out the truth about his uncle.

    "Great Mystery!"

    This Audible version of Linda Weaver Clarke's book was wonderful! I love her narrator, Diane Lehman. She is so full of expression and very talented! I loved listening to someone "tell me a story". I could listen as I drove to and from work and as I commuted on the train and even while fixing dinner. It's a great way to "multi-task".

    I loved Linda's book! It's a great cozy mystery and for me it was awesome because she always writes about places that I know. This time her book took me to my old home in California, Palm Springs, and as she described it, I could totally visualize it! Then they were headed to Ventura Harbor. I used to live in Ojai which is very close by and trips to the beach in Ventura were a remembrance of years past for me!

    But aside from this, the book held my attention to the very end. My only disappointment was that this is book 7 and will be the last of this series. I loved this clean romance and the resolution to the mystery. I look forward to reading other books from this great author.

    I received an Audible version of this book from the author for my honest review, which I have given. All thoughts are my own.

    "Delightful listen"

    I absolutely adored this story. The details about the lighthouses were very interesting. And the plot itself kept me interested and intrigued. I love the banter between Amelia and her husband. This book is clean through and through and I appreciated that aspect as well.

    "It's No "Secret" - A Great Cozy Mystery!"
    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "An entertaining series."
    Have you listened to any of Diane Lehman’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes, I've listened to the whole series and enjoyed her narration throughout.
    I enjoyed meeting Rick's family in this book and all the teasing and banter that went on when he was with his family. I also enjoyed the mystery of his missing and presumed dead uncle; although I wasn't quite sure why Rick simply wondering what really happened as it didn't really sound like something Rick would leave unsolved. Not only that but he has unfettered access to a detective agency! Luckily it only takes a brief conversation with Amelia for the pair to set off in search for answers.
    I liked the back story surrounding his uncle's disappearance. I thought it was both realistic and it had a romantic angle. It was an intriguing mystery and I enjoyed following the couple on their investigation.

    I am quite sad that this is the final book in the series. I am not ready to say goodbye to Rick and Amelia just yet so no doubt I will be revisiting them from the beginning sometime soon.

    "Enjoyable and ultra-clean cozy mystery"

    I think this book may be one of my favorite in the Amelia Moore series. Lighthouses fascinate me and it is my ultimate fantasy to live in one. I think that is why this book appealed to me so much. I thought the story was well-thought-out, and it was interesting to meet Rick's family in this book. I appreciate that this is a family-friendly book (no sex scenes or bad language), but sometimes the romance seems a little "too-sweet" and the characters feel a little hard to relate to. It is still a very enjoyable book, and its fun to read about Amelia's "old-timey" movies that she likes to watch and share with Rick. Each novel can stand on its own, but I have enjoyed reading about the progression of Rick and Amelia's relationship throughout the series. I listened to the Audible audio version of the book, which I received in exchange for an honest opinion. The narrator, Diane Lehman, does a good job giving unique voices to each of the characters. If you like ultra-clean, cozy mysteries, this book (and the entire series) is a great choice.
