Olivia seems to have it all, but her heart yearns for more.
Olivia Stewart’s family is one of the Four Hundred—the highest echelon of society in 1910. When her sister dies under mysterious circumstances, Olivia leaves their New York City home for Mercy Falls, California, to determine what befell Eleanor. She suspects Harrison Bennett, the man Eleanor planned to marry. But the more Olivia gets to know him, the more she doubts his guilt—and the more she is drawn to him herself.
When several attempts are made on her life, Olivia turns to Harrison for help. He takes her on a ride in his aeroplane, but then crashes, and they’re forced to spend two days alone together. With her reputation hanging by a thread, Harrison offers to marry her to make the situation right. As a charity ball to rebuild the Mercy Falls lighthouse draws near, she realizes she wants more than a sham engagement—she wants Harrison in her life forever. But her enemy plans to shatter the happiness she is ready to grasp. If Olivia dares to drop her masquerade, she just might see the path to true happiness.
From my blog: A Book A Day The Lightkeeper’s Ball by Colleen Coble I received an advanced review copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. I am under no obligation to write a positive review, just an honest one. The Lightkeeper’s Ball is the 3rd book in Colleen Coble’s Mercy Falls series. I have not read any other books in this series, and had no problem feeling like I understood everything, so I feel like this book does well as a stand alone. Olivia Stewart is part of high society in New York. Her sister is in Mercy Falls, California, engaged to marry Harrison Bennett. However, under rather mysterious circumstances, Olivia’s sister is found dead, drowned in the ocean. While many people talking are saying that she accidentally drowned while swimming, Olivia is certain that there is more to it than that seeing as her. . .
A thrilling romantic mystery set in the lush Victorian age.
Central Operator Katie Russell’s inquisitive ways have just uncovered her parents’ plan for her marriage to wealthy bachelor Bartholomew Foster. Her heart is unmoved, but she knows the match will bring her family status and respectability.
Then Katie overhears a phone conversation that makes her uneasy and asks authorities to investigate. But the caller is nowhere to be found. Mysterious connections arise between the caller and a ship lost at sea.
Against propriety, Katie questions the new lighthouse keeper, Will Jesperson. Then a smallpox epidemic forces their quarantine in his lighthouse. Though of low social status, Will’s bravery and kindness remove Katie’s suspicion and win her love. Katie and Will together work to solve the mystery of the missing girl and the lost ship as God gives the couple the desire of their hearts.
