The Lightkeeper's Bride (Mercy Falls, #2)The Lightkeeper's Bride by Colleen Coble
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

The Lightkeeper's Bride is the second in Colleen Coble's Mercy Falls series. It's not a bad read, but it didn't live up to the first book in the series, The Lightkeeper's Daughter.

Katie Russell is content to marry wealthy Bart Foster and become "someone" in the town of Mercy Falls until the new lighthouse keeper, Will Jesperson, comes to town. Together she and Will embark on an adventure involving a murder, an orphan child, stolen treasure, and pirates.

Below there be spoilers:

There were inconsistencies in this story that bothered me. Katie was supposedly all about keeping her job as telephone operator in the beginning of the story and that whole idea fizzles without any closure. There is an assumed murder, but the body is never found and the murder is never identified. Katie is supposed to move to the lighthouse to help care for the toddler, but leaves that up to the chaperone while she runs around after Will, trying to find the pirates. There are several scary moments with the bad guys threatening Katie if she talks - but she's never hurt while the same bad guys killed another woman.

I'll probably read the third book in the series, The Lightkeeper's Ball and hope it's as good as the first book.
