Overview

The Lightkeeper's Ball (Mercy Falls Series #3) by Colleen Coble

At the elegant Mercy Falls masquerade ball, Olivia's hidden identity will be revealed.

It is the dawn of a new century and Olivia Stewart is heiress to an empire. Her family numbers among the Four Hundred—those considered the wealthiest and most distinguished in America. Unfortunately their wealth has nearly disappeared, and now their security rests upon the Stewart daughters marrying well.

Olivia's sister, Eleanor, was engaged to Harrison Bennett, one of the nation's wealthiest men, but has since died. Now the pressure is on Olivia to take her place, despite her suspicions about Eleanor's fiancé. Using her family's long-forgotten English title, Olivia travels to Mercy Falls, California, as Lady Devonworth, hoping to learn more before committing to marriage. There she finds that Eleanor's death was no accident. And Harrison is not the man she thought he would be.

When Mercy Falls holds a charity masquerade ball to raise funds for the new lighthouse, secrets—and truths long hidden—will be revealed. But can Harrison really love Olivia when he finds her true identity? Can she live with the repercussions of failing her family, or will she finally realize that nothing—not money, family, or romance—will ever compare to God's unconditional love?

LOVED LOVED LOVED this book. It had a wonderful combination of suspense, romance, faith and courage. I have enjoyed the other two in series however loved this one the most.

This book had me quickly flipping through the pages. There are so many mysteries introduced one right after the other. I thought I had things figured out but was mistaken at the very end. What is ironic is that two people have the same doubts and same questions they are seeking answers for. Trust is broken by two people by uncontrolled circumstances. You start to think that maybe things just aren't going to work out for Olivia and Harrison. Be prepared to be shocked.

Colleen Coble's third venture into historical romance and mystery in the California coastal town of Mercy Falls is as intriguing and entrancing as her first two ventures. I tend to read Ms. Coble's novels straight through without putting them down and have yet to be disappointed by any of them. I have thoroughly enjoyed each one of the 'Lightkeeper's ...' series.

If you love mystery, suspense, love stories with clean language this is your book. If you love time period books, this is your book. This book kept me interested, the characters were well thought out, and the story flowed well.

Colleen has done it again.what an exciting fast pace book! It will keep you guessing right until the end. Thought I had it at one time, but was wrong. Olivia is one tough Lady! Don't want to give things away, but you wonder how New York socialite Olivia Stewart survives. This book is a great page turner! Loved the Historical aspects of this story....using Haley's Comet. You also add in aeroplanes, disasters, and murder! Great descriptions of the 1910's era! What a great movie this book would make. This is the third book in the series, but it can be read alone with no problem.

Normally, this is not the type of book I would pick up and read. Now that I have, I am glad that I took the time to investigate and give the book a chance. The Lightkeeper's Ball is a phenomenal read. It has everything you would want in a book... a historical angle interwoven in mystery, romance and a "I did not see that coming" conclusion to the story. I ended up starting the book at 6 p.m. and did not put it down until I finished it. I am excited that I found a new author and genre of books to read. I would definitely recommend this book.

Can an arranged marriage bring love? The year is 1910, and Olivia Stewart's sister, Eleanor, has gone off to marry a wealthy man in hopes of securing her family's future. But, when Eleanor drowns before she is married, that obligation falls on Olivia. With her father and sister dying under mysterious circumstances, Olivia needs to be careful, especially after almost drowning herself. Harrison Bennett is the wealthy man Eleanor was supposed to marry, and the one who rescued Olivia from drowning, but what is he really like? Did he have anything to do with the deaths of her father or sister? Olivia sets out to discover the answers, finding love along the way, even planning the "Lightkeeper's Ball" to help replace things damaged by a horrible storm. What will become of Harrison and Olivia? Will she find the answers she is looking for? Colleen Coble has once again drawn me into a story with a compelling storyline and wonderful characters. There are many twists and turns along the way, but I found them realistic and fun to follow. I loved the "frontier" feel of the book, with early trains, boats, and planes. This is a great book to read alone or in a group because you will want to talk about it with others. Thank you to Book Sneeze for my copy and the opportunity to write a review. I recommend it to all.

Why do these idiot people read the long review when they know it will give away the plot? And then complain about it!
Anonymous More than 1 year ago
To those of you smarting off saying dont read the plot spoilers.... its a little hard when you sight read and you have to scroll thru the loooooong posts telling every detail. You inevitably end up seeing something no matter how hard you try not to. To solve the problem, STOP THE PLOT SPOILERS THEN NOONE WILL SEE THEM!. Problem solved.

Olivia Stewart goes west to California because of the mysterious death of her sister. She was engaged to Harrison Bennett. Olivia is expected to marry Harrison Bennett who she believes killed her sister. Olivia goes to Mercy Falls as Lady Devonworth. She has many near death experiences. There is someone who is determined for her not to find the truth about her sister. She hates and fears Bennett but she finds he is not the man she thought he was and falls in love with him. What happened to her sister and what will happen when she finds her true identity at the Lightkeeper's Ball? I recommend this book. Thomas Nelson provided me with a copy of this book.

This book not only has one of the most gorgeous covers I have seen in awhile, it also has one of the best plot lines of the books I've read so far this year. I love Colleen's style, the way she develops her characters so beautifully, puts them in a setting that is so realistic that I feel like I'm there and then she artfully weaves story lines around the characters as she melds everything together. In this particular case Olivia is a strong heroine that wants justice for her sister and sets out to make things right and find out who murdered her. The very man she holds responsible creates a puzzle for her as she starts to doubt his guilt (and then slowly falls in love with him). She finds that she is in grave danger herself and whoever murdered her sister isn't done yet. What a great book!

First off, I absolutely LOVE the cover. Seriously. Whenever there’s a discussion about pretty covers, this one comes to my mind first. I did a Cover Focus on it awhile back too! And it contains a great story. There were a few scenes that I can only describe as heart-melting – so sweet, and I loved them. Mystery and excitement abound in this book, making it a page-turner the whole way through! It’s a memorable read – I recommend it.

The Light Keepers Ball; Keeps you guessing who the bad guy is up until the end! It lets you see how you need to listen to your own inner voice and trust your gut feelings. One lie snowballs into a giant snowball out of control.

This is another great book from this author. Balancing suspense, mystery and light romance, it kept me reading until the end. Colleen Coble paints a realistic picture with words that brings characters to life and puts you in the middle of the story. It was fun to have the brief time spent on the flying machine. Very clean with enough suspects to keep you guessing until the end. It has a good ending as well.
