‘The day I turned 28, I bought a lighthouse and met the love of my life’
Bobbie Hannigan’s life in a cottage by the sea with her dog and her twin sister is perfectly fine … until she decides the logical thing is to buy a lighthouse and open a music venue with Ross Mason, the first boy she ever kissed.
Bobbie tries to be professional with Ross, but the happily-ever-after they’re working toward is too good to resist. That is until someone from his past crawls back to cause trouble. Can Bobbie look past the secrets Ross has been keeping from her? Or will the boy, the lighthouse and the dream all slip away?
Escape to the Yorkshire coast this summer with this laugh-out-loud romantic comedy from Mary Jayne Baker!
Book Rating: 9/10
Charming, witty, sweet and romantic!
This is a heartwarming story about small-town living, first loves, family, friendship, community, dreams, goals, music and of course the passion and tiresome commitment involved in refurbishing a derelict lighthouse.
The writing is amusing and fluid. The plot is a highly entertaining journey filled with laughs, drama, chemistry, and second-chance love. And the characterization is spot on with a whole gang of fun, quirky, spirited, and endearing characters.
This is the second novel I’ve read by Baker and once again she’s proven she can write clever, lighthearted, laugh-out-loud funny stories with characters you won’t forget.

About the Author:
Mary Jayne Baker grew up in rural West Yorkshire, right in the heart of Brontë country… and she’s still there. After graduating from Durham University with a degree in English Literature in 2003, she dallied with living in cities including London, but eventually came back with her own romantic hero in tow to her beloved Dales.
She lives with him in a little house with four little cats and a little rabbit, writing stories about girls with flaws and the men who love them. You can usually find her there with either a pen, some knitting needles or a glass of wine in hand. She goes to work every day as a graphic designer for a magazine publisher, but secretly dreams of being a lighthouse keeper.
