Coble spins a tangled web in this third book in the Mercy Falls series (after The Lightkeeper's Bride), with red herrings and oodles of duplicity. -- Publishers Weekly
My Review: The Lightkeeper's Ball by Colleen Coble is the third book in the Mercy Falls series. Although this is a series each book is stand alone read.
Olivia has strong suspicions that her sister's death is foul play because her sister was deathly afraid of water! So, why would she commit suicide using water or why would she be swimming? Olivia decides she will investigate this case herself! And find the truth of her sister's death.
Olivia's search brings suspense, mystery and romance! This read also has some great history included in the story---Haley's Comet in 1920, bloomers, and the suffragette cause.
If truth is to prevail then half-truths or omissions can cause trauma. Olivia finds that omitting truth can cause a good deal of grief! Olivia is stressed by the omission of truth and it plagues her throughout the story. A great lesson for us all.
After an attempt on her life, Olivia, is housed in the lighthouse. Then a storm strikes. and Olivia decides to have a Lightkeeper's Ball to replace all that was lost in the storm.
This read is full of how our actions and behavior can make or break us in life. Also, if one of our close relatives passed away would we know that relative well enough to know the truth or fiction of what others tell us about said relative?
A most.wonderful.read! Colleen Coble outdid herself in this third Mercy Falls book!

About the Author:
I'm a reading addict. I'll read anything: cereal boxes, flyers, toilet paper bags. I grew up on Nancy Drew so I still love reading things that have some mystery or suspense in them, but romance is always at the heart of my books.
