Sail over to Birch Harbor, where family secrets tangle against a heartwarming backdrop of new beginnings.

Reeling from the fallout of her late mother's estate, Amelia Hannigan and her sisters thought they had put family secrets behind them. But settling the matriarch's affairs was just the beginning. When Amelia unearths a cryptic diary entry, a new mystery takes shape: the whereabouts of the women's long-lost father.

Meanwhile oldest sister Kate is happy to work on turning a piece of family history into a charming bed and breakfast... until it's time to hire out for major repairs. The only local who can take on the job is Kate's old flame, who happens to the man with whom she shares a crushing secret.

Megan is waiting on a job interview and a divorce, and the best distraction is to help Kate fix up the looming property on the harbor. It would be a manageable task, if she weren't also helping Amelia hunt down their missing dad.

Clara has some answers, but not all of them. When new questions start emerging about her own history, she has a chance at true personal closure... if she can put her personal life before her teaching career for once.

Family ROMANCE Small-town mystery

Lighthouse on the Lake written by Elizabeth Bromke takes listeners back to Birch Harbor. The Hannigan sisters are searching for answers about their father. Along the way, they’ll discover second chances and new beginnings. Come listen to this tale narrated by Lisa Larsen. 

We are back with Kate, Amelia, Meghan and Clara as they make plans for their inheritance and the properties their mother bequeath them. All except Clara had left the small coastal town. But it looks like each will find their way home.

  • With the renovations needed for the inn, Kate will have to face the past… and high school sweetheart who happens to be the local contractor.
  • Megan’s divorce is almost finalized, but it seems she keeps putting off signing the papers. Meanwhile, she is trying to land her dream job.
  • Amelia is trying to solve the mystery of the lighthouse and Michael their attorney agrees to help. Is there a spark there?
  • Clara feels free for the first time and looks forward to renovating her cottage, but her student’s father has her distracted.

It was lovely to be back in Birch Harbor, Michigan. The tale gives us perspectives from each of the sisters. Listening to narrator Lisa Larsen made those transitions effortless. Sometimes I felt pulled, but then quickly became ensnared in the next sister’s scenes. I questioned whether I would have liked each sister’s story as a separate book, but by the end was happy with the format.

Each sister’s story combined with the overall mysteries surrounding the lighthouse and their missing father. I laughed, swooned and like the sisters found myself eager for answers.

We meet new characters and witness the girls bond and develop relationships. Second chances and new beginnings abound in this heartfelt novel. I loved the diary entries from their mother and discovering secrets.

Grab your earbuds and come meet the Hannigan sisters as they find their way home. Lisa Larsen does a splendid job of giving each character their own unique voice and enhances the tale.

*I recommend listening to the series in the order of their release.

    This sounds delightful, Kimberly. Living across the river from Michigan, I enjoy books set there. I will have to put this series on my TBR.
