About this audiobook

Enchanting, mysterious, and deeply romantic, The Lighthouse follows a young woman's breathtaking journey far from home to discover where she truly belongs.

Something strange is happening in Seabrook. The town's lighthouse–dormant for over thirty years and famously haunted–has inexplicably started shining, and its mysterious glow is sparking feverish gossip throughout the spooked community.

Amy Tucker is only visiting for the night and has no plans to get caught up in the hysteria, but that changes when she meets Ryan, the loyal, hard-working son of a ranch owner who lives on the outskirts of town.

Their chance encounter turns into an unforgettable weekend, and against the backdrop of the lighthouse-obsessed town, the two of them forge a deep connection, opening their hearts, baring their souls, and revealing secrets long kept hidden.

But as they grow closer, and as the lighthouse glows ever brighter, a startling discovery about Ryan leaves Amy questioning everything she thought she knew. To uncover the truth about her new friend, Amy will need to enter Seabrook’s ominous tower, where waiting inside she will not only find the reason why fate has brought them together... but a shocking secret that will change the course of their lives forever.

", suspenseful, and briskly paced work... Parker offers plenty of heart, including messages about how love can conquer the unknown." - Kirkus Reviews

Wow! This book was marvellous. If you love books with massive unexpected twists then this is the book for you. I listened to the audiobook and loved the narrator he really brought the book to life adding to the tension and atmosphere. The great thing is the twists that were so unexpected. Then boom this book hit another level, I just couldn't put this book down such amazingly powerful writing and emotions. The author is amazing at writing this unique story-line. The depth of characters allowed instant connections and allowed me to fall in love with them instantly. This is a real page turner full to the brim with twists and turns that it keeps you on the edge of your seat. It is so heart warming and devastating in equal measures. The ending without giving anything away was amazing I just couldn't predict it. The ending was so perfect . It felt so satisfying and a feeling of contentment. Its a perfect complete novel full of mystery and magical realism with a very errie feel to it. This book is beyond its 5 star rating its on another level. I would like to thank the author and publishing team for bringing us such an enchanting tale that will blow your mind. For a debut novel this author is definitely one to watch. I just can't wait to read further books by this talented author.
