Something quite different from what we’re used to with our beloved Jason Collins… it’s not the hot and steamy story you might expect from him. Instead, it’s a lovely, slow-burn story with a solid ground of mystery.
Alex and Nicholas start with annoying each other, then they get to be somewhat unlikely allies, before finally surrendering to their feelings.
I loved both the mystery part of their story as well as the growing relationship between the two MCs.
One of Jason’s valuable skills is his ability to nudge the reader into his new novel by offering the mind sets of each of the two main characters, in THE LIGHTHOUSE KEEPER they are Alex and Nicholas: ‘: Alex - Love is riskier than chasing down a lead. My aunt loved me like a son—until she mysteriously passed away. Now I’m racing to Briton Bay to put my reporter skills to work. Nicholas, the lighthouse keeper, is a rare new face in this sleepy coastal town, and his connection to my aunt isn’t the only reason I’m interested. He’s not just a neighbor I keep bumping into, he’s a former doctor with a puzzling past I’m endlessly curious about—and a face I wouldn’t mind seeing every day. It isn’t long before we feel an undeniable spark, but our relationship is a new complication. Falling in love on the job wasn’t in my plans. I owe it to my aunt to keep a clear head, but I can’t investigate when all I can think about is Nicholas. I’ll need his insights to get to the bottom of this, and the closer I get, the more I risk heartbreak for us both. As it turns out, Nicholas may be the biggest mystery of all. Nicholas - I wanted a fresh start, but trouble follows me. I moved to Briton Bay to escape my past. It was never the plan to make friends with the locals, least of all my elderly neighbor. Her passing is a shock, but not as much as her nephew, a reporter, arriving in town to investigate. Alex is as sharp as he is hot, and I can’t keep my eyes off him. The last thing I need right now is romance, but I have second thoughts when our investigation brings us closer than I planned. Now there’s more at stake than I ever expected. But the sooner he solves this mystery, the closer he is to leaving town forever. I should keep my heart out of it—but that’s the one thing I can’t do. The more we’re together, the more dangerous this becomes.’
Opening with a mood setting thought from Alex, we read. ‘Briton Bay, my home away form home, although I hadn’t been here in years. Still, I knew exactly which bus to take to my aunt’s house, and knew how much it’s cost to get a taxi after that, the trek form the bus stop to the taxi lane only composing the first half of the trip. It was a long way from New York City to the beach in Briton Bay, and Beth’s home was as close to the beach as legally possible because she never wanted it to be too accessible to what she considered the common man. Because Beth was any thing but common. My aunt had been a star…’
A better overview of this well written story would be difficult to find, but the pleasure is in the reading and as with all of Jason’s books, the rewards are lasting! Another solid book by Jason Collins. Grady Harp, August 20
