At Lighthouse Point ~ Review

At Lighthouse Point
Three Sisters Island #3
By Suzanne Fisher Woods

It's Blaine Grayson's turn to let her family see what she has to offer. She's taken two years to discover herself and hone her culinary skills. She is ready to oversee the upgrade of Camp Kicking Moose's kitchen making it a commercial kitchen. There is just one itty, bitty problem (well actually it is a huge problem) her family has surprised her with doing the remodel themselves. And it is never, ever going to be a commercial kitchen. Nothing is even up to a good working family kitchen standard - it is all show. 

But Blaine has a bit of a surprise of her own for her family - she's brought home a friend from France. Jean-Paul is not who her family would have ever thought Blaine would take a fancy to. But they don't understand just what his friendship and compassionate nature have done for her. And worse Artie Lotosky, who has been there for her over the years, is anything but pleased with her return to Three Sisters Island. Was coming home a mistake? 

The Grayson family has grown since it moved to Three Sisters Island. Cam and Maddie are both married and expecting their first babies. But their change it now attitude has not endeared them to the local population. In fact, Cam is almost regarded as a Summer Tourist who looks down on everyone and everything the Island has to offer. Maddie's fears still grip her. And Blaine can only hope that her family will realize that she did grow-up while on her own. And then there is a long-absent relative who has suddenly shown up on the Island. Summer hasn't even begun and already the stress is starting to raise its head.

At Lighthouse Point is the third and final book in the Three Sisters Island series, it could be read as a standalone title but it reads so much better if you have previously read the first books. All three Grayson sisters and their father Paul take center stage, so to speak, but Blaine is given the starring role. I like how various key moments of Blaine's early life are presented, allowing the reader a glimpse into Blaine's heart and the hidden depth of her soul. This is a contemporary work set in Maine, and the main focus is family and a finding where one belongs. This is a lovely series conclusion and well worth setting aside a few hours for.

I was provided a complimentary copy of this book with no expectations but that I provide my honest opinion. All thoughts expressed are my own.

About the Book:
Blaine Grayson returns to Three Sisters Island with a grand plan--to take Camp Kicking Moose to the next level. Her dream starts to unravel when she discovers Moose Manor's kitchen has been badly remodeled by her sister, Cam, who doesn't know how to cook. Added to that blow is the cold shoulder given by her best friend, Artie Lotosky, now a doctor to the unbridged Maine islands.

As old wounds are opened, Blaine starts to wonder if she made a mistake by coming home. Little by little, she must let go of one dream to discover a new one, opening her heart to a purpose and a future she had never imagined.

Bestselling author Suzanne Woods Fisher invites you back to the coast of Maine for a story that reminds you to release what doesn't matter and cling to what does: faith, family, and friendships.
