Lighthouse Beach Reviews
Lighthouse Beach is about four women who are at a crossroads in their life. When Lillo was invited to an old friend's wedding, she didn't anticipate going home with the bride and her two friends in tow. A girls' road trip just might turn out to be what each of them need to change their life.
Lighthouse beach is a beautifully written story. I really enjoyed it and it's characters. Lillo, Allie,
Diana and Jess all seem to need something in their life, but they are stuck. Diana's story was ...more
I won this book through a Goodreads giveaway. I always enjoy books where the characters go through some sort of self discovery and this book has plenty of that! The characters are well developed with lots of background history making them who they are in the story. This book could easily have a part two. Would love to know what happens next! Certainly a great book to take to the beach this summer.

Have enjoyed all of Shelley Noble's books. Have all 12 of them. This one was a little different than some others of hers I have read. It's a story of four women all of whom have different issues in their lives who come together for a week on an island in Maine and the effect of this relationship with each other. I thought it was quite good and I do recommend it.
When an invitation lands in her mailbox for her long lost friends wedding Lillo Gray wasn't quite sure what to think of it, they haven't spoken since they were teens and to hear from her like this out of blue is quite peculiar. They met at fat camp when they were fourteen, and made an instant connection, bonded over things and became inseparable for the duration of the summer. But then time passed and they moved on with their lives, and drifted far apart.

Thanks to William Morrow and TLC Book Tours for the free copy in exchange for my honest review.
This was my second outing with Shelley Noble, and while this isn't my typical genre, these are the perfect books to have in between all of the psychological thrillers and horror novels. LIGHTHOUSE BEACH is perfect for those looking for a beach read this summer and to have something lighter thrown into their TBR.
Shelley Noble does a great job setting the scene and really pulling the reader into the boo ...more
When 3 women attend the wedding of a friend, little did they know that within 24 hours, everything would have changed! But that is exactly what happened to Lillo, Jess, Allie, and Diana.
I have to say, that when I started out reading Lighthouse Beach, I thought it was going to be a funny, light-hearted book, but it is more than that! It's inspiring, funny, heartbreaking, confidence building story about new and old friendships, hidden pasts, secret, passion, and community, and that is truly what i ...more
