The Last Lighthouse Keeper

The Last Lighthouse Keeper - Alan Titchmarsh
This is a much lighter book that I would normally choose to read but one of its attractions was the Cornish setting.

Mr Titchmarsh successfully evoked the village setting and although the female love interest was a little cliché, a beautiful, lithe ex-dancer and an artist to boot, the hero of the story was a rather attractive young man who didn't annoy me by letting his past totally ruin his future.

There was the added spice of a little smuggling but the excitement preceding the denouement was quite restrained and not out of place in a story that preferred to focus on the characters and their relationships.

It certainly wasn't life changing but the prose flowed pleasantly and the combination of gentle mystery and gentle romance held my interest until the last page.
