The Last Lighthouse Keeper

The Last Lighthouse Keeperby Alan Titchmarsh

I have read a couple of Alan Titchmarsh’s books before and thoroughly enjoyed them. He always manages to combine an interesting (although predictable) plot, well rounded characters and well paced story telling. Fine literature it might not be, but a jolly good read non the less.

Set in small-town Cornwall we have a budding romance, secrets and a touch of smuggling. The whole thing centres around Will and Amy. Both are alone by choice, but find themselves drawn to each other, despite their mixed up pasts and very different dreams for the future.

Will has lost his job as a lighthouse keeper and sets about preparing to sail solo around the coast of Britain. Amy runs a local art gallery which is her way of hiding from her past. The twists and turns may be predictable, with few surprises, but the story is a good one.

A good easy read and very enjoyable.
