The Lightkeepers Ball, written by Colleen Coble, is the third book in the Mercy Falls Series, and tells the story of Olivia Stewart. Olivia is the daughter of a wealthy New Yorker in the early 1900s, but her life is about to become very complicated. Her sister is betrothed to be wed to a man named Harrison who she was introduced to through their parents’ plans for an arranged marriage. After Olivia’s sister is found dead under mysterious circumstances, Olivia becomes determined to find her sister’s murderer, and travels to Mercy Falls, California to investigate under the guise of being Lady Devonworth, since she fears for her own life.
Overall, I really enjoyed this book, as I could tell I would from the cover. I liked the historical aspect of the book, as anything dealing with history always interests me. Add in the mystery and action components, and it was the perfect book! Although this is the third book in the series, and there were some characters who seemed to have been introduced in other books, it was not confusing to read the book as a stand-alone.
