Lighter’s Keeper Bride: The second book in the Mercy Book series. In this book, Coble introduces the reader to Katie, a girl who was raised by her birth father and auntie. Her mother had not only turned to drugs but also sex and fun; thus she had always left Katie alone. When she was five years old, her mother took her to Mercy Falls, where she met with her dad. One day when her mother had gone out, Katie got angry and scared; thus she went to see her father. On the next day, her father’s wife came and insisted that they take her in and raise her as their own. Thus, they paid her mother off. Once she completed school, Katie became an operator, a job that she truly loved dearly. Furthermore, this is a job that, she always brought a levelheadedness to; a great example is when she received a phone call concerning a fire breakout at the local orphanage. She not only called the fire department, but she also called the constable as well.
Apart from Katie, the author also introduces the reader to Will. Will is an individual who loves to study weather and is also the new lighthouse keeper.

One day, when pirates were throwing people from a boat, he managed to save two people out of the 6. With that being said, the Lightkeeper’s Bride is an exceedingly entertaining book that will keep you fully entertained throughout.
