The Lighthouse Secret, by Linda Weaver Clarke
2016, 241p, Clean Cozy Mystery
My Rating=5 Stars

Amelia Moore, the founder of the Moore Detective Agency, specializes in missing persons. With the help of her partner, Rick Bonito, the business is flourishing.

Rick Bonito’s uncle supposedly drowned five years ago and his body was never found, but something did not seem right about the report. Uncle Antonio was an excellent swimmer. His disappearance seems quite suspicious to Rick’s father. He never felt the complete truth had come out about his brother. It is now up to Amelia and Rick to find out the truth about his uncle.

This is the seventh book in this series. This time, Rick and Amelia are investigating the supposed drowning of Rick's uncle five years ago. There are parts of the story that don't add up. He was a strong swimmer and his body was never found. His best friend who was with him disappeared shortly after it happened. As they investigate, they quickly learn that there is someone else trying to find out the truth about his uncle, too. If he's still alive, they need to find him first.

I love Rick and Amelia! They are still in their newlywed stage and Rick is as romantic as ever. They work well together and each one uses their strengths to help solve the case. It's personal this time so they have a lot more invested in the outcome. 

This book also has all the things that have helped me fall in love with her other books: the relationship between Rick and Amelia continues to strengthen, they run into sinister people who try to prevent them from successfully solving their case, they travel to a place that is fun to visit, and most especially, it's clean! This is the final book in the series and I'm sad to see it end. If you enjoy clean, cozy mysteries, this is a series you will want to read! I'm looking forward to seeing what Ms. Clarke comes up with next!
