Meira Pentermann--Firefly Beach

Paranormal Cozy Mystery

When Beth LaMonte rents a cottage on the coast of Maine, she wishes only to withdraw and paint. A mysterious ball of light disturbs her peace and leads her to a secret beach where she finds the diary of a girl who disappeared in 1975. Now Beth is on a mission, not only to bury her own past, but to put to rest the spirit of Firefly Beach.
{5 stars}
The synopsis doesn't do this book justice. It is an emotional tale, and quite the journey for more than just Beth and the Firefly. This was one of those "deal of the day" ebook emails I get, and it seemed interesting enough to give a try. Honestly, the first 25% of the book didn't quite keep my attention, the author had a way of overly describing the scenery (but I skimmed thru that).
Once Beth starts reading the diary, my attention was hooked 100%. The journey isn't only about the Firefly, it's about Beth (and in some small part Kenny), and Katherine's father. Everyone has a past, not always one we are proud of, and sometimes want to escape from. Decisions are made, sometimes you can correct them, sometimes you just have to move on. But sometimes you can make it right. Beth becomes obsessed with making it right, with finding out what happened to the girl in the diary and along the way journeyed thru her own regrets to find closure with her own past. This book is sweet, charming, and completely lovable. I really enjoyed it.
