Book 2 in the Mercy Falls series. Another great book by Coble.

So they are thrilled when Bartholomew Foster proposes and Katie accepts. But then life takes a twist... while working, Katie accidentally hers an ominous exchange. And then the lady she heard goes missing leaving behind an infant with no one to care for her.
Will Jepperson, the new lightkeeper, lays claim to the child.. believing her to be his niece. But Katie has other ideas and is not keen on Jepperson taking the baby.

Another wonderful intriguing story with adventure and romance mixed in for good measure. Looking forward to the final book in this series.
