While I've never read the first book (Love Unexpected) in the Beacons Of Hope series, I have read a few of the author's other works, which is one of the reasons why I wanted to review this book.

Set in 1865, Hearts Made Whole centers on Caroline Taylor, a young woman who took over running the Windmill Point Lighthouse after her father passed away. A woman running any sort of operation in Michigan during this time is a little odd, which is what the lighthouse inspector believes as he appoints a new keeper - Ryan Chambers.

Ryan is a Civil War Veteran whom took the light keeper job on the single fact that he would be isolated from others. Little did he know that the current keeper, Caroline, is extremely upset for losing her job and her home. He also didn't know it was so difficult to run a lighthouse, something that enrages Caroline.

Of course this is a love story, so you know what happens next - Caroline and Ryan start to have feelings for each other.

I've been really busy as of lately, so I haven't much time to read. Luckily for me, Hearts Made Whole was a fast read, mostly thanks to the author's great storytelling abilities. Out of all the books I have read, I think this might be the first romantic story I've read that is set around a lighthouse, so I didn't know much about them. Overall, Hearts Made Whole is a pleasantly, well-written romance that I highly recommend to other romance readers.
