BOOK BLURB: Bar Harbor, Maine 1940 - Nessie McDonald, daughter of a recently deceased lighthouse keeper seeks a husband by Thanksgiving to share the work and responsibility of warning sailors off the rugged Maine coast. She advertises in the Bar Harbor News and cooks gourmet dinners for each would-be husband’s interview.


Kyle Cameron, the injured seaman Nessie rescues from the sea, doesn’t qualify because he must return to his home in Australia to run his enormous sheep station. Yet Kyle, lying on a cot in the kitchen with a broken leg, points out each of Nessie’s aspiring husband’s unsuitability by reading spiritual advice aloud from Lady Jane’s New England Cookbook, Nessie’s mysteriously discovered heirloom. Kyle also offers hilarious Aussie advice.


When Kyle must return home, he cooks up a recipe of his own.

I have an old Betty Crocker cookbook that was given to me as a wedding gift 39 years ago. I still refer to it, especially for some of my favorite recipes. 

I would like to go to Australia.  I would like to see the landscape, the kangaroos out in the wild, and I would like to go to Hillsong ministry.

I love light houses. there is something romantic and yet mysterious at the same time. I feel like a light house has many secrets that need to be explored. I dont think I have read a book with a light house in it yet. I would love to.

Don’t enter me. I’ve read and reviewed this book. It is soooo good! Best of luck to all who enter and if you don’t win consider purchasing it. You won’t regret it.

My favorite recipe book is an 40+ year old Betty Crocker. It has the good tried and true recipes that turn out right every time.

1. My favorite cookbook is Goosebeery Patch's 5 Ingredients or Less. I'm not a fan of cooking so the simpler the better in my book. Thanks for the chance to win a prize.

I use to local cookbooks for several of my recipes-Woodbush School Cookbook and Everett Free Library cookbook.

1. I love Gooseberry Patch cookbooks because they have little tidbits at the bottom of each page, funny sayings, helpful hints and other fun things, They also have great Christmas books with crafts. I also like the Cake Doctor book! You can make a rare cake from a boxed cake!

I use a Betty Crocker cookbook that I received in 1979 and I also use a few church cookbooks, but the majority of my recipes come from Pinterest.

I have this book and I just Love it! I love my "Joy of Cooking " cookbook. Anne Greene is an Awesome author!

I use cookbooks all the time.  I love the Betty Crocker cookbook for all the practical things it has.  I love church cookbook for tried and true recipes and I am currently using the Trim Healthy Mama cookbook to improve my health.

What fascinates me about lighthouses is that they use their light to guide those ships to their destinations, plus, i like how they stand on the hilltops, overlooking the seas. That's how our Jesus is. He's that lighthouse, overlooking life's sea. And, we when tossed about to, and fro. He sends out his guiding light to lead us home!
