Russell Morgan, a famous ad photographer, has made his
own way to success. Always involved with gorgeous models,
he doesn't even consider committing to any and has no
interest in the high class New York women. Living in
Manhattan Russell is portrayed as one of People
Magazine's "100 Most Eligible" and heir to billions, even
if his own wealth was by his own sweat. But now he has
made the decision that it's time to close the studio and
move forward with his dream. His best friend and almost
brother Angelo can help. Angelo owns and operates his own
restaurant. Purchasing a sailboat with the intent of
fixing it up himself, he and his cat Nutcase set out to
visit each lighthouse in Washington which appears on each
month of his calendar planning said visit the 1st day of
each month throughout the year.
Cassidy Knowles, the best food-and-wine columnist
around has recently lost her father and received from him
the same calendar accompanied by a letter to be opened at
each lighthouse on the 1st day of the month as they are
visited by Cassidy. Each picture she takes consistently
has the same blue sailboat with maroon sails in the
background. Russell also notices in his photos of the same
lighthouses, a woman in a red parka with long hair
appearing in the background of his as well. This begins
the cat and mouse hunt to locate this mysterious woman
which has captured his attention.
Meeting Cassidy when she
visits Angelo's restaurant to do a wine testing and review,
has them responding like porcupines towards one another and
not aware of their hidden identity. Neither would dream
Russell as the sailor and Cassidy as the Lady of the
Lights. Eventually discovering the truth, Russell finds
himself feeling things for this woman he has never ever
felt before for any other. While Cassidy is mourning the
loss of her father, Russell begins to fill a void for her.
Just when Russell finally comes to terms with what he truly
wants, Cassidy receives many career offers and when Russell
asks her "where is home, Cassidy Knowles", he doesn't
receive the answer he needs. Cassidy mourns his loss now
and needs to find a way to repair that which has been

entire tale. I loved the story line which was
very different from most other books and very refreshing.
I have not had the pleasure of reading other works by M.L.
Buchman previously, but will seek out other stories from
this very talented person. I was most impressed with the
emotion that was felt throughout.
