Katie McCullough doesn’t know it, but Max Sawyer, the over confident, insufferable thief who outbid her for the lighthouse property, is none other than her mystery lighthouse sailor. The one man who captured her heart five years earlier, the one man who has since been the plumb line for every other unsuspecting male who has crossed her path. Unfortunately for Max, he doesn’t measure up either.
Still reeling from losing the property she’d planned to call home, sparks fly when Katie assumes Max is turning her beloved lighthouse compound into one of his "Serenity Spa Resorts." Outraged, Katie sets out on a mission to dismantle the property…and his plans.
Except Max’s plans have absolutely nothing to do with hotels and everything to do with winning Katie’s heart.

I won a copy of this book at TRR YES party.
This was an enjoyable, easy, sweet read that gives a warm cosy glow when you've finished.
Katie, the heroine, first met Max as a 16 year old though, 4 years later she does not connect that he and her mystery sailor are the same. In some ways, Katie annoyed me a bit as she seemed much younger than 21 a lot of the time. She had had to deal with a lot of turmoil in her life and taken on a lot of responsibility but still managed to throw a tant quite often!
Max on the other was very much the brooding hero, keeping all his cards close to his chest and acting about 45 not 25!
The story has all the romance requirements aside from the two MC's - misunderstandings, self sacrifice, wicked auntie in this case, supportive community and friends, hidden talents and the happy ending! A definite sweet confection. And I really like the cover too.

Keeper of my Heart starts a bit slow but by chapter 3 the story starts sailing. The book is well written, but I do wish Max had been kinder to Katie. The reader knows what he's up to, but she doesn't and I felt he was harsh. Max has a reason to keep his heart secret from Katie, a big reason. So I forgave him for being such a stinker.

First, You will love this book!! It was that good. The storyline was refreshing. It was a lovely tale proving once again that love triumphs despite obstacles along the way. If you are looking for a hot passionate romance book, you won't find it in this but what you will find is a sweet romantic story of two people finding their way to one another. You will be delighted in the bantering between Katie and Max, you may even find yourself chuckling out loud a time or two. Max sometimes may have come across pompous, but Katie had a tendency to do "over the top" things. The author created some great secondary characters which added to the depth of Katie and Max. Ms. Flynn brought to life a realistic fishing town and within a few short pages, you felt that you were a resident in the quaint town of Paige Point.
The love that Katie has for Pop is sweet; it made me think of my own grandfather and what I would do for him if he asked. It was cute to find that love can still happen even in your twilight years.
