A man who’s been left at the altar. A woman who doesn’t need any help! Will they give each other a second chance? From kindle all-star, Taylor Hart! The South Port Beach Series! Marshall Stone didn't become the kind of helicopter pilot that extracts Delta Force and Navy SEALs by being a wimp. No. He has grit and he demands that same grit in everyone around him. Too bad that A man who’s been left at the altar. A woman who doesn’t need any help! Will they give each other a second chance? From kindle all-star, Taylor Hart! The South Port Beach Series! Marshall Stone didn't become the kind of helicopter pilot that extracts Delta Force and Navy SEALs by being a wimp. No. He has grit and he demands that same grit in everyone around him. Too bad that getting left at the altar and grounded from flying makes him question himself. But, he's fine. More than fine. Coming back to South Port to help with the Family Inn is easy work until he runs into Kat Dixon. The girl who had once been his best friend, until she’d dashed his heart to pieces ten years ago. If Katherine Dixon, had learned anything, it was that life wasn’t fair and you had to work like crazy to get what you wanted. After losing her husband the previous year, she’d been running a bakery and deli all on her own. Not to mention raising her nine-year-old son. When her car breaks down and none other than too big for his britches, Marshall, shows up she tells him she doesn’t need his help. She doesn’t want his help. She wouldn’t take his help if she were hanging from a cliff and holding on with one hand. Good thing—he helps her anyway. When a stalker keeps showing up, leaving strange things for Kat and clues to the Conquistador’s gold fall into their hands, they must make a decision; trust each other or fall for the lies of the past. As these six Stone siblings find a way back to each other, they must learn to let go of what doesn’t matter and cling to the things their parents always wanted for them--family, love, and fun memories on the beach.

    I can't wait to read the rest of the stories in the series. I devoured this one in about a day and stayed up late to finish it. Marshall is part of the NightStalkers group in the military. He is a helicopter pilot who helps extract Seals and Delta members from special ops. It is a dangerous job but he doesn't have much to return home to and it is all he really wants since he lost the love of his life and best friend ten years ago. He was left at the alter by his fiance' recently, too. He has no I can't wait to read the rest of the stories in the series. I devoured this one in about a day and stayed up late to finish it.

It is a dangerous job but he doesn't have much to return home to and it is all he really wants since he lost the love of his life and best friend ten years ago. He was left at the alter by his fiance' recently, too. He has no desire to be in a romantic relationship ever again. He is only back in South Port to help out his brother at the family Inn they run and because he is grounded from his assignment for a while. Kat lost her best friend ten years ago. He just ghosted her and she doesn't understand why. She married, had a son and lost her husband a year ago in a deployment and she feels responsible for his death. She moved back to South Port to start over. She hadn't expected to see Marshall again until he came to her rescue on the side of the road. I loved how Kat and Marshall found a way to move past their past hurts and look toward a brighter future. One that just might be the best either could imagine. This was book 3 in the series and I am looking forward to reading the others in the series to learn more about the Stone family members and the ones who love them. It is also a clean, wholesome romance with a happy ending. I was given an arc copy of this book and I willingly offer my honest review.

    I love the way Taylor Hart has written these. The characters are fabulous. I love getting to know more of the Stone Family every time. And I love the bit of mystery in every one. Kat is one of the characters from this series that I had wanted to learn more about. She’s a mom. And she owns the bakery and deli in South Port. But Kat has a stalker and she isn’t quite sure what to do about that.

He was devastated when she turned him down. Seeing her again, just makes him fall even more in love with her. And, he’s got to protect her from her stalker and figure out the mystery. I really liked Marshall. I wasn’t sure I would after reading about him through the eyes of his siblings. But he’s a good guy. And I loved that there were two mysteries in this one. There’s the stalker, of course, but also the treasure. I really hope that the Stone family or their friends eventually solve the mystery of the treasure! I loved this book! And I can’t wait to read more about the Stone family! I was sent an e-copy of The Stone Family Lighthouse as a gift from the author. All opinions are my own.

    Two Peas in a Pod This book had two main draws for me. The first was the suspense of who her stalker was and why were they after her. It really was strange- the notes, what things were left. Kept me guessing. And second, the excitement of reconnecting with her best friend after a 10 year separation. It was like everything was new again for them and they were once more kids playing on the beach, riding on motorcycles, arguing/teasing, etc. It was really sweet.

It was like everything was new again for them and they were once more kids playing on the beach, riding on motorcycles, arguing/teasing, etc. It was really sweet. There was so much baggage and hurt that they had after so many years apart. But I like the way were able to reconnect and start something even better than a friendship, a lasting love. This is the first book that I’ve read in this series. The book is standalone. I think it would be helpful to start the series from the beginning but even though I didn’t know what happened in the previous books I still was able to enjoy this book. Now I want to read the whole series. Rating: G, clean, trigger PTSD, stalker

    My favorite in this series!!! Marshall is definitely a protector and swoony one at that. He and Katherine have been best friends since they were 9 years old. What happens when one wants more but the other is too afraid at loosing what they already have? Fast forward ten years. Their meeting after a 10 year gap is quite comical IMO. She is so sassy - loved her - who has suffered her share of heartaches. He is so sweet even with her sass. I was rooting for them to get their second chance. Loved th My favorite in this series!!!

    Marshall Stone comes home to South Port to oversee the Inn while his brother’s family takes a quick vacation. Marshall is on leave from the military and going home is no inconvenience as he can see friends, some of his family and Kat who was more than a friend ten years ago. Of course, he won’t admit he wants to see Kat but in a small community, it only takes a day and he “accidentally” runs into her. This book has laughs, tears and great camaraderie among family and friends.

    This is part of a series, and you will enjoy it more if you read the others, but it is not at all necessary, you can read this alone and not be lost one bit!!

She has a stalker, she wants to be independent and Marshall wants to help and honestly has always been in love with her.

The history from the stone in and light house is wonderful, the relationships between family and friends is also amazing. Ms Hart is a wonderful story teller and I for one cannot wait until the next installment.

    I love books that make my heart turn to mush and The Stone Family Lighthouse does just that. It is the story of Kat and Marshall who were best friends from childhood. But misunderstandings and hurt feelings caused them to lose that relationship. As they begin to re-forge their broken friendship, a threat to Kat takes center stage and sends Marshall into protection mode. As the two grow closer, the stalker ups the game. Taylor Hart has written a beautiful, romantic novel with a hint of suspense. I love books that make my heart turn to mush and The Stone Family Lighthouse does just that.

Taylor Hart has written a beautiful, romantic novel with a hint of suspense. Her characters are relatable with strong moral compasses, without being "preachy." I loved the HEA, and when the book ended, my heart was truly nothing but mush. I can't wait to read the next book in this series. 5 stars!

    I gasped & happy sighed all the way through! Seriously - I spent more time gasping through The Stone Family Lighthouse than I did the previous books. Between the ongoing treasure hunt, Kat’s stalker who keeps leaving weird messages and gifts, and everything in Marshall and Kat’s past, I was glued to the edge of my seat!

    I like this next story about the Stone Family that tells about Marshall & Katherine Dixon. They have a history that goes back to high school. Now, 10 yrs later Marshall is back to help his brother run the inn so Trey & his wife can get a vacation. When Marshall & Kat meet Marshall soon learns Kat has a stalker. They each have other personal issues that need to be resolved before they can have their HEA. And don't forget this series has the back-story of the conquistador's gold.

    This is the third Stone family story and it is just as sweet and amazing as the others. Marshall and Kat had been best friends when they where kids. In their story they rekindled that friendship and it turned into more. Kat is sweet and fun. Marshall is strong and caring. Together they work to find out who is stalking Kat and why. Their book is full of mystery and friendship. It is a must read for sure.

    The Stone Family Lighthouse is another amazing, heartwarming, Stone Family romance from Taylor Hart. I love this family of strong brothers and one feisty sister. For 10 years Marshall & Kat have been thinking that they were abandoned by the other. Sparks fly when they reconnect as Marshall cares for the inn. Once Marshall learns Kat has a stalker he is on the case! AS they spend time together, Kat and Marshall finally talk about what happened. The ending to this story is just perfect!

    I loved reading Marshall's story and getting to know him better. He was so different than I pictured him at the beginning of the series. I am so glad we got to know Kat better. She had a harder past than I was expecting and I'm so glad she had Marshall to help her sort through it. I figured out the mystery fairly quickly and wasn't really satisfied with it's conclusion, but I do hope the best for that character. I loved reading Marshall's story and getting to know him better.

    Marshall’s story is delightful. His siblings consider him to be a grump. He shows up to help them…sometimes. But the childhood friend, Kat, sees him differently. I especially loved experiencing the way Marshall protected and cared for her. It was a fabulous story to get lost in. I liked the lighthouse metaphor and how they each were drawn to the strength of each other and the physical lighthouse a well. I liked the analogy. Another wonderful book in the Stone family saga.

    Sweet Happily Ever After. I always enjoy 2nd chance romances. This one with the bit of suspense kept me turning page after page. The characters are well developed and have you hooked right from the start. I’m looking forward to the next in the series. You can read them independently, however each Stone Family member has a unique story you won’t want to miss.

    I had an Advance Readers Copy of this book, but this is my voluntary and honest opinion. Bad choices in the past, a stalker, and non-communication are featured in the plot of Taylor Hart’s latest book in this series. I highly recommend both this book and the previous ones in this series. Central to the series is the family vacation home which has been turned into a bed and breakfast.

    Another great story in the Stone Family saga with Kat and Marshall who have been friends since childhood but she married someone else and now ten years later she owns the local deli and bakery and has a stalker. Marshall is so sweet and protective of Kat and she seems to be falling for him. Well written with great strong characters.

    So much love I like a good second chance romance. Life lessons learned - or at least dealt with - help make a deeper plot and add interest to the evolving romance. The little bit of mystery and maybe surprise held my interest and kept me guessing. I love the Stone family with all their arguments, fights, problems, and love for each other.

    Kat and Kade She opened two shops to make a living to raise her son Kade. Easy, absolutely not plus she was getting some weird notes etc left outside her home. Then Marshall came home to work the Inn so his Brother and sister in law could leave for a two week vacation. And the story grows and grows and swells to the end. Enjoy this great book.
