“Were you one of those color-outside-the-line sort of kids? That doesn’t mean you’re creative, you know, it means you’re wrong.”
The Lighthouse family is the Addams Family meets The Royal Tenenbaums. They are quirky, insular, devoted to each other and completely obsessed with murder. The island they live on has been haunted by a serial killer and their lives have been focused on solving this crime and honoring murder victims.
Dahlia and her siblings are brought home by the death of her father, all except for her twin brother, Andy, who fled the home years ago and never spoke to any of them again. When they go to bury her father they discover Andy’s body. Dahlia is horrified and determined to find out what happened. Her remaining brother and sister involve themselves in macabre memorial projects that are absolutely insane would they be any other people in any other family.
There are some interesting twists along the way and regardless of the underlying mystery, these are just interesting characters to read about. I was hoping for a slightly different ending but I was satisfied with where it landed. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
