He goes to the hospital to make sure the young man will be ok, and Amy is in the waiting room awaiting news on her brother. Case assumes that Amy is married to Brian. Finding herself drawn to help she dives head first into the project of the Lighthouse. Case is also drawn to the Lighthouse, finding himself helping Amy with the restoration. He's drawn to this woman, but she is married or so he thinks. Finding out they are brother and sister, makes things look better. Amy is now looking into the history of the Lighthouse. Someone died there years ago, and Amy is determined to find out who and how. Case wants nothing to do with the mystery surrounding the Lighthouse or the town. Of course fate has one mystery that will be solved, and effect Amy and Case in ways they could have never dreamed of.

Author Anne Carter has a charming story here for all to enjoy. One that shows sometimes secrets are best not kept so close, at times honesty is better. Second chances do come to some of us and love, if it is there, will find a way. Point Surrender is an enjoyable read for a sunny afternoon. The story and the lesson it gives is very easily understood.
