Book Review : Hatteras Girl

Multipublished author Alice J. Wisler creates real and believable characters in Hatteras Girl.

Backcover copy:

There are two things twenty-nine-year-old Jackie Donovan asks God for: an honest, wonderful man to marry, and to own a bed-and-breakfast in the Outer Banks region. In the meantime, Jackie works for Lighthouse Views magazine, writing articles about other local business owners, and intrepidly goes on the blind dates set up by her well-meaning but oh-so-clueless relatives.

There’s one specific property Jackie dreams of purchasing: the Bailey Place, a fabulous old home where Jackie spent many happy childhood afternoons, a place that has now fallen into disrepair because of its outrageous price tag.

When Jackie meets handsome Davis Erickson, who holds the key to the Bailey Place, Jackie is sure God has answered both her prayers. But as Jackie learns some disturbing details about Davis’s past, she begins to question her own motivation. Will she risk her long-held dreams to find out the truth?

Hatteras Girl, set on the coast of North Carolina, has amazing word painting throughout. The descriptions in this novel made me feel like I was there with the characters. Alice’s strong characterization made the characters very real to me–I truly cared about what happened to them, well most of them :-), at the end of the book.

I enjoyed Hatteras Girl and hope you do as well!
