Hatteras Girl is the latest from Alice Wisler and a very enjoyable read. Told from Jackie Donovan's perspective as she approaches the big three-oh, the book has delightful pacing. It's not rushed, but instead has the feel of a vacation read. Jackie has harbored the dream of running a particular bed and breakfast since she was a child. Now that she's almost thirty, she wonders if that dream will ever come to pass. Add in dreams of finding a man who will love her and the "help" of her family in finding that man. The book is filled with charming characters and a great setting that pulled me in. Everything's not roses for Jackie, but she learns what's worth fighting for and when to step back...all while pursuing dreams for her future. I enjoyed this read and think it's perfect for a quick weekend escape.

ABOUT THE BOOK
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?
