I am one of those lovers of a mystery. Hatteras Girl by Alice J. Wisler kept me guessing what what going to happen in this wonderful book about a girl named Jackie who is near 30 and has been unlucky in love. She dreams of marrying a wonderful, honest man and of owning The Bailey House, a bread and breakfast that she grew up visiting as a young girl. The Bailey House holds many special memories for her but has been closed for some time and she desperately wants to get more information on purchasing it.
Jackie has been set up on numerous blind dates to which she has never had a second date with. She works for Lighthouse Views, writing articles about local business owners. She happens to do an interview with Davis Erikson, whom has knowledge of The Bailey House owners and whom she is instantly attracted to. The attraction seems mutual, the couple start dating. Jackie thinks that she has finally found the answer to all of her prayers, a good man and an opportunity to get the bread and breakfast, but there are mysteries surrounding The Bailey House that Jackie has trouble finding answers to. Davis doesn't appear to be the man that she thought he was. Jackie is on the verge of losing her dreams. Yet, this author throws in a wonderful twist that I was very pleased with.
This is one of those books that I didn't want to put down until I finished it. One of those books you sit up all night reading. I would recommend this as a great read and will be sure to pass this one along to my friends!
