Hatteras Girl by Alice J. Wisler tells about young, single Jackie Donovan who has two dreams: to own Bailey Bed and Breakfast and to meet the man of her dreams. Told in first person, Jackie makes her living as a writer for Lighthouse Views, the local magazine. Her main job is to interview local business owners and she thinks she finally finds the key to her happiness when she interviews Davis Erickson who happens to own Bailey Bed and Breakfast. Jackie falls head over heels in love. But she begins to pick up clues that all is not right when her best friend avoids talking about Davis and she meets people who are not too fond of the man. Will Jackie's dreams be shattered or will she actually fulfill the pursuit of the Bailey House as well as finding the man she loves?
This story introduced a lot of colorful characters who I immediately fell in love with. I really liked the perspective of first person told from Jackie's viewpoint. It adds a lot of mystery and connection with the main character. I was impressed with how all the story elements fit together and I really liked how the ending was a sweet surprise. Prepare to be enthralled with the unique descriptions and enticing story line. I look forward to more books by Alice J. Wisler.
