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?

My Review:

Hatteras Girl by Alice J. Wisler is an excellent read! Jackie Donovan is a young woman who longs to own a Bed & Breakfast and is determined to do whatever it takes to fulfill her dream! Will she find love as well as achieving her dream? Minnie, who is Jackie's best friend and roommate, also shares the dream of co-owning the Bailey House B&B. Then there is Davis Erickson, the man who holds the key to the Bailey House. He is a young, handsome, and available. Will he capture Jackie's heart? Will he find the perfect person to run the Bailey House B&B the way it used to be? You will have to pick this one up to find out!!

I hope you will! Hatteras Girl is a wonderful book! I give this ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
