From the book: Jackie Donovan prays for two things: an honest, wonderful man to marry and to own a bed-and-breakfast on the beautiful Outer Banks of North Carolina. In the meantime, she works for Lighthouse Views, writing articles about 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 House, a fabulous old home located right next to the ocean, a place where Jackie spent many happy childhood afternoons. But the Bailey House has strange stories and secrets surrounding it—not to mention its outrageous price tag.
When Jackie meets handsome Davis Erickson, who holds the key to the Bailey property, she believes God has answered both her prayers. But as Jackie learns some disturbing details about Davis's past, she begins to wonder if her heart has lead her astray. Will she risk her long-held dreams to find out the truth?

From me: To be quite honest, with all of the holiday craziness going on right now, my brain is having serious issues stringing words together. So, let me just say, Hatteras Girl was a very enjoyable read for me. The book was well-written and moved along, I hate stories that drag. The ending was perfect and, to make things better, the author included recipes for the many yummy foods that were mentioned throughout. I'm trying the lemon cookies first :)
My Rating: 5 out of 5. Loved it. Will read it again!
Thanks to Bethany House Publishers for offering me a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion.
