Have you ever read a book that you just never wanted to end? Usually by the time I get to the end of a book, even one that I have really enjoyed, I am ready to finish it and move on. But, as I saw the end of Hatteras Girl coming, I did not want it to be over. Alice Wisler has an amazing ability to create a story that touches me more than any other author I have ever read, and I read a lot. I noticed that Hatteras Girl is a little different than Alice's previous two novels. Hatteras Girl had fewer quirky characters than the other two novels, but the characters in this book were charming and inviting. I really enjoyed this change because it added so much to the overall warm and happy feel of this book.

Hatteras Girl takes place in the Outer Banks of North Carolina. I have lived in North Carolina for only three years, but I love living here and I love books that are set in my new home state. I love living in the south and I love Alice's way of bringing the warmth and hospitality of the south into her stories. Jackie grew up in the Outer Banks and has happy childhood memories at the Bailey House and I loved the nostalgic feeling Alice created as we reminisce with Jackie about her happy memories of the Bailey House.

One of the themes that can be found in all of Alice's novels so far is loss. Alice is no stranger to loss and grief as she lost her four year old son, Daniel in 1997. She always writes about the losses that her characters experience with tenderness and the hope of healing. Jackie's best friend, Minnie, is experiencing tremendous grief after losing her husband and the hope and healing that takes place in Minnie is inspiring. The loss and grief in Hatteras Girl never feels heavy or depressing.

Hatteras Girl by Alice J. Wisler is the third book I’ve read by this author. This is fun, clean fiction. It begins with yet another unsatisfying blind date set up by her well-meaning Aunt Sheerly. Jackie Donovan is sipping Diet Pepsi and waiting for him to show up. This poor guy is another wealthy, single loser. He’s so boring Jackie makes an excuse and leaves him sitting there—after they’ve eaten. Jackie has always wanted to live near the sea, and she has a dream: to own and operate an old bed a breakfast that used to serve lemon cookies and raspberry soda. In the middle of the book, she does an interview with a man too handsome, suave, and all the rest for his own good and falls hard for him. The rest of the book is about love, truth, trust, revelations, and the old bed and breakfast. If you enjoy a good, clean, thoughtful and fun book that includes a bratty kid, lots of love, and plenty of losses, you’ll enjoy this one. By the way, it has a happy ending.

This book is like reading a journal of the main character's life.I say this because it includes some details that you might notice in real life but not necessarily think to include in a book. It would catch me by surprise at times. It also makes the book move at a slower pace. But I didn't mind that. The story is interesting enough to make up for that. There is some tension and drama, but they are of the real life kind. Recommend.

This author has an amazing way of making the reader feel like they are actually there on North Carolina coast. The characters are quaint and lovable and this story made me want to be right there among them. I could almost taste the lemon cookies and raspberry soda! Great story of patience, perseverance and God's providence.

Hatteras Girl is an easy read. Love the story line and if you are familiar with North Carolina, you will have something in common. Alice Wisler does a good job of bringing you into the story. She also includes recipes from the book in the back. I have read all three of her books and have pre-ordered her fourth. I enjoy her writing and it's a fun read. The plots are a bit predictable but still a good read.

Almost two years ago, I was fortunate enough to spend just a few wonderful hours in North Carolina's Outer Banks. My visit was far too short, allowing me the opportunity to take in only a small fraction of the beauty and charm that exists there in the unique beach communities. So, when I saw that "Hatteras Girl" was set in the Outer Banks, I grabbed it, hoping it would transport me back there.

But, I was disappointed. Honestly, I struggled with this book from the very beginning ... where I discovered it's written in the first-person, a style I rarely enjoy. The storyline took a really long time to come together, then picked up momentum in the middle ... almost enough to hook me. Unfortunately, it fizzled into an anti-climactic ending. Many characters among the huge cast had potential, but most were underdeveloped, probably because of the limitations inherent in utilizing a first-person tense. Also, they all seemed to have goofy names or nicknames. My guess is that this was a way to portray small town familiarity, but I just found it distracting.

I hate writing bad reviews, so let me add some positives to the mix. First of all, I'd be remiss if I didn't credit the author for choosing a wonderful setting for her story. It is, after all, what made me decide to read it. And, it is very obvious from her writing that she has first-hand knowledge of the area. Also, I can't say for certain, having never read any of Wisler's work before, but it appears she may have a quite a knack for creating characters. This book was busting at the seams with them! And, I liked them; I just didn't get to know them very well. And, last but not least, it was a very pleasant surprise to discover the recipes at the end. I may just have to try out Mrs. Bailey's lemon cookies.
