Hatteras Girl: Book Review

Hatteras Girl

Hatteras Girl is a charming story of Jackie, a young woman who is 29 at the beginning of the book and 30 at the end.  Like many single women, she wants to be married.  Like some 30 year olds, she wonders if she will ever achieve her career goals.  Her goal is to own a particular bed and breakfast and so far she has had no luck in trying to find the owner.  One day her boss sends her to interview a Realtor, and she finds that he is not only handsome and charming, he also knows about "her" bed and breakfast.  Will she get the guy?  Will she get the B&B?

Other characters include her best friend and roommate, Minnie, who is the mother of a four year old.  Minnie's husband was killed a year ago in a boating accident.  Jackie and Minnie used to play at the B&B as kids and dreamed of owning it together.  Minnie's son Zane is a cutie who misses his dad and is suffering from a lack of attention from his mom, who has to work two jobs to make ends meet.  Minnie's mom, Irvy, is in a nursing home following a stroke, but tried hard to warn Jackie about something.  Buck waits tables at her favorite eatery.  Buck and her brother were high school friends, and he is a good friend to have.

This is a light and fluffy romantic novel.  It is classified as Christian fiction which in this case means that it is mentioned that the characters go to church weekly and there are a few references to God's will.  Of course God works everything out in the end.  If you like "women's fiction", you'll probably like this one, whether or not you usually like Christian fiction, since the Christian elements are few and subtle.  Grade:  B

I'd like to thank Bethany House Book Reviewers for sending me a complimentary copy of this book.  I was specifically told that negative reviews were acceptable.
