“Whispers on the Dock” is the third book in the Postcards From Misty Harbor Inn series and was just as enjoyable as the first two. Each book in the series was very readable and just the right thing for a relaxing afternoon or evening. I liked the fact that the three sisters featured in the story were a good bit older than the usual primary characters found in Christian novels, particularly since I am a member of their generation myself. The plot and dialogue moved so smoothly that it was difficult to imagine that the book had been written by four different women. A little mystery, a little romance, and other challenging situations held my interest until the end.
The authors’ description of life in Nantucket and the inn were vivid and made me want to see it for myself. I thought the situations experienced by the sisters were realistic and their characters were quite believable. A strong message of faith was evident but subtle. I liked how Sam’s conscience bothered her when she did something she shouldn’t have and the way she resolved the issue.
“Whispers on the Dock” and the entire series are a charming way to pass the time and I hope to see more from this talented team of authors.

ABOUT THE BOOK:
Book 3 in the Postcards from Misty Harbor Inn series.
Three sisters. A charming inn. Hints of mystery and romance. And a gorgeous seaside setting. Escape to Misty Harbor Inn.
As Nantucket reaches the pinnacle of its summer glory, and the Marris sisters welcome guests at Misty Harbor Inn, youngest sister Sam Carter enters her mother’s cobbler recipe in the Summerfest baking contest. But she faces a formidable opponent, a past winner who is determined to keep her title even if it means stooping to dirty tactics. Can Sam’s newfound faith help her rise above the fray and reach out to this lonely woman? Meanwhile, an elderly guest arrives who knows the inn’s history, and the sisters are stunned to learn that their late mother lived there as a child. But she told them she’d never been to Nantucket until her honeymoon! Through the woman’s reminiscences and photos, the sisters make an intriguing discovery — not only about the mysterious Hannah Montague, the young woman who disappeared from the house in 1880, but also about their own family history.
Readers will delight in the inviting Nantucket setting and be enthralled by the adventures of these sisters who reunite to bring their mother’s Misty Harbor dreams to life.
