Book Review - Whispers on the Dock


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.


Evangeline Kelley is the pen name for the writing team of Patti Berg, Pam Hanson & Barbara Andrews, and Camy Tang, the four authors who collaborated to create Postcards from Misty Harbor Inn. Each of them has published novels individually, but this is their first series together.


This is the third book in the Postcards from Misty Harbor Inn series. The sisters are very likeable and I love the feeling of the book. Very sweet and calming yet with a bit of mystery. 

I did read the first two books of this series, so it helped to understand what was going on. While this book does stand alone, there are people and situations that are spoken about that could leave on in the dark a bit. However, it's not enough to put you off this book.

There is a mystery from the past that has something to do with the house the three sisters live in now. They are trying to figure out what happened to some of the people that lived there and, in the process, they meet a new person that once lived in the house as a girl many years ago. They also discover hidden passages and mysterious messages. 

I love that the sisters are all older (I can relate! lol). They have family issues and there is a baking contest that is very serious but it opens doors to show the love of God to others. I really liked that we got everything wrapped up in this book as I was ready to understand the answers to the mysteries! It's nice to see the different levels of the sisters walk with God, too. It's rather like real life. 

I enjoyed this book. It was quite lovely to sit with a cup of tea and read. I was surprised at how quick the read was as I found it hard to put the book down. It's just a sweet book that you'll enjoy!
