Review: Whispers on the Dock by Evangeline Kelley


Fascinating but gentle, full of the everyday concerns of people ranging in age from 8 to 80 and the tension-filled lives of conflicted people from the past, Whispers on the Dock is the most satisfying story I have read in a long time.

Sam, Caroline, and Gracie, the three middle-aged sisters who bought Misty Harbor Inn in Seaside Harmony and opened it in Sunflower Summer, are settling well into their roles as innkeepers.  However, Whispers on the Dock is about their personal lives: Caroline’s wedding plans, Sam’s blackberry cobbler, and Gracie’s granddaughter Evelyn. What does Caroline really want her wedding to be like, and why can’t she like any of the houses George finds?  Will entering the blackberry cobbler in a baking contest really lead to intrigue and hard feelings, or will Sam be able to live her newfound faith?  Why is little Evelyn so very withdrawn?  And what about Hannah Montague, the mysterious woman who disappeared from Misty Harbor Inn years ago under suspicious circumstances?  These questions, the mysterious inn itself, and old, old secrets fill this cozy book with just the right amount of gentle suspense.

Whispers on the Dock is a lovely novel about family, discoveries, food, love, and faith.  I highly recommend it.
