Just finished the last of the series that I have, I think there are a couple of more. Good comfort reading for anyone missing the NC coast, and the stories that go along with it. The writing is good, if not exceptional, but the stories are told with enthusiasm and joy. It made we want to do a tour of all the places mentioned, to go back and re-visit Bath, Ocracoake, Edenton, New Bern and the rest. Good, fun reading.
