Downtown Books to host Jan Dawson book signing on First Friday

By on March 28, 2024

It’s April and Spring has sprung which means First Friday is here! Downtown Books will welcome Hatteras Island author Jan Dawson on Friday, April 5, for a meet and greet and book signing featuring her latest Hatteras Island romance.

Hooked On You.

Fishing. For fish or for men. She really didn’t want to be involved with either one. It was supposed to be a long weekend of rest, reading, and forgetting. Her heart was still heavy from her recent divorce, and she longed to get lost in books and the occasional bottle of wine. But then those plans quickly changed, and she realized that she would to have to face her feelings of insecurity and failure in the most unusual circumstances. Jenni wasn’t ready for another man. But when she’s thrown into a fishing tournament while visiting a friend, she finds there are plenty of men out there angling for more than just a fish. And it seems one man has his hook baited for her. Why does she do so many foolish things around him when she just wants to disappear?’ 

Hooked On You is a stand-alone sweet romance that brings back some favorite characters from Storm Season, which was a popular 2023 title with locals and visitors.

Jan will be signing both books, greeting friends and meeting fans from 6pm – 8pm, Friday April 5th. Members of Downtown Books’ Inner Circle are invited to a private reception with the author at 5:15.  Pre-reserve books online at or by calling 252-473-1056.

First Friday is a free, fun, family friendly event taking place throughout Downtown Manteo featuring live music, art show openings, restaurant specials, later shop hours, trunk shows, book signings and more. It’s a great night to come downtown and meet friends at the bookstore!
