The Boardwalk is here! The eagerly anticipated second volume in the Rehoboth Beach Reads series is now in stock. The book contains winning stories from the 2014 Rehoboth Beach Reads Short Story Contest. The first volume of the series, The Beach House, was the top-selling book at Browseabout this summer.
The Boardwalk contains twenty-five never-been-published stories (each by a different author) that are all set in Rehoboth and fit the theme “The Boardwalk.” The stories mention many local streets, restaurants, hotels, and activities. “People love to read about places they are familiar with,” says Cat & Mouse Press publisher Nancy Sakaduski. “These stories, which are entertaining, well-written, and amazingly diverse, are perfect for beach reading, but just as enjoyable for fireside reading during the winter.”
“These are more than just “they went down to the beach and had a picnic” stories, says Sakaduski. The stories deal with such wide-ranging premises as a romantic boardwalk scavenger hunt, a ghost creating havoc in a boardwalk hotel, a seagull’s view of Rehoboth, and a famous rock star visiting a local restaurant. There is even a Sherlock Holmes story in this year’s collection: “The Case of the Artist’s Stain,” a clever tale that earned author Joseph Crossen the $500 cash first-place prize provided by Browseabout. NPR personality Liane Hansen was one of the first to read the book. “I love these stories,” she said. “Now when I sit on a white bench and people-watch, I’m reminded that there is more to the Rehoboth boardwalk than meets the eye.”
