These stories were selected by a panel of judges from more than 100 entries submitted. The theme was "the beach house," and all of the stories had to have a connection to Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. There is something for everyone here, from romance, history, and intrigue to jilted brides, NASCAR drivers, cowboys, and even a ghost or two.
A pair of elderly ladies who "break out" of the old age home to go wild in Rehoboth, mysterious coins found on the beach, a romance that goes sideways "somewhere between crab cakes and cocktails," real witches at the Sea Witch Festival, a beach funeral, and a bathing suit that may - or may not - be magical. Not to mention that the judges from a certain short story contest are being murdered. This year's winning authors have served up a 24 tales of fun, all for your enjoyment.
A fortune-telling machine with a mind of its own, professional killers hanging out by the hotel pool, granny run amok in Funland… What’s happened to Rehoboth? Some very talented writers have created a book of great beach reads, that’s what!
Whether coming to terms with lost love, or facing real and imagined demons on an amusement park ride, these women do what it takes to survive … and then some. Stick with them through sunny days, shifting sands, stormy skies, and starry nights as they learn about life and love at the beach.
Smile with recognition as characters in the stories run into the surf in Rehoboth Beach, ride the ferry from Lewes to Cape May, barhop in Dewey, sip lattes in Bethany Beach, stroll on the boardwalk in Ocean City, and visit the Wildwood amusement pier.
