From the New York Times bestselling author of Beach Breeze comes a novel as sweet as the salt air by the sea.
It was going to be exquisite: a rambling, shingled New England cottage converted into a grand beach inn. Nestled among hydrangeas and swaying dune grasses, this seaside haven would welcome guests on the Connecticut shore. Except the little beach town of Stony Point is no longer feeling like a haven to its residents. Residents, including a brooding Jason Barlow, the esteemed architect in charge of the inn's renovation--until a stubborn, grief-induced For Sale sign puts an end to that.
But with a little help from the beach friends, anything is possible. In an effort to save the inn and convince its cherished owner to stay, the friends band together to stage an inn-tervention, shaking up their own lives in the process.
A new season of love, adventure, and heart-healing awaits in the quaint seaside village of Stony Point. So pull up a sand chair and book your stay for a page-turning getaway in The Beach Inn.
DeMaio is brilliant. Her books are heartwarming and dreamy...between the setting and the characters it is incredibly easy to get lost in her books. In DeMaio's newest book, The Beach Inn, you are once again thrust into the lives of characters that you can relate to, into a setting you want to escape to and into a story that is hard to put down. DeMaio has a way to capture the human heart with its struggles and triumphs and everything in between. She knows about the human condition and writes in a way that makes the readers feel what the characters feel, to get frustrated with them (and at them at times) and cheer for them along the way. This is another great read by a very given voice in stroytelling. A great summer read and one that is perfect for book clubs.
