Night Beach by Joanne DeMaio ~ My Thoughts #NightBeach


Night Beach

Night Beach by Joanne DeMaio
Series: The Seaside Saga #8
Print and ebook, 198 pages
Published March 5, 2019 by Joanne DeMaio

From the New York Times bestselling author of Castaway Cottage comes a novel as captivating as the moonlit sea.

Everything was in place for the perfect beachside gathering. Lace-wrapped jars hung from white chairs on the sand. Paper lanterns and tiki torches glimmered in the twilight evening. A rowboat draped with roses and vines waited in the wings. Love floated on the salt air.

Until the arrival of a mysterious guest named Shane Bradford, a lobsterman with a tangled past in this little New England beach town.

Like a sudden sea breeze, the special evening quickly turns. And the residents of Stony Point must tread the darker water Shane brings to their Night Beach.


My thoughts about Night Beach ~~

(I love to note the first lines of the books I'm reading. First lines can really grab a reader's attention and I love seeing where the author takes the reader after their first lines.)

First line—"Never turn your back on the sea."

Night Beach is book #8 in Joanne DeMaio's wonderful Seaside Saga series. I've read every one of them and I find myself falling more in love with Stony Point and all of the wonderful characters with each book. I've come to think of the people from Stony Point as family and I love going back to check up on their lives. 

I love how each book picks right up where the last one ended. This is a series that would be so easy to binge read because you just want the story to keep going, continuing on with the love and friendships. Sure there are some troubled times, some conflicts among family and friends, but everyone comes together to help each other through the tough times, while also rejoicing in the good times. I've become so emotionally wrapped up in everyone's live, that I experience the tears of sadness and the elation of joy right along with them. 

"No, you don't always get to to choose who or what washes up in life's driftline."

I loved my recent, brief visit to Stony Point and I'm excited to go back soon. Come join me, why don't you? 

I received a copy of Night Beach from the author in exchange for my honest review.
