Little Beach Bungalow by Joanne DeMaio ~ My Thoughts


Little Beach Bungalow

Little Beach Bungalow
 by Joanne DeMaio

Series: The Seaside Saga #9
Print and ebook, 332 pages
Published May 14th 2019 by Joanne DeMaio

From the New York Times bestselling author of Night Beach comes a novel as alluring as a weathered cottage by the sea.

The cottage is nestled along winding Sea View Road, set back from the sandy street. Surrounded by swaying dune grass, it's a shabby little beach bungalow with an open back porch overlooking a sparkling Long Island Sound. A sign propped in the front window says: For Rent.

Well, the cottage was For Rent ... until one particular lobsterman booked a summer stay there. As Shane Bradford settles into the New England beach town of Stony Point, he unloads more than boxes and duffels. With his arrival, he unpacks secrets, and entwined histories, among his circle of beach friends. Old loves surface. New ones emerge, too.

Little Beach Bungalow follows Shane's simmering summer days back on the Connecticut shore, and much is in store.


My thoughts about Little Beach Bungalow ~~

(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—"The cottage is a stone’s throw from Long Island Sound—and looks it. Years of standing beside that salt water have left the old beach house seaworn."

Little Beach Bungalow takes the reader, once again, back to the beautiful beach town of Stony Point. We get to catch up with the lives of everyone in the community. It's a community full of love, drama, and hopefully forgiveness. 

Shane's return to Stony Point stirs up a lot of emotions and feelings from the past. Everyone's lives are turned upside down when he then decides to stick around. Can the past be forgiven and forgotten? And how are all of their lives going to change? 

I absolutely adore this series and I love going back to this wonderful place with all the caring and gracious people who have become my friends. And I love how Joanne always leaves her stories with a little twist at the end that makes me want more. 

Joanne's beach books make me feel like I'm taking a little vacation to the sand and water and I love my time there. Little Beach Bungalow truly is the perfect summer read.  

I received a copy of Little Beach Bungalow from the author and this is my honest opinion of the book.
