What does “beach house” mean to you? Is it a sanctuary, a place to escape? The setting for treasured memories? A spot for wild and crazy escapades? Or is it a playground for romance, mystery, or adventure? The beach house was these things and more for the authors of these short stories, which were selected from submissions to the Rehoboth Beach Reads Short Story Competition. There is something for everyone here, from romance, history, and intrigue to jilted brides, NASCAR drivers, cowboys, and even a ghost or two. One of the great joys of a beach vacation is reading. Curling up with a book—perhaps even one with a beach setting—releases the mind from its usual work and focuses it instead on an intriguing mystery, a romantic romp, or a heart-warming memoir. These stories provide that kind of experience. From a gangster noir thriller reimagined in a contemporary setting to a game of "cocktail croquet," and from a poetic tour of the seasons to a first summer romance, these writers created captivating stories you will want to read again and again.
