Beach Holidays


Beach Holidays Now Available

Rehoboth HolidaysThe tenth book in the Rehoboth Beach Reads series, Beach Holidays, is now available. The anthology contains the winning stories from the 2022 short story contest.

Delve into this delectable selection of 27 short story beach reads, set in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, and featuring holidays real and imagined. Beach Holidays contains stories of Fourth of July, Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas, but you’ll also find National Grilled Cheese Sandwich Day, DALD Day, Pi Day, and Stacy McGowen Day. You’ll find out that a wrong number can be just the thing you need, that the Sea Witch isn’t the only apparition in Rehoboth around Halloween, and that a Summer Valentine’s Day makes perfect sense. So, no matter what holiday is on the horizon, curl up and enjoy Beach Holidays.
