Beach Mysteries


Beach Mysteries short stories

Beach Mysteries Anthology

What is a beach mystery? Is it a mermaid washing up on shore? A beach cottage with a spirit? A murder on the boardwalk? A painting with a past? Beach Mysteries includes mysteries of many kinds. You’ll meet hit men, ghosts, and crime solvers. Find long-lost treasure, encounter figures from the past, and watch tourists in distress.
