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 s

Wow what a jaw dropping page turning beach read. Felt a mix of emotions as I read how Shane’s visit was causing a rift between the beach friends and bringing back past memories and events that they did not want to resurface. Can’t wait to read the continuation of this great series.

Little Beach Bungalow is the ninth book in the Seaside Saga series, and it's my new favorite! When Shane Bradford returns to Stony Point he stirs up anger and resentment with his brother and some of his old friends, but he also stirs up long-lost feelings and memories with one of them, creating problems none of them could foresee. I found this story to be extremely emotional, full of secrets and pain, and tender moments that stole my breath. The characters in this book are like old friends now, ...more

Joanne DeMaio has written another chapter in the lives and times of the beach friends at Stony Point. It’s the 9th book in this series and carries on right from where Night Beach left off. It’s a seaside saga that hooks you right from the start. It draws you into the lives of the characters and makes you want to follow along to be a part of their joys and sorrows of everyday life. I can honestly say what attracts me to these books is the location. The author describes the setting so perfectly, I ...more

As with all the other books she has written about these beach friends as she is telling their story you feel like you are right there with them. Feeling their high points as well as their low points. I just can't seem to get enough of them.

Each book picks up where the last one left off, but she tells enough of the story in each book that you don't feel lost. I really enjoyed this book and couldn't seem to get enough and then it just ended It's not fair that she ended it like that, now I have to

This Will Do

Once again I got swept along into the latest beach drama. This is such a great series. Lots of conflicts to resolve. I really, really didn't want to turn that last page. The ending definitely left me wanting to read the next book NOW!

Good Friends Slide into Hard Times

These special characters grow with each chapter. Breaking hearts and sharing secrets. Can’t read fast enough, but sad to find the last word. Bring on the next saga!

Author never disappoints with each new novel in series.At once you feel reconnected with the family and friends,their joys and heartbreaks.Joanne DeMaio has the rare talent that weaves many twists and turns into the storyline.The setting is so descriptive you feel as though you should apply sunscreen.The cliffhanger ending leaves you counting down until “Every Summer” is released ,to see just how disruptive Shane’s visit truly will be.If you have not started this series you really should.

Continuing saga

Strange ending. Guess this is the authors idea of a cliff hanger. Getting to be more like a soap opera. Think it needs to end pretty soon.

I still love Joanne DeMaio books but Little Beach Bungalow left me worrying about Maris at the end of the story. I loved that Cecila got out her anger that Salvador De Luca had died. She was angry that he had kept his heart condition from her and did not propose marriage to her until it was too late. Cecila raged at him with Shane present and later at the whole plan to get her come back and dissuade Elsa from selling. In truth, I think that Cecila needed more time to herself to recover from her ...more

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

Little Beach Bungalow by Joanne DeMaio
Story picks up where the last one left off but can be read as a standalone because you are given vague glimpses into the past.
Right off the bat I'm loving the new words I'm learning and how at ease I feel as if I'm right there at the shoreline.
It's a dreary, in the 40's kind of day and I feel the warmth from their sun.
This book encompasses many lives and as an extra bonus the manuscript is being urned into a book. There are so many sides to this book, can't

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

I just finished the last page of Little Beach Bungalow and my heart feels like it is skipping a beat. I am going to have a hard time waiting to read Joanne DeMaio's next book Every Summer. These series of beach books becomes more dear with each new story and this 9th book is awesome, leaving literally a cliffhanger of suspense. The characters are so real with life dilemmas, mistaken ideas, secrets and past events that keep on bringing up their history leading to timely connections that can alter ...more

The Stony Point Beach Friends

Please keep writing more books. This particular book has ended with a cliff hanger. Two characters have their marriage in an unbalanced state. What will happen to them in the next book?

Entertaining story of the residents of a small beach town in CT. This book is really part of a series that continues on about how each couple meets and makes it or not, but each book can be read individually.

Wow! Another great story in The Seaside Saga series. I had a hard time putting it down!
How one man can wreak such havoc in so many lives is incredible. So many secrets that revolve around this one man. And the cliff hangar at the end has me waiting anxiously for the next book.
