School’s out for summer and the beach traffic is booming again here on Isle of Palms, South Carolina, as the vacationers, day trippers, and locals alike flock to the beach. There are two things people always want to know when they visit this special beach town… where should I eat and what book should I read.

For food–I recommend Long Island Cafe and Sea Biscuit Cafe. There are many fun places to dine on the island, but these are my go-to spots!

For a good read–I hope you’ll grab a copy of my new novel, BEACH HOUSE FOR RENT, in stores June 20th. To celebrate this month’s release, I’m going on a coast-to coast book tour! Author luncheons, cocktail parties, book talks, fundraisers, and a sunset celebration…there are so many special book signing events on the calendar. I hope you’ll join me at an event near you!

One of the book events is right here on the island and will benefit Audubon South Carolina.

JUNE 24th, 6:00 – 9:00 PM
WILD DUNES RESORT
ISLE OF PALMS, SC
RSVP 843-886-2174

Join me at the luxurious Wild Dunes Resort for an outdoor sunset celebration featuring southern food, music, signature cocktails provided by Firefly Distillery, and a book signing. This book event will benefit Audubon South Carolina. All guests will be entered into a raffle to win a 2-night getaway to the pristine and private Dewees Island. It’s my happy place!

Wild Dunes is offering a discounted room rate for guests attending the book party!  CLICK HERE for more information, or call 843-886-2174.

And, the first 100 guests to arrive will receive an eco-friendly tote bag like this one (pug not included).

BEACH HOUSE FOR RENT is a book of my heart. It’s the fourth installment of my ‘Beach House Series’ but written as a stand alone, so don’t worry if you haven’t read the others in the series. The majestic loggerhead sea turtle makes a few appearances in this novel (fans of THE BEACH HOUSE; BEACH HOUSE MEMORIES; and SWIMMING LESSONS will appreciate that), but it’s the migrating shorebirds and pelicans of the island that serve as the backdrop of this novel.

I wish you all a wonderful summer season! Whether you’re able to escape to the beach, lake, mountains, or some other beautiful view, remember to take along some good books and be kind to nature. Leave only your footprints behind. And I hope to see you during book tour!

 

Much love,

Mary Alice
