We are big fans of Marybeth Whalen’s here at Pelican Bookstore! She has done signings with us at Silver Coast Winery, and she writes about our beloved Sunset Beach. So, needless to say, we were ecstatic when we saw her new book was coming out soon. This one is called The Bridge Tender and like one of our favorites The Mailbox, this one is also set in Sunset Beach! Here’s the description from her blog:
“Emily must realize that her dreams didn’t have to die with her first love. When Emily Shaw, a young widow, learns that her late husband’s last surprise for her involves returning to Sunset Beach, North Carolina, to realize an old dream of theirs, she reluctantly embarks on a summer of discovery in the midst of grief. There, in the oasis of the beach community, she meets a host of townspeople with their own broken dreams and unexpected situations. As the island citizens divide over the fate of a nostalgic bridge, Emily happens upon a man who just may be the one to restore her faith in dreams, hope, and possibly love.”
We are excited for this one! Hopefully Marybeth will come to Sunset Beach again this year for another signing. We’ll keep you posted!
Our friend Sharon from Createadore Videos and On The Beach Photography put together a wonderful video from the Mary Alice Monroe signing at Silver Coast Winery. Take a look at all the great fun we had and don’t forget if you didn’t pick up your copy of The Summer Girls that night we still have plenty at the bookstore!
