Firefly Beach Home Page
An unexplained light in the woods beckons Beth toward mystery and murder.
Paint, canvas and a peaceful cottage on the Maine coast provide a welcome refuge for Beth LaMonte. A mysterious light intrudes on her peace and leads her to a secret beach where she finds the diary of a girl who disappeared in 1975...
Now Beth is on another mission to not only bury her own past, but to put to rest the spirit of Firefly Beach.
In a clearing, somewhere between the edge of the forest and a jagged cliff, a lone firefly danced in graceful circles. It was beautiful, stealing attention away from the moonlight shimmering on Penobscot Bay. For a brief moment, the captivating creature was more hypnotic than the wispy clouds that brushed the face of the moon.
There was something highly unusual about that firefly. Beth couldn’t quite put her finger on it. She had only seen fireflies once before, when she went camping with the Girl Scouts. She vaguely recalled their random flashing in the woods and how magical they seemed to her as a ten-year-old. She remembered dozens of fireflies, blinking sporadically, flittering about as if they were at a cocktail party, all vying for center stage, and all talking at once.
She looked out at the peculiar glowing insect and realized that there was definitely something different about that firefly.
It did not blink. . . and it was all alone.

"I started this book with the expectation that it would be a run-of-the-mill murder mystery. Boy, was I wrong. Ms. Pentermann leads the reader along a very winding road filled with interesting segues and delightful characters."

Coffee Time Romance - 5 Cup Review
"This is such a gorgeous setting for a story. The characters are mysterious, but colorful. Beth and Kenny both began to feel like old friends as I read on. The entire cast of Firefly Beach feels that way. It is like Ms. Pentermann stepped into my hometown and picked out the individuals for her tale. I was on the edge of my seat every time Beth got one step closer to solving the mystery. I would encourage you to put this book high on your list."
