The Dewberry Beach Books

This book definitely belongs in the 'I love it' category.

The Shore House will warm your heart while making you want to visit the New Jersey shore in this summer tale of truths exposed and forgiveness.

When the Bennett family arrive at the shore house to spend the summer together, they bring more baggage than just suitcases…

When Kaye Bennett, matriarch of the Bennett family, summons her adult children to the shore house, she anticipates a vacation full of nostalgia. But when Kaye’s son and daughter arrive, late and uncooperative, it becomes clear the family desperately need to reconnect.

A story of family, forgiveness, and second chances...

The Inlet Beach novels

If you like Gilmore Girls’ Stars Hollow, you’ll love INLET BEACH . A small beach town on the coast of Oregon, Inlet Beach is the kind of place where everyone knows everyone else, and each of them has an opinion they don’t mind sharing.

Five Stars

Wonderful story about a family reuniting and rediscovering their home and their hometown. I think Heidi has created a strong basis for many more stories.

Highly recommended.

The Lowcountry novels

Spanish moss dripping from the branches of gnarled oak trees, afternoon tea in a quiet garden, an antebellum mansion that has been home to seven generations of Rutledge women.

Stories set in the heart of Charleston, South Carolina.

How good was this book?

I was so captivated by the story that I started in the morning and read through the entire text until turning the lights out in the evening with a satisfied smile.

Heidi is a master author who has found the story-writing groove.

Things We Surrender


More about Heidi Hostetter ...

I love books, always have. 


There’s just something about the way a story unfolds that feels magical. When I was a kid, I used to ride my bike down to the public library on Saturday mornings and getting lost in the stacks. In the afternoon I’d pedal back up the hill, my basket loaded with books I couldn't wait to read. I'd spend the rest of the weekend lost in adventure.


When I started writing my own stories, I included all the the things I liked to read: description that bring settings to life, characters who become friends, struggles that reflect real life, and always –– always –– a happy ending.  

I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I’ve enjoyed writing them. Connect with me on my Author Page on Facebook, or send me email. I'd love to hear from you.
