Book set in my city or state is today’s topic and it’s a goodie! I live in rural New Hampshire and the state boasts many wonderful authors in their own right who use the beauty and majesty of the state in their works, myself included ( more on that, later). These authors include, but are not limited to,
Jodi Picoult: Change of Heart, Handle with Care, The Nineteen Minutes
John Irving: A prayer for Owen Meany, The Hotel New Hampshire,
John Knowles: A Separate Peace
Anita Shreve: The Weight of Water
Thorton Wilder: Our Town
Barbara Delinsky: The Carpenter’s lady
And I would be remiss if I didn’t include myself in this group. I have an entire series, A MATCH MADE IN HEAVEN,
(book 3 – Baked with Love coming Winter 2020) *** this is not the real cover, just a mock-up I made!
set in Heaven, NH, a fiction town that has many eery similarities to the town I live in and my newest book, VANILLA WITH A TWIST set in the Seacoast region of New Hampshire.
So, you can see, New Hampshire is, has been, and will continue to be, a very popular state to set a book in.
I was lucky enough to actually watch the filming of this scene in our Central Square. Cool, no?
Let’s see where some of the other authors in this blog challenge live, and the books set in their town or state: L&SR
Until next time, peeps ~ Peg
