Lyn Cote here-Final book in her New Friends Street series



Lyn Cote here again! Hope you're not tired of me. I was just here on Thursday. But Missy asked me if I wanted to promote my new Love Inspired, Building a Family. Silly question!

I set this series in a fictitious town near my home in the far north of Wisconsin. I also featured a charity that I admire, Habitat for Humanity. And I enjoyed highlighting what I like best about living in the northwoods.



The beautiful forests and lakes.

Take a walk in the woods.

And the food is good too in America's Dairyland.

And here's a link to a free WI cheese recipe collection.

So what do you like about where you live? And what food is associated with your hometown or state? Let's talk about our HOME!

  1. Mmmm, I love all the cheese in WI! I like the greenness of Florida, and our crystal clear river. :-) Down here, almost everyone drinks sweet tea (but not me, 'cause I'm still a yankee at heart who never developed a taste for it) lol

  2. Lyn, I love those photos!! What a gorgeous fall you must be having.

    I'm in Georgia. And we love our peaches and peanuts! :)

    Jessica, I've been tubing in a couple of those ice cold, beautifully clear rivers! We love it!

  3. I love FL too. Used to spend time with my parents in New Port Richey on the Gulf. They're gone now. Miss it. And I've drunk sweet tea too, but switched to Sweet 'n Low!

  4. I've never been to WI, but it's on my list of places to go and I have relatives there.

    I'm in Arizona, we love our salsa and Indian fry bread.

  5. AZ was where my dh and I honeymooned. That's where I introduced him to Mexican food.

  6. Hi Lyn! I'm sharing your north country splendor one state to the east here in Michigan. I love the Great Lakes, the endless blue, and the change of seasons. Well, at least three of the seasons. Winter lasts far too long, in my opinion. Michigan is known for cherries, blueberries, apples, and wineries (which are springing up along the Lake Michigan shoreline). It's apple season now, and my trees have an abundant harvest.

    Congratulations on your new book!

  7. Love these photos, Lyn--thanks for sharing! I've always wanted to visit Wisconsin and have heard it's a lovely state. ~ I'm a lifelong Georgia girl and LOVE my southern state! Although I'll admit I do grumble about our heat and humidity in July/August, the good far outweighs the bad. We have beautiful Autumn and Spring seasons, and get thrilled when we actually have snow in the Winter! (well, some of us are thrilled...not everyone,LOL). As Missy said, we are known for our peaches and peanuts, and I'm a big fan of traditional southern favorites such as fried okra and grits--YUM! ;) Blessings, Patti Jo

  8. Lyn, I was born and raised in South Louisiana and we do love our regional foods - boiled seafood, gumbo, jambalya, red beans and sausage, courtbullions - mmmm, getting hungry just thinking about it.

    Southern Ontario has a greenbelt known for it's wine, produce, and dairy. :)

  12. Can't add anything ...food wise...to what Missy and Patti Jo said. However, will say we are finally having some cooler days in GA.

  13. Lyn, I'm in WI too! However, I'm in SE Wisconsin. The cheese here is wonderful and I do love milk. I'm a true dairy state girl!

    The tomboy in me has to mention our Super Bowl winning Green Bay Packers and our National League Central Division Champion Milwaukee Brewers!! :o)

    I love that where I live, I have a taste of the country (I live in a one stoplight town-and we just got that about 5 years ago!) but close enough to major stores to not be a problem.
