It's fun to see the diversity!

PamelaTracy said...

I think we need to do something about the states that are not mentioned. Maybe each of us take one and find out something romantic about it.
BTW, Jen and all, Noami Rawlings is putting together the list of non-usa set LI books. You'll see that soon.

Tracy S said...

Wisconsin just isn't very romantic apparently--it's unusual for me to find books that take place in my state! :o)

I agree with Missy though, it was fun to see the diversity!

Christine Johnson said...

Tracy S - I understand Lyn Cote's 2012 release is set in Wisconsin. Lyn, correct me if I'm wrong!

Pamela - What a fun idea! I'll take Florida, since it's my second home. What's more romantic than sunsets? Florida has some gorgeous ones with the palm trees silhouetted by the tangerine glow. A walk on the beach, the warm evening air...sigh.

PamelaTracy said...

Yikes, in ABC order I have Lyn's book one state off. I need to go look!

PamelaTracy said...

You get a gold star! I just fixed it on the blog. Lyn has a Wisconsin. Poor West Virginia just lost its representative.

Ausjenny said...

Oh need to keep this post. I am reading a book in every state again. wow 3 in Mississippi. that was my hardest state last year.
Lyn Cote had 3 books in Wisconsin that I read last year.
I was struggling with West Virginia too for awhile last year. Oh cool about the non US books. I just read Linda Fords A Cowboy Tutor its set in Alberta Canada. (now in Oklahoma)

Valri said...

I live in Oregon so I hope someone pays attention to that state! I know Terri Reed lives there and I have seen books set in that state from time to time! It's a great state - REALLY! I happen to love it here. I've lived in 6 different states and several different countries but Oregon happens to be my favorite :)

Rhonda Gibson said...

My May LIH release is set in New Mexico :)

Leann said...

Yeah, Ronda, we're in the same state. What year is your story set?

PamelaTracy said...

Did you email me that info when I put the shout out?

Tracy S said...

Yay! I have read some books by Lyn Cote years ago that were in WI. I do find books from WI occasionally, just not often! ;o)

I'll have to check out the book coming out in 2012.

Terri Reed said...

Valri, I plan to set a book back in Oregon soon. I have two more books scheduled to write before I can plot a new one. By the way Melissa McClone, Silhouette author, has a series set in a fictional town near Mt. Hood. You might check her out.
