Happy Tuesday! For today’s Top Ten Tuesday ‘book setting’ prompt, I decided to look at a bunch of series that are set in Georgia… and a handful of standalone titles I’ve enjoyed that are set here too. And by ‘bunch’, I mean ‘however many I can think of’ – sticking to ten is a distant suggestion lol.
I’ve long loved the state of Georgia – in fact, I have deep roots here, even though I’ve only lived here for three years. My great-great grandfather I. R. Booth was a circuit riding preacher from South Carolina who started several churches in southeastern Georgia in the mid 1840s, finally settling there to pastor one of those churches in the town of Manor. That church was originally named the Philadelphia Methodist Episcopal Church South but has changed names several times over the years before it became Victory Methodist Church, the name it still uses today where it sits on Booth Church Road – 177 years later. I.R. Booth had a whopping 20 children so there are a LOT of people in southeastern Georgia with my maiden name lol.
Anyway, enough about me. On to the series that are set in Georgia! The locations represented here range from the mountains to the city of Atlanta to the southern coast – and the small towns in between. They also represent a variety of genres – contemporary romance, historical romance, cozy mystery, romantic suspense, and women’s fiction.
