There’s something special about reading a book set in a location you are familiar with, especially when that setting holds fond memories or is much loved.
When an author weaves in authentic details about a location, especially local traditions, culture, and history, the setting becomes another character in the story.
For me, Wisconsin is such a place. What makes The Badger State special for me is its expansive shoreline, quaint small towns proud of their history, creative and beautiful artisan crafts, and a strong sense of community no matter where you live in the state.
Here are five Wisconsin authors whose books showcase what I love about our state.
Kate Bowman – For the Love of Fiber Series, which includes The Spin I’m in and It Never Felt so Good
Virginia McCullough – Author of The Jacks of Her Heart, Greta’s Grace, The Chapels on the Hill, and other award-winning women’s fiction and romance.
Nancy Sweetland – The Door to Love: A Door County Romance
Valerie J. Clarizio – Love on the Door County Peninsula Series, which includes Talia & Ryan’s Story and Jess & Sam’s Story.
Mary Grace Murphy – Noshes Up North Culinary Mystery Series, which includes Death Nell, Death Knock, and Death Nosh.
You can also enjoy my women’s fiction romance, inspired by the joys of living in Wisconsin.
