When Real Life Inspires Fictional Settings

Art credit: Renee Gauvin
Sometimes a story's setting is inspired by real places, sometimes it's a compilation of several different locales. When I saw this lighthouse painting done by Renee Gauvin earlier in the week, it was exactly how I envisioned Clearwater Lighthouse in LOVE LIKE WATER. It's a painting of Split Rock Lighthouse near Grand Marais, MN. I've driven by it, but I've never seen it from this angle. Isn't it gorgeous?

NEW RELEASE: LOVE LIKE WATER

LOVE LIKE WATER
 (Hearts in Hendricks Book 1)

A CLEAN CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE 

     After losing her job, Darcy Conti takes a tour guide position at Sturgeon Widows Tours, a quirky family-run business in the small town of Hendricks on the shores of Lake Superior. As she settles into her new role narrating local history excursions, she fights an undeniable attraction to the man she was hired to replace—the owner’s son. 
     Fresh from a relationship gone sour, Sean Stetman plans to avoid dating for the foreseeable future. Taking a leave of absence from his parents’ tour company, he wants nothing more than time to fish, hike, and work on his cabin. But when the tour driver quits, he is suddenly back on board, reluctantly shuttling Darcy and the tour guests along the North Shore.
     Together Darcy and Sean survive unruly tourists, meddling mothers, and even an unscrupulous developer looking to give the Stetmans’ tour company some fierce competition. Can they also survive falling in love?
