To Love and Cherish Giveaway

Since Judy took you on a tour of Williamsburg, I thought I'd take you back to Georgia and the beautiful places we saw while researching for our Bridal Veil Island series.

Judy and I enjoyed touring Jekyll Island and all that it had to offer. It really gave us a good idea of how to style and set our fictional island.

When you read our book and come to parts about the boat house and river side of the island, this was our inspiration on Jekyll Island.

And when we write about the little "cottages" on the island where the rich and famous would escape the winter up north - this is what we were thinking.

Not exactly what I would consider a small cottage. Judy and I found them charming. It's exciting to see the historical society there refurbishing them. I hope they'll be around for a great many years to come.

Maybe one of my very favorite things was this little contraption. Judy can tell you more about it than I can. Not only that, but she tried hard to sneak this one into the car to take home.

 Can't you see her toddling around in it?

Okay, so now for the give away - if you respond to this blog, you will be entered into the contest. I'm giving away 5 copies of To Love and Cherish and they will have bookplates signed by both Judy and me. Contest ends August 4th at 11:59 p.m. and winners will be announced in next week's August 10th blog.
God Bless You!

  9. When my family lived near Savannah, Jekyll was one of the places we liked to take visiting family members. It's beautiful, and I can see how it would be very inspiring.
