Since we are coming up on the height of summer tourist season, I thought June would be an excellent time to devote my book choices to area tourist locations. I hope you will excuse a bit of shameless self-promotion with this latest crop of books. Under “Block Island,” you will see one of the books I have written. Of all the places I have visited, Block Island remains my favorite place ever.
Philip Craig writes mysteries that take place on Martha’s Vineyard.
I have read all of Rose Connors’ books and having spent some time in Sandwich, Cape Cod, I can say that Ms. Connors describes the area perfectly, so much so that place and setting become a character itself.
The Outermost House
Being a writer myself, I have often fantasized about going away by myself, cutting myself off from everyone and spending time writing all day. It’s one reason The Outermost House resonates so deeply with me.
As I mentioned above, Block Island is my favorite place to visit. I love reading and writing about it as well.
