I love watching the Hallmark movies mostly because of the romance, but I also love the small towns that they create. This book is part of a series about the fictional town Goose Harbor. I wrote a post asking if fictional small towns like that existed in real life. You can check that post out here.

  1. Yes, small towns do exist. My brother went to college in Iola, Kansas. The main square had one stop sign, no traffic lights. Beautiful brick buildings “downtown.” Unfortunately, the crash of 2007 killed the town, so when my brother was in school it was a pretty impoverished area. It was becoming a small-town ghost town.

    1. Welcome to my website Nicole. I’ve come across many small towns that may once have had that Hallmark feel to them, but are now barely making it. So sad. 🙁 Thanks for commenting.

  2. I think fiction small towns do exist – some where. The country is made up of so many different likes and tastes that there’s some place for every one. I personally love the small town life. Small town doesn’t mean lacking in personalities, mysteries, love or problems. They just aren’t as well known or talked about in the big town circles.

    1. Thanks for commenting Kay. I definitely agree that with a country the size of ours, there is someplace for everyone. 🙂

  3. Yes, I think they do. We lived in a small town in La. when I was around 10. Beautiful lake and friendly people. The telephone system was another story, old timey operator style. We had a party line…with a LOT of other people. It took 5 years on a waiting list to get a private line. Not much in the way of shopping or fresh produce and meat. We only stayed a year. Thank you for the giveaway opportunity.

    1. You’re welcome Perrianne and thanks for commenting. I’ve lived in a few small towns but nothing yet that made me want to stay. 🙂

  4. Yes, I think they exist! Jessica is a new-to-me author, and I would love to win a copy of this book. It sounds like a delightful read! Thanks for the chance. Happy Thanksgiving!

    1. Happy Thanksgiving to you too Evangeline! This is a good read and it is part of a series about a fictional small town in Michigan. I haven’t read the others, but this one peaked my interest about them. 🙂

  5. Yes I think they do! My uncle lived in a town that was like one I read about. Everyone knew and cared about each other.

    1. Oh I like that Merry. It’s really about the feel of community as opposed to the size of the town isn’t it? Thanks for commenting. 🙂

  6. I’ve live in small towns most of my life but they aren’t idyllic like in most books. They have their problems too.

  7. My husband grew up in a small town that didn’t even have a red light. Everyone knew everybody’s business. Reminds me of the Chapel Springs series.

  8. No Though I wish some of them did. But yes I believe some mirror other Real Small Towns.

  9. My husband grew up in a town with about 250 people. It used to have a small post office/store and a gas station up the road about 2 miles. Now all of those are gone. The population is still about the same now. It’s 15 miles either way to a town with stores, etc. So yes, small towns still exist.

    1. That is the sad thing about many of the small towns I’ve come across. They seem to have so much potential to be something out of a Hallmark movie, but without people to put some love (and money) into them, they are dying. 🙁 Thanks for commenting Winnie.

  10. I have lived in several small towns and still live in a fairly small one today. They have ranged from 700 residents to 14,000. Love knowing the folks. Thank you for the opportunity to win this book.

  11. I think fictional small towns are based on real small towns. My sister lives in a rather small town and I enjoy the feel of a small town where things are close by and Lake Michigan is only three miles down the road.

  12. I think there are some really great small towns, very similar to what is written about in many books.

  13. Yes, they definitely exist. There are many small towns in our area that have been featured in books (including Big Stone Gap).
