Happy Book Birthday HEARTACHE MOTEL!

HEARTACHE MOTEL brings three amateur sleuths -- Rose Strickland, Cherry Tucker, and Nichelle Clarke -- to Graceland at Christmas with three separate capers at the skeeziest dive motel east of the Mississippi.

"If you’re a fan of cozy mysteries, you’ll want to read Heartache Motel. Fans of Austin, Reinhart, and Walker won't be disappointed and this is a great way to dip your toes if you’re interested in reading a new author or genre. Just keep in mind, I'm not responsible if you find yourself swiveling your hips and attempting to impersonate Elvis afterwards." -- Literary Etc.
Actual cake by UK's Biscuiteers from their Bespoke collection

Hijack in Abstract blog tour

Take a spin with Cherry Tucker.  Win a gift card and check out interviews, reviews, and excerpts on the Chick Lit Plus blog tour!

Hijack in Abstract by Larissa Reinhart

Cherry Tucker’s love life has shifted into neutral. And her siblings, Grandpa, and sort-of-ex-husband have flipped her personal life to greasy side up. But life in Halo, Georgia, isn’t all bad for the sassy, Southern artist. Her career has pushed into full throttle. A classical series sold. A portrait commissioned. Then Uncle Will, Forks County Sheriff, calls in a favor to have Cherry draw a composite sketch of a hijacker. Suddenly, life takes a hairpin when the composite leads to a related murder, her local card sharking buddy Max Avtaikin becomes bear bait, and her Amazonian nemesis labels the classical series “pervert art,” causing Cherry to be shunned by the town. 

Cherry’s jamming gears between trailer parks, Atlanta mansions, and trucker bars searching for the hijacker who left a widow and orphan destitute and Max Avtaikin in legal jeopardy. While she seeks to help the misfortunate and save her local reputation, Cherry’s hammer down attitude has her facing the headlights of an oncoming killer, ready to grind her gears for good.

Exploring Grantville, GA: The Walking Dead and Cherry Tucker

The small, rural town of Halo of Forks County, Georgia, is the fictional hometown of Cherry Tucker and friends in the Cherry Tucker Mystery Series. When I'm attending local events, I'm often asked if Halo is based on a particular town in Georgia. I grew up in and around small towns, and truly Halo is an amalgamation of Southern and Midwestern towns (and even a small Japanese town I once lived in). I've thrown in shops both real and imaginary. The residents are fictionalized versions of personalties I've encountered.
Senoia's tracks I used for a scene in Hijack in Abstract
I live near Senoia, a quaint Georgian town used as a location set for many movies and TV shows (most famously, Fried Green Tomatoes and The Walking Dead) and recently home to Zac Brown's Southern Ground Social Club. Senoia was also a whistlestop with the early twentieth century bungalows and late Victorian houses you find in Halo. Since the production companies have moved in, Senoia has gentrified with a darling downtown with shops, restaurants, and Southern Living Idea Houses (and on certain weeks zombies and camera crews). However, Halo is on the cusp of renewal and lacks the funding of movie studios to pretty it up.

A Walking Dead barricade in Senoia
Downtown Grantville.
Imagine this building as the Tru-Buy grocery store
or Halo Herald
Which brings me to Grantville, another Walking Dead location town. Another whistlestop with turn of the century houses and buildings. Like Halo, Grantville has seen better days. I am friendly with the mayor, Jim Sells, and know he is hard at work to bring businesses and funding to Grantville, to revive its economy. Grantville is Halo in many ways (minus the town square and local businesses) and the moment I drove off the interstate and into the town, I knew in my heart this was Cherry Tucker's world.

Grantville's tracks









Examples of traditional, early twentieth century homes found in small depot towns like Grantville. Or Halo. 

Cherry's bungalow?

Although this is more what I imagined.

Mr. Johnson's (Cherry's neighbor) house.

Or this.

Picture yourself in Cherry's Datsun.

What do you think of when you imagine fictional small towns? Are these examples different than how you pictured Halo? Any Grantville or Senoia fans out there?
