THE FUN IN SHOWCASING UPSTATE NY

 

 

One of the reasons I enjoy visiting Patti’s Porch is that Patti is familiar with the Adirondack Mountains, the region I based my Surrendering Time Series on. We both enjoy the beautiful foliage, the smell of pine, and the kindness from the residents.

 

 

For me, that’s what Upstate NY is about. My goal is to use Upstate NY cities and villages in my romances so readers can fall in love with the settings and the characters. Now that I live in Ohio (where I use settings for my Surrendering Stinkin’ Thinkin’ middle grade/women’s fiction series,) I miss the rolling hills of the Finger Lakes. I long to return to the Thousand Islands and create a series. My hope is readers could learn more about Western New York beyond Rochester and Buffalo. When it comes to all those Upstate NY settings, I have my work cut out for me!

 

 

My latest release, Restoring Christmas, is a glimpse into the Finger Lakes region. Based in the fictional village of Geneseo (Jen-uh-see-oh) Valley, the romance is my tip-of-the-hat to the real Geneseo, where I graduated from college.

 

 

I loved re-creating a small town where residents rally around the local businesses. The Christmas Mansion is a holiday attraction that is beloved by the townspeople yet has tourists, too. Everyone clamors to visit the place full of decorations and props, highlighted by an appearance from Santa. Drawing from my own college experience, there are a group of college students who choose the mansion as their public relations project. They see the value in the family-owned business, even if it is in need of updating and repair.

 

 

There aren’t just college students helping out at The Christmas Mansion, there’s also a class of tweens with slight special needs who believe in the magical place in the middle of the village. With all the students lending a hand, it’s their enthusiasm that helps the new co-owner, Holly Christmas, find the treasure in the mansion that she failed to find before.

 

 

I don’t know about you, but I love reading Christmas romances. I especially love when they have small town settings. It’s my joy to offer readers both in Restoring Christmas, a holiday theme and a tribute to a rural Upstate NY village.

 

 

What about you? Do you enjoy small town romances? Do you have a favorite setting?

 

 

 

Blurb for Restoring Christmas:

Filled with grief and regret, Holly Christmas returns to Geneseo Valley and the family business, The Christmas Mansion. Can Kevin Holt restore her love for the season and the memories she left behind?

***

Holly Christmas left Geneseo Valley and her family’s holiday tourist attraction, The Christmas Mansion, as soon as she graduated.  Now both her parents have passed, and Holly returns when her uncle needs her help running the mansion. On Holly’s first day back, a blunt middle-schooler proclaims Holly hates Christmas. His comment forces her to reconcile the past while planning for the mansion’s future.

Kevin Holt is invested in offering hope to students with challenges. His best friend’s son is in Kevin’s class, and Nathan needs guidance. Their community project placement at The Christmas Mansion is an opportunity to make a positive difference. When Nathan blurts out his thoughts to the beautiful co-owner, Kevin wonders if he has what it takes to help restore the mansion to its former glory, mentor Nathan, and convince Holly Christmas she’s exactly where she needs to be.

She also shares her story in the infertility devotional, A WALK IN THE VALLEY.

Patti, Small world! My husband is from Lake Placid area and my sister lives in Long Island : ) What part of LI were you from?

Reply by: Patti Shene

Oh Wow! My mom and dad lived in the De Chantal Apartments in Saranac. My cousin lives there now. Sis and bro-in-law used to own Dun Roamin' Cabins in Schroon Lake. I grew up on the south shore of L.I. in a town called Bayport. Haven't been back on the island in over 30 years.

Cynthia From Upstate NY At 11/18/2019 4:34:26 PM

It is nice to see someone writing about the upstate NY area. We are closer to Sch'dy/Amsterdam but often visit Lake George and the Adirondack region.

Reply by: Patti Shene

Cynthia, I love to hear from people who are familiar with the Adirondacks! My dad was from the Saranac Lake area. My sister and I were raised out on Long Island, but we spent many childhood vacations up-state. My folks spent their retirement years in S.L. My sister currently lives in Schroon Lake. So glad you stopped by!

Vivian Furbay From Colorado Springs, CO At 11/18/2019 7:05:17 AM

I love small towns. Our city has grown way too big. Would enjoy reading this book.

Hi Vivian. Thank you for stopping by and joining in the discussion.

Rita From So California At 11/16/2019 6:19:12 PM

Julie, I enjoyed learning a little more about you as an author. I love small town romances! And I've definitely fallen in love with the characters, as well as, the Upstate NY cities and villages settings in your books.

Reply by: Patti Shene

Hi Rita. Thank you for stopping by and leaving a comment for Julie.

Julie Arduini From OH At 11/16/2019 3:49:50 PM

Thanks, Patti, for letting me share my love for Upstate NY settings!

Reply by: Patti Shene

Thank you for sharing with us, Julie. You know how dear that part of the state is to me as well!
