Virtual Tour: February 15, 2007

With the release of Deadly Advice only weeks away, I thought you might enjoy a virtual tour of the setting for the book: Guilford CT. The main character, Dr. Rebecca Butterman, lives in a fictional condo community near the real Guilford Harbor.

Town of Guilford, CT.

If you stood on the boat launch and looked over the harbor, you would see the little red shack that’s pictured on my website header. This is where Rebecca goes to drink her morning coffee and think about problems–whether they have to do with murder…or men! The town itself is quintessential New England–a green flanked by churches, the library, and lovely small shops and restaurants.

And here is the real West Side Cemetery,
where one of the final scenes takes place.

Last but not least, Rebecca agrees to house her neighbor’s
cat early on in the book. Here’s my neighbor cat, Yoda, who sometimes visits me, and graciously agreed to serve as a model for Rebecca’s friend, Spencer.
