      • Leni, you bet fudge is mentioned. Hello? We are talking Mackinac Island…Fudgies included. Ha. And surely there are fewer calories reading about fudge than eating it, but you can just about smell it floating off the pages.

    • Yeah. Time travel on Mackinac Island. Who would have thought of such a thing? There’s nothing new under the sun…except…writers twisting and turning plots and characters. Thanks for your support, Erin.

  1. Love love love Mackinac Island. My daughter and hubby go every year for their anniversary. My grandson is an avid reader and he would enjoy this time travel story on the island, I’m sure. I’m sure you had to do a lot of research for the book and HAD to travel the the island for it. Rough, isn’t it, being a writer??? Best wishes on your new release!

    • One of the favorite islands in the world! When I was there two years ago finishing up some research – the story was written years ago – the chain fell off my bike, about the farthest distance from where I had rented it. I got to see the island step by step that time. Fun.

  2. Congratulations to the book giveaway winners! Thanks for participating. I wish I could have just mailed off a copy of the book to everyone who commented.
    JQ Rose won the copy from this wordpress blog, and Doris Holik Kelly won the copy from the book’s FaceBook page.
    YAY!!! (You can check out the other winners on GoodReads.)
