Take a Tour of the REAL Romantic Locations of Break in Two

Dear Lovely Reader,

Autumn is upon us, which, for many of us, brings with it thoughts of cozy fires, mugs of tea and settling in with a good book. I hope you’ll have time to read something wonderful soon.

This past week, I received an email from a fan from the Czech Republic who was so taken with the Black Canyon Ranch in Break in Two, that she and her fella are planning a trip to Colorado next year. She was writing to find out if the ranch was a real place.

As I was answering her, it occurred to me that perhaps a few others may be interested to know that many of the places in my books are real.

So here is a list of the real places in Break in Two:

Check out Vista Verde.

The hotel restaurant in which Claire and Cole had their romantic dinner was set at The Penrose Room at the Broadmoor Resort in Colorado Springs. I even used their menu at the time for that scene, as well.

The Dive is a real burger joint in Colorado Springs. It’s mentioned in Break in Two, as well as in Don’t Let Go. There is also an actual Starbucks located where I wrote the scene where Claire has her big showdown with Antonio.

The hotel where Claire and Cole stayed when he came to London to get her is also real, except it is called The Bingham Hotel, and I called it the Bingham Inn. If you have a look at the website, you will find that the rooms are very much has I’ve described them.

All the best to you and yours,

(Except if you want to interact with me, don't try to contact me on Goodreads.com. GR scares the shit out of me so I only pop on when I have a paper bag handy to breathe into while I do whatever I have to do there as fast as humanly possible, then log the hell off before I see a nasty review of one of my babies, I mean stories.)
