Research for The Crystal Ballroom, Michigan Islands

I set The Crystal Ballroom, my next series, on a fictional Island in the middle of Lake Michigan. At first, I thought will anyone believe there is an island in the middle of Lake Michigan and then I slapped myself upside the head and said “Of course they will. Mackinac Island is already a famous tourist attraction.” Granted it isn’t in Lake Michigan, but it is in the Great Lakes. It was early. What can I say?

So just for fun, I googled Islands in Michigan and was amazed at the large number of islands. Me thinks this summer would be a great time to go Michigan Island hopping.

Anyway here are some links: Video Tour of Mackinac IslandIslands of Michigan,  Drummond Island

The Fox Islands might be a great place to bury a fictional body in a future book.
