It’s the Fourth of July – Independence Day in the United States! Let’s celebrate with the best romance novels set in all fifty states! 

When I started tagging, I had this really stupid idea to tag by U.S. states. As with cities, I tried to limit myself to books where the state is an important part of the setting, and I’ve stopped tagging books below a B or so. This is still a ludicrous project and I’m not sure I’ll keep up with it (let me know in the comments if you have an opinion!) 

THAT BEING SAID – let’s get something fun out of my mad scheme. For the Fourth, here are DIKs set in all fifty states! I’ve tried to collect a range of genres and mix iconic DIKs which exemplify the state with surprise DIKs you may not have heard about in a while – or ever!  

And if you would like to see them all in one place on Amazon, we’ve made a special list for you! You can see it here.


How do you feel about these picks? Have a better book for your (or a favorite) state? Are there books which represent a state which I haven’t tagged? Let me know in the comments!
