Where are most of my beach romance stories set?

Georgia, Georgia…

Do you know where Georgia (a USA state) is? I know we have international readers here, so here’s a map of the continental USA. If you have been to Georgia or live in the state, you would know that five hours of driving east from the state capital of Atlanta, you’d reach the Georgia coastline, with beaches stretching from Tybee Island in the north, St. Simon’s and Jekyll Islands in the middle, and Cumberland Island to the south. Keep driving south, and you’d be in Florida.

Most of my stories are set in metropolitan Atlanta, Savannah, Tybee Island, and St. Simon’s Island. Savannah Sweethearts is set in Savannah and on Tybee, so below are the books in the series, if you haven’t read them.

Every now and then, I invent fictitious towns and islands. For example, Seaside Island is the namesake of my Seaside Chapel series. In Pray for Me (Vacation Sweethearts Book 5), I mention a mountain town named Lakeside. A whole series set there is coming soon as well.


Savannah Sweethearts

Welcome to the new south! From USA Today bestselling author Jan Thompson come these clean and wholesome, sweet and inspirational Christian beach romances set in the coastal city of Savannah, Georgia, and on the warm beaches of Tybee Island by the Atlantic Ocean. Meet a group of multiracial and multiethnic churchgoing Christians who love the Lord, work hard in their careers, and seek God’s will for their love lives. Against a backdrop of sand, sea, and sun, these stories showcase aspects of the human need for God and for one another. Have some tea, settle in a comfortable reading chair, and enjoy these sweet celebrations of faith, hope, and love in Jesus Christ.

Seaside Chapel

Welcome to St. Simon’s Island, Georgia—a beach town where history is all around and the future is a moment away—and the neighboring fictitious Seaside Island, where the rich and famous live. Savor the small-town atmosphere and the warm southern beaches of St. Simon’s Island and the idyllic Golden Isles along the Atlantic Ocean. Enjoy the music of the orchestra and hymns of the church, and hang out with our Christian friends who attend Seaside Chapel, a little church by the sea known for its beach weddings and fair share of love and life.

As these Christians grow in their knowledge and understanding of God, they are tested in their spiritual maturity, their relationships with others, and their love lives. Share their heartaches and healing, and cheer them on as they celebrate faith, family, and friends.
