Overview

Fancy Ford is a little darling in pig tails, but the grandson of the lady next door thinks she's a spoiled brat. Every year her parents spend the summer at the family cottage in Charlevoix, Michigan. The story begins in 1991 as Fancy waits on the dock for her Uncle to come sailing through the Pine River Channel. What she can't know is her life is about to change forever more. Fancy's Uncle Ted soon discovers there are only three things that make her laugh: playing pool, karaoke, and parties. He uses this knowledge to help her when she tells him she hates school and never wants to return. This Northern Michigan travel fiction is the first book in the Love Boxes Trilogy. It is a sweet old-fashioned love story––a trip down memory lane––as well as a mystery. It's historically based with fifty photos included.

Meet the Author

eBooks by G. G. Galt are available through Apple Books, iTunes, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, Diesel, and other major online retailers, as well "Brick & Mortar" Bookstores. ABOUT THE AUTHOR G. G. Galt's stories are fictional adventures happening in factual locations––ones that didn't happen, but could have. Her illustrated romantic fantasies often take place on the shores of Little Traverse Bay and Lake Charlevoix in Northern Michigan. Others happen in the Northwest and the Northeast where she's been known to ride the rails coast-to-coast rather than fly. The stories originate from Galt's love of genealogy, history, music, art, antiques, and old house restoration. She also draws from memories of growing up in Northern Michigan and spending summer vacations at the family cottage. For updates, to say hello, or comment, visit the author’s blog at: http://gigigalt.com. She loves to hear from her readers and replies whenever possible. The author's most recent publications are as follows: (A) The Love Box Series–– Love Boxes: A Love Story from Northern Michigan to Points Beyond, Love Boxes 2: The Vacation, Love Boxes 3: The Twilight Zone, and Love Boxes 4: The Bay View Cottage. (B) The Paradise Series––Paradise: A Love Story from Petoskey to Harbor Springs, Paradise 2: A Love Story from Cross Village to Harbor Springs, Paradise 3: A Love Story from Harbor Springs to Sausalito. Paradise 4: A Love Story from Cross Village to Mackinac Island. Forthcoming Spring 2014: Paradise 5: A Love Story from Mackinac Island to Points Beyond. and, Paradise 6: Paradise 6: A Love Story from the Saint Lawrence Seaway to Mackinac Island. Each of the ten books in the two series is complete, but the author prefers readers take them one at a time for the sake of continuity.

Truly a refreshing and heart warming tale set in my favorite vacation spot. Lake Charlevoix. Whether I was familiar with the area or not, I would have been charmed by the story. I couldn’t stop reading it. When I did, I walked a little lighter. Great family read.

This is not only wonderful travel fiction, but an amazing book. I have never read an e-book quite like this, or seen so many beautiful photos. It's hard to believe it is free. The photos take me right along with Fancy to all the places she travels in Northern Michigan. The story was for me, as the author hoped, "a trip down memory lane." I am not finished with it yet, but I pick up my i-phone and read it every chance I get. At home, I read it on my lap top in PDF, it looks great. I wrote the author and found out Book 2 and 3 of this Trilogy will be on i-Pad shortly and has been approved for their catalogue. (I'm hoping I'll have my new i-Pad by Mother's Day and can read the others on it.) Many thanks to the author and the publisher. I plan to share the book with my homeschooling friends.

This story jumps around so much that it rs hard to folow. The storyline is good and the style of writing is easy to read. Just confusing at times.

The book has nice photos, but that's about it.

This is a fascinating and delightful story about my favorite area of the country: Northern Michigan. I plan to read it to my family before we leave on our summer vacation to Lake Charlevoix. Looking forward to the second book in the trilogy. I love the characters, especially Uncle Ted and his niece Fancy.

Not really a true crime mystery but it has the flavor of and reads like one. Relatively short. First person narrative. It was interesting, very light reading. Lots of pictures, which is unusual for adult fiction. My parents moved us to Flint Michagan when I was a child, it is beautiful country. I enjoyed the memories this book brought back. AD

This book seems so great. Since I was little I would always go to Charlevoix, Michigan for part of my summer. I just can't wait to read it now!
