My favorite "hometown in a book" experience was finding references to my home town in a college history textbook. Now I know that the open fields that were all around the town when I was a kid in the 1970's were the remnants of the farms owned by textile mill owners in earlier days.

My favorite bookstore has shown up in a couple of places. The owner and staff have been "murdered" in several novels written by acquaintances.

I might like a book set in Minneapolis (if it was a genre I liked), but if it read like someone didn't know the city, it would be like driving a car down a street filled with potholes.

Have you tried Anthony Bidulka's mystery series featuring P. I. Russell Quant set in Saskatoon -- quite a change from Toronto-based books!

Thanks for the tip, but I doubt I'd find much that I'd recognize in a book set in Saskatoon since I only visited there once briefly and that was many years ago.

My wife enjoys recognizing familiar places in books by another Toronto writer, Robert Rotenberg, author of the Detective Greene series among others but I haven't had a chance to read him yet.
