Brandilyn Collins is a best-selling novelist known for her trademark Seatbelt Suspense®. These harrowing crime thrillers have earned her the tagline Don't forget to b r e a t h e . . .® Brandilyn and her family divide their time between homes in the California Bay Area and northern Idaho. These beautiful gardens with water features, lush wisteria arbors that seem to go on for miles (and a hot tub that will be familiar to readers of her novels!) are at her west coast home.

And below are the lake views from Brandilyn's Idaho office, including ...yes, those are turkeys!

What a beautiful arbor! Makes me want to take a walk under it!


May I rest here in this beautiful garden? To hear the water trickle and smell the flowers makes one appreciate all of God's creation.

I love the rock walls combined with the waterfall and flowers! It is gorgeous. The walkway with the lavendar vines looks so inviting.

Brandilyn's gardens would be the perfect place to read one of her books -- you'd need the peaceful sound of the waterfall to keep you grounded with the runaway speed of her suspense! the wisteria covered walkway is fabulous! I imagine someone has a VERY sore back from carrying all those rocks. Fabulous and dreamy. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks, you wonderful folks. Yes, its a lovely backyard. In fact it's so memorable I decided to kill off somebody in the hot tub. :] (That would be the opening to Violet Dawn.)

Blessings to you all!
