Welcome To Bramblett County, Georgia!

Hey y’all! My name is Lily Sprayberry. Some of you might know me, and you might know me as Lilybit. I prefer Lily, but you can call me Lilybit if you want. Most everyone here in Bramblett County does.

I hear you’re interested in buying a house here in Bramblett County. Let me just say, you’ve come to the right place, and you’re going to love it here! The northern part of Georgia is just beautiful, especially in the fall. The changing colors of the Blue Ridge Mountains is pretty than a rainbow. Really, you have to see it to believe it.

We do get some snow, but mostly if we’re trapped inside, it’s because of ice, and when that happens, we just sit back and make French toast. I say that because the stores run out of milk, bread and eggs, and that’s the recipe for French toast, right? Of course, come the following fall and the hospitals are filled up with new mommas delivering babies, so French toast isn’t the only thing we’re making during the Bramblett County winters!

My momma would wash my mouth out with soap for saying that, but it’s true.

I own the biggest real estate agency in the county along with my life-long friend, Belle Pyott. When I say biggest, I mean that in the loosest sense of the word because there really aren’t any other real estate agencies in town. Okay, there’s one or two, but they don’t really do much business, so we’re the biggest by default. Having grown up in the county makes it easy for us to get business from the locals, but we work hard to market our agency to the growing number of people coming from the Atlanta area, even though our residents aren’t thrilled about what they like to call the invasion of the city people.

Sometimes, I can’t help but agree with them.

Bramblett County is a special place, and when people come here, they don’t want to leave. We celebrate the holidays like we invented them, with Santa living right here in town, and have the greatest fall festival ever, and if you think your momma makes the best apple pie ever, well you just haven’t tried Millie’s pie yet, and honestly, you’re missing out.

So, why don’t you tell me a little about yourself? It’ll help me choose a few of the available properties to show you. We’ve got some great new builders in town, from townhomes to condos to some fancy new lofts—though, between us, the townspeople aren’t too thrilled with those. Either way, many of the older homes are on the market, also. People aren’t moving away from town, they’re building new homes on their land.

While you’re telling me about yourself, I’ll go ahead and order you a sweet tea and a raspberry scone from Millie. Trust me, you’re going to love them. Her secret recipe is to die for.

Oh, I better not say that. Unfortunately, I’ve had a few too many deaths linked to my real estate business lately.

But don’t you worry about that. I’m sure it’s not a thing or anything.

I hope.

  1. Hi,
    Enjoying your GA books…. I’m from Augusta and our son lives in Dunwoody, GA. In addition to your books (real books) being “fun” to read (everyone needs a “cozy murder” to relax !! )… it’s so entertaining to know the area towns, shopping and little crossroads in the middle of nowhere !! To say nothing of your characters (many are in my family). I now live in Weaverville, NC , a short few miles north of Asheville, NC.
    Now to my question(s)… I have your Lily Sprayberry books – however, I cannot find a way to order the books: The Scarecrow Snuff Out &
    Sleigh Bells and Sleuthing. I only order books – love the book form, touch & smell of books – and curling up with a cup of tea, comfy blanket when it’s not GA 100 degrees. Reading & collecting for a lot of years (even though I’m the proverbial 29 yrs. ok maybe 39 !! ) Thank you for your time, looking forward to your answer.

    1. Hi Barbara!
      I’ve been to Augusta to watch golf…you know, at that little game played there? 🙂
      Unfortunately The Scarecrow Snuff Out and Sleigh Bells & Sleuthing aren’t in paperback. Since they’re shorter stories called novellas, they’re a little too small to have printed. I may have them added to the backs of my other paper backs eventually though. But I know what you mean, I love a book better than anything. Except with my eyes and middle age, I either need the bigger print or a stronger pair of glasses.
