WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT
SLIGHTLY SOUTH OF SIMPLE:

“These four women are not only towers of strength, they love their family, which is proven in many ways and many times throughout the book.  Kristy, you have written a masterpiece again. I am so proud of you! I can’t think of a book that I had rather recommend, and I can’t wait for the next one!”

Teresa, Splendid Sass
