“Harvey’s devotion to realistic character development pays off by the end of the novel, which provides clear resolutions to some plots and leaves other hanging in a way that practically begs for a sequel…because Harvey is meticulous about closing out each character’s arc in a satisfying way….SLIGHTLY SOUTH OF SIMPLE is so warm, inviting and real…”—Bookpage
There’s nothing like a stunning vignette and a clear blue sea to make us dream of the beach.
And when we dream of the beach, what else to we dream of? Why, beach reading, of course!
We can’t believe that Slightly South of Simple is releasing tomorrow officially. It will be on the shelves at your favorite local bookstores, Barnes & Noble, Books-A-Million, Target, on Amazon and wherever books are sold.
These gorgeous images capture that perfect relaxed beach feel–the one I hope readers also get from Slightly South of Simple–perfectly.
Pink and blue is a favorite, classic color combination, one that we were so excited to see on my new book cover!
The pictures really don’t do it justice. This is one of those books we’d buy just for the cover! (Even if I didn’t happen to write it…)
This cozy beach house room is just the kind of place we’d like to spend a pretty post-spring break afternoon.
Today we’re in Kinston, NC at a fabulous home, celebrating Slightly South of Simple and raising money for the local Lenoir County SPCA.
Even though there’s nothing we’d rather be doing than supporting a cause close to our hearts, this picture is awfully tempting…
If you’re looking ahead to your own beach reading…
This is your last day to pre-order Slightly South of Simple before it releases tomorrow!
What are the chances I would have worn a hot pink dress in my author photo? Maybe I was trying to conjure a pink-and-blue book cover!

With the Slightly South of Simple book tour only weeks away, we have Georgia on the brain! SSoS is set in the fictional town of Peachtree Bluff, but this Riverside house in Georgia is completely real–and totally charming!
Packed with cozy style and adorable features, this kitchen looks like the perfect place to enjoy hot, sweet cinnamon rolls fresh from the oven with someone you love.
This exposed ceiling makes an incredible architectural feature–and creates the feeling of so much more space in a room. What a great hack for low ceilings!
Everything about this room calls for curling up by the fire and enjoying a good book. With the weather this week, that might be something we could all use a little more of!
Another incredible ceiling that totally defines this room. We love when the decor simply serves to intensify the charm of the architectural details of the house. This whole room has a casual-yet-elegant feel.
Wood paneling adds instant character–and a game table infuses a room with a feeling of fun and relaxation.
We love rooms that don’t take themselves too seriously.
Both of these bedrooms are comfortable, eclectic and totally in keeping with the tone of the house.
Natural fibers work in any home, really. But, for a river or beach house they are a necessity!
Cozy fire pits like these are where memories are made. Simply add good friends and great conversation!
