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!

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…

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!

House Tour: Sea Island

Sea Island Cottage

Good morning, friends! Welcome to Sea Island, Georgia! We are most excited to share this stunning home with you and to announce that my new novel, Slightly South of Simple, is coming out April 25, 2017! If you’re wondering how these two things are related it’s because Slightly South of Simple is the first in a series set in the fictional, seaside town of Peachtree Bluff, Georgia, which is very (fictionally) close and geographically similar to Sea Island!

More about LIES:

Dear Carolina was praised as “Southern fiction at its best.”* Now author Kristy Woodson Harvey presents a new novel about what it really means to tell the truth . . .

After sixty years of marriage and five daughters, Lynn “Lovey” White knows that all of us, from time to time, need to use our little white lies.

Her granddaughter, Annabelle, on the other hand, is as truthful as they come. She always does the right thing—that is, until she dumps her hedge fund manager fiancé and marries a musician she has known for three days. After all, her grandparents, who fell in love at first sight, have shared a lifetime of happiness, even through her grandfather’s declining health.

But when Annabelle’s world starts to collapse around her, she discovers that nothing about her picture-perfect family is as it seems. And Lovey has to decide whether one more lie will make or break the ones she loves . . .

 “LIES AND OTHER ACTS OF LOVE will grab you by the heart strings and pull hard. A perfect story about the lies we tell and the secrets we keep– all in the name of love.” – Liz Fenton and Lisa Steinke, authors of The Status of All Things and Your Perfect Life 

“LIES AND OTHER ACTS OF LOVE by Kristy Woodson Harvey is a richly detailed, intergenerational tale of love, loss and loyalty. Harvey pulls the reader into the hearts and souls of her characters.” — Heather Gudenkauf ~ New York Times bestselling author of The Weight of Silence

And, of course, if you’re looking to pass the time until LIES AND OTHER ACTS OF LOVE releases, pick up a copy of DEAR CAROLINA!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! We’ll be back to our regularly scheduled design loveliness tomorrow!
