And it has been quite an exciting few weeks for my new little book baby, with Romantic Times naming Lies and Other Acts of Love a Top Pick, the Southern Booksellers Association choosing it as an Okra Pick (one of their top reads for the season) and our friends the SITS girls proclaiming it one of the 12 Books You Must Read in 2016!

New York Times bestselling author (and one of my all-time favorite writers!) Elin Hilderbrand said, “Lies and Other Acts of Love establishes [Harvey] as a major new voice in southern fiction. This book stirred mighty emotions in me, yet left me with a sense of peace. A truly delightful read.”

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 . . .
