Fitting, to say the least!

 

The biggest, most heartfelt thanks to everyone who attended this weekend, to all the sponsors and especially to @patriciasuggs, BHA’s indomitable director. She choreographed every detail of a truly spectacular weekend and is a total ⭐️! As is my brilliant manager @kathiecbennett who dreamed up this fabulous event. 💗

I can’t think of a better way to celebrate the culmination of my first series, one that has such a special place in my heart.

The number of you who have reached out to tell me what a special place it also has in yours means more to me than I can say.

I love hearing your stories and meeting you (shout out to my military wife readers who came yesterday to celebrate Sloane!) and am so grateful for all the support.

If you haven’t read the The Southern Side of Paradise, I would love for you to grab a copy.  It’s the Perfect Summer Read!

 

If you haven’t started the Peachtree Bluff Series yet, now is the perfect time! The first book in the series, Slightly South of Simple, has released in mass market paperback–and it’s #14 on the bestseller list! Pick it up at your favorite bookstore, local grocery store, drugstore or retail store
