The magnolia blossoms… There are so many reasons that I love living in the South and so many reasons that I love writing about the South.

And I can’t think of anything more exciting than having a brand new book, the third book in the Peachtree Bluff Series, the sequel to Slightly South of Simple and The Secret to Southern Charm releasing May 7, 2019, called The Southern Side of Paradise!

Maybe it’s the love, family and tradition… But, to us, the South really is paradise!

And the particular paradise in my Peachtree Bluff series, my town of Beaufort, NC, is something I recently got to write about for Southbound and Atlanta magazines. And I hope you’ll come visit me in paradise on June 1, 2019, when Peachtree Bluff takes over Beaufort, NC! There will be double decker bus tours, a schmancy, gorgeous dinner, lunch with one of the best views in town… And you have a chance to win a trip! Simply send your preorder receipt to [email protected] (More details here!)

 


 

And now, the final installment of the series, THE SOUTHERN SIDE OF PARADISE, is releasing into the world May 7, and I couldn’t be more excited! One of my favorite magazines, Southern Living, did me the incredible honor of exclusively revealing the cover and a special excerpt yesterday, so make sure to go check that out! Now, without further ado, here it is, my brand new cover, maybe my favorite one yet!

What do you think?? I hope you love it as much as I do!

Thanks so much for making Design Chic a part of you day! We always love seeing you here!

Lies and Other Acts of Love Cover Reveal!

Do you believe in love at first sight? In feeling that immediate spark that makes you know this is it, that is the one. I’ve always been a big believer in love at first sight. And the cover for my latest novel, LIES AND OTHER ACTS OF LOVE is no exception. My editor sent me three options, and I just knew the second my cursor glanced over this one that this cover was just right for my book! And do you know what? She felt exactly the same way! Serendipity, I tell you. So, without further ado… My brand-new book’s photo:

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!
