I am over-the-moon about my first starred review from Publishers Weekly! Can’t wait for all of you to read Under the Southern Sky on April 20! It’s available for preorder now wherever books are sold. 

From PW: Harvey (Feels Like Falling) delivers a heart-wrenching tale of love and loss in this tearjerker…Harvey brings her characters to life, including Greer, whose heartbreaking journal entries reflect on scans of the embryos and imagine the family she and Parker would have. These passages are particularly wrenching, making the book’s happy ending all the more moving. Fans of women’s fiction will devour this. (Apr.)

House Tour: A Second Act for Empty Nesters

 Margaret Kirkland Interiors curb appeal entry for empty nesters

 

We can all use a good second chance every now and then.

 

Margaret Kirkland Interiors entry for empty nesters

 

From furniture to houses, accessories to, yes, people, reinvention is one of the best gifts we can give ourselves. 

 

Margaret Kirkland Interiors living room.for empty nesters

 

And, sometimes, when life changes, in order to move forward, we could all use a second act. 

 

Margaret Kirkland Interiors living room.for empty nesters

 

That’s exactly what this stunning home became for a pair of empty nesters.

And what a stylish second act it is!

Perfectly appointed for a pair–or a party–

And all decked out for the holidays,

MORE ABOUT FEELS LIKE FALLING:

It’s summertime on the North Carolina coast and the livin’ is easy. Unless, that is, you’ve just lost your mother to cancer, your sister to her extremist husband, and your husband to his executive assistant. Meet Gray Howard. Right when Gray could use a serious infusion of good karma in her life, she inadvertently gets a stranger, Diana Harrington, fired from her job at the local pharmacy. Diana Harrington’s summer isn’t off to the greatest start either: Hours before losing her job, she broke up with her boyfriend and moved out of their shared house with only a worn-out Impala for a bed. Lucky for her, Gray has an empty guest house and a very guilty conscience. With Gray’s kindness, Diana’s tide begins to turn. But when her first love returns, every secret from her past seems to resurface all at once. And, as Gray begins to blaze a new trail, she discovers, with Diana’s help, that what she envisioned as her perfect life may not be what she wants at all. In her warmest, wisest novel yet, Kristy Woodson Harvey delivers a discerning portrait of modern womanhood through two vastly different lenses. Feels Like Falling is a beach bag essential for Harvey fans—and for a new generation of readers.

With calm colors and soothing style, it’s like a spa-day on your computer or phone screen.

And don’t forget to scroll to the end because the exterior is just as fabulous as the interior!

We are loving chic centerpieces like this for tabletop style that lasts long after the holiday season–

The heart of this home is fabulous in every way–

And even has the perfect eat-in spot for bright morning breakfasts. (Maybe on Christmas Day?!)

Our favorite color accents are always the fresh ones. (And our favorite dinner companions are often the furry ones!)

Speaking of relaxation… There’s nothing we love more than a good, long bath in a gorgeous tub like this!

Pure poolhouse charm–and it’s functional too!

Especially during these days of dining outdoors, this space is entertaining perfection.

We’re huge fans of the gorgeous interior of this home, but, wow! It keeps getting even better outside!

Under the Southern Sky

 

I am so excited to announce my seventh novel, UNDER THE SOUTHERN SKY, which releases April 20, 2021. The official cover reveal is coming September 23! 

 

MORE ABOUT UNDER THE SOUTHERN SKY:

Two childhood friends discover that love—and family—can be found in unconventional ways in this timely, moving novel from the USA TODAY bestselling author of the “beautifully Southern, evocative Peachtree Bluff series” (Kristin Harmel, internationally bestselling author of The Winemaker’s Wife).

Recently separated Amelia Buxton, a dedicated journalist, never expected that uncovering the biggest story of her career would become deeply personal. But when she discovers that a cluster of embryos belonging to her childhood friend Parker and his late wife Greer have been deemed “abandoned,” she’s put in the unenviable position of telling Parker—and dredging up old wounds in the process.

Parker has been unable to move forward since the loss of his beloved wife three years ago. He has all but forgotten about the frozen embryos, but once Amelia reveals her discovery, he knows that if he ever wants to get a part of Greer back, he’ll need to accept his fate as a single father and find a surrogate.

Each dealing with their own private griefs, Parker and Amelia slowly begin to find solace in one another as they navigate an uncertain future against the backdrop of the pristine waters of their childhood home, Buxton Beach. The journey of self-discovery leads them to an unforgettable and life-changing lesson: Family—the one you’re born into and the one you choose—is always closer than you think.

From “the next major voice in Southern fiction” (Elin Hilderbrand, #1 New York Times bestselling author), Under the Southern Sky is a fresh and unforgettable exploration of love, friendship, and the unbreakable ties that bind.
