​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, NYT bestselling author of The Book of Lost Names).

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, Cape Carolina. 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.

In Good Taste: House of Jade

What is it that defines good taste?

 

House of Jade living room with stone fireplace

 

Is it the beauty in simplicity?

 

House of Jade 4 chairs in circle

 

The style in symmetry?

The inherent chicness of soothing spaces?

Or extracting the beauty in what has, perhaps, been there all along?

For House of Jade Interiors, good taste is a combination of all those things–

Plus a special, unidentifiable spark all their own.

It’s the perfect finishing touch that leaves a lasting impression,

The creation of unforgettable vignettes,

And a sense of time and place that add up to that undeniable feeling of home. We think the work of House of Jade is always in good taste. What about you?

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.

More About Feels Like Falling…

From “the next major voice in Southern fiction” (Elin Hilderbrand) and the bestselling author of the Peachtree Bluff series comes an odd couple tale of friendship that asks just how much our past choices define our happiness. 

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 evangelical 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 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 busted 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 the one that got away comes back, 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, wittiest, and 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.

In Good Taste: Jenny Keenan Design

Jenny Keenan Design blue and white living room

 

When it comes to great designers, one of the hallmarks of the very best is something that can be so hard to achieve: range. 

 

Jenny Keenan Design blue and white living room

 

Jenny Keenan is one of those rare designers that has it in droves, and is capable of creating spaces that meet any client’s needs. From classic and gorgeous in blue and white,

 

Jenny Keenan Design blue and white living room

 

To that fabulous, always-in-style, British Colonial vibe,

 

Jenny Keenan Design kitchen

 

Bright and airy kitchens with touches of antique charm,

 

Jenny Keenan Design blue and white kitchen

 

To streamlined spaces with bright pops of color.

 

Jenny Keenan Design white shiplap kitchen

 

We love how she adds eye-catching modern touches into this classic, beachy space,

 

Jenny Keenan Design dining room with shiplap ceiling

 

For a fresh look that transforms a home for a new season.

 

Jenny Keenan Design dining room

 

Color and whimsy always catch our eye,

 

Jenny Keenan Design bunkbed

 

And a stunning, special bunk room for kids and adults alike only expands the fun.

 

Jenny Keenan Design built in bunkbeds

 

Beautiful in black and white,

Is always chic and cool,

While color pops create that instant bright, summer feeling, no matter the season.

But, we have to say, we might love summertime outdoor living best of all… What about you? With taste, range and spectacular style, we think Jenny Keenan ‘s designs are always in good taste!
