Thrilled for the Christmas in Peachtree BluffTrailer

 

The fourth book in my bestselling Peachtree Bluff Series is releasing October 26 but is available NOW for preorder from your bookseller of choice! 

In the newest installment of New York Times bestselling author Kristy Woodson Harvey’s Peachtree Bluff series, three generations of the Murphy women must come together when a hurricane threatens to destroy their hometown—and the holiday season in the process.

When the Murphy women are in trouble, they always know they can turn to their mother Ansley. So when eldest daughter Caroline and her husband James announce they are divorcing—and fifteen-year-old daughter Vivi acts out in response—Caroline, at her wits end, can’t think of anything to do besides leave her with Ansley in Peachtree Bluff for the holidays. After all, how much trouble can one teenager get into on a tiny island?

Quite a lot, as it turns out.

As the “storm of the century” heads toward Peachtree Bluff, Ansley and her husband Jack, with Vivi in tow, are grateful they’re planning to leave for the trip of a lifetime. But Vivi’s recklessness forces the trio to shelter in place during the worst hurricane Peachtree has ever seen. With no power, no provisions, and the water rising, the circumstances become dire very quickly…and the Murphy sisters, who evacuated to New York, soon realize it’s up to them to conduct a rescue mission. With the bridges closed and no way to access Peachtree Bluff by land or air, they set sail on Caroline’s boat, The Starlite Sisters, determined to rebuild their beloved town—as well as their family.

In “pitch perfect tones” (Publishers Weekly) and written with her signature Southern charm, New York Times bestselling author Kristy Woodson Harvey explores the magic of Christmas, the power of forgiveness, and the importance of family in a tale that reminds us that, no matter the circumstances, home is always where we belong—especially during the holidays.

House Tour: Southern Estate Designed by James Farmer

 

We know. We know. We want to step inside this Alabama Southern Estate designed by the one and only James Farmer RIGHT NOW too!

 

 

The columns… The balcony… The trees… The setting… This is a quintessential Southern estate in every sense of the word.

 

 

And, y’all, the inside is just as dreamy as the outside. Beautiful antiques set the scene right off the bat,

 

 

And stunning textiles and accessories complement one-of-a-kind architectural details.

 

 

We miss grand dinner parties, don’t you?

 

 

This dining room is made for hosting them!

 

 

Perfect paneling and handmade brick blend with cozy furnishings to create a stylish sitting room we’d want to curl up in all winter long,

 

 

While a mix of color and texture add up to a homey yet very refined feel.

 

 

In the best designs, one room flows seamlessly into the next.

 

 

That is certainly the case in this beautiful home.

 

 

We love how every, single space feels connected.

 

 

Bright hues…

 

 

And bold patterns combine effortlessly in Farmer’s practiced hand,

 

 

Beautiful blues,

 

 

And cozy fabrics,

 

 

Combine with an enviable bath,

 

 

To add up to the perfect retreat.

 

 

We’d certainly love to be guests in this well-appointed room!

 

 

But, really, lemonade on the porch swing might be even better!

 

 

There are simply no words to convey the charm!!

 

 

This is the absolute perfect poolhouse and blends beautifully with the setting and main home around it. This is one we’re going to want to tour again and again!

(Three cheers for one of our faves, Emily Followill Photography! This is certainly a case where a picture is worth a thousand words.)

This Southern Estate reminds me so much of Dogwood, the rambling pre-revolutionary home in Under the Southern Sky! 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.)
