“I have read Kristy’s other two books, Dear Carolina and Lies And Other Acts Of Love, and while I completely enjoyed both, [Slightly South of Simple] really hit home. I don’t know if it was the fact that it’s set at the beach ~ where I live ~ or that there were references to NY ~ where I also live ~ that it’s the story about three sisters and their widowed mom ~ hello, that’s my family ~ or the fact that I myself am the mom to girls. Or maybe it was those references to 9/11. I swear, the conversation in the book is the exact one I had with my own husband on that terrifying morning. So much of what Kristy had written felt familiar. I just couldn’t put it down. Of course, even if you don’t have the same connections that I have, you’ll still love this one. The characters are likable, the Southern setting is dreamy, there are tears, laughter, surprises, secrets and best of all, romance. The perfect summer read.” Kim, Exquisitely Unremarkable

Thanks so much to everyone who has taken the time to read my latest novel Slightly South of Simple! I am so grateful to each and every one of you.

SLIGHTLY SOUTH OF SIMPLE cuts right to the heart of what it means to be a born-and-bred Southerner, complete with the responsibilities, secrets and unique privileges that conveys. Kristy Woodson Harvey creates four women who are at once completely different yet utterly the same–and a town that you won’t ever want to leave. Interior design, family secrets, life on the coast… It’s easy to see why everyone is buzzing about SLIGHTLY SOUTH OF SIMPLE. –Bestselling author Cassandra King
“Harvey’s devotion to realistic character development pays off by the end of the novel, which provides clear resolutions to some plots and leaves other hanging in a way that practically begs for a sequel…because Harvey is meticulous about closing out each character’s arc in a satisfying way….SLIGHTLY SOUTH OF SIMPLE is so warm, inviting and real…”—Bookpage
We are so happy to have warm weather and that can only mean one thing: time for gardens galore! Sitting in them, admiring them… We love all of that! Take a look and 10 of our favorites and happy Monday, friends!
“Heartfelt and warm, SLIGHTLY SOUTH OF SIMPLE deftly explores the familial ties that bind us— and those that have the power to break us. Kristy Woodson Harvey’s cast of characters— and the charming beach town of Peachtree Bluff— will crawl into your soul and stay there.”
It’s day 22 of the Slightly South of Simple book tour, and I am so incredibly humbled and grateful to all of the people across the country who have so graciously opened their homes and shops to me – you are truly amazing!
and to all of you wonderful readers, booksellers, bloggers, reviewers and friends a big thank you for your support!
