      fabulous cover for The Wedding Veil by Kristy Woodson Harvey

There is a LOT going on over here at Kristy Woodson Harvey World Headquarters! (i.e. me at my dining room table.) You might have heard that the 4th book in the Peachtree Bluff Series, Christmas in Peachtree Bluff, releases on October 26. But today I’m so thrilled to reveal the GORGEOUS cover for my March 29, 2022 release, The Wedding Veil! My first historical/contemporary novel–and my first hardcover–this is a true book of my heart, and deep diving into the world of Edith and Cornelia Vanderbilt, the first mistress and daughter of Biltmore Estate, kept me occupied during those first, dark days of shut down. She’s a beauty, isn’t she? Do you recognize the house in the background? If not, it’s Biltmore Estate! And the bride on the cover? Well… You’ll just have to read to find out about her!

 

Are you a big fan of preorders? I know I am! As an author, preorders help me make bestseller lists (Hello, New York Times, USA Today and Publisher’s Weekly!) and I am so grateful for every one! As a reader, I love knowing that I’m reading my favorite authors’ books when they are HOT off the presses! You know I like to give a little gift to my sweet friends who preorder so…

  1. Preorder from your retailer of choice.
  2. Fill out this form.
  3. Receive your The Wedding Veil signature rose bud tea, signed book plate and an exclusive bookmark! I only have 600, so these will go quickly!

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, 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.

Dogwood

Under the Southern Sky Inspiration House Tour: Parker’s Family Home

Photos by: Jeff Herr Photography

 

 

Good morning, chic readers! If you’ve been around this week, so many thank yous for helping me celebrate the release of my seventh novel, Under the Southern Sky!

 

 

If you haven’t been here, you’re definitely going to want to check out yesterday’s house tour, which inspired the family home in this story, Dogwood.  Both of these beautiful homes are designed by the uber talented James F. Farmer

 

 

Under the Southern Sky begins when Amelia, an investigative journalist, discovers that a cluster of frozen embryos belonging to her childhood friend Parker and his late wife Greer have been deemed “abandoned”–and she’s put in the unenviable position of having to tell him.

 

 

Parker and Amelia grew up as neighbors in the charming, seaside town of Cape Carolina, their houses next door to each other on the end of a gorgeous peninsula. 

 

 

Amelia’s mother Elizabeth, one of the protagonists, and Parker’s mother Olivia always dreamed when they were children that they would grow up, live next door to each other and have children that grew up to get married too.

 

 

They did end up living next door to each other.

 

 

But the rest of the dream hasn’t quite panned out, despite their intensive meddling.

 

 

The home Olivia and her family live in next door to Dogwood is beautiful and charming,

 

 

The perfect blend of Southern traditional style,

 

 

And modern updates.

 

 

When I’m creating homes on the page, I always love to draw inspiration from the pages of Design Chic.

 

 

And this gorgeous James Farmer home seemed to me the perfect place for Parker to have grown up. 

 

 

Cozy enough for family living,

 

 

Polished enough for entertaining in style,

 

 

And full of treasures collected from all stages of life,

 

 

This is the kind of house that truly becomes home.

 

 

From a sweet bath,

 

 

To a charming bedroom,

 

 

Every space is dripping with Farmer’s fabulous, signature style.

 

 

We love his use of color, pattern and texture to pull a room together in the exact right way,

 

 

And I know my characters Olivia and Parker would agree! Thanks to all of you who have already read or ordered Under the Southern Sky–and huge thanks to those who have visited me on tour, in real life or virtually! Your friendly faces are the absolute best part of being on the road.

If you haven’t read Under the Southern Sky yet, don’t miss the book that Country Living says is: “Perfect for: fans of beach reads, P.S. I Love You, and anything by authors Jennifer Weiner and Elin Hilderbrand. A perfect pick for book clubs or a weekend read, Under the Southern Sky follows journalist Amelia as she makes a heart-wrenching discovery that changes everything.”

Under the Southern Sky is AVAILABLE FROM: YOUR LOCAL BOOKSTORE, BOOKSHOP.ORGAMAZONBARNES & NOBLEBOOKS-A-MILLIONTARGET AND EVERYWHERE BOOKS ARE SOLD.

Signed Copies Available From: Oxford Exchange.

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.)

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,

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.)
