Thanks so much to everyone who has been so supportive of my Peachtree Bluff series. If you haven’t read Slightly South of Simple or The Secret to Southern Charm, pick up your copies before The Southern Side of Paradise (NOW AVAILABLE FOR PREORDER!) releases May 7, 2019!

 

Here’s What’s Next from the Murphy Women:

From internationally bestselling author and “rising star of Southern fiction” (Mary Alice Monroe, New York Times bestselling author) Kristy Woodson Harvey comes the third novel in her Peachtree Bluff series, in which a secret threatens the tight-knit bond between a trio of sisters and their mother.

With the man of her dreams back in her life and all three of her daughters happy, Ansley Murphy should be content. But she can’t help but feel like it’s all a little too good to be true.

Meanwhile, youngest daughter and actress Emerson, who is recently engaged and has just landed the role of a lifetime, seemingly has the world by the tail. Only, something she can’t quite put her finger on is worrying her—and it has nothing to do with her recent health scare.

When two new women arrive in Peachtree Bluff—one who has the potential to wreck Ansley’s happiness and one who could tear Emerson’s world apart—everything is put in perspective. And after secrets that were never meant to be told come to light, the powerful bond between the Murphy sisters and their mother comes crumbling down, testing their devotion to each other and forcing them to evaluate the meaning of family.

With Kristy Woodson Harvey’s signature charm, wit, and heart, The Southern Side of Paradise is another masterful Peachtree Bluff novel that proves she is a “Southern writer with staying power” (Booklist).

HAPPY FRIDAY, FRIENDS!

The Ultimate Escape in North Palm Beach

Susan Lovell Interior Design, Photography by Eric Piasecki

 

Good morning, chic friends! I just got back from an awesome weekend in Chicago with the members of my Tall Poppy Writers group, and we had the best time! I haven’t been to Chicago since I was little (even though I’ve been to its beautiful suburbs on book tour), and it is such an amazing city!

abstract art Suzanne Lovell

It was, however, a bit of a shock to my system to leave 87 degree Beaufort and land in freezing Chicago.

Suzanne Lovell entrance

My wake-up call this morning, (By an actual live human being, not a recorder… I know!) said, “Good morning, Mrs. Harvey. The current temperature is thirty-eight degrees.”

Suzanne Lovell living room

Here’s a tip: If you ever have to get me out of bed at 5:30 am, do not lead with the fact that it’s 38 degrees.

Suzanne Lovell living room

Needless to say, I was glad to get back to my eighties. I love the change of seasons. I really do.

Suzanne Lovell bar

But, well, the cold weather over the weekend has me thinking about one special place: Florida.

Suzanne Lovell living room

(Don’t tell my husband. It will make him nervous. I will honestly move at the drop of a hat. Probably because I always want to redecorate.)

Suzanne Lovell living room

Anyway, I am a North Carolina girl through and through, but Florida certainly has its charms.

Suzanne Lovell bar

And if I were going to pick a favorite town in Florida, it would have to be Palm Beach.

Suzanne Lovell bedroom

This gorgeous house makes an excellent case as to why. All that amazing architecture.

Suzanne Lovell bedroom

Enviable interiors that are elegant and chic.

Suzanne Lovell bathroom

And, oh yeah, the outdoors aren’t bad either.

Suzanne Lovell bedroom

As with most of the best things in life, it’s the details that make this house so incomparable. A very special reading lamp,

Suzanne Lovell porch

A pretty pop of color on the porch,

But maybe best of all, a 60-year-old Banyan tree.

As we well know, the best things in life are free, but this stunning home by Suzanne Lovell Interior Design, with photography Eric Piasecki, might be a pretty close second!

In Other News…

Finally, after all this time, I am beyond thrilled to announce that the third series in the Peachtree Bluff Series, THE SOUTHERN SIDE OF PARADISE will be released into the world on…

May 7, 2019! 

I am beyond excited and have been so flattered and overwhelmed with all of your sweet emails and messages asking when you are going to get more of the Murphy girls. And, y’all, I can’t express to you how excited I am to release the LAST installment of The Peachtree Bluff Series into the world. My first series has been a privilege and a joy, and I have YOU to thank for that!

I also wanted to share with you that THE SOUTHERN SIDE OF PARADISE is available for pre-order now from your local bookstore, IndieboundAmazon and Barnes & Noble (Only in hardback and paperback so far. E-books to come!)–and, this week, it’s for a great cause!

Let’s Help Hurricane Florence Victims Together!

From Saturday, October 12-October 19 I will be donating 100% of the profits from the pre-order of THE SOUTHERN SIDE OF PARADISE to United Way of Coastal Carolina and Lenoir/Greene County, specifically for Hurricane Florence relief. Many of you know that Eastern NC was hard hit by Hurricane Florence–and Hurricane Michael on its tail was another major setback. While we are beginning to repair there will be months and months of clean up and rebuilding to come. Thousands lost their homes and shelters are still filled weeks after the storm. There is so much to be done!

And Be Automatically Entered in the Peachtree Bluff Takeover Giveaway!

AND, next June 1. 2019, Peachtree Bluff will be “taking over” Beaufort, NC, the town on which it was based. Every single person who preorders between now now and will be registered to win:

*Two tickets to the Peachtree Bluff Town Takeover and Tour–on Beaufort’s signature double decker red buses!

*Two tickets to the farm-to-table dinner and launch party under the stars at the Beaufort Historic Site

*Two nights lodging in Beaufort, NC

Just send an email with proof of purchase to [email protected] to enter!

Here’s What’s Next from the Murphy Women:

From internationally bestselling author and “rising star of Southern fiction” (Mary Alice Monroe, New York Times bestselling author) Kristy Woodson Harvey comes the third novel in her Peachtree Bluff series, in which a secret threatens the tight-knit bond between a trio of sisters and their mother.
