Feels Like falling by Kristy Woodson Harvey

Donations for Hurricane Dorian

Just a quick note: From September 13 until September 20, I am going to be donating 100% of my proceeds from preorders of Feels Like Falling to the Red Cross to help hurricane victims both in the Bahamas and locally here in NC. Simply order from your bookstore of choice and email me at [email protected] to let me know so I can donate for you!

If you have $15 lying around and you want to do something with it, by all means, please donate it to the hurricane. But if you were going to order Feels Like Falling anyway, let’s join forces to help out together!

 

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.

House Tour: Stunning in Stone

Phoebe Howard Entrance in stone floors

Charlotte House

As you can probably imagine, we can’t get enough of finding new designers to talk about!

But there are some that have a forever place in our hearts, whose work we love to swoon over day after day, year after year, whose new projects we wait impatiently for.

Phoebe Howard is one of those designers.

Her style is understated, traditional enough without looking old-fashioned, modern enough without looking trendy… It is, in short, the epitome of classic southern style for the new millennium.

Even in the simplest rooms, there is a richness about Howard’s style, a sense of luxury that permeates, especially where textiles are concerned.

Her perfectly chosen color palettes draw you in, adding the right amount of warmth and interest while creating a feeling of continuity.

“One of the hottest new Southern writers.” —Parade

From the next “major voice in Southern fiction” (Elin Hilderbrand, New York Times bestselling author) comes the first in an all-new series chronicling the journeys of three sisters and their mother—and a secret from their past that has the potential to tear them apart and reshape their very definition of what it means to be a family.

Caroline Murphy swore she’d never set foot back in the small Southern town of Peachtree Bluff; she was a New York girl born and bred and the worst day of her life was when, in the wake of her father’s death, her mother selfishly forced her to move—during her senior year of high school, no less—back to that hick-infested rat trap where she’d spent her childhood summers. But now that her marriage to a New York high society heir has fallen apart in a very public, very embarrassing fashion, a pregnant Caroline decides to escape the gossipmongers with her nine-year-old daughter and head home to her mother, Ansley.

Ansley has always put her three daughters first, especially when she found out that her late husband, despite what he had always promised, left her with next to nothing. Now the proud owner of a charming waterfront design business and finally standing on her own two feet, Ansley welcomes Caroline and her brood back with open arms. But when her second daughter Sloane, whose military husband is overseas, and youngest daughter and successful actress Emerson join the fray, Ansley begins to feel like the piece of herself she had finally found might be slipping from her grasp. Even more discomfiting, when someone from her past reappears in Ansley’s life, the secret she’s harbored from her daughters their entire lives might finally be forced into the open.

Exploring the powerful bonds between sisters and mothers and daughters, this engaging novel is filled with Southern charm, emotional drama, and plenty of heart.
