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).

The Secret to southern Charm

Leaving fans “practically [begging] for a sequel” (Bookpage), critically acclaimed author Kristy Woodson Harvey returns with the second novel in her beloved Peachtree Bluff series, featuring a trio of sisters and their mother who discover a truth that will change not only the way they see themselves, but also how they fit together as a family.

After finding out her military husband is missing in action, middle sister Sloane’s world crumbles as her worst nightmare comes true. She can barely climb out of bed, much less summon the strength to be the parent her children deserve.

Her mother, Ansley, provides a much-needed respite as she puts her personal life on hold to help Sloane and her grandchildren wade through their new grief-stricken lives. But between caring for her own aging mother, her daughters, and her grandchildren, Ansley’s private worry is that secrets from her past will come to light.

But when Sloane’s sisters, Caroline and Emerson, remind Sloane that no matter what, she promised her husband she would carry on for their young sons, Sloane finds the support and courage she needs to chase her biggest dreams—and face her deepest fears. Taking a cue from her middle daughter, Ansley takes her own leap of faith and realizes that, after all this time, she might finally be able to have it all.

Harvey’s signature warmth and wit make this a charming and poignant story of first loves, missed opportunities, and second chances and proves that she is “the next major voice in Southern fiction” (Elin Hilderbrand, New York Times bestselling author).

Organizing Our Homes for the Holidays

Remodelista Organizing home

We normally post about  organization on New Year’s. It seems like a great way to get a new year off to a fresh start. But, this year, we decided that maybe it makes more sense to get a jump on the organization before the holiday celebrating commences.

Remodelista Organizing home

With a little help from our friends Julie and Margot’s new book, Remodelista: The Organized Homewe can’t wait to get started!

Remodelista Organizing closet

Who doesn’t want a closet perfectly color coordinated,

Remodelista Organizing kitchen refrigerator

And a refrigerator so neat that you can actually see what is inside!

Remodelista Organizing kitchen

I was just checking out some of my kitchen cabinets, you know, the ones that were so sparse, spare and compulsively organized a few months ago… And they’re already messy again!

Remodelista Organizing kitchen

I mean, I’ll be honest. My drawer is never going to look like that. One pair of scissors is never going to cut it in our apple-corer, cheese-grater, pineapple-corer, every-gadget-known-to-man kitchen. But this gives me something to strive for at least!

Remodelista Organizing kitchen

This morning I’ll be at it again with help from Remodelista: The Organized Home, sorting and storing the strays that accumulated over the weekend. But, in the end, it will all be worth it. Because, when the clutter is gone and the lights are bright, there really isn’t a happier place than home!
Wishing you a happy in Monday in — of course — your happy place!
