In any season, in any country, we’re pretty convinced that beach life is the best life.

And, if we were on the fence, this mix of beach houses by Ashley Gilbreath has certainly convinced us.

And with the right amount of laid-back feel, these gorgeous beach houses are the kind of place we’d love to lounge all year long.

We adore the idea of gathering friends and family around a dinner table for a delicious meal,

And each of these homes provides the perfect space for just that–

The Cover Reveal for My New Novel The Secret to Southern Charm

kristy woodson harvey

MORE ABOUT MY BOOK:

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 that proves why she is the next major voice in Southern fiction” (Elin Hilderbrand, New York Times bestselling author).

Did you hear that book #2 is ready for PREORDER? To celebrate, we are giving away a $100 Amazon gift card! The winner will be announced September 18!
