Feels Like falling by Kristy Woodson Harvey Beach house book
 

I am so excited that my new novel Feels Like Falling releases on April 28!

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. 

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.

Caroline’s House in the Hamptons

The Secret to Southern Charm - Hamptons Beach House

 

Good morning, chic readers! We hope you are having a great day. The Southern Side of Paradise (tour dates below!) is in full swing and we hope to see you while we’re traveling!

 

The Secret to Southern Charm - Hamptons Beach House

 

In my last novel, The Secret to Southern Charm, Peachtree Bluff’s least Southern sister, Caroline, has a gorgeous Hamptons home that is the site of one of the most memorable chapters of the book. And, this year, I’ll be touring in the Hamptons as well! Today, we are imagining what Caroline’s Hamptons Beach House might look like. Take a peek for yourself!

 

The Secret to Southern Charm - Hamptons Beach House

 

From The Secret to Southern Charm:

CAROLINE’S HOUSE IN EAST Hampton suited her perfectly.

 

The Secret to Southern Charm - kitchen - Hamptons Beach House

 

It wasn’t big, and it wasn’t on the water, but every inch of it was elegant and just modern enough.

 

The Secret to Southern Charm - kitchen - Hamptons Beach House

 

The entire palette was water blues and creams with touches of gold, seagrass, and plenty of natural beauty from resin coral and oyster shells.

 

The Secret to Southern Charm - sunroom - Hamptons Beach House

 

I had never been to it, of course. And walking through the front door, I instantly felt calm. 

 

The Secret to Southern Charm - bedroom - Hamptons Beach House

 

I assumed that’s what Mom had been going for when she designed it.

 

The Secret to Southern Charm - sitting room - Hamptons Beach House

 

We can picture all the members of the Murphy clan gathering in a spot just like this at Caroline’s gorgeous home, decorated for her by Ansley, her interior designer mother…

 

The Secret to Southern Charm - Hamptons Beach House

 

And receiving some of the biggest news of their lives. 

 

The Secret to Southern Charm - bathroom - Hamptons Beach House

 

In The Southern Side of Paradise, that news would most certainly surround youngest sister Emerson who has her fair share of conflict in this novel.

 

The Secret to Southern Charm - bathroom- Hamptons Beach House

 

We imagine this home to be perfectly styled but unfussy. This chicken wire sink is just that!

 

The Secret to Southern Charm - bedroom - Hamptons Beach House

 

What’s the beach without blues? A rattan nightstand and vintage bathing suit print are perfect for a casual Hamptons house. 

 

The Secret to Southern Charm

 

We love any beach cottage with shingles. Could this possibly be any more charming?

We hope you have loved this gorgeous New England home as much as we have. Thanks so much for making Design Chic a part of your day!

The Colors of Paradise

Good morning, chic readers! We are CELEBRATING today because, today, my fifth novel and the final book in my Peachtree Bluff Trilogy, The Southern Side of Paradise, releases!

Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles

 

After more than a year of writing, editing, promoting and, yes, picking the cover, it is so exciting to see the book come to life out in the world.

As you might imagine, I am a very visual person, so covers mean a lot to me.

I am so fortunate that my cover designer at Simon & Schuster is a genius–and came up with more than a dozen too-gorgeous-to-be-believed covers for me to choose from. I had the hardest time deciding which one fit the story best!

Ultimately, it came down to something pretty simple: the yellow. The cover I chose has a yellow hat and a yellow title, and, I don’t know about you, but I am loving yellow lately.

That yellow is combined with the perfect hot pink…

I sent this Gray Malin photo for cover inspiration. Water, sand, vibrant hues. It just feels like summertime, doesn’t it?

And these are the bright, bold hues to do it.

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).
