Good morning, chic readers! We hope you had an amazing weekend! I had some of the most fun four days ever as one of the celebrity guests at the Wilmington, NC Azalea Festival, celebrating the launch week of my new novel, Lies and Other Acts of Love. Let me tell you, these people party in style. (Check out some of my favorite photos below!)
Today, I’m in the gorgeous town of Southern Pines, NC, and will be signing at The Country Bookshop at 5pm. If you’re in the area, I’d love it if you’d come say hi!
In Lies and Other Acts of Love, Annabelle, one of the protagonists, and her husband Ben camp out in his parents’ gorgeous guest house for a while after they move back to Salisbury, NC. (My hometown and where Mom and Dad still live!)
The guest house is so gorgeous that Annabelle proclaims she could live there comfortably for the rest of her life.
When this beautiful space caught our eye, we couldn’t help but imagine it to be similar to where Annabelle and Ben were living.
Lovely and luxurious, this is just the kind of place where we would love to be guests!
The space feels homey yet streamlined, which we absolutely love.
And well-placed planks on the walls and ceilings add charm in droves.
Just like in Lies and Other Acts of Love, this fabulous guest house comes with its very own pool view, perfect for catching some rays on summer days.
