Excited to Share the Cover for My New Novel The Secret to Southern Charm

MORE ABOUT THE SECRET TO SOUTHERN CHARM BOOK 2 OF THE PEACHTREE BLUFF SERIES:

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).

White House, Big Charm

Tim Barber, Ltd

 

Good morning, chic readers! We hope you are having a wonderful day and that, if you are in the path of Irma, you are staying safe. And friends affected by Hurricane Harvey, our thoughts and prayers are with you as you rebuild.  All of this crazy weather really has us thinking lately about how important our homes are to us. These stunning white houses are full of charm and character. They are welcoming spaces that we are certain beckon their owners home each night. While we focus a lot on interiors, on how our favorite cozy chair and that painting we couldn’t take our eyes off of make us feel a certain way, the exteriors of our house can–and should–do that exact same thing. 

Paul Bates Architects

 

If a home should be anything at all, we think it should be welcoming. Window boxes and a trellis covered in vines are two of the best ways we can think of to take a home’s exterior from plain to positively darling. It’s simple touches like this that make a home feel loved and lived in. And don’t our special spaces deserve to be cared for?

Landscaping is obviously one of the most important ways to make your home feel unique. While we love flowers and big blooms, there’s something stately about a classic cluster of Boxwoods flanking the front door. Well-maintained foliage always contributes something special to a home’s exterior and gives the sense that there is a staid, lovely interior beyond the front door.

We are suckers for black and white, but a splash of color is always welcome. A bluefront doors adds an undeniably charming feel to this impeccably manicured lot.

 

There’s no doubt about it: Adding exterior color increases curb appeal. Plus, it’s easy to tell visitors that yours is the house with the blue door! Porches add character in droves and make for great porch sitting, especially during the cool fall months. 

 

What are your favorite ways to add character to a home’s exterior? Do you have any home improvement projects on your wish list?

Thank you so much for stopping by today. We always love seeing you!

Thank You For Making Slightly South of Simple a National Bestseller

I cannot believe it, but Slightly South of Simple is a National Bestseller, hitting bestseller lists from Barnes & Noble to Bookscan, Southern Indie to Southern Pines and spending weeks on smaller bestseller lists in places like Salisbury, NC (my fab hometown and home of South Main Book Co.) and Bethlehem, PA. Sixteen weeks after its release, Slightly South is still holding its own on many of these lists. I’m pinching myself every day and can’t thank you enough for all your support! Happy weekend, sweet friends!
