This was a sweet book. I have the second one in the series. Looking forward to reading it.
Highly recommend. This is a story about sisters and relationships between. This is the first in a trilogy. Caroline is 7 months pregnant when her husband leaves her for a 20 yr old super model. She goes home to stay with her mother in Peachtree Bluff. The story goes back and forth between the past and present. I loved these characters.
"...The butterflies make you feel giddy and alive, and that‘s sweet. But it‘s what happens after that really matters. It‘s the time you realize that your love has grown exponentially since that first day, when you discover that being someone‘s wife, being in it for the long haul, having someone there beside you day in and day out, is so much better than any roses on Valentine‘s day or any first-date-jitters you could ever have."
I really enjoyed this book. It was exactly what I needed to ease me into summer. I love stories set in the south, as well as stories that focus on mother daughter relationships. In the past, I have struggled when 9/11 is used as a part of the story- I STILL have a hard time with the anniversary of that day. But in this book, while it was important to the overall story, it was discussed in such a way that didn‘t take away from everything else. 👇
Y‘all, this story had me wanting more, more, more. Good thing I have the second book of the Peachtree Bluff novels. The characters become people you feel like you know! It is about past secrets, loss, love but most of all about family. The true meaning of family is clearly reflected in this southern novel.
4⭐️ Slightly South of Simple explores the unique bonds between sisters, and between mothers and their daughters. It‘s about the people that are there for you when times get tough, and the sacrifices we make for family. The setting in Peachtree Bluff is enchanting and delightful. https://lharvey250.tumblr.com/post/172794045959/slightly-south-of-simple-peachtr...

#Areyoukiddingme $1.99?!?! I love her books!!!
I hope everyone is having a Happy Easter!!!🐣🐇🐰❤️
Excellent read with quirky characters who are real, relatable, and flawed.
What I most like about Kristy Woodson Harvey‘s books is that her characters live in the shades of gray that are not always socially acceptable, but are authentic.
Simon and Schuster picked up my blog post. Yippeeee. You can read it here
Pure enjoyment to read! I wasn't ready for the story to end and as luck would have is written as part of a new series-- The Peachtree Bluff Novels.
OK... so now I've decided I really *NEED* her other books too👌🏻😬😬😬 #kristywoodsonharvey #peachtreebluffnovel
Starting this one before bedtime!! I have everything I need to go to sleep... book, tea, chapstick and a snoring husband 😳😤😡
This was such a good read! Amazing writing and great characters. I don't read a lot of women's fiction. When I really love a book in this category then I know it's a very special book. This is a great spring read and I highly recommend it to everyone! I can't wait for the follow ups in this series.
"It was almost Memorial Day and just cool enough. The entire summer lay ahead, ripe with promise, teeming with possibility, a flower right on the verge of blooming. You could taste the energy of that night as clearly as the potato salad, as if everyone was leaving behind the stress of the year, sending it out to sea, letting it go to fully enjoy this, one of the most special places on the planet."
There are so many great aspects to this read. Wonderful setting, awesome characters and there are some fabulous lines in this book. Full review here https://reecaspieces.com/2017/02/17/slightly-south-of-simple-by-kristy-woodson-h...
