Slightly South of Simple | Kristy Woodson Harvey
41 posts | 18 read | 28 to read
From the next major voice in Southern fiction ("New York Times "bestselling author Elin Hilderbrand) comes the first in an all-new series chronicling the journeys of three sisters and their mother and a secret from their past that has the potential to tear them apart and reshape their very definition of what it means to be a family. Caroline Murphy swore she d never set foot back in the small Southern town of Peachtree Bluff; she was a New York girl born and bred and the worst day of her life was when, in the wake of her father s death, her mother selfishly forced her to move during her senior year of high school, no less back to that hick-infested rat trap where she'd spent her childhood summers. But now that her marriage to a New York high society heir has fallen apart in a very public, very embarrassing fashion, a pregnant Caroline decides to escape the gossipmongers with her nine-year-old daughter and head home to her mother, Ansley. Ansley has always put her three daughters first, especially when she found out that her late husband, despite what he had always promised, left her with next to nothing. Now the proud owner of a charming waterfront design business and finally standing on her own two feet, Ansley welcomes Caroline and her brood back with open arms. But when her second daughter Sloane, whose military husband is overseas, and youngest daughter and successful actress Emerson join the fray, Ansley begins to feel like the piece of herself she had finally found might be slipping from her grasp. Even more discomfiting, when someone from her past reappears in Ansley's life, the secret she s harbored from her daughters their entire lives might finally be forced into the open. Exploring the powerful bonds between sisters and mothers and daughters, this engaging novel is filled with Southern charm, emotional drama, and plenty of heart."

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.

bodacioustchr Also read the 2 sequels. Loved the stories 3mo

Finishing this one up this morning. I could listen to Ansley all day! This Wisconsin girl is convinced she should have been born into a small southern town like Peachtree Bluff. Can‘t wait to continue on with this story.

tammysue I love this series 💕 7mo

"...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. 👇

AmberWB I can‘t wait to read the next book in the series!! 1y

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...

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.

I loved this book! I'm hoping it's the beginning of at least a trilogy because the ending just felt a little unfinished.

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.

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."
