Kristy Woodson Harvey returns with the second novel in her “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.
In THE SECRET TO SOUTHERN CHARM, (GalleryBooks), after finding out her military husband is missing in action, middle sister Sloane’s world falls apart. She can barely climb out of bed, much less be the parent her children deserve.
Her mother, Ansley, provides much-needed help as she puts her personal life on hold to help Sloane and her grandchildren. But between caring for her own aging mother, her daughters, and her grandchildren, Ansley’s private worry reveals secrets from her past.
When Sloane’s sisters, Caroline and Emerson, remind Sloane that no matter what, they’ll help her, Sloane finds the support and courage she needs to chase her biggest dreams—and face her deepest fears.
Kristy has this homey way of writing that you just want to sit down with a cuppa and relax with the novel. THE SECRET TO SOUTHERN CHARM has mothers, daughters, sisters, secrets and love; what more could you ask for? Another book to put on your TBR!
