FEELS LIKE FALLING by Kristy Woodson Harvey – Spotlight & Giveaway



It’s summertime on the North Carolina coast and the livin’ is easy in Kristy Woodson Harvey’s new novel, FEELS LIKE FALLING (GalleryBooks).

Unless, that is, you’ve just lost your mother to cancer, your sister to her evangelical husband, and your husband to his executive assistant. Meet Gray Howard. Right when Gray could use a serious infusion of good karma in her life, she inadvertently gets a stranger fired from her job at the local pharmacy.

Diana Harrington’s summer isn’t off to the greatest start either: Hours before losing her job, she broke up with her boyfriend and moved out of their shared house with only a busted Impala for a bed. Lucky for her, Gray has an empty guest house and a very guilty conscience.

With Gray’s kindness, Diana’s tide begins to turn, but when the one that got away comes back, every secret from her past seems to resurface all at once. And, as Gray begins to blaze a new trail, she discovers, with Diana’s help, that what she envisioned as her perfect life may not be what she wants at all.

In her warmest, wittiest, and wisest novel yet, Kristy Woodson Harvey delivers a discerning portrait of modern womanhood through two vastly different lenses. Feels Like Falling is a beach bag essential for Harvey fans—and for a new generation of readers.kristy

  1. I LOVE Southern Fiction so much! So many of my favorite authors are SF authors! I’ve read many in this past year. Also my daughter and her adorable family live south so my travels have taken me there often in the last 10 years!


  2. I enjoy Southern Fiction; in fact, book I’m reading now “The Antidote To Everything” by Kimmery Martin (thanks Cindy) is set in SC.


  3. I love souther fiction. I discovered it with Dorthea Benton Frank and have been hooked since. Thanks for this giveaway.


  4. I do love Southern Fiction. Great locations, great family dynamics. I loved the first two books in this series, but have not read this one yet. Thanks for the chance.


  5. They just seem to have a warm welcome homey feeling about them. Something I desperately need during my solitary confinement (I live alone). Thanks for the opportunity.


  6. Southern fiction is the best and Kristy Woodson Harvey writes a fantastic book. The scenery and descriptions are always beautiful. Her Peachtree Bluff trilogy is one of the all-time best and I can’t wait for this new book.


  7. Southern Fiction is what I want to read here in New England on a cold, thunderstorm kind of day like today. If I weren’t an essential worker, sitting in my office doing not really essential stuff, I would be home in my chair, with a blanket, a cup of coffee and Slightly South of Simple, which I am about halfway through. Southern fiction transports me to the low country of the Carolinas, the islands of Georgia, shrimp and grits and hot summer days and cool summer evenings on the coast. Stay healthy everyone!


  8. Being from Michigan, it’s like a little vacation for myself when I get to read Southern fiction. I love traveling to the low country and enjoying the cadence of those slow, southern drawals.


  9. I’m a southern girl myself so southern fiction is close to heart. So many fabulous southern writers: Dorothea Benton Frank, Mary Alice Monroe, Patti Callahan Henry, Mary Kay Andrews, Donna Everhart, Rick Bragg, Laura Lane McNeal, Pat Conroy, Cassandra King, Diane Chamberlain, Brenda McClain to name a few favorites. Kristy Harvey is the newest southern author who has become a favorite. I’ve enjoyed her books and would love to add this one to my collection.


  10. I like southern fiction, but being from the Northwest, I think I like it better😜 Haven’t been to the south so I have nothing to compare it to.
