Woodson Harvey is a new author for me. She is also one of the sweetest and extremely personable. I have said for the last two summers
that I would read one of her books. This summer I had the opportunity. Today I
am sharing with you Slightly South of Simple by Kristy Woodson Harvey.
Murphy has decided to go back to the one place she detests the most Peachtree
Bluff. Her mother moved her and her sisters there when she was a teenager. What
is the reason to leave New York? Her husband had a very public affair with a
model and it is chronicled on a reality television show Ladies Who Lunch. So
Caroline must also bring her sisters Emerson and Sloane home to Peachtree
Bluff. Ansley their mother ends up with a full house. Her old flame Jack
returns with secrets that impact Ansley’s past. Will she be open to a new
future or will she be stuck in the past? What will Caroline decide?
loved this book! Kristy has a unique voice to her writing which comes across
the page beautifully. It made for a very
easy read. I also loved how she added subtle humor throughout the book. Kristy
excels in writing about sisters and their conflicts. She has created a magical
world in Peachtree Bluff. The setting reminded me a little of the Gilmore Girls
which has a town cast full of characters as well.
this is Kristy’s first series I was a little disappointed with how Slightly
South of Simple ended. I felt that it was not all tied up, but we might see
more resolution in the future books? Slightly South of Simple is the first book
of the series. This series will chronicle the sisters Caroline, Sloane, and
Emerson. This book is still worth taking to the beach for a great read!
