What a perfect summer read! This novel explores the dynamics between sisters and mothers and daughters, what it means to be in a successful marriage, and the many ways one can live life on their terms. While Caroline and Ansley have their opinions of how to be happy, the events surrounding the women in Peachtree Bluff prove there is no one correct answer to life’s surprises. The small-town atmosphere, Southern charm, and emotional core are at the heart of this enjoyable beach read. Fans of Elin Hilderbrand and Mary Kay Andrews will especially like this new voice in Southern fiction – particularly with a glass of iced sweet tea.

Slightly South of Simple is the first book I've read by Kristy Woodson Harvey. I confess! I chose Slightly South of Simple simply for the too great title, but I found the story compelling (in a beachy way) if not written as tightly as it could have been. There were spots in some of the little subplots that seemed to just come out of nowhere, and then go nowhere, as some of the subplots themselves did, but that did not detract from the main story itself.

I think it's worth finding out more about the 'Peachtree Bluff' folks in The Secret to Southern Charm.

Can't wait for the next books in the series. Good story of sisterhood and motherhood. Family support and understanding ways of the heart and mind.

A fresh new voice in Southern fiction. Her characters will stick with you long after you've read the last page.
