"Kristy Woodson Harvey cuts to the heart of what it means to be a born-and-bred Southerner, complete with the unique responsibilities, secrets and privileges that conveys. Discover four women who are at once different yet utterly the same, and a town that you won’t ever want to leave. Interior design, family secrets, life on the coast… it’s easy to see why everyone is buzzing about SLIGHTLY SOUTH OF SIMPLE." (Cassandra King)
"With a charming, coastal Southern setting, Slightly South of Simple is a heartfelt story about the universal themes of love, loss, forgiveness and family. I'm thrilled to hear that this book is part of series and look forward to getting to know this cast of strong Southern women even better." (- Erin Z. Bass Deep South Magazine)
"Kristy Woodson Harvey really knows how to tell a southern tale. Every single time her stories unwind gently, like a soft wind in Georgia, then that wind catches you off guard and throws you into her characters’ tumultuous lives. Slightly South of Simple is the same. One gracious, old home inherited from Grandma, one mother who has so many secrets if the walls talked they would pour out like lemonade on a hot summer day, and three headstrong sisters, all working their way through the chaotic mess and joy of life, together. I loved it." (--New York Times bestselling author Cathy Lamb)
"Heartfelt and warm, SLIGHTLY SOUTH OF SIMPLE deftly explores the familial ties that bind us— and those that have the power to break us. Kristy Woodson Harvey's cast of characters— and the charming beach town of Peachtree Bluff— will crawl into your soul and stay there." (--Colleen Oakley, author of Close Enough to Touch)
"If you haven’t already guessed it, we love our Southern fiction just as much as we love our sweet tea. The small coastal towns, the family chaos, the sexy tousled-haired neighbor that can fix anything that's broken...and we mean anything.
Harvey, considered to be the “it girl” of Southern fiction, introduces the first novel in the Peachtree Bluff Series this spring. Child, this book is everything! We’re hoping to see this soapy read on the Hallmark Channel.” (―Jamey Giddens Daytime Confidential)
“Harvey’s devotion to realistic character development pays off by the end of the novel, which provides clear resolutions to some plots and leaves other hanging in a way that practically begs for a sequel…because Harvey is meticulous about closing out each character’s arc in a satisfying way….SLIGHTLY SOUTH OF SIMPLE is so warm, inviting and real...” (--Bookpage)
“Fans of Nancy Thayer and Patti Callahan Henry will devour this story of the first of three sisters, the men in their lives, and the mother who bonds them all.” (―Booklist Online)
“My prediction is that writers come and writers go, but Kristy Woodson Harvey is here to stay. The warmth, wit, and wisdom of this novel pave her way into the exclusive sisterhood of southern writers.” (―The Huffington Post)
“If you’re looking for a new series to get lost into, this story of three sisters and their mother will have you flying through the pages.” (Glitter Guide)
“…full of heart, emotion, and Southern charm…” (PopSugar)

Ansley has secrets she is trying g to keep but is battling with revealing to her girls the true nature of their paternity and inheritance after their father had passed many years prior.
A beautiful story of a family coming together when they need each other the most as well as the comfort of coming home again.
Three very different type of sisters end up living with their mom at her home in Peachtree Bluff, Georgia for various reasons: Caroline lives in NYC and her husband is having a very public affair, Emerson, an actress, has a new role that is shooting in Georgia and Sloane's husband has been deployed to the Middle East. Ansley, their mom, has spent a lot of years living on her own and having all of her daughters plus three grandchildren (with one on the way) at her home, wrecks havoc with her quiet life. I really don't want to tell you much about the story, I just want to say that this book is Caroline's story and focuses most on her life. What I do want to write about are the best parts of this book:
SETTING - as with Kristy's other books, this one is at the ocean. You can smell the salt air and feel the ocean breezes as you read the book. The setting is practically one of the characters.
PLOT - there is a lot going on in this book but it is well told and so much fun to read. Yes, I will admit that there were several laugh out loud moments as well as a few tears.
CHARACTERS - to me this is the strongest part of this novel. I loved these characters. I feel like they are people that I know and that I could sit down at the table and have a cup of coffee with them. The sisters are so different from each other but the bond between them is unbreakable.
SUMMARY - READ THIS BOOK! It's a wonderful story about growing up and overcoming adversity. It's a story about love and family - the sisters are wonderful and that bond between them and their mother, though tenuous at times, continues to grow. It's a wonderful book about love and family and isn't that what life is all about?
