Kristy’s novels include Dear Carolina, Lies and Other Acts of Love, Slightly South of Simple, and The Secret to Southern Charm. Her newest book, The Southern Side of Paradise, was a finalist for the Southern Book Prize, and her work has been optioned for film and has been included on multiple publications’ lists of the best summer and beach reads.

The Southern Side of Paradise is Kristy Woodson Harvey’s third novel in her beloved Peachtree Bluff series. The novel features 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.

After finding out her military husband is missing in action, middle sister Sloane’s world crumbles as her worst nightmare comes true. She can barely climb out of bed, much less summon the strength to be the parent her children deserve. Her mother, Ansley, provides a much-needed respite as she puts her personal life on hold to help Sloane and her grandchildren wade through their new grief-stricken lives. But between caring for her own aging mother, her daughters, and her grandchildren, Ansley’s private worry is that secrets from her past will come to light.

But when Sloane’s sisters, Caroline and Emerson, remind Sloane that no matter what, she promised her husband she would carry on for their young sons, Sloane finds the support and courage she needs to chase her biggest dreams—and face her deepest fears. Taking a cue from her middle daughter, Ansley takes her own leap of faith and realizes that, after all this time, she might finally be able to have it all.
