Ansley is the mother of three women, who lives alone in the quiet town of Peachtree Bluff. She runs a successful design shop named after her two youngest daughters. When her children converge on her home, they each bring along life’s trials and tribulations. However it is a shipwrecked boat that threatens to bring back a lost love and deep-rooted secrets. How will she keep her past from her girls, while maintaining her perfectly calm and peaceful life that she has finally achieved?
So as you may have noticed, I have been missing since February. My apologies. I have been battling some serious health issues and they completely sidelined me. This past week, I finally was able to return to work and this evening, I was finally able to sit at my desk and begin working again from home. Since April 1st, I had not been on the computer, but as of tonight, all of my emails are caught up. WHEW!
Some good news for you:
1. I believe most of the issues have been fixed on my website. I am still working on the weekly newsletter, but I should have that up and running soon. All my reviews should be visible and you can leave comments again. I am testing the website on numerous platforms, but I think that I have corrected everything. Yay!!!!!
Each month, I will provide a list of new releases that you will definitely want to read.
(11th) The Night the Lights Went Out by Karen White – Southern Fiction
(25th) Slightly South of Simple by Kristy Woodson Harvey – Southern Fiction
As you know, I have been dealing with WordPress issues and visibility issues on this website since Nov. 8th. Apparently the latest version of WordPress has messed up numerous websites. While I have been dealing with numerous support chats and getting nowhere near a resolution, I have declared enough is enough!
What does this mean for you exactly???
- Every single review that has been in my pending folder, will be published.
- February 1st will be the start of my 2017 plans. (YOU WILL NOT WANT TO MISS THIS!!!!!)
- I can only guarantee that the current 9 reviews will be visible on this home page. (If you click on an individual post, you could scroll through all of them, but who has time for that.)
- All reviews will be posted on social media. You can follow me there, to see everything as well. (See this page for the full list.)
- If you want to Subscribe to email updates, please fill out this form. You can choose between weekly, daily, or monthly updates.
I appreciate your continued patience as I have dealt with everything behind the scenes. I am currently working on switching my site to a more stable and reliable platform and will keep you updated on the progress. In the meantime, I want to officially close out all of my 2016 reviews, so WE can move on to brighter things in 2017. Stick around folks, because it is going to be a fantastic year!!!!
Have a wonderful night!

“We will open the book. Its pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year’s Day.”
