Last week, I came home from work to discover a book in my mailbox. As you might guess, I was very excited. When I opened it up to see it was the latest book from Kristy Woodson Harvey, I was thrilled. I read it on Friday and couldn’t wait to share my recommendation with all of you. So mark your calendars for April 3rd, because you will not want to miss out on this spectacular story!
The Secret to Southern Charm
By: Kristy Woodson Harvey
(Peachtree Bluff #2)
Sloane’s world collapsed, the second she learned her husband was missing in action in the Middle East. Now she has to try and raise her two sons, when all she wants to do is remember her husband’s smile and pray for his return. It is up to her sisters and her mom to pull Sloane out of this horrific nightmare and encourage her to keep moving forward. Meanwhile, Ansley has pushed away her first love, fearing that her daughters will learn about her long kept secrets. Her home life has turned to caring for her mom, her three daughters, and her grandchildren. Will these two strong, Southern, women find a way to move forward or will life’s plans consume them?
Kristy Woodson Harvey pens a love letter to military spouses with this novel. It shows the true meaning of family, as readers follow three generations of women, each mothering in their own way. Just as first loves remain in your heart for a lifetime, it is important to read the first book in the series, in order to appreciate the charm of this story. This book is a powerful reminder of the importance of family, whether through blood or friendship.
I truly loved this book. I could completely relate to Sloane’s never-ending fear and some of the things Ansley said, reminded me of my Mom’s own thoughts. I can’t wait to see where life takes these strong women, in book 3.
I signed up to honestly review an ARC.
