Do you love a good book as much as I do?


Then I know you will l o v e my brilliant friend Kristy’s latest book!



I’m thrilled to be collaborating with Kristy Woodson Harvey

for this post and Give Away.





This is the third book in the Peachtree Bluff Series, and with every book,

I fall more in love with the charming Murphy women.

Being an only child, I admire the love these three sisters and their mother

have for one another.



Like all families, there are plenty of thick and thin times for this family.








Since I have no siblings, the relationship the sisters Emerson, Caroline and Sloane

have together fascinates me. They are each other’s best friends,

know each other’s secrets, and what buttons to push while arguing,

but are fierce in their protective love for each other.



Like the first two books, I couldn’t put this book down!


 I really don’t want to give too much away, so here is just a little preview.




The setting is Peachtree Bluff {if you have read book #1 and #2 you will join me in wanting to live there!}
and Mom Ansley has the man of her dreams back in her life.

She should be happy, but she can’t help feel

like it’s all a little too good to be true.



Emerson, her youngest daughter who is an actress, who gets engaged

and also scores a prime new film role, feels the same way.


Everything is put into perspective when two women arrive in town

who could wreck Ansley’s joy and rip Emerson’s world apart.



Secrets….which were never meant to be told a r e   …..

testing this family of women’s devotion to each other.



Southern Author Kristy Woodson Harvey



Kristy is a genius at exploring each character’s true inner nature.

She shows you just WHO these women are, and like all of us,


these women weather the storms and celebrate the victories in their lives.



I read a lot, and sometimes it’s just plain disheartening how a story will wrap up in 5 pages and you are feeling disappointed.





Not this ending.

It’s so satisfying, and it left me feeling content

knowing that the Murphy women are living happily-ever-after

like I wanted them to all along.




Because isn’t that really what we want for women we love? Fictional or otherwise?
