  • Amazing Southern Charm

    I am hooked on Kristy Woodson Harvey’s southern charm. While reading I was actually hearing the characters with southern accents, picturing them in their houses with wraparound porches, and drinking sweet tea. The Secret to Southern Charm is the second book in The Peachtree Bluff Series. I think that the books are better read in order. Book two starts off exactly where book one ended. The storyline continues with Ansley, Caroline, Sloane, and Emerson all back in Georgia together. We learn about Sloane’s life as a military wife and the fears she had when she was first married. I saw Sloane’s strength when dealing with her husband’s MIA status, while she needed a little push to get out of her own head and back into the real world I could see her figuring out how to put one foot in front of the other getting back to living. She took care of her children, she painted again, and she found out what was missing of herself even before the MIA. While this is mostly Sloane’s story the spotlight is shared with the rest of her family. I loved catching up with Ansley and her long ago love Jack, seeing Emerson and Mark being together, and watching Caroline figure out if James is who she is meant to be with. These are storylines that are not quite done. There is more in store for each of these characters. I am excited for more of Peachtree Bluff series and the amazing Southern Charm.

  • Loved it!

    It had been a while since I read the first book in this series so I didn't remember anything of the plot, but it didn't take long to bring back the gist of the novel. The three sisters and their Mom had a complicated but loving relationship. With one husband MIA, and an unknown sperm donor, but not really, it's a great read. Loved it!

  • strong female characters/beautiful southern settin

    Perhaps, if I had read the first of this series,I would have liked it more. Instead, I spent the first few chapter sorting the characters out. This book is about the lives and relationships between 3 sisters and their mother. and grandmother. Each character was an interesting story in itself and made even better when the stories were interrelated. The side characters were interesting and at times fun. One of the girls told much of her story through reading letters from her husband over and over. He was MIA in the Middle East. (I presume) It was for me and interesting way to meet a character. The flavor of the south is beautiful and real. I would recommend this book to others who like strong female characters and those that grow into their strength when the need arises

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • I absolutely adored this story.

    I was so excited to read more about one of my favorite southern families in The Secret to Southern Charm by Kristy Woodson Harvey, and this book delivered! A second book in the series, I absolutely adored digging deeper into this family’s daily life, drama, and emotional battles. While I think this book could be read as a standalone, I don’t’ think you will gain the connection with Ansley and her girls if you skip the first book. Ansley has begun to adjust to her three daughters living with her in Peachtree Bluff and life is beginning to settle in as much as possible. She still has her hands full, as her mother has come to visit and seems to be ill and her daughter Sloane’s military husband is MIA. She is tempted to rekindle a long past relationship, but wonders if she really has time, while juggling her shop and caring for her mother, daughters and grandchildren. Sloane knew her husband being in the military meant she could lose him at any point, but it doesn’t make receiving the terrifying news of him missing any less painful. Holing herself up for many weeks, she struggles to remind herself that her children still need her to be their Mommy. With her mom, grammy and sisters’ support, she pulls herself out of her mourning and fights to regain control of her life. While the first book in the series spent more time focusing on Ansley and her oldest daughter Caroline, this book bounced between Ansley and her middle daughter Sloane, while she struggles to build a new life in light of the devastating news that her husband may not return. It was enjoyable to get a deeper glimpse at Sloane and her husband Adam’s life, and how they came to be together. As in the last book, there is a deeply buried family secret that Ansley fights to keep hidden. Throughout the book, she struggles with the battle within in her as she continues to deceive those she loves the most. Will the girls discover what their mom is determined to keep concealed? If it is discovered will it change the dynamic of their tight-knit family? I absolutely adored this story. It made me feel such a large range of emotions. At one point I literally had chills. It says a lot about a book when it causes a physical reaction in you, and this one did just that. I highly recommend this exquisitely written novel. I am confident that before long The Secret to Southern Charm will no longer be much of a secret! 5 sizzling southern stars! **Review by Amy, Late Night Reviewer for Up All Night with Books**
