The lowdown from for Slightly South of Simple by Kristy Woodson Harvey Goodreads

Publication Date April 25, 2017

Welcome to Peachtree Bluff

Truthfully, I love starting a new series. It’s like meeting a new friend. I want to take things slow. Let’s not lay everything out on the table immediately, okay? I don’t want to know all your secrets as soon as we meet. Slowly but surely, I want to get to know you & see if this is a fruitful friendship for us both.

Well, the verdict is in on the sisters of Peachtree Bluff. I want to be friends with this family! Kristy does such a great job introducing us to all the characters. After reading, I feel like I have a good handle on everyone, but there is plenty more for me to learn. Undoubtedly, Caroline shines the brightest in Slightly South of Simple. But, I love Sloane, Emerson & Ansley too. I can’t wait to read Books 2 & 3 in the Peachtree Bluff series.

Southern Fiction at is best with Slightly South of Simple by Kristy Woodson Harvey

I am from the South, so why the heck do I not read more Southern Fiction? I’m so grateful to my friend Tamara for putting Kristy Woodson Harvey on my radar. Kristy is able to tap into so many different emotions in her writing. She alternates the narrator throughout the book, which lends itself very well to the narrative. While reading Slightly South of Simple I laughed, smiled, teared up & my heart swelled. I cannot wait to read more of Kristy’s writing.

Can I move to Peachtree Bluff? I’m getting serious Stars Hollow vibes. I love the interaction with the nosy neighbor, all the parades & meeting the residents of the town. It’s just so perfect & I can’t wait to return.
