Nicole Says… Read The Secret to Southern Charm by Kristy Woodson Harvey

By Nicole McManus



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 know this book doesn’t come out until April 3rd, but I wanted to give you all plenty of time to get caught up on Kristy Woodson Harvey’s work. March is my birthday month, so I wanted to share one of my favorite authors with all of you. Trust me; you do not want to miss out on this book! I read it in one day. The words and events spoke to my soul, I could even hear some of the conversations my Mom and I have had over the years. It is better than the first, and the ending will make you want to rip up the calendar, so you don’t have to wait a year to read the third book! Kristy Woodson Harvey will be in Pawleys Island on April 6th at the Moveable Feast. Her books are a delight to read, as her characters are extremely relatable. So pack your beach bags, because this is the perfect summer treat.
