Publisher's Summary

From internationally best-selling author and “rising star of Southern fiction” (Mary Alice Monroe, New York Times best-selling author) Kristy Woodson Harvey comes the third novel in her Peachtree Bluff series, in which a secret threatens the tight-knit bond between a trio of sisters and their mother.

With the man of her dreams back in her life and all three of her daughters happy, Ansley Murphy should be content. But she can’t help but feel like it’s all a little too good to be true. 

Meanwhile, youngest daughter and actress Emerson, who is recently engaged and has just landed the role of a lifetime, seemingly has the world by the tail. Only, something she can’t quite put her finger on is worrying her - and it has nothing to do with her recent health scare. 

When two new women arrive in Peachtree Bluff - one who has the potential to wreck Ansley’s happiness and one who could tear Emerson’s world apart - everything is put in perspective. And after secrets that were never meant to be told come to light, the powerful bond between the Murphy sisters and their mother comes crumbling down, testing their devotion to each other and forcing them to evaluate the meaning of family. 

With Kristy Woodson Harvey’s signature charm, wit, and heart, The Southern Side of Paradise is another masterful Peachtree Bluff novel that proves she is a “Southern writer with staying power” (Booklist).

Not for me...

I really tried to like this book, but I found myself rolling my eyes the whole time that I just couldn't finish. If you are into chick-lit you will love this series, but it was a no for me.

Sappy

Enjoyed book 1 but as I progressed through 2 & 3 I got less and less interested. Pretty predictable but probably would make a good hallmark movie. Janet Metzger narration kept me listening. 5 stars for her.

Narrators

The narrator for Emerson is wonderful! Her voice is soothing and pulls the listener into Emerson’s story. However, the narrator for Ainsley was difficult to focus on for the story. There is a harsh quality to the tone with no variations on the other characters in these chapters.

Good series

Of the three sisters, I found Emerson a little annoying. Her reaction to Jack being the father of Caroline and Sloan a little over the top and her treatment of Ansley disgusting. I hope if I were ever in that position I would react less self centered. Her total inability to face her life struggles head on was a little hard to take.
Jack was certainly the most patient of men when dealing with Ansley. Ansley finally recognized that her future was with Jack.
That being said, I really enjoyed this series and found the narrators to be exceptional. I really appreciated that a different narrator was used for each book/sister.
