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.

Enjoyable But...

I enjoyed following the story of the mom and three sisters. These are easy reads and have enough substance to keep you engaged throughout each book. I do wish the author wasn’t so focused on weight and appearance. There is a thread that follows all three books and each of the sisters and mom. It’s unnecessary and disappointing.

Enjoyed the series although a little drawn out.

This is the last in a trilogy about three sisters and their mother, a book for each sister. There is a lot of repetition in all three of the books and not a whole lot of "story", but I enjoyed the characters. The performance is excellent, I just wish there had been more to each sister's story.

Whines, “Southern Style”

I honestly could no wait for this book to be over. There was enough substance to keep me going but the females in this book are just annoying, whiny, needy, and overly dramatic. The mother came across as a nervous Nellie with extreme anxiety and a codependent relationship with her three annoying daughters. I just couldn’t stand it. I feel a little ignorant having listened to the whole thing.
