The bestselling author and creator of Design Chic talks about her new book, THE SECRET TO SOUTHERN CHARM, part of the PEACHTREE BLUFF series. This book picks up where Slightly South of Simple leaves off, with four generations of the Murphy family living under one roof in the tiny coastal town of Peachtree Bluff, Georgia. The book begins where Sloan finds out that her husband, who is in the military, is missing in Iraq. She is in the depth of her despair. Her sisters and her mother help her to put the pieces back together.
The author, Kristy Woodson, endeavors to make sure each sister has a unique relationship with her other sisters and that they are each their own unique character. She is quite fascinated by how people can grow up in the same house with the same parents doing the same things, and they are completely different people. Her goal was to have the women of the story capture that atmosphere.
