Kristy Woodson Harvey is the New York Times bestselling author of nine novels, including The Wedding Veil and The Peachtree Bluff series, which is in development for television with NBC. Kristy loves connecting with fans on KristyWoodsonHarvey.com. She lives on the North Carolina coast with her husband and son where she is (always!) working on her next novel.
Summer is my favorite season. I live on the coast, which is lovely all year, but when Memorial Day hits, I grab my beach bag and fill it to the brim with sunscreen and more books than I could ever possibly read in one sitting! As a beach lover, I couldn’t help but partially set my new novel, THE WEDDING VEIL, not only on a North Carolina beach but also on the sandy shores of the British Virgin Islands. And, for mountain lovers, this novel about Edith and Cornelia Vanderbilt and their home, Biltmore Estate, is full of crisp mountain breezes, too. No matter what your favorite summer escape entails, there’s a book on this list that fits the bill. From the Hamptons to Savannah, the Greenbrier to Utah, Nantucket and everywhere in between, there’s no end to the places you can travel through the pages of seven of my favorite summer novels. Happy reading!
