is poised to celebrate the biggest
wedding in high-society history, the joining of two of the oldest families in
the city. Except the bride is nowhere to be found…Unlike the rest of the debs she grew up with, Vada Hadley doesn’t
see marrying Justin McLeod as a blessing—she sees it as a life sentence. So
when she finds herself one day away from a wedding she doesn’t want, she’s left
with no choice but to run away from the future her parents have so carefully
planned for her.
In Round O, South Carolina, Vada finds independence in the
unexpected friendships she forms at the boarding house where she stays, and a
quiet yet fulfilling courtship with the local diner owner, Frank Darling. For
the first time in her life, she finally feels like she’s where she’s meant to
be. But when her dear friend Darby hunts her down, needing help, Vada will have
to confront the life she gave up—and decide where her heart truly belongs. Charleston

This was a great novel about strong women and how they can and do survive. I was so glad that Vada followed her heart in this novel. This was a well written novel that kept my attention. I really liked all of the characters in this novel. The location of this novel was great also. A great read about the south.
I received a complimentary copy of this book for my honest review.
About the Author
Kim Boykin was raised in her
two girly sisters and great parents. She had a happy, boring childhood, which
sucks if you’re a writer because you have to create your own crazy. PLUS after
you’re published and you’re being interviewed, it’s very appealing when the
author actually lived in South Carolina or somewhere in the
general vicinity. Crazy
Almost everything she learned about writing, she learned from her grandpa, an oral storyteller, who was a master teacher of pacing and sensory detail. He held court under an old mimosa tree on the family farm, and people used to come from all around to hear him tell stories about growing up in rural
and share his unique take
on the world. Georgia
As a stay-at-home mom, Kim started writing, grabbing snip-its of time in the car rider line or on the bleachers at swim practice. After her kids left the nest, she started submitting her work, sold her first novel at 53, and has been writing like crazy ever since.
Thanks to the lessons she learned under that mimosa tree, her books are well reviewed and, according to RT Book Reviews, feel like they’re being told across a kitchen table. She is the author of The Wisdom of Hair from
Steal Me, Cowboy and Sweet Home Berkley
from Tule, and Palmetto Moon,
also from Carolina
Berkley 8/5/14. While her
heart is always in the Lowcountry of South Carolina, she lives in and has a heart
for hairstylist, librarians, and book junkies like herself. Charlotte
