Goodreads:  Dear Carolina was praised as “Southern fiction at its best.”* Now author Kristy Woodson Harvey presents a new novel about what it really means to tell the truth . . .

After sixty years of marriage and five daughters, Lynn “Lovey” White knows that all of us, from time to time, need to use our little white lies.

Her granddaughter, Annabelle, on the other hand, is as truthful as they come. She always does the right thing—that is, until she dumps her hedge fund manager fiancé and marries a musician she has known for three days. After all, her grandparents, who fell in love at first sight, have shared a lifetime of happiness, even through her grandfather’s declining health.

But when Annabelle’s world starts to collapse around her, she discovers that nothing about her picture-perfect family is as it seems. And Lovey has to decide whether one more lie will make or break the ones she loves . . .

Ope’s Opinion:  When I started reading this book, I felt like I was sitting with an old friend telling me her story.  The book kept calling me back to spend time with that friend.  As I continued to read I was totally surprised by the twists and turns.   This wonderful story drew me and kept me coming back for more.

The ending was perfect – it tied things up and let you know where everyone is now.

I am looking forward to Kristy Woodson Harvey’s next book!

Rating: 5 – This book is so good it will be passed on and on and on….
