I bought this one on a whim. I’d heard good things about it and people I respect said it was great. The blurb intrigued me, so I pre-ordered it a few weeks before it released, something I don’t typically do. Good thing Amazon tells me when I’ve already bought something, because I went to order it again a few days before it released, at yet another person’s recommendation.
I started it as soon as I opened the package and devoured it within a couple of days. It’s wonderful.
Amelia is an investigative reporter and she discovers the embryos her childhood friend Parker and his late wife had frozen are now considered abandoned. This sets off a chain of events that bring Amelia and Parker back home and also provides the key to unlocking secrets, some of them decades old.
Harvey writes about the south with authenticity as thick as Carolina humidity on a July afternoon. I could practically shake sand from the pages of my book. I loved it and am so glad I read it. It’s one that will stay with me a long time.
