Reviews

"Pawleys Island is imbued with a vivid sense of place that is so appealing that readers may want to pack up the book and head to the Carolina coast."--The Boston Globe "A sexy, funny, and quirky page-turner."--The Columbus Dispatch "[A] funny-to-the-bone Southern novel...Incredibly entertaining."--The State (Columbia, SC) "A great summer read as could only be written by a Southern belle."--The Sunday Oklahoman "An endearing look at hope and friendship...Take it to the beach."--The Tennessean "The book is humorous, the customs are generations old, the characters are ones the reader wants to be around, and the locale fits them perfectly."--The Charlotte Observer "Frank's absorbing narrative manages to feel both authentically Southern and universally empathetic."--Publishers Weekly "Compulsively readable...Will appeal to fans of both Fannie Flagg and Larry McMurtry's Terms of Endearment. A true southern comfort."--Booklist
