Book Review: "Lowcountry on My Mind" by Ashley Farley

Lowcountry on My Mind is Ashley Farley's newest novel, and it's about two old friends who both experience immense challenges in this story of family secrets, friendship, love, and fresh starts.

Amelia has been the perfect wife her abusive husband has demanded for far too long, and she’s had to sacrifice many things, including a closer relationship with her mother. But when her mother dies unexpectedly, she flees to her childhood home on Palmetto Island to make a new start. She won’t let her husband call the shots this time—no matter what it takes.

Being home in the lowcountry is revitalizing, as she gets to reunite with her two best friends from childhood. But as she reflects on what she lost through her marriage and she readies for her husband to find her, she has to deal with an unexpected visitor from her past.

Meanwhile, her friend Max has her own set of crises. Anxious about the renovations her hotel sorely needs, she’s waiting for her loan to be approved by the bank. At the same time, she’s realizing that the impulsive relationship she fell into isn’t all it’s cracked up to be, but her boyfriend isn’t interested in ending things. And trying to get rid of him might prove more costly than she realizes.

Both women will need all of their strength to overcome some of their greatest battles. They are both facing dangerous enemies with the potential of destroying everything, but will the support of friends new and old be what they need?

Through participating in Kate Rock Book Tours, I’ve had the opportunity to read a number of books by Farley, and I’ve loved every single one. I devour all of her books and I wish I could be where her books are set!! She has such a talent for storytelling and creating gorgeous, gorgeous imagery.

Lowcountry on My Mind is the third book in her Palmetto Island series and it’s another winner. (You could read each as a standalone, but it probably would be better to start at the beginning of the series.) I sat down to start the book and the next thing I knew, I was finished. She writes such great stories.

Thanks to Kate Rock Book Tours and Ashley Farley for a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for an unbiased review!
