The Peach Keeper

by Sarah Addison Allen

30-year-old Willa Jackson is not thrilled to be living in her hometown, Walls of Water, NC. But she has inherited her father's house, and her grandmother, Georgie, lives at the local nursing home. She'd rather forget the time she spent growing up here and start with a clean slate.

Paxton Osgood loves living in Walls of Water. She was born here, raised here, her folks stil live here--why would she ever leave? She has money, looks, pedigree, and she's even the president of the Women's Society Club. Her latest project is the restoration of the Blue Ridge Madam, a fancy inn in town. Interestingly enough, the BRM was built by Willa's great-great-grandfather during WOW's heyday.

The restoration of the Blue Ridge Madam has the potential to bring together Willa and Paxton, two very different women. Can they set aside their differences and insecurities to celebrate the resurrection of the Blue Ridge Madam? And, as with every novel by SAA, what sort of magic exists at or near the inn?

All will be revealed in SAA's usual fashion: light, heartfelt, and strangely magical. Lovely!
