Book Description

August 5, 2014
June, 1947. Charleston is poised to celebrate the biggest wedding in high-society history, the joining of two of the oldest families in the city. Except the bride is nowhere to be found…Unlike the rest of the debs she grew up with, Vada Hadley doesn’t see marrying Justin McLeod as a blessing—she sees it as a life sentence. So when she finds herself one day away from a wedding she doesn’t want, she’s left with no choice but to run away from the future her parents have so carefully planned for her.

In Round O, South Carolina, Vada finds independence in the unexpected friendships she forms at the boarding house where she stays, and a quiet yet fulfilling courtship with the local diner owner, Frank Darling. For the first time in her life, she finally feels like she’s where she’s meant to be. But when her dear friend Darby hunts her down, needing help, Vada will have to confront the life she gave up—and decide where her heart truly belongs.

PALMETTO MOON by Kim Boykin is an interesting Southern Women’s Fiction set in 1940’s Round O, South Carolina. A Lowcountry novel. A tale with Southern charm, sweetness, and a sweet love story. If you enjoy Southern charm, the 1940’s in the South, than this is a tale for you to read. It is a sweet love story with twists and turns.

A well written story with engaging characters and a storyline that flows easily. An easy going read for a rainy fall day. The love scenes are sweet, the characters are endearing and the storyline is a bit predictable, but interesting. Well written, you can tell the author knows her southern fiction. An enjoyable read!
