Publisher Description

Welcome to Crickley Creek, where dreams are encouraged—as long as they fit within the proper rules of etiquette.

Sweet Charlotte Sinclair has no idea that "bless your heart" is the same as "screw you"—and she’s about to find out the hard way. After her mother’s death, Charlotte moved from free-wheeling California to her mother’s tiny hometown in the Lowcountry of South Carolina, longing to feel closer to her and searching for closure.

Charlotte loves her status as a popular coffee shop owner and is enjoying her budding romance with local hero Will Rushton more than she’d like to admit. So why is she still struggling to find acceptance within the Crickley Creek community? There’s a secret nestled among the plantation homes and Spanish moss-covered oaks—a truth her mother’s arch rival will do anything to hide.

And if Charlotte doesn’t learn how to overcome the damage some well-placed gossip can do to her reputation, she might lose everything, including her rose-colored memories of her mother. But is it possible for an outsider to belong in the deep South and still remain true to her own roots?

Great read!

The residents of Crickley Creek are a diverse group. Thanks to all the dialogue in this book (and Southerners do love to talk!) you really get to know the characters and I'm sure will be able to associate each unique personality to someone you know. The author's succinct descriptions not only enable you to picture the settings, but transport you there...experiencing the embarrassments, smelling the aromas, watching the sunsets, and burying your toes in the sand. This book takes you through a range of emotions from laughter (those bizarre Southern expressions) to tears (touching family experiences we all have). The many twists and turns in this novel (some predictable, most not) make it hard to put down. I am looking forward to my return visit to Crickley Creek this summer when the next book in the series is released.
I read an Advanced Reader Copy of this book. All opinions are my own.

Characters with heart...takes your breath away

The Firefly Jar, the first in the Crickley Creek series by Laurie Beach, will take your breath away with its beauty and simplicity. With the gorgeous backdrop of South Carolina’s Lowcountry, you are immersed in generations of tradition, families new and new, old love lost, and a slow-brewing new love that is tender and heartwarming.

Ms. Beach has crafted characters with heart who reach into your imagination and leave you with a piece of their souls. The story is emotionally moving and whets your appetite for more from the slow-paced Southern country life of Crickley Creek.

This ARC was complimentary and provided by the Publisher. I am voluntarily submitting my honest review.
