The Peach Keeper

The Peach Keeper, by Sarah Addison Allen, has just been released in paperback!
I am honoured to have won a special The Peach Keeper "Box of Summer"!

To celebrate, I am re-printing my review of her wonderful book.
The Peach Keeper
The Peach Keeper: A Novel

By Sarah Addison Allen

The Peach Keeper has it all. In this book there is romance, friendship, family, and Southern charm, all mixed with a touch of magic.

In the town of Walls of Water, North Carolina, unlikely former high school classmates are brought together by the renovation of a local historical mansion. It is this mansion that ties the unlikely families together throughout history. As they struggle with this history, and their own problems, a real mystery is literally uncovered with the renovation. This forces them to look beyond what they thought they knew: at their families, each other, and ultimately themselves. They must solve this mystery for everyone to be able to move on.

Sarah Addison Allen’s books are always a treat. I already look forward to her next book, and every one of her books.


  1. Who doesn't like a little magic in their lives? Sounds like a good one!

  2. Congrats on the win. I look forward to her new book too.

  3. Dear McGuffy Ann,
    Thanks for the review. I went to the library website and saw that she's written a number of books. So I'll start with one book and see there that goes!
