Ok, Southern author. Faulkner, Welty, Lee - well sure. But I'll go with one I've discovered in the past year - Mary Kay Andrews. I'm not even sure if she's "from" the South but her books all take place there (at least the ones I've read). I loved The Fixer Upper and then, later in the year, I read Savannah Blues and Blue Christmas.
"CeeCee Honeycut" is on my tbr list. I've heard wonderful things about it.

I just added this to my tbr, so I'd love to win it!

My favorite Southern book is Fair and Tender Ladies by Lee Smith. Her books take place in the southern Appalachians, where I'm from, and this book captured us, our accents, and just people everywhere perfectly. I can't recommend it enough.

Garden Spells by Sarah Addison Allen is one of mmy favorites. I think that is the first book I read that had a little fantasy element in it and I discovered how much I liked it. The NC setting was well done. CeeCee has had some wonderful reviews and I'd really like to read it.
Have a happy, healthy and joyous new year.

My favorite southern author is Michelle Sutton. I hope that counts. I can't choose just one book.

Dorothea Benton Frank is my favorite Southern author. She captures the South Carolina low country perfectly, and weaves in great stories and family sagas.

Thanks for the chance to win CeeCee! I've read many good things about it.

Hi Jill! I stopped by to wish you a Happy New Year and was happy to find your giveaway! How nice!

Since I have so many southern novels I love, I'm picking one that I read this year. It is The Help by Kathryn Stockett. It was simply a great story with fantastic characters!
