Not a Review, but a shout out. Kim writes great escapist novels and this looks sure to be another winner. A novel reminding you of the importance of family, friends and following your dreams.

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.
