Friday Finds: Beth Aldrich is an Amazon Best Seller; New Titles from Kay Dew Shostak and Heartsome Publishers

Happy Friday, dear reader. I hope you're gearing up for a great weekend! 

The dog days of August are impossibly hot, as is the girl power packed into this week's #FridayFinds. I think that a trip to the insidiously sleepy suburbs of Evanston, Illinois, the warm and friendly hollows of Chancey, Georgia, or the office intrigue of the City of London are just what the doctor ordered.

Southern women's fiction author Kay Dew Shostak is at it again. The latest installment of her Chancey Series -- about a suburban family that relocates to the Eudora Welt-ian environs of small-town Georgia -- was published this Tuesday.

From Amazon: "“A mother is only as happy as her unhappiest child,” they say. But is it true? What if your children are all miserable, Carolina wonders, but your life is finally coming together? It’s been almost a year since Carolina, her husband Jackson, and their three kids accidentally moved from her beloved Atlanta suburbs to a small town in the Georgia mountains, and Carolina hates small towns. But just as she’s adapting to running a B&B and living in Chancey, her kids are falling apart."
