Lowcountry Stranger

There’s a stranger in town. And it’s no coincidence when she shows up uninvited at a Sweeney family wedding. All eyes are drawn to this urchin who seems to have washed in with the tide. Before the night is over, the doe-eyed waif charms young and old with her street smarts and spunky personality. For better or worse, Annie Dawn is here to stay.

The memorable Sweeney sisters from Her Sister’s Shoes have returned with more suspense and family drama to hold you spellbound until the dramatic conclusion. As she approaches the next stage of her life as an empty nester, Jackie is torn between expanding her fledgling design business and spending these last precious months with her boys before they fly the coop. Her own worst enemy, Sam is terrified of making a commitment to Eli Marshall, handsome police officer, true love of her life. Her resolve is tested when a ghost from her past shows up after nearly two decades. Faith nurtures her seven-year-old daughter who is recovering from the trauma of her abusive father. Is the threat in the past, or is there more danger on the horizon? The sisters seek guidance from their mother, Lovie, a true Southern matriarch who shows them how to respond to adversity with grace and dignity.

Things are heating up in the Lowcountry. The Sweeney sisters remind us, once again, that being a part of a family is about more than sharing the same DNA.

What Readers Are Saying About . . .
Lowcountry Stranger"My Sister’s Shoes was my first experience with Ms. Farley’s work and I was an instant fan, but she has now converted me to the level of total raving fangirl with Lowcountry Stranger."
DJ @Books and Bindings
Lowcountry Stranger"Drama can be anticipated when three sisters get together. But when that gathering is an outdoor family wedding and a young, uninvited stranger appears, expect emotions to escalate! The descriptive locale has me ready to pack my bags and head for the Lowcountry!"
TarHeelGirl00/Goodreads
Lowcountry Stranger"This family has a lot of drama in their lives but they all handle it well with the help of their friends and relatives. I sincerely hope that there are several more books to come."
Ann on Goodreads
Lowcountry Stranger"This is my first book by Ashley Farley, and I really loved the way she writes . There’s a strong family element of love, bonding, and loyalty between the sisters that truly fascinated me."

I love hearing from readers

Consistently at the top of Kindle and Audible bestseller lists for four years, Ashley Farley has built an impressive following in women's fiction for someone who was a “closet writer” until the moment she clicked publish on Amazon. Her self-published books are written about women and for women, with many of her fans being just like her—mothers with grown children who rarely find heroines of the same age depicted in women's fiction. Readers will discover something of themselves through her characters. Her novels promise a dash of romance and a heaping of Southern-style family drama.
