The Heart of Madison Series
Left on Main
Libby Reynolds is having to reboot her entire life after a sudden divorce and relocation. Seth Carver has let work become his whole life, turning into the kind of anachronism surrounding him in his antique store. Though drawn together, can their love withstand a visit from the past she's left behind? Left on Main is the story of a charming Southern town and the woman who decides to make it her home. Left on Main is the first in the Heart of Madison series.
Right on Walton
Lindy Carver can really get behind the idea that the future is female. After all, she's taking family planning into her own hands as she approaches 40 with no relationship in sight. A passionate artist and fierce feminist, Lindy knows that she's capable of creating exactly the life she wants, even if she has to do it alone. Dean Walton has elevated casual dating to an art form, having escaped a dysfunctional childhood with no intention of repeating those patterns in his future. He's known Lindy forever, but lately, tension has grown between them that has nothing to do with annoyance. As their relationship heats up, their careful plans go sideways, and Dean's reputation may just come back to haunt them. Right on Walton is the second book in the Heart of Madison series.
Crystal Jackson guides you right into the heart of Madison, Georgia, in her debut novel Left on Main where we meet a cast of endearing and quirky characters. Her brilliant and lively narrative weaves you directly into the threads of this timeless tale. By the book's end, I felt inspired and hopeful with a true belief in the power of community, friends, and visceral love.

Crystal Jackson is a prolific writer who is able to capture many of life's issues in an honest, engaging, charismatic manner. Her upcoming book Left on Main is reminiscent of a young Maeve Binchy. Truly a delight to read.

Crystal Jackson has created a town of well-developed, lovable people that reminded me of Stars Hollow from The Gilmore Girls.
