"[An] emotionally stirring debut." -- Oprah Daily on A Lowcountry Bride

"A sweet and chaste romance featuring an ambitious wedding dress designer who takes a break from her intense career in New York City to return home to Charleston to care for her father--only to find love and her ideal career too." -- NPR on A Lowcountry Bride

With superb character development and great emotional depth, Afro Filipina writer Williams stitches together a quietly powerful love story that is beautifully enriched by the deft and insightful incorporation of weighty issues such as grief and medical conditions into the compelling plot and brightly enhanced by glimpses into the vibrant culture and history of Charleston. -- Booklist (starred review) on A Lowcountry Bride

"With this heartwarming tale, Williams has created a budding family that readers will root for." -- Publishers Weekly on A Lowcountry Bride

I absolutely adore this book. From the moment Maya appeared on the page, I couldn't stop reading about this determined, creative, plucky woman who quickly became real to me. Maya's love story begins slow--like a delicious low country boil--but heats up to the perfect ending. In the words of Williams's swoon worthy hero Derek, this book is divine! -- Kathleen Y'Barbo, bestselling author of The Black Midnight, on A Lowcountry Bride

Full of heart and faith, Preslaysa Williams's A Lowcountry Bride marries weddings, identity, second chances in all forms, and sweet romance into one lovely book. -- Tif Marcelo, USA Today bestselling author of The Key to Happily Ever After

Twenty twenty-first is bringing us the Black romances we deserve!
-- Essence

"Lush, detailed descriptions of the South Carolina Lowcountry... Perfect for fans of slow-burn second-chance romances" -- Library Journal

A triumph from start to finish. Williams has crafted a swoonworthy reunion romance that will have readers rooting for a happy ending. The gorgeous Charleston setting serves as a lush backdrop to the romantic arc between Marcus and Jaslene. I adore this book. -- Belle Calhoune, Publishers Weekly Bestselling Author
