    Last year Sweet Tea and Sympathy was one of my favorite reads, it had all of the elements I need in fun women’s fiction so I’ve been dying to read the second book in Harper’s Southern Eclectic series for months. The wait was well worth it, the second installment was just as witty and charming as the first and I really hope Harper continues to write about the kooky residents of Lake Sackett for a long time.

    Last year Sweet Tea and Sympathy was one of my favorite reads, it had all of the elements I need in fun women’s fiction so I’ve been dying to read the second book in Harper’s Southern Eclectic series for months. The wait was well worth it, the second installment was just as witty and charming as the first and I really hope Harper continues to write about the kooky residents of Lake Sackett for a long time.

    One of my favorite things about this series is the fun cast of characters and when I saw that this book would focus on Frankie I was delighted. She’s a quirky chick who doesn’t take crap from anyone and she’s also sarcastic, but charming when needed, a combination that always works well for me. Her budding relationship with Eric was not only adorable, it wasn’t formulaic or predictable. You also get to catch up with the characters from the first book and seeing what Margot was up to was just delightful.

    This was a strong follow up to a hilarious series, the ultimate pick me up that I read at just the right time. You can’t read this without smiling, it’s got sassy southern charm by the bucketful and a little romance that will make you swoon, what more could a girl want?!

    Ain’t She a Peach in three words: Humorous, Sassy, and Cheeky.

    But she’s not the only one who has a crazy lifestyle. Many of her family members seem just a wee bit off. But that what is what makes the story so unique, humorous, and downright enjoyable.

    If you want to have fun while enjoying a good book, just pick up a Molly Harper read. There’s a reason why she’s a best-selling author. And there’s a reason why you can get addicted to her stories with just a few turns of the page.

    Witty, snarky, and a whole lot of Southern comfort is wrapped up in this sweet read. Not to be missed!

    This book series is such fun! I have so enjoyed reading this series and getting to know the whole McCready gang along with the inhabitants of Lake Sackett.

    This addition focuses mostly on the coroner and embalmer Frankie McCready. Having survived a bout of cancer when younger she has been mostly sheltered by her parents and never ventured out on her own or had a real relationship. That seems about to change when her one night stand and the new sheriff, Eric, comes to town. But something is odd wi

    This addition focuses mostly on the coroner and embalmer Frankie McCready. Having survived a bout of cancer when younger she has been mostly sheltered by her parents and never ventured out on her own or had a real relationship. That seems about to change when her one night stand and the new sheriff, Eric, comes to town. But something is odd with him and of course Frankie and her family can't just leave well enough alone. Not to mention someone keeps breaking into the funeral home and Frankie is bound and determined to find out who is behind it and put a stop to it.

    I was given an eARC by the publisher through NetGalley.

    I LOVED the first book in this series titled, "Sweet Tea and Sympathy", so I went into this one somewhat critically thinking, 'it's going to be good but can't be as good'. Some would call that pessimistic but I'd rather go into it with low expectations and be surprised, you know?

    Luckily, I love this one as well! In fact, I may have loved it equally to the first installment, if not more. Everything about this series speaks to my soul. It's Southern, it's humorous, it's realistic, and it's relata

    Luckily, I love this one as well! In fact, I may have loved it equally to the first installment, if not more. Everything about this series speaks to my soul. It's Southern, it's humorous, it's realistic, and it's relatable. Seriously, Frankie's story is so similar to my own that it's quite eerie.

    I definitely would recommend this one. My Mom even read this before me and she loved it as well. It's a quick, enjoyable read that is perfect for the summer but could also be read year round.

    I'm really hoping for more in this series and wonder who could be the next main character. My Mom suspects Duffy but I don't know. I certainly will be reading more from Molly Harper in the future, whether it be a continuation of this series or beyond that.

    Molly Harper's Southern Eclectic books are proving to be fast, fun and engaging books! Her characters are eclectic, fun, interesting and likable. Characters from the first book in this series (Sweet tea and Sympathy) are also in this book! This book does work very well as a standalone novel but I do encourage reading both books as they are fun, quirky and light. Perfect for when you need a change of pace, are in a reading slump or just want to read an entertaining book!

    Molly Harper's Southern Eclectic books are proving to be fast, fun and engaging books! Her characters are eclectic, fun, interesting and likable.

    Eric Linden is an ex-Atlanta police officer who has moved to Lake Sackett, Georgia to serve as the town Sheriff. He is hoping for a slower paced life and job. He is used to high rate crime and sees murder and foul play in most of his cases. He also learns that Frankie McCready, a woman he has a sort-of past with not only lives in the town, but is employed by McCready Family Funeral Home & Bait Shop as the town coroner and embalmer. Yes, you read correctly - a bait shop and a funeral home. I did warn that this book is quirky.

    Frankie McCready is an interesting person. She likes to color her hair interesting colors, has a sarcastic sense of humor and is the family baby. Due to the nature of her job, she and Eric have a lot of interactions which are a little awkward due to their sort-of history in the past. They share barbs and insults which make the dialogue fun and moves the story along.

    Frankie and Eric also must work together to determine who has been trying to break into the funeral home after hours. Frankie is determined that she knows the identity of the guilty party and Eric attempts to solve the crime while keeping Frankie from getting herself into trouble as she attempts to solve the crime.

    As I previously stated, Harper's books are quirky, light and fun! Perfect reads for those looking for something light and enjoyable. Her books are full of witty and fun characters such as Great-Aunt Tootie, the gambling, boozing, dog-collecting matriarch of the family! Her characters deal with real life issues but with a little dash of charisma, southern charm and sarcasm thrown into the mix. This book was well-written, and I read it in one day as I could not put it down. This is not an edge of your seat page turner, but it was so much fun and enjoyable that I could not resist and had to keep reading. I will be reading the next book in the series when it comes out!

    Thank you to Gallery, Threshold, Pocket Books and NetGalley who provided me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    When Eric took the job as Lake Sackett's interim sheriff he expected things to be a little quieter. He didn't count on Frankie, Lake Sackett's coroner and funeral director, and he didn't count on small town politics.

    Sometimes I dare to leave my safe place of crime and thriller novels and venture into the world of feel-good and romance. I actually do it gladly if the book's setting is in the American South. I just love small town stories, where everyone knows everyone and they drink sweet tea. I was sold when AIN'T SHE A PEACH was available to read and I read the blurb about a former Atlanta cop who moves to Lake Sackett, Georgia and falls for Frankie McCready, the cute coroner who talks to the dead.

    This is not up to the Molly Harper standard. I really liked Frankie as a character in the first book and was looking forward to getting to know her better and see what life was like from her perspective. Sadly, it doesn't seem like she's much more than surface when all is said. And I don't mean that Harper gave a surface characterization because that's not it. It's just that Frankie only has a surface maturity and there isn't a lot of depth to her personality beyond her job.

    And Eric is only a little better but he, too, has a lot of growing to do before he can make a credible romantic partner. Which is too bad because with as shallow as Frankie turned out to be the story really needed something stronger to anchor it.

    So this ends up being enjoyable enough that I don't regret reading it and I'm enough of a Harper fan that I'm willing to give any/all of them a shot and that will continue to be the case. In other words, I'm disappointed that this wasn't better, but not disillusioned because it wasn't actually bad.

    : We get a single explicit sex scene and the narrative pulls back really quick so this is on the lowest of low ends of my steam tolerance. Which makes it yet another aspect of the story that was a bit lightweight.

    Book two in the series and it was fun enough, but not mind-blowing. The focus was on the last girl's crazy cousin with rainbow hair. I approve heartily. I have unicorn hair myself and get comments everywhere I go. I also have a little bit of the crazy going on too. Her family's reaction when she wants to get a gun to scare off a vandal:

    Killjoys!

    I feel her pain, but I also live in Texas. Everyone's armed. Everyone.

    There's a reason these jokes exist.

    I just don't want to be left out.

    Our girl is named Frankie and she's a goth coroner. She's also quirky. I don't know, but a quirky goth coroner is a little on-the-nose for me. I would rather have a quirky, goth librarian, but okay. Her love interest is the new sheriff in town. They had previously met and had a one-night stand and he's a little bit angry that she didn't want to stay for pancakes the next morning, so he can be pretty prickly.

    And, that sentence alone is why I love the writing of Molly Harper. She always writes in ways that I can relate to. She uses the words that I think, like "dickheadery". It's like reading a book written by my snarky bestie, and I love that.

    The only thing lacking in this story was a little bit of excitement. In general, I felt like their romance was just "fine" and the conflict in the story was just "okay". It needed either something bigger in at least one of those areas, or, crazier antics going on. So, even though I enjoyed the writing, I just wished for more umph, ya know?

    twit, but Harper stepped it up a notch for this one and it earns an extra star. Heck, maybe it should earn even more, because any time you give me a leading lady who pretty much is described as looking like this . . . .

    That somehow manages to

    fall into the Manic Pixie Dreamgirl category, it’s kind of a miracle.

    In addition, the leading male was the local sheriff so no matter how he was described there was only one man he was going to be for me . . . .

    I looooooooove how the romance kind of takes a backburner to getting to know the family and townsfolk in this one. Especially when said characters are from the land of cotton, old times there are not forgotten, look away look away look away Dixie Land . . . . sorry, got off track for a minute there. But you know what I’m sayin’ – they’re all from a place where people say things like . . . .

    And the whole time you’re reading it, you hear Shelby’s voice in your head. That’s a winner right there, kids.
