  • Debra
    3.5 starsMolly 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 w...

    3.5 STARSEvery now and then I seek out books that are lighter reads, ones that require no investment on my part but are entertaining and relaxing. Molly Harper's Southern Eclectic series feature books that fall precisely in that category. I still have to read the two novellas that fall between books #1-2, but the real reason I pick up these books is they make me laugh until I bust a gut. I was raised a Georgia peach, and I get a kick out of seein...

    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: "No," Bob said, shaking his head.Duffy added, "No, no. No guns. We will not arm you. No one wins in a situation...

    Such a humorous read! Love this one. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Frankie is a wild child and in this new book she is the star of the show. Well, along with newly appointed Sheriff Eric, a real hot number.Frankie is also a mortician, of sorts, and the county coroner AND has an eclectic lifestyle. Which makes any relationship, or non-relationship, difficult, shall we say.But she’s not the only one who has a crazy lifestyle. Many of her family memb...

    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. But with Frankie on his case to hunt down and arrest the local delinquent teen who has been waging a war on mortuary for years he quickly realises his quiet life was not to be. The Southern Eclectic series isn't easy to describe. It'...
  • Magdalena aka A Bookaholic Swede
    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 McCread...

    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 thi...
  • Jeri
    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 she...
  • Jacob Proffitt
    This is second in a series and that shows, I think. A lot of the family dynamics are laid out in better detail with the first book. Worse, though, is that this is functionally the second part of a story started in Peachy Flippin' Keen and I think that each separately they leave a lot to be desired. I have no idea why the story was split this way and I kind of resent it.This is not up to the Molly Harper standard. I really liked Frankie as a chara...
  • Brooke — brooklynnnnereads
    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 Southe...
  • Stacee
    I liked Frankie in the previous book I read in this series and was eager to see her get her story. Frankie is fun. She’s snarky and sarcastic and I love all of her fandom things. She’s super loyal and yet yearning to break out on her own. Eric is a good man and has strong convictions. And of course there’s loads of family members Plot wise it was just okay. This book didn’t seem to focus on the relationship of Frankie and Eric as much as ...
  • Heidi
    Three and a half stars: A quick, simple, fun read for when you need something light and hilarious. Frankie likes her life for the most part. She is the county coroner in the small town of Lake Sackett, Georgia. Her big problem is that at twenty eight years old, she is still treated like a child by her overprotective parents due to a bout of cancer when she was young. So when Frankie wants a good time, she heads to Atlanta. Then one day her good t...
  • Kyra Leseberg (Roots & Reads)
    Ain't She a Peach is a lighthearted story that takes readers back to the small town of Lake Sackett, Georgia. We return to McCready Family Funeral Home and Bait Shop (how's that for convenient one stop shopping?) and follow the story of Frankie, the 28 year old goth/nerd/Southern girl who works as the funeral home embalmer and county coroner. Frankie is trying her best to be an adult in a close knit family (read: everyone's up in each other's bus...

    I've enjoyed the time I've spent in the Southern Eclectic series getting to know the McCready family and following along as they sort out love, life, and family in their small southern lakeside town so I was glad to get Frankie's story.Ain't She a Peach is book two of the series and could work as a standalone in a pinch if the reader doesn't mind references to two of the cousins already getting their stories and getting a little follow up in the ...
  • Jane Stewart
    4 stars for the series. A nice escape - being in a small town for a while.This review is for all four books.I’ve read two Molly Harper books in the past and was not wowed enough to buy more. They were both told in 1st person. But when I saw this new series being told in 3rd person I thought I’d try it. And yes, I really enjoyed it. Why is it that I feel like I can relax and enjoy a 3rd person book, but 1st person seems stressful?The setting ...

    Thanks to Gallery Books for this free review copy!*Dare I say that I loved this book just as much or even MORE than the first one in this series? SWEET TEA & SYMPATHY was such a fun read, and this next one in the Southern Eclectic series picks right up where that one left off in the little Georgia town of Lake Sackett with the decidedly eccentric McCready family. This time with Frankie, the 20-something town's coroner and embalmer as the main cha...
  • Saly
    3.5 starsFirst off I really like Molly Harper books. I find her voice very different and her characters and setup eclectic to say the least. Before going into this book I knew it would be different because we had met Frankie in the previous book and she wasn't like the usual heroines. She works in her family's funeral home and embalms the dead bodies and speaks to them. Her parents like to cosset her because of her being sick as a child and she l...
  • Heather andrews
    The little novella that came out before this had me all intrigued about Eric and Frankie's story. Eric is not bashful at all, and he knows how to render his woman speechless, " he scrambled toward the ladder and leaped out of the water. Her laughter died on her lips as full-frontal Eric came into view..." Eric is willing to try anything to have his woman get frisky with him, “and maybe later, you can try on some of those costume options fo...

    I really enjoyed Sweet Tea & Sympathy and would still recommend you read that. Alas, I wanted so much more from Frankie’s story.Frankie was one of my favorite side characters in Sweet Tea and I was really looking forward to learning more about what made her tick, as well as getting the behind the scenes of her work as a coroner. I didn’t fully understand Frankie’s codependent relationship with her parents, although I could understand how it...

    Actual Rating: 4.5 StarsSee the full review at HarlequinJunkie.comMolly Harper is back in all her snarky glory with Ain’t She a Peach, her second laugh-out-loud full-length book in the Southern Eclectic series. With a quirky kickass heroine who happens to be a mortician, and a likable but buttoned up sheriff for a hero, how could this story be anything but fun, yeah?I’m really loving this new series. Talk about a blast to read! The offbeat ch...
  • SnoopyDoo's Book Reviews
    *I received a free copy from the publisher and chose to leave a voluntary review. Thank you!*  This book is part of the Southern Eclectic Series but can read as a standalone. But it helps to have read at least book one to get to know the family and town. I enjoyed book one in the series but at first was a bit overwhelmed with so many people in the family , plus the small town folks, but that was not the case for this book anymore since I knew m...
  • Terri ♥ (aka Mrs. Christian Grey)
    This book is just what the doctor order. A cute romance story. I will say the novella promised more than this book delivered, but I still enjoyed it.I thought the heavier topics were glossed over. If Frankie had gone through chemo, it’s very unlikely she’s fertile and can have children of her own. That wasn’t brought up. In fact, it was suggested that her fertility wouldn’t be an issue. That took me out of the story.I also thought her fam...
  • Christy
    This was cute. Like seriously cute. Not as much romance as I thought there would be but the characters totally made up for that. It was hilarious and adorable and I really need to read more by this author now.
  • *The Angry Reader*
    ***ARC received for an honest review***Frankie, her small town's mortician, is unique, mouthy and babied by her entire family. She also has history with the new sheriff in town - Eric. Eric is a little overwhelmed by the entire town and Frankie in particular. The two of them dance around one another - and Frankie makes some very Frankie-centered decisions. She was lovable and wonderful - and the end really brought her home to me. Molly Harper eff...
  • Cat C
    I received a copy of this in a Goodreads giveaway and it has not affected my review.This book is just as hilarious as SWEET TEA AND SYMPATHY, the first full-length book in this series. You don't necessarily need to have read the first one, since there is sufficient exposition, but Margot, the heroine of the previous book, does feature as a secondary character, so if you loved her story you get to see it continue.Frankie is a complicated character...
  • Linda
    I was so happy to get an advance copy of this book, I really enjoyed the first book in this series and I have enjoyed a lot of her other titles! Frankie McCready works at her family's funeral home, and she talks to dead people. Well, its only polite, after all. Frankie is a bit of a free spirit with colorful hair and clothes, but it is actually a smoke screen. A survivor of a childhood cancer, Frankie struggles with hypochondria and uses her colo...

    MY RATING: 4/5 STARS I received a copy from Simon Schuster Canada in exchange for a honest review.Ain't She a Peach is the second book in the Southern Eclectic series by Molly Harper and after reading the first small town story, Sweet Tea & Sympathy, featuring an abundance of wacky characters that require an actual character map for readers to keep track of, I knew I had to read the second one. Ain't She a Peach follows our favourite punk cousin,...

    Frankie is just a peach. Even though this is set in the fall, it's lighthearted and summer and totally fun.
