    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...

    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'...

    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...

    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...
  • 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 ...

    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 ...

    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...
  • 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...
  • 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...
  • *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...

    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...
  • Leigh Kramer
    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...
  • 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...

  • Jennifer
    After reading Peachy Flippin' Keen, which was pretty much a long prologue for Ain't She a Peach, I couldn't wait to dig into more of Frankie and Eric. I liked the slow burn Frankie and Eric have in their HEA. The main focus is not on the romance but there's enough there to keep you waiting for the next time for them to be alone. They both have issues to deal with. Frankie from her childhood and overprotective parents and Eric from his mysterious ...

    In the continuation story of Frankie McCready from Peachy Flippin’ Keen, mortician Frankie is trying to grow up – and out- of her parent’s home. Unfortunately, her Bob and Leslie McCready still view their 28 year old daughter as the sick, leukemia-stricken child she’d been 2 decades ago and they don’t want her moving out, growing up, or becoming involved with any men – much to Frankie - and her raging hormones' - chagrin.Erin Linden i...

    Southern Eclectic is quickly becoming one of my favorite series. This is book 2 and a great follow up to Sweet Tea and Sympathy and novella, Peachy flippin' keen. It's original, how many books have you read with a Mortician as the lead character that has her office in the mortuary attached to the family bait shop? Lake Sackett is a delighful small town in the south that is a wonderful setting for the McCready Family Funeral Home & Bait Shop. Fran...

    When I picked this book up, I didn’t realize it was part of a series. It is a series of standalones, meaning you don’t technically need to read the previous books in the series to follow along with the subsequent books. However, I think it would have enhanced my reading experience if I had read the first book as well as the novellas before reading this one.AIN’T SHE A PEACH follows Frankie as she works as the country coroner and the embalme...

    I won this on Goodreads Giveaway. I thought it was a ghost story about a woman who talked to the dead. I should have read the description closer because no ghosts no vampires but a couple zombies did make a cameo.This was toast with peach jam.Too sweet for my taste.I was looking for an Anne Rice book but got Steel Magnolias. Instead of sitting in a beauty parlor putting makeup on Julia Roberts, Frankie spends her days putting makeup on dead peopl...

    Personal Manifest Observation: I enjoyed only the first and last chapter of Molly Harper’s Ain’t She a Peach. These bookend chapters contained discernible dialogue and improvement of character.As I gamboled through every chapter following Chapter One I became increasingly frustrated and annoyed. Main characters Frankie McCready and Sheriff Eric Linden contributed directly to this full-blooded combination of frustration and annoyance. The amou...

    Ain't She a Peach AKA No One Resolves Issues With Their Parents That Easily.Within a few pages of the book I got the sense that we were in a larger story and I was right. The cousins of the McCready clan each get a novel, but they make appearances throughout this one. Any Parks and Recreation fan out there? Remember how Leslie had that long running feud with Greg Pikitis? Well our main character Frankie gets Jared Lewis, a spoiled brat who will n...

    I received this book as a part of a goodreads giveaway. I read the other books in the series, and I was happy to continue to read about the McCready family. I have to say that I had liked Frankie as a character in the earlier books, but in this book I did not really care for her. We had learned about her health issues in the past, but it felt as if Frankie took carpe diem too far in her daily interactions. Yet at the same time she was unable to s...

    Ain't She a Peach... Small town Embalmer solves a mystery of a youth breaking into her family's funeral home. The characters are one-dimensional, lack clarity. I could not determine why the Vern Lewis family was so influential in the community. The events and stories that occurred in this book didn't flow. Woman reminisces about her cancer, tries to sabotage an attempted burglary/ vandalism effort, falls for local cop, participates in Trunk-or Tr...

    Frankie McCready is used to being seen as eccentric. As Lake Sackett's coroner it pretty much comes with the territory. Even though Frankie has a penchant for talking to the dead, she respects them, and she loves her job. That's why when someone keeps trying to break into the mortuary, she takes it personally. Frankie knows exactly who the perpetrator is, in fact she's been involved in a prank war of sorts with this particular individual for quit...
