An Atlanta ex-cop comes to sleepy Lake Sackett, Georgia, seeking peace and quiet--but he hasn't bargained on falling for Frankie, the cutest coroner he's ever met. Frankie McCready talks to dead people. Not like a ghost whisperer or anything--but it seems rude to embalm them and not at least say hello. Fortunately, at the McCready Family Funeral Home & Bait Shop, Frankie's eccentricities fit right in. Lake Sackett's embalmer and county coroner, Frankie's goth styling and passion for nerd culture mean she's not your typical Southern girl, but the McCreadys are hardly your typical Southern family. Led by Great-Aunt Tootie, the gambling, boozing, dog-collecting matriarch of the family, everyone looks out for one another--which usually means getting up in everyone else's business. Maybe that's why Frankie is so fascinated by new sheriff Eric Linden...a recent transplant from Atlanta, he sees a homicide in every hunting accident or boat crash, which seems a little paranoid for this sleepy tourist town. What's he so worried about? And what kind of cop can get a job with the Atlanta PD but can't stand to look at a dead body? Frankie has other questions that need answering first--namely, who's behind the recent break-in attempts at the funeral home, and how can she stop them? This one really does seem like a job for the sheriff--and as Frankie and Eric do their best Scooby-Doo impressions to catch their man, they get closer to spilling some secrets they thought were buried forever. With Ain't She a Peach, Molly Harper proves once again that she "never lets the reader down with her delightfully entertaining stories" (Single Titles).… (més)

Fun read. Molly Harper sure knows how to put the fun in funeral parlors. ( )

4.5 stars.

Ain’t She a Peach by Molly Harper is a light-hearted, humorous novel that is absolutely delightful. This second full length addition to the Southern Eclectic series can easily be read as a standalone but I highly recommend the previous installments as well.

Frankie McCready is a tad eccentric but so sassy and full of life it is easy to overlook her faults. She is twenty-eight but still lives with her over-protective parents and she is just tiny bit spoiled. Frankie is more than ready to move out on her own, but she just cannot quite force herself to have a conversation she knows will be difficult to navigate. Her profession as a mortician and coroner is unique and her habit of talking to her clients is unconventional yet endearing. Is Frankie up to the challenge of catching the sneaky vandal who is plaguing her while at the same maneuvering a tricky romantic entanglement with interim Sheriff Eric Linden?

Eric is a transplant from Atlanta who wants make his Sheriff position in Lake Sackett permanent. He left his last position in the Atlanta police department under a bit of a cloud so he takes his job very seriously. Eric and Frankie share an unexpected history that makes their inevitable encounters somewhat uncomfortable. Just as they begin to explore the chemistry between them, Frankie’s impulsivity creates a major headache for Eric.

Ain’t She a Peach by Molly Harper is a winsome novel with quirky characters, a lead protagonist who has some maturing to do and a male lead who needs to loosen up some. The combination of these elements results in a marvelously entertaining and incredibly heartwarming story. With plenty of down home charm and a slight romantic aspect, this newest addition to the Southern Eclectic series is sure to be a hit with readers who enjoy contemporary women’s fiction. ( )

Loved the first full book in the Southern Eclectic series, Sweet Tea and Sympathy. This series appears to have a novella, then a full book, novella, repeat, so Ain’t She a Peach is the second full book in this series. You don’t need to read the novellas, but I’m sure they would only enhance your enjoyment of the series.

In this book we get to know Frankie, Margot, and the rest of the cousins even more. Duff, the only male cousin, really amused me in this book, especially when he had to be included in a girl’s talk. We also get to know the Aunts and Uncles more, but there isn’t a lot with their grandma, who is a riot. Maybe they’ll be more of her in the next book in the series, Gimme Some Sugar.

The romance in this one was sexy and sassy. I had a small issue with their relationship in regards to some of the police procedurals. It’s a small town, and fiction, but the way the Sheriff, Eric, handled some of the situations with break-ins at the mortuary, was a bit far fetched for me. But it did not ruin the story.

I didn’t laugh as much as I did with Sweet Tea and Sympathy, but I still chuckled a couple of times, and loved the wackiness of the end funeral home scene. Another fun book in the series, and I’m looking forward to Gimme Some Sugar. ( )

Fun book. Frankie was one of my favorite characters from the first book Sweet Tea And Sympathy, so I was happy to see her get her own story. Frankie is the wild child of the family. She is impulsive, sassy, snarky, and sarcastic, but also loving and loyal to her family. A survivor of childhood leukemia, Frankie still lives at home with her very overprotective parents. She longs to break out on her own but doesn't want to hurt their feelings. When the pressure gets to be too much, she sneaks off to Atlanta for a "hit it and quit it" night with a random man. One of those encounters comes back to bite her when he shows up in Lake Sackett as the new interim sheriff.

Eric was a cop in Atlanta until a confrontation gone wrong sent him looking for a slower paced life and job. It takes him a while to adjust, and in the meantime, he sees foul play in almost every death. This brings him into frequent contact with town coroner and mortician Frankie, the woman he hasn't been able to forget.

I enjoyed the development of the relationship between Frankie and Eric. The chemistry between them is strong, though each tries to fight it. It was fun to see her jerk Eric's chain about his tendency to see murder in the most normal of deaths. The barbs and insults that fly between them highlight the emotion that both try to deny. Franke has to dial down the snark when she goes to Eric for help catching the vandal who has targeted the funeral home. Frankie is sure she knows who it is, but Eric believes in law and order and evidence. As they worked together to catch the culprit, they frequently clash over methods, but also grow closer emotionally. But when Frankie goes a little too far with one of her plans, it puts Eric's job in jeopardy and causes a rift between them. Harsh words were spoken, and though they hurt, they also created some serious self-reflection. I ached a bit for Frankie as she saw herself through new eyes, but I also cheered for her and the changes she made. I liked her big moment at the end as she and Eric realized that they belonged together.

As in the previous book, life in Lake Sackett is not dull. Small town life has everyone poking their noses in everyone else's lives, making some go to extreme lengths to get a little privacy. Small town politics also invade every facet of life, from the PTA to the town government. Frankie and her cousin Margot got yet another taste of this when it came time to plan the annual Trunk-or-Treat for Halloween. The planning session was a riot, from deciding on the venue to arguments over costumes allowed. I loved seeing Margot maintain control and give as good as she gets in the process. The other big story is the case of the vandalism at the funeral home. Since Frankie is confident who is behind it, she is ready to have it out with him, but Eric reminds her that without solid evidence, he can't do anything about it. I could feel Frankie's frustration, especially when one attempt goes so badly wrong. I loved that she learned her lesson, and when the opportunity came to set a trap, she was extremely clever about it. I loved how it played out and seeing the punk get what was coming to him. There was also a nice little twist that had a connection to Eric.

I enjoyed seeing more of Frankie's family members. Aunt Tootie is always a hoot with her abundance of rescue dogs and her unfiltered commentary on everything. I liked catching up on what is happening with Margot and Kyle, especially the surprise that Margot is facing. I'm looking forward to seeing how that works out. I saw more of the relationship between Frankie and her parents and completely understood her frustration. Their overprotectiveness was definitely over the top, though it was also understandable. It was difficult for her to break away without feeling guilty about hurting their feelings. Their confrontation over the issue was emotional but productive. ( )

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. She is just polite, they don't answer back or anything.
