An Atlanta ex-cop comes to sleepy Lake Sackett, Georgia, seeking peace and quietbut he hasnt bargained on falling for Frankie, the cutest coroner hes ever met.Frankie McCready talks to dead people. Not like a ghost whisperer or anythingbut it seems rude to embalm them and not at least say hello.Fortunately, at the McCready Family Funeral Home & Bait Shop, Frankies eccentricities fit right in. Lake Sacketts embalmer and county coroner, Frankies goth styling and passion for nerd culture mean shes 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 anotherwhich usually means getting up in everyone elses business.Maybe thats 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. Whats he so worried about? And what kind of cop can get a job with the Atlanta PD but cant stand to look at a dead body?Frankie has other questions that need answering firstnamely, whos 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 sheriffand 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....

Ain't She a Peach? (Southern Eclectic #2) Reviews
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 character in the first book and was looking forward to ...more
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 ...more

Molly 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 characters, the Scooby-Doo type plots, and in this case, ...more
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 business) while still living at home with her parents ...more
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 th ...more
***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 effervesces. Funny, charming, larger-than-life southe ...more
Frankie is just a peach. Even though this is set in the fall, it's lighthearted and summer and totally fun.
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's closer to Women's Fiction than Romance but with ...more
