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 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.
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
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 background of Frankie's story. Ain't She a Peach i ...more
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 past as a cop in Atlanta.

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.

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 started. But it still seemed bizarre that she not o ...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
First 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 lets them even if it chafes her. She does like men ...more
