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 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 sheriff, Eric, comes to town. But something is odd wi ...more
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
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, sometimes easy to root for, sometimes difficult ...more
Picking up where the prelude novella, Peachy Flippin’ Keen, left off, we meet back up with Lake Sackett’s embalmer and county coroner, Frankie McCready. As Halloween approaches, the juvenile pranks on her family’s funeral home and bait shop intensify. Frankie is certain it’s the doings of her teenaged nemesis, and the new sheriff, Eric, is the first law enforcement officer to take her concerns seriously, it’s just too bad she and Eric don’t see eye-to-eye on much else. However, as the pair spend ...more

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 most of them by now. I really like that these book...more
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 colorful style as a distraction. Eric Linden the inter ...more
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 it presented a slice of time and in some scenes, it felt l ...more
