Ain’t She a Peach by Molly Harper

There’s a new Sheriff in town.  He “thinks” he’s got everything under control until he meets the local coroner.  She’s purple haired goth chick who has her county business in the family funeral home slash bait shop.  She’s quick witted, smart and a handful.

I received an ARC or review copy of this book from the author/publisher. All opinions are my own.

Title:  Ain’t She A Peach
Author: Molly Harper
Series:  Southern Eclectic #4
Publish Date: June 12, 2018
Genre:  Contemporary Romance
Narrator:  Amanda Ronconi
Source: Audible.com

Publisher’s Description: 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.

Nervous Nellie’s nervousness necessitates knowledge of the novel. In other words …SPOILERS. *BEWARE*


Nervous Nellie says…

This is an incredibly fun story.  Eric is coming from the big city and sees murder in every death that happens in the small town.  He is running from a past that is haunting him and is the reason he had to come to the slower small town.  Frankie is the county medical examiner and she has quirks.  I think she was a quirky and fun character to read.

The McCready family is a hoot.  There are eccentric relatives and each one of them have qualities about them that make them individuals and incredibly likeable.  Just hearing the fact that they all are associated with the funeral home that also serves as a bait shop makes me laugh.  Only in a small town.  I like Molly Harper’s writing because of her humor and comedic influence.  Each character is individual and separate which makes all of them feel like a family to me for the short time I’m in their world.

There is a little sex, a wanna be burglar and a fun read.  I listened to this book out of series order, but the story is a standalone and though there may be back stories I missed, I could follow along just fine.  There is no cliff hanger and there is a HEA.  I just love Molly Harper and her imagination.  5 stars all the way.
