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).

AIN’T SHE A PEACH by @mollyharperauth @GalleryBooks should be on your Summer TBR! It is quirky and full of humor… throw in a few dead bodies and you have the perfect beach read! #ASouthernEclecticNovel 


Lake Sackett, Georgia… where the peaches are ripe, the tea is sweet, and the families are crazy… and by crazy I mean Ah-Mazing! If you haven’t fallen in love with this series yet, then you are missing out! Ain’t She A Peach is the second installment in the Southern Eclectic series by Molly Harper. It centers around Frankie McCready, the town coroner, and the hot new sheriff in town, Eric Linden. Their story is funny, quirky, and really quite charming. It’s hard not to fall in love with both of them and yet want to smack them upside the head at the same time. LOL!

From the get go, the sparks fly between Frankie and Eric. It was easy for me to get on board with their budding relationship. A sheriff who gets a bit woozy around dead bodies and a coroner who still talks to said bodies sweetly and with care is bound to be good read. Without giving anything away, know that Ain’t She a Peach is worth checking out. You’ll be rooting for Frankie and Eric, you’ll be laughing with the McCready clan, and you’ll be swooning by the end. A quick, entertaining read that is perfect to throw in your beach bag this summer!
