Publisher's Summary

Lucy Brewer would never have guessed that her best friend, Duffy McCready (of McCready’s Bait Shop & Funeral Home) has been in love with her since they were kids. Fear of rejection and his own romantic complications prevented Duffy from confessing his true feelings in high school, so he stood by and watched her wed Wayne Bowman right after high school. Wayne had always been a cheapskate, so it comes as no surprise when he suffers a fatal accident while fixing his own truck. 

Even as her family and friends invade Lucy’s life and insist that the new widow is too fragile to do much beyond weeping, Lucy is ashamed to admit that life without Wayne is easier, less complicated. After all, no one knew what a relentless, soul-grinding trudge marriage to Wayne had been. Only Duffy can tell she’s hiding something. 

In need of a fresh start, Lucy asks Duffy to put his cabinet-building skills to use, transforming the town's meat shop into a bake shop. As the bakery takes shape, Lucy and Duffy discover the spark that pulled them together so many years ago. Could this finally be the second chance he’s always hoped for? 

Once again Molly Harper “writes characters you can’t help but fall in love with” (RT Book Reviews) in this charming and entertaining love story.

Entertaining

This is a fun listen. Amanda Ronconi does an excellent narration. This story has a bit of bite, which makes the story a good listen. I do wish I had skipped the “Pecan” short and gone straight to this book. Fun listen.

What's with the f***ing f-bombs?

I love Molly Harper's books paired with Amanda Ronconi's narration. But there seems to be more f-bombs in this book than previous books. I'm not a prude, but I enjoy books and stories without them. I hope it does not become a regular addition in future titles.

I had a hard time liking this heroine.

I love Molly Harper and Amanda Ronconi, but I had a really hard time liking this heroine. She was just so prickly and standoffish and I thought she was overreacting to much of what she was being prickly with (part of that was because the reasons for her standing back from some people weren't given until too far in the book so it seemed like overreaction). I listened a second time and felt the same way. Not one of my favorites from Molly Harper. Still looking forward to more from her, though.

Good, but not great.

Good book, staying close to the series. I didn't love the main character Lucy. I feel she just wasn't that likeable. I love this series enough though so that didn't ruin the book for me.

great addition to the series

As a long time fan of Molly's work, this addition to the Southern Eclectic Series doesn't disappoint. The book is full of Molly's signature humor and snark. And you just can't go wrong with Amanda Ronconi's narration!

Good, but a bit lazy.

I love Molly Harper's books. they always makes me happy. However, I think it is a bit lazy to use the exact same scenes from the former short-story in this one. It feels very much like she just needed it to be longer and did not bother to write a few new scenes instead. And sometimes it felt like she came a bit to close the The Cupcake club series by Donna Kauffman. But other than that it is a very fun book.

Duffy's story!!!

NUMBER OF HEARTS: 5
Lucy has moves to her hometown to grieve the lost of her husband and to raise her son in a familiar place and to pursue her dream of opening a bakery. But like any good small town Lucy will have to learn to deal with the gossip and a nosey and bossy mother in law.
Duffy McCready has always loved Lucy. She was his best friend growing up. But time, distance and both of them marrying the wrong people put a kink in their friendship. But now that Lucy is back Duffy will not let anyone or anything wreck their friendship again. Well except maybe himself.

As always I had the talented Amanda Ronconi read this story to me. I truly love having Amanda narrator Molly’s books. She is able to bring these characters to life for me. So much so that when I read any of Molly’s books I can hear Amanda’s voices in my head. I

YAY!!!! Duffy McCready finally got his own book!! I am so glad that Duffy finally got his book. I adore his lady love, Lucy! Lucy is a spit fire that give Duffy a run for his money.
I really enjoyed this last book of the Southern Eclectic series. It has been a fun ride learning about the McCready family. I can’t wait for the next book written by Molly and narrated by Amanda.
