Gimme Some Sugar
Summary: A young widow returns to Lake Sackett, Georgia to face the ghosts of her past—and decide if she’s ready to take another chance on love—in the third sparkling Southern Eclectic novel that “goes down as easy as honey on a deep-fried Twinkie” (Library Journal, on Sweet Tea and Sympathy).
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.
Traveling With T’s Thoughts:
What I liked:
Ok, we all know I LOVE the cover. Also, in all seriousness, I wish I could write everything in the font that Molly’s publishers use for her title. Seriously. I would graffiti all the buildings in my town if my writing looked THAT good.
The McCready family. They get better with each book. Bring on book 4 ASAP!!!!
How I feel while reading/after finishing a Molly Harper book- I’ve laughed and laughed and laughed. I’ve watched a family that is a bit on the kooky side stand up for one another, get in each other’s business, and ultimately love each other unconditionally. Did I mention I LAUGHED? If someone could bottle the way I feel after a Molly Harper book- well, they would make a million.
Bottom line: Molly’s series just gets better with each book- come out out and meet the McCready family of Lake Sackett, GA.
