    loved it!!

    There were a lot of amazing things about this book, but there was a major downer--I want the cupcakes mentioned or the recipes. The author had me drooling with some of the combos. Talk about major teasing. Where is this bakery? And if not Gimme Some Sugar than the model for the bakery. I see a road trip in my future. I WANT CAKE!! I WANT COOKIES!! I WANT THEM NOW!! For those of you that are like me and read everything "Molly Harper" then you are very familiar with Duffy. Can I just say it is about time that the man had real love and found his Happily Ever After. The long strange relationship with his ex-wife was just all kinds of wrong. For those of you that haven't read the rest of the series I must ask why in the world have you not picked up the books and laughed until your side hurts. After all that is what happens when you read a book by Molly Harper. I went crazy highlighting McCready wisdoms and smart comments that I plan to use on my children in the future. So here is what was so amazing, wonderful about this book. Second chance romance--Lucy and Duffy were best friends all through school. Small town romance--Lake Sackett is the epitome of small town, barely surviving after the lake was almost drained dry. A love that could not be denied--Lucy and Duffy fell in love in high school but were afraid to act on it until now. Romantic comedy--so many great laughs thanks to colorful characters. A long running series--I get to fall in love with the characters each and every time I pick up a book. Characters to despise--The author has to ability to create characters that I love to hate, that make me feel icky Leaves me wanting MORE!!!!! That is what makes it a 5 star read--I didn't want it to end. It is like sitting in the theater watching the credits roll hoping for another glimpse, a few more minutes of entertainment.

    The character building just keeps getting better!

    This is book six in the Southern Eclectic series, and this will be the third one that I’ve read. The other two, Sweet Tea & Sympathy and Ain’t She a Peach are full length, as is this one. The other three in the series are novellas. I really think this is a unique way to publish books in a series. People don’t have to wait as long in between books. And if there’s a character that you only have a little bit to write about, then put that character into one of the novellas. Whomever thought of this, either Molly Harper or someone on her book production team, is a genius. Since I’ve read two other books in the series, it should come as no surprise that I enjoyed this one too. I love books that take place in Georgia (I will travel there one day!), have lots of wacky characters, and have different sub-genres in romance. Gimme Some Sugar is a second chance romance. Lucy and Duffy knew each other in high school and were close to becoming more than just friends, but life got in the way. Lucky for them, years later, life got in the way again. Although I didn’t laugh as much as I did with Sweet Tea & Sympathy, this one still had amusing moments. And her character development, which was good to begin with, just keeps getting better. That is one of the best way to get readers to keep coming back to a series, and Harper is a master at this type of writing. She gives you characters that you are rooting for, as well as ones that are so nasty, you want to come back again to see just how insane they can get. And Harper definitely delivered the crazy nasty with Duffy’s ex-wife in this book. You don’t need to read these books in order, since Harper gives you enough backstory to understand what is going on. But as with any series, I do try to read them in order, since there are still little things that you pick up. Someday I would like to go back and read some of the novellas, but I know I will, for sure, be reading the next full length one.
