Lucy has moved back to her hometown after the death of her husband, Wayne. She just wants to raise her small son in place she knows. She decides to open a bake shop, even if some of Wayne’s family insist it is too soon after his death. They think she should just sit home and mourn. This is not Lucy’s style. Her marriage was a big mistake, but no one actually knows this. Enter Duffy, her best friend from high school. He also is part owner of McCready’s Bait Shop and Funeral Home. (Yes! You read that correctly!). Sparks soon start to fly between these two and then begins all the complications.
Duffy is magnetic! And Lucy is no slouch either. These two take a while to overcome some past issues…they were best friends in high school after all. When they finally decide to give their romance a whirl, it does not go off as smoothly as they had hoped. But don’t worry, that’s just part of the fun!
Molly Harper has the best southern characters. I swear! Everyone of these live in my hometown. She nails the characters, the southern ways and especially the southern charm.
If you need a quick, quirky, fun read, grab this one and go! I loved it!
