Ain't She A Peach by Molly Harper

3 Stars

Dear Molly Harper:

If you are looking for a little break from reality that doesn’t involve you spending time in either a straightjacket or a padded cell, her books might be right up your alley as well. The first in this series wasn’t a big hit for me because I thought the leading lady was kind of a twat twit, but Harper stepped it up a notch for this one and it earns an extra star. Heck, maybe it should earn even more, because any time you give me a leading lady who pretty much is described as looking like this . . . .

That somehow manages to not fall into the Manic Pixie Dreamgirl category, it’s kind of a miracle.

In addition, the leading male was the local sheriff so no matter how he was described there was only one man he was going to be for me . . . .

I looooooooove how the romance kind of takes a backburner to getting to know the family and townsfolk in this one. Especially when said characters are from the land of cotton, old times there are not forgotten, look away look away look away Dixie Land . . . . sorry, got off track for a minute there. But you know what I’m sayin’ – they’re all from a place where people say things like . . . .

And the whole time you’re reading it, you hear Shelby’s voice in your head. That’s a winner right there, kids.
