Gimme Some Sugar by Molly Harper
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?
This was the first book I have read by Molly Harper and I loved it! This was a great “feel good” story that I devoured in just ONE DAY! Being from south Georgia, I easily fell in love with all the characters in this book, as well as the town of Lake Sackett. This book took me back to small town living 100%. Everything about this book from the plot to the towns people was so relatable. All the characters had great chemistry. I even loved the villains because well….. BEEN THERE! Haha.
Honestly…. This book gave me a major craving for some fried green tomatoes with some pimento cheese spread and an urge to crawl up with the rest of the McCready family in Molly Harper’s other books.
