Molly Harper brings her signature "clever humor, snark, silliness, and endearing protagonists" ( Booklist) to the charming small town of Lake Sackett, Georgia with the new Southern Eclectic series. Carl and Marianne were high school sweethearts, loving the way only teenagers can - with no thought to logic or pride, just a bone-headed, optimistic frenzy of unicorns and hormones.

This book was unclimatic, unfinished, and too expensive for only 3 hours of content. It has same characters but does not follow in sequence to the first book of the series. Do not waste your money and time.

Margot Cary has spent her life immersed in everything Lake Sackett is not. As an elite event planner, Margot's rubbed elbows with the cream of Chicago society and made elegance and glamour her business. She's riding high until one event goes tragically, spectacularly wrong.

Noah wants to go home. A seemingly easy request from most four-year-olds. But as Noah's single mother, Janie, knows, nothing with Noah is ever easy. One day the preschool office calls and says Janie needs to come in to talk about Noah, and no, not later, now - and life as she knows it stops. For Jerome Anderson, life as he knows it has stopped. A deadly diagnosis has made him realize he is approaching the end of his life.

I struggled to finish this due to the boring nature of it. I hope that someone else may find pleasure but my religious beliefs may be why I wasn't into it.

This book was great at unraveling an intertwined past and present. My husband and I both listened it it and enjoyed it. It kept your attention just enough to want to know more. There was some predictable parts that were not the main theme of the book.
