Publisher's Summary

Sexy school principal Kyle faces the biggest challenge of his career: getting his (pregnant) event planner girlfriend Margot down the aisle before the baby arrives!

Fans first fell in love with big city event planner Margot in the first Southern Eclectic novel, Sweet Tea and Sympathy, as she discovered a long-lost branch of her family - the McCreadys, of McCready's Bait Shop & Funeral Home. 

To Margot’s surprise, she's taken a liking to life in small-town Georgia...helped along by a romance with the hot elementary school principal. The two of them have been taking it slow - or they were until Margot gets pregnant. Kyle wants to make an honest woman of her, but Margot's still trying to proceed with caution. After all, she was the best event planner in Chicago before she ever came to Lake Sackett. Her wedding has to be perfect, and perfect includes not having the baby halfway down the aisle. 

With her trademark witty prose and warmhearted storytelling, Molly Harper’s newest glimpse of the McCready family will be perfect for fans of Christina Lauren and Amy E. Reichert.

Love this series but too short for the price!

I'm a BIG fan of Harper's Southern Eclectic series and Amanda Ronconi is the perfect narrator. It was great to revisit the family and check-in on Margo & Kyle but I wish I had just read this instead of purchasing the audiobook because $10+ for less than 3hrs - is A LOT for VERY little time when you're talking about fictional audiobooks. I understood this was a novella and also respect that audiobooks are appropriately more than their printed versions but I also think that the price should've reflected that more.

My only disappointment

Is that it was so short. I love molly Harper and Amanda Ronconi, I wait for the next release of whatever series. This ended so quickly that I wondered if I made a mistake using one of my audible credits instead of buying it outright. I still don’t know, but I do know I don’t like this trend of novellas that you won’t see on a bookstore shelf because it’s digital and it doesn’t matter. Again, love the author and narrator, but I’m disappointed because it’s already over and I just got it.

Boo boo

It just wasn’t long enough. I’m so pleased the quality held up. I must admit there was a lot less outrageousness in this episode.

I wanted to love it

But it’s just monotonous, the first 1.5 is just recap. And about how Margo throws up 70 times a day. Was probably 45 minutes of everything else. I love this series but this was not my favorite & just too short.

not my favorite

the story was a little lackluster and definitely not as funny as Molly Harper's last few bucks. I'm not sure if it's worth the cost.

certainly not worth the credit. specious and not even that funny. Most of her others were worth listening to, but this was so simplistic,, it was silly.

Sweet Read

NUMBER OF HEARTS: 5
I love when we get to go back and revisit characters and see how they are doing. A Few Pecans Short of a Pie gives us a update on how Kyle, Margot (bk 1 Sweet Tea and Sympathy) and the girls are all doing.
How Margot is dealing with small town politics about small town weddings, being pregnant, a step mom to two little girls. Of course Kyle is there with her ever step of the way being the amazingly sweet soon to be husband and dad.
I really enjoyed this novella of Kyle and Margot. And super excited for the next installment of the McCready clan. Bring on Duffy!!!

Wooohooo LOVED IT!!

Love it when authors give readers more! This novella is just that! More of Margot, the McCready clan and overall goodness that is THE SOUTHERN ECLECTIC Series!!

There are lots of laughs and moments of sweetness. Just plan fun overall!

This is a great continuation of Margot's & Kyle's story and a fantastic glimpse of the next book where Duffy is the hero!! Woohooo!

Great, but this isn't even 3 hours!

I love this story. I love every addition to the Southern Eclectic series. But I feel like this should be a bonus tacked on to the end of another book. Or at least offered at a significantly reduced price. The ebook is just over 100 pages, so we're nowhere close to a full novel. The Harper/Ronconi team is amazing, and I have been a fan for ages, but I wish the powers that be would give us a break on cost of these short stories between the main installments! *Rant over*

it was kind of pricey and very short.

it was kind of pricey to be so short. I was excited to read it after reading the first one but it was missing something
