Audiobook Review: Gimme Some Sugar By Molly Harper

Gimme Some Sugar 
(Southern Eclectic #3)
By Molly Harper
Narrated byAmanda Ronconi

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?

Once again Molly Harper “writes characters you can’t help but fall in love with” (RT Book Reviews) in this charming and entertaining love story.

Viviana's Review:
OMG This series needs to be made into a movie and/or TV show!! Seriously!! Between the great mixture of humor and romance, you have a fantastic supporting cast of characters that literally make you want to move to Lake Sackett, GA and become friends with the entire McCready clan!!

I stayed up til 2AM to finish listening to this story because I wanted to know what came next! However, you end up also falling for the characters and you don't want it to end and you can't put it down!

I've been hoping that Duffy would get his own book! I was so happy to see glimpses of the potential story to come while listening to "A Few Pecans Short of a Pie (Southern Eclectic #2.5)" and when the blurb for "Gimme Some Sugar" was released... woohooo!!

GIMME SOME SUGAR is full of the great characters we've have come to love in Molly Harper's stories! Add a sprinkling of humor, a dash of sass and a great helping of wonderful storytelling and you have this delicious creation that is the Southern Electric Series. 

Oh... and some of the sayings!!! LOVE them!!! Need to start writing them down!!

I love Amanda Ronconi and her performance is great!!! I will say that GIMME SOME SUGAR would have been phenomenal if it was performed as a duet with a male narrator! Especially since Duffy has such a large part in this story! 

Overall, this series continues to rock and leaves you wanting more!! What would be even better? If this series was made into movies and/or tv series! Hey PassionFlix, I'm talking to you!!! 

Rating: 4.5 Stars - I REALLY LOVED IT
