This weeks theme:
14th June – “Coraline opened the box of chocolates. The dog looked at them longingly.” – A cover featuring something sweet
The first book that came to mind was When Dimple Met Rishi but I haven’t read it yet and it’s such a popular book I don’t want to risk it already being taken. You know the book with the East Indian-American girl drinking an Iced coffee/drink? sweet right?
Then, I searched my list of books and the Southern Eclectic series by Molly Harper popped up. I really like Molly Harper as an author so out of all her book titles, I picked Sweet Tea and Sympathy. There is another title with a sweet cake on the cover called Give Me Some Sugar, but it didn’t have different covers to choose from.
Sweet Tea and Sympathy
(Southern Eclectic #1)
by Molly Harper
From beloved romance author Molly Harper (Half-Moon Hollow and The Nice Girls series) comes the first title in her new rom-com women’s fiction series, Southern Eclectic, which features the lives, losses and loves of the McCready family as they manage their family’s generational funeral home and bait shop (you read that correctly) on the shore of picturesque Lake Sackett, Georgia.
Type-A Margot Cary is the leading event planner for the crème de la crème of Chicago high society. No request is too extravagant for her to execute with trademark perfection. That is, until an unfortunate incident involving a shrimp tower, live flamingos, and a shellfish allergy puts her on the black list of the rich and social and out of a job. With the lights about to be shut off in the trendy condo she can no longer afford, and her savings account dwindling, Margot’s situation is near to desperate.
In steps her birth father’s side of the family (who she’s never met), the McCreadys…the McCreadys of the McCready Family Funeral Home and Bait Shop in small town Georgia—and as luck would have it, they’re looking for an event planner and don’t care about her reputation among the A-list crowd. As Margot tackles small town life—where everyone knows everything about everyone—and builds a relationship with a father who she’d never known, she discovers the comforts that community, a rather large extended family, and a rugged, unpretentious country man can offer…
I like the first one with the big tea jar dispenser. Which cover do you like best?
