Beloved author Molly Harper launches a brand-new contemporary romance series, Southern Eclectic, with this story of a big-city party planner who finds true love in a small Georgia town.
Nestled on the shore of Lake Sackett, Georgia is the McCready Family Funeral Home and Bait Shop. (What, you have a problem with one-stop shopping?) Two McCready brothers started two separate businesses in the same building back in 1928, and now it’s become one big family affair. And true to form in small Southern towns, family business becomes everybody’s business.
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. Now she’s blackballed by the gala set and in dire need of a fresh start—and apparently the McCreadys are in need of an event planner with a tarnished reputation.
As Margot finds her footing in a town where everybody knows not only your name, but what you had for dinner last Saturday night and what you’ll wear to church on Sunday morning, she grudgingly has to admit that there are some things Lake Sackett does better than Chicago—including the dating prospects. Elementary school principal Kyle Archer is a fellow fish-out-of-water who volunteers to show Margot the picture-postcard side of Southern living. The two of them hit it off, but not everybody is happy to see an outsider snapping up one of the town's most eligible gentleman. Will Margot reel in her handsome fish, or will she have to release her latest catch?

What a fabulous start to a great series set with southern twist! You'll fall for all the quirkiness of the McCready family. They own the town's funeral home and bait shop combo!
Margot Cary is the big city girl and when her event-planning career takes a nose dive, she finds herself unemployed and homeless. But one call from her long last family in Lake Sackett, Georgia changes everything.
Margot grew up with her mother, living the rich, city life. She never knew her father or his side of the family. She's only known what her mother has told her and the stories were never good. So when she gets a phone from her Aunt Tootie in GA to head over to help out the family business, Margot takes the opportunity, but only to stay for a while, until she can get her "real" career back on track.
Meeting her newly found family has been challenging. Not only is a she so different (the way she grew up), she's trying to get use to the small town vibe. And to have a relationship with her absent father has proven to be hard and emotional. But slowly, teh McCready family starts to grow on her, along with the single and very hot, Kyle Archer.
Margot learns how to deal with small town gossip and a new life in Lake Sackett. Sweet Tea and Sympathy will take you on a humorous and also emotional ride as Margot adapts her life as a McCready. Looking forward for more in this series!
