A young widow returns to Lake Sackett, Georgia to face
the ghosts of her pastâ€”and decide if sheâ€™s ready to take
another chance on loveâ€”in the third sparkling Southern
Eclectic novel that â€śgoes down as easy as honey on a
deep-fried Twinkieâ€ť (Library Journal, on Sweet Tea
Lucy Brewer would never have guessed that her best friend,
Duffy McCready (of McCreadyâ€™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 Lucyâ€™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 sheâ€™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 heâ€™s
always hoped for?
Once again Molly Harper â€śwrites characters you canâ€™t help
but fall in love withâ€ť (RT Book Reviews) in this
charming and entertaining love story.

Re: Gimme Some Sugar
I am very fond of Jenny Colgan and regard this as high
praise, indeed. Thanks for the review.
