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.
The beginning of this book was a bit rough for me. But just because there are so many people right away and that was a bit overwhelming. But the more we get into the story the more fun it was. And actually come to think of it made us feel like Margot, who also was not used to such a bug family and the small town living.
This book was a fun, sweet and sexy story. But also with some heartbreak, and a lot of heartwarming moments. ‘
I really enjoyed the story, it was well written, a great pacing and was nicely balanced between humor and heartbreak.
Margot was a little annoying at the beginning but she grew on me. I did however enjoy Kyle right away. He was charming and funny and yet a bit of a mystery
The side characters where just as much part of the story as the main couple, which I really enjoyed.
Overall fun m entertaining and romantic book.
I rate it 4 ★
