The second book in the Southern Eclectic series, Ain’t She A Peach, is a fun read full of eccentric characters. Frankie McCready is the town coroner in Lake Sackett, Georgia. When there are multiple break-ins at the McCready Family Funeral Home and Bait Shop Frankie looks to the new sheriff Eric Linden to help solve the issue.

I honestly love the McCready family. Even though this book is short the reader gets a good glimpse into each of these crazy characters. Frankie is the main character of this book in the series. She is a quirky, slightly immature, slightly gothic southern girl who loves nerd culture. Aunt Tootie, the dog-loving matriarch of the family, is a great character. She truly looks out for the whole family and wants what is best for them. Margot, Frankies cousin, is also wonderful. I love the relationship between her and Frankie. The whole family just seemed so real! A lot of the scenes of them together reminded me of my family in a lot of ways.

This book is very character-driven and the plot is very tame in my opinion. While I did enjoy reading it, mostly because of the characters and relationships, I did feel like there wasn’t really enough going on to keep the plot interesting. There were never any big moments of suspense, drama, or mystery. That didn’t stop me from reading through. There were quite a few funny scenes throughout the book. Unfortunately, this book is just not very memorable. I would say if you are looking for something light, fun, quick, and easy to read that will make you laugh this book is for you.
