SWEET TEA AND SYMPATHY is out today!

It’s here! SWEET TEA AND SYMPATHY is now available in print, ebook and audio. (Amanda Ronconi is narrating.)

Summary: 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?

NICE GIRLS DON’T HAVE FANGS listed among the top 100 Audible Essentials.

AW, NICE GIRLS DON’T HAVE FANGS is listed among the top 100 Audible Essentials again.

“The Molly Harper/Amanda Ronconi pairing has become the stuff of Audible legend, and it all started with this book. In fact, Ronconi has become so essential to the lifeblood (pun intended) of this vampire romance series, that it was no surprise when Harper dedicated one of her recent books to her narrator. The kick-off to the delightfully quirky Nice Girls series, as well as an equally popular spin-off series, this book has been a non-stop hit with our listeners for nearly a decade, with no signs of waning. —Jess, Audible Editor”

That’s so nice.

SAVE A TRUCK, RIDE A REDNECK
 
Carl and Marianne were high school sweethearts, loving the way only teenagers can—with no thought to logic or pride, just a bone-headed, optimistic frenzy of unicorns and hormones. That was all they needed. Or so Carl thought.
 
Scared of being stuck in Lake Sackett, Georgia, like so many of her friends—without a real shot at a future or achieving her own dreams—Marianne panicked and bolted to college after stomping Carl’s heart into the high grass. But when she returns to Lake Sackett for the summer with her family after years away, she and Carl are drawn together like moths to a flame. As they rekindle their old romance and remember what it was like to be in love, they have to wonder: is this, finally, their real chance at happiness?

SWEET TEA AND SYMPATHY gets 4 stars from RT Book Reviews

SWEET TEA AND SYMPATHY gets 4 stars from RT Book Reviews!
 
“Sassy, Southern and full of hilarious characters, Harper’s new series is off to a great start! From the laugh-out-loud disaster that begins the book to the hysterically Southern-small-town entity of the McCready Funeral Home and Bait Shop (yes, you read that correctly), there is plenty of opportunity for readers to chuckle, if not outright guffaw, throughout this novel.”

ACCIDENTAL SIRE available in ebook and audio now!

It’s here!

ACCIDENTAL SIRE, the latest title in the Half-Moon Hollow series, is available in ebook and audio.

ACCIDENTAL SIRE features Ben, Gigi’s ex-boyfriend, courting his lady love, Meagan, even after she gets taken down by the most bizarre Ultimate Frisbee accident in history. Meagan and Ben are moved to Half-Moon Hollow to be fostered by Jane Jameson, who is suffering from major empty nest syndrome now that Jamie has moved away to college. They live in River Oaks, work for the Council office and are very, very closely supervised at all times. But as they adjust to their new vampire powers, Ben and Meagan discover that they aren’t “normal” vampires, which is exciting and dangerous all at once. Between office politics, relationship hijinks and scientists that want to turn them into lab projects, Half-Moon Hollow is just as quiet and quaint as ever – which is not at all.
