Book description
Lucy Brewer would never have guessed that her best friend, Duffy McCready (of McCready’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 Lucy’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 she’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 he’s always hoped for?

Review by Gia:
Gimme Some Sugar is good read.  Molly Harper is new to me author so I hadn't realized to after I read Gimme Some Sugar that is was part of the Southern Eclectic series but it can be read as a standalone.   I honestly don't know what made me pick this one up to read it but I'm glad I did.  My first impression before I started reading this was that it was going to be a small town story with stuffy characters and boy was I not expecting how much of a fun read it would be.  The characters may live in a small town but they are definitely not stuffy.   Lucy a fun character.  I loved the fact that when we first met her in the book, she's making a nontraditional cake.  She had me laughing from the start.  Lucy has a lot of heavy stuff going on in her life.  She's back in the town she grew up in after the death of husband, trying to open a bakery, and has a pesty mother in-law to deal with.  Her paths cross with Duffy.  Duffy was her best friend.  He has a lot going on in his life too.  He has a crazy ex wife that definitely try to cause issues wherever she is.  I like Duffy and Lucy together.  They slowly transitioned from friends to more.  It's a sweet story.  
4 Stars!
