NUMBER OF HEARTS: 4 3/4 Save a Truck, Ride a Redneck is the pre-quel to Molly Harper’s new series and I couldn’t be more excited!! I mean a family that has a bait shop/funeral home (yes, you read that right!!!) has to be fun right?? The McCready family has been in the Bait/Funeral business (oh that sounds bad!! They don’t use the bodies as bait I promise) for generations!! I am super excited to see what is in store for this family. Save a Truck, Ride a Redneck is a second chance love story for Marianne & Carl. I won’t give to much away (because you need to read) but I will say that I enjoyed the journey that Marianne & Carl’s story! Carl is very sweet and forgiving (although I do hope that he gives Marianne a hard time every now and a gain ;) ). I am loving Marianne’s family and can’t wait to see who a story. I can’t wait for the next installment Sweet Tea & Sympathy (November 2017)!! Also can’t wait to get the audio version of this story! The amazingly talented Amanda Ronconi is lending her voice to this series also!!! Watch for audio review to come soon.

3.5 stars--SAVE A TRUCK, RIDE A REDNECK is the first instalment (and novella) in Molly Harper's contemporary, adult SOUTHERN ECLECTIC sweet, romance series focusing on the men and women of Lake Sackett, Georgia. This is law student Marianne McCready, and auto mechanic Carl Dawson's story line. Told from third person perspective (Marianne ) SAVE A TRUCK, RIDE A REDNECK is a second chance story line between high school sweethearts and lovers Marianne McCready and Carl Dawson. Marianne had big plans after graduating high school with law school in mind, and Carl was willing to wait for the woman he had always loved but something spooked Marianne just days before leaving Lake Sackett, Georgia, and our heroine ran without looking back. Broken hearted Carl moved on with his life hoping one day that Marianne would acknowledge the love they once had. Fast forward four years, and our heroine, at the insistence of her mother, returns to Lake Sackett, Georgia to discover that old feelings burned deeply but a broken heart was harder to mend. What ensues is the rebuilding relationship between Carl and Marianne, as Marianne reconsiders her plans for the future. SAVE A TRUCK, RIDE A REDNECK is a story of family and friendship; second chances and happily ever after. The world building looks at the usual assortment of townsfolk including the local gossip and busybody still intent on destroying people's lives. There is a large ensemble cast of secondary and supporting characters including all of Marianne's extended family who own and operate the local funeral parlour. Be prepared with a spreadsheet to keep all of the characters organized and connected. The romance looks follows the rebuilding relationship between our leading couple. There are no $ex scenes-implied or otherwise. A majority of the story line follows Marianne as she reconnects with family and considers the next step in her life. SAVE A TRUCK, RIDE A REDNECK is a cute, clean story of second chances with an odd collection of eccentric family members, towns people, southern charm and figures of speech.

I had read some of Molly’s other books a while ago and this synopsis + her name had me eager to read this. I liked Marianne and Carl well enough. They’re both good people with an interesting past. There are a lot a lot a lot of characters and it seemed like we got the backstory on every single person who was mentioned. I especially liked Frankie and Duffy. Plot wise, it felt like a lot of tell and not show. I didn’t really see the chemistry between Marianne and Carl and the few conversations they had didn’t seem like enough of a basis to practically get married. Overall, I feel like this story would have been better as a full length. There was definitely promise, but it moved a bit to quickly for me to really enjoy it. However, it was a quick, fun read and I am interested in other books in the series. **Huge thanks to Pocket Star for providing the arc free of charge**

Marianne has left her small town of Lake Sackett, GA. She is determined to make something of herself and get away from the family business, a funeral home and bait shop (yep!! You heard me right). She is following her dream at the cost many of her friends and family, especially Carl, her first and only true love. Carl is the strong silent type and I fell in love with him immediately. I definitely see the attraction between him and Marianne. I also understand Marianne’s need to escape and create a life away from Lake Sackett. She has been accepted into law school and her determination to reach her dream has blinded her to the good things about her friends, family and her hometown. I think Molly Harper is becoming one of my favorite authors. I adored Sweet Tea and Sympathy . This novella follows the same family. With the quirky comments and the sly wit, what is there not to love! The characters are true southerners and their antics, especially Tootie, are unforgettable. Grab this one up and start smiling! I received this novella from Simon and Schuster a part of #XOXPERTS

Sweet, funny southern romance nobody writes like Molly Harper. I laughed and loved and laughed some more. Molly Harper can make you giggle at the most unlikely events. Carl is just like the guys in the Georgian town I live in and I think we have all met a girl like Marianne. Grab a glass of sweet tea and enjoy.
