To Margot’s surprise, she’s taken a liking to life in small-town Georgia… helped along by a romance with the hot elementary school principal.
The two of them have been taking it slow–or they were until Margot gets pregnant! Kyle wants to make an honest woman of her, but Margot’s still trying to proceed with caution. After all, she was the best event planner in Chicago before she ever came to Lake Sacketther wedding has to be perfect, and perfect includes not having the baby halfway down the aisle.

Fly Girl’s Review:
It has been so long since Molly Harper released her last book in the Southern Eclectic series so when I saw this one finally come up, I jumped on it. A Few Pecans Short of a Pie is book 5 in the series and it is so cute. A great extension of Kyle and Margo’s story. She brings the laughs in this one just as we expect, but a softness comes with Margo’s pregnancy and we also get to see her relationship build between her and the women of her clan. That’s what I’m calling them. Lake Sackett is busy as usual and won’t wait for Margo and Kyle to get married or for her to have her baby. Good thing that the community is small so everyone gives her a lot of leeway to get through her morning sickness and the tears. Everyone carries tissue just for her. She has such and emotional rollercoaster in this one that you aren’t sure if it’s the pregnancy or the newness of her relationships with her extended family that create all the drama, but there is drama…
In the end Margo settles on a wedding that makes her and Kyle happy but still includes her family in a more subdued manner. There are lots of clues as to the next book in the series…Gimme Some Sugar…which will be Duffy’s story. We get to see how the McCready men find love in the next one and I can’t wait.
I’m giving this a 4.5 of 5 because I love the wrap up to Margo and Kyle’s love story. It was sweet and genuine and believable. What more can you ask for in a romance. Molly definitely brings it in this one!!! Pick it up and be sure to pre-order Gimme Some Sugar arriving April 2nd.
