A story of a quite unlikable southern princess named Searcy, who escaped her small town in Alabama by marrying rich and moving off to the big city to live the good life. Only things take an unexpected turn in many ways for her when her marriage ends and she winds up back in the small town trying to pick up the pieces and save her father's bakery business. Searcy has a lot of lessons to learn about life and some growing up to do but this story really touched me with its small town appeal.
I love any story that deals with themes of starting over, second chances and even the possibility of new love. A great read for sure.
Pie Girls by Lauren Clark is a delicious (see what I did there?) romance that any fan of Phillips or Crusie would be hard pressed to put down until it was finished.
The 3 Second Review (for good measure):
Did you love Hope Floats? Yes? Buy this.
What I loved:
Searcy (the main character of Pie Girls) left her small town behind when she married Alton and moved to Atlanta to become a Rich Housewife of... but she also became a vapid, annoying, fashionista with nothing more important on her mind than what her husband was going to get her for their next anniversary.
Clark manages to create, in Searcy, an amazingly well-rounded characters that develops from a high-maintenance whiner into a strong, vivacious do-er. And the whole time I was eagerly gobbling up every word in every chapter.
Clark's ability to create characters that stick with you will keep you coming back for more.
What could have been improved upon:
I'd like to have seen a little bit slower development in Searcy's love life, but not because it felt rushed, but just because I wanted a little more here.
Why I gave it the rating that I did:
I rarely find romance novels that manage to create compelling three-dimensional characters with such grace, humor and fun as Clark's characters in Pie Girls. Like I said, If you are a fan of contemporary romances (that are sexy without graphic sex), you'll want to get this book on your eReader right away.
Starting out readers is greeted with Searcy. Someone who seems very high maintenance, that needs to best of everything, the latest fashion with a maid and butler. But as they say looks can be deceiving. In this reading can also be deceiving.
Searcy is waiting on her husband who is late for their anniversary dinner. A celebration that Searcy has painstakingly cooked, Lamb chops almond slivered green beans and chess pie. With a husband four hours late everything is over cooked or wilted beyond eating. Searcy is mad, who wouldn't be mad. All phone calls go directly to voice mail.
I started this book on a Friday night, fell asleep reading. This did not happen because the book is boring. I was up 3 hours past my bedtime. When I got up Saturday morning I did a little house work but just could not get into cleaning. This book was pulling at me to finish. I sat down with a glass of sweet tea (yes, southern style) and finished this book.
One moment I was laughing at and with the characters the next I wanted to cry. Throughout the book Searcy is on a roller coaster, little highs with lots of lows. But somehow she manages to keep pulling herself up, a strong female character that does not take anything lying down. She goes to extreme lengths to save what is most important. Searcy is a true Southern Belle, someone who grace and acts like a lady even when an enemy is throwing mud in her face. She happily shows everyone that she is not the high maintenance female but the hometown girl that was a little lost.
This was southern fiction at its finest. A perfect read for a lazy Saturday.
Thanks for a superb read Lauren.
The bunnies and I give this book 5 carrots.
