This really felt like Marianne's story to me. Yes, there is some romance between Marianne and Carl but this was Marianne's tale. Marianne left the small town she grew up in when she went to college because she was looking for something more. She found what she thought she wanted and has a life she likes and what she thinks she needs as she comes home for a little while before going to law school.
Marianne has a large and colorful family and they all live by each other. Some of her family works in the funeral industry and Marianne is there to help out since she is home for a while. She ends up putting some of her negotiation skills to use pretty quickly when a family can't decide how to handle a loved one's final wishes. It was fun to watch Marianne try to find her spot in her family and their business.
When Marianne left the small town, she left Carl. It is pretty obvious right away that Carl and Marianne are still very attracted to each other. They have a lot of unresolved issues to work through since their break up was pretty rough but I thought that they really seemed to fit with each other.
I would recommend this book to others. I will say that just as the romance started to get going the book ended. I guess the idea behind a prequel novella is to make readers want to start reading the series and I can say that this novella accomplished that goal because I do want to find out what happens next. Anyone who enjoys a fun romantic story filled with humor and great characters will enjoy this one. I can't wait to read more from Molly Harper soon!
I won a kindle copy of this book from a giveaway on Goodreads.
When Marianne McCready graduated from high school four years ago, she believed getting away from the coastal town of Lake Sackett, Georgia would ensure her life turned out well. Breaking up with her boyfriend, Carl Dawson, right before leaving was exceedingly difficult, yet she also thought it was for the best. Marianne has not been back home very much, mostly because she wanted to avoid Carl, but she has decided to stay with her family for several months until law school starts in the fall.
Unfortunately for Marianne, the first person that she encounters is Carl, and there is little warmth in his greeting. But as the two keep running into each other from time to time, feelings they once shared start resurfacing. Now Marianne has to decide if her future is in another city, or if staying in her hometown can actually bring contentment.
Though the story is a novella, it is certainly not short on enjoyment. There are many distinctive characters whose personalities brought me joy every time they commented, and the behavior of some people was laughable but sadly true-to-life. Molly Harper always manages to create original individuals for her stories, and many of those in SAVE A TRUCK, RIDE A REDNECK are people whom I would really like to know. The quaint hometown feel in the story had me thinking about where I live, and then grinning as I pictured some of the same occurrences taking place in my area.
Marianne and Carl are a delightful couple. Watching them rehash old hurts was rather painful at times, but just like real life, there are often challenges to overcome. Whenever they talked, I anxiously waited to see what would happen next. Their interaction with other town citizens is sometimes hilarious, while other moments were more poignant, making a perfect blend of emotional conflict with witty humor. Marianne’s dealings with her family were also insightful, as it let me get to know all her wonderful relatives. I am glad this is a series, because I want to revisit with these fascinating characters many times.
I voluntarily reviewed the book from the publisher via NetGalley, and all comments are my honest opinion
Marianne left Lake Sackett after high school to chase her dreams of becoming a lawyer, and hasn’t looked back. She left the man she loved, and a family who adores her. So when she comes back for a summer before starting law school, she isn’t so sure how things are going to go. When the first person she sees is Carl things definitely are tense. I loved how she tried to pretend that the past was the past, but you definitely knew that she still wanted him, but she couldn’t take back what she did all those years ago.
Marianne is having a hard time adjusting to being back in Lake Sackett and being around her crazy family, but at the same time, she’s loving having everyone around, and she’s starting to realize being home isn’t as bad as she thought it would be. Maybe all of her dreams she thought she had weren’t as important as the people she left behind. I loved watching her find herself again, and reconciling with the people she loved the most. Watching her and Carl trying to figure things out and the whole will they or won’t they was amazing to watch play out.
This book was a sweet novella and an amazing start to the series. You get to meet all of the amazing characters in the family, and some of the towns people as well. Carl and Marianne have a long way to get back to what they have, but this isn’t all about them reconciling, it’s also about Marianne truly figuring out what she wants in life as well. If you’re looking for a sweet novella to jump into, and a new series to fall in love with (all stand-alones) then I highly suggest picking up Save A Truck, Ride A Redneck by Molly Harper today!
