Beloved author Molly Harper launches a brand-new contemporary romance series, Southern Eclectic, with this story of a big-city party planner who finds true love in a small Georgia town. Nestled on the shore of Lake Sackett, Georgia, is the McCready Family Funeral Home and Bait Shop. (What, you have a problem with one-stop shopping?) Two McCready brothers started two separate businesses in the same building back in 1928, and now it´s become one big family affair. And, true to form in small Southern towns, family business becomes everybody´s business. Margot Cary has spent her life immersed in everything Lake Sackett is not. As an elite event planner, Margot´s rubbed elbows with the cream of Chicago society and made elegance and glamour her business. She´s riding high until one event goes tragically, spectacularly wrong. Now she´s blackballed by the gala set and in dire need of a fresh start - and apparently the McCreadys are in need of an event planner with a tarnished reputation. As Margot finds her footing in a town where everybody knows not only your name but what you had for dinner last Saturday night and what you´ll wear to church on Sunday morning, she grudgingly has to admit that there are some things Lake Sackett does better than Chicago - including the dating prospects. Elementary school principal Kyle Archer is a fellow fish out of water who volunteers to show Margot the picture-postcard side of Southern living. The two of them hit it off, but not everybody is happy to see an outsider snapping up one of the town´s most eligible gentleman. Will Margot reel in her handsome fish, or will she have to release her latest catch? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Amanda Ronconi.

Like Tina Fey, Chelsea Handler, and other (best-selling) co-stars, Judy Greer is taking pen to paper and in her honest, self-deprecating, and hilariously relatable way reminding us why she´s not America´s sweetheart but America´s best friend. You know Judy Greer, right? Wait, what was she in again? The Wedding Planner, 13 Going on 30, 27 Dresses, The Descendants. Yes, you totally recognize her. And, odds are, if you´re like most women in America, you feel like she´s already your friend. Thankfully, Greer has finally written a book of essays about all the moments, topics, observations, and confessions that you would hope to hear from your best friend. How a midnight shopping trip to CVS can cure all. What it´s like to have stepchildren. And how she really feels about her mother. Yes, it´s all in there. But Judy Greer isn´t just a regular friend - she´s a celebrity friend. Want to know which celebs she´s peed next to? Or what the Oscars were actually like? Or which hot actor gave her father a Harley Davidson? Don´t worry - that´s included, too. Besides being laugh-out-loud funny, you´ll love her because she makes us genuinely feel like she´s one of us. Because even though she sometimes has a stylist and a make-up artist, she still wears (and hates!) Spanx. Because she starts her book like this: ´´This is who I am. This is what I think about things. This is stuff that happened to me, that could have just as easily have happened to you. I´m not that special, and we´re probably not that different. I think I am really lucky to be where I am in life, but I´ve never really lost that feeling that I don´t fit in, and if you have, will you please email me and tell me how you did it? I´m serious.´´ 1. Language: English. Narrator: Judy Greer. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/rand/003806/bk_rand_003806_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
