    3 Hitch a Ride Stars Save a Truck, Ride a Redneck is a novella and is a standalone. I would suggest reading the first book in the series first or plan to read it right after this one, only because you get more insight of the characters. Since this is a novella, I didn’t get a lot of character development and a lot of secondary characters were thrown at my face. It’s a little hard to follow, but there is a family tree at the beginning of book ...

    Initial ThoughtsI didn't want it to end! was just getting to the good stuff and's over. It was a nice intro to the series. I thought it was fun and the characters were great. I had fun with it but would have really liked to see another chapter or maybe an epilogue. I won a copy of this book in a Goodreads giveaway. Full review to be posted soon.

    A short and sweet Contemporary Romance about a woman returning home for the first time in a few years. It's kind of perfect. It has Molly Harper's trademark snark, it's entertaining and it's G Rated so you could give this book to your grandma without worrying too much.

    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...

    This is my first time reading Molly Harper, but I've seen her name here and there. Browsing Netgalley one day the title caught my eye, and when I saw the author's name I decided it was time to try her out so I requested it, and a big thank you to the publisher for accepting my request! This is a sweet second chance romance. Marianne is interesting and self-deprecating. She hightailed it out of her small town to go to college, and Carl was left be...

    It's been years since I read a book by Molly Harper. But the names of authors who make me laugh OUT LOUD always stick with me so when I saw a new title with her name attached to it, I was on it.Save a Truck Ride a Redneck has all of the quirk I expect from a Molly Harper novel and eccentric characters, but it also has a love for the small town lifestyle and the idiosyncrasies that go with it.Marianne's family who runs a funeral home/bait shop (y...

    3.5 stars Save a Truck, Ride a Redneck was the hush puppy to the big catfish buffet that's about to happen when the rest of Molly Harper's new contemporary series, Southern Eclectic hits the bookshelves. This novella did what all starters for new series should. It set up the town and the people in it. Wither Harper is writing about vampires, naked werewolves or other plain Jane humans in some of her other contemporary romances the flavor is the...

    I really like this author. I made the mistake of reading Sweet Tea and Sympathy first. This book was like a delicious appetizer preceding an incredible meal. I love this family and I can tell that there are more stories to tell.Marianne has left her little town to go to college. She leaves behind her true love, Carl, but she breaks up with him before her departure because she is under the impression that he wants a commitment of marriage which wi...

    Carl is just a really sexy man when he's all fired up, "Carl whipped off his baseball cap. “You are the most frustratin’ woman I have ever met.” I loved this little novella Marianne's family is just crazy and her brother Duffy was just funny, “Carl! Do not take my sister to Deer Tick Bay! It’s indecent! It’s against the Bro Code! Manny! Resist his charms! Do not defile my boat!” I can't wait for more in this series.
  • Amelia
    Lots of smiles are guaranteed when reading a book by Molly Harper, and this fact is repeatedly proven in the first book of the Southern Eclectic series. With its unique individuals and comical situations, I quickly became caught up in the lives of these exceptional characters. The appeal of living in a small town is shown in a number of positive ways, yet there is a downside because residents are often privy to specific information which is best ...

    Save a Truck is a prequel novella introducing readers to Molly Harper's upcoming Southern Eclectic series taking place in Lake Sackett, Georgia, a small town where everyone knows everyone else's business.This is particularly true for Marianne McCready who left Lake Sackett four years ago to go to school to pursue her dream of becoming a lawyer, and not keeping in the tradition of working at the family bait shop / funeral home. Right before she le...

    My Review:OMG, if this is a preview of how good this series is going to be, I'm completely on board as an auto-buy for this series.This is a second chance at love story. Four years ago, Marianne went to college and broke up with Carl right before she left, breaking his heart. Now she's home for the summer before she heads off to law school and seeing Carl for the first time in four years...and it's not easy. The entire story is told from Marianne...

    Molly Harper’s new book is a fun tale that is quick and easy to read. The book isn’t very long, but Ms. Harper puts a lot of information into the story. This book kicks off Ms. Harper’s newest series Southern Eclectic.Marianne McCready knew she wasn’t cut out for either part of her family’s business. Her family runs both a fishing store and the local funeral parlor. She always planned to leave Lake Sackett, Georgia for college and to ne...

    I had never read a book by Molly Harper before but had seen her name quite a bit come up on my “If you like this author you should like these” lists so I figured I’d give her a chance. I was glad I took the opportunity because in a world that gets increasingly crazy and dark, Harper provides a respite with a sweet romance.Well-written with interesting characters who allow us to feel their emotional highs and lows I was able to connect with ...

    The title alone had me intrigued. So catchy!! Take me to the rednecks. They say location is what matters. Let me tell you the location of this story is a smorgasbord of future books. This preview (novella) was one of the best teasers for future books I have read in quite some time. So what was so good about it you may ask. First off all this is a second chance romance, one of the most fun genres that I read. It was also a second chance homecoming...

    Molly Harper’s novella, Save a Truck, Ride a Redneck, is a great introduction into her series. I love the location of Lake Sackett, GA. I don’t know if such a place really exists, but the author made it real if it isn’t. I read this book after enjoying Sweet Tea and Sympathy, and only then realized Save a Truck, Ride a Redneck was the first in the series—not the second like it is depicted on Amazon. The southern comfort of family and valu...

    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...

    4 Sweet Southern Stars!I'm a first time reader of this author and now a fan! Save a Truck, Ride a Redneck is a sweet and short read about second chances in the small town of Lake Sackett, Georgia. Carl and Marianne were from high school sweethearts, but from different side of the tracks. Marianne loved Carl, but seeing her future--being a young wife and stuck in this small town, made Marianne antsy. She left town for college for a "bigger" future...
  • Zvezdana
    Yes, it's a novella, but it is way to brief even for that. She went away for college - did she meet any people there? Nope. Make any friends? Nope. Do anything but pine for home and the guy she ran from? Nope. Did she have any friends at home, before she left, that she could reconnect with after coming back? Nope.She just ran away and now she's back, they have a brief conversation - and they are back together, as if nothing happened, and striding...

    Heading back home to spend the summer before going to law school, Marianne begins to question her life goals and dreams. She’s always feared being stuck in small-town Sackett, Georgia, but now the idea has a little more appeal, as long as she can maintain some distance between herself and her large family. Carl and Marianne were high school sweethearts, but when Marianne thought Carl might propose before Marianne headed off to college, she pani...

    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.
