Princess, Southern belle, and spoiled-rotten social climber Searcy Roberts swore on a stack of Bibles she’d never return home to Fairhope, Alabama. After marrying her high school sweetheart and moving to Atlanta, Searcy embraces big-city life—Carrie Bradshaw style.
But now, Searcy has a teeny, tiny problem. Her husband’s had a mid-life crisis. He’s quit his job, cancelled her credit cards, and left her for another man.
Searcy returns to Fairhope, ready to lick her wounds. But when her mother falls ill, she’s is thrust into managing the family business—only to discover the beloved bakery is in danger of closing its doors forever.
Enlisting the help of the adorable bike store owner next door, an array of well-heeled customers, and her soon-to-be ex-husband, Searcy hatches the plan of the century to save Pie Girls.
I've never read anything from Lauren Clark before but I've heard that she's written some really good 'chick-flick' books in the past so I was excited when I received the opportunity to read Pie Girls. This book was just lovely and whilst at the beginning, I really didn't like the main character Searcy, I grew to love her just as her character grew. The story isn't just fluffy romance and chick flick content, it did have some deeper moments that I found myself being sucked into and the whole book was incredibly easy to read, meaning I finished it in one sitting. Lauren Clark definitely has an intriguing way of writing, and I'll be reading more of her work in the future.
