#10 of 2014 - Pie Girls by Lauren Clark

Pie Girls by Lauren Clark
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Published August 10th 2014 by Camellia Press

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.

What a great book about finding yourself. I loved joining Searcy on her very bumpy journey to self-discovery.
 
Searcy is such a strong character; everything that gets thrown at her she takes it in perfect stride. And I'll admit about every other chapter I'd think to myself "Alright this is the chapter where she'll snap." But she never did! And that's pretty awesome.
 
Again she's strong and never let's life knock her down.
Well, except that bit in the beginning. But- hey- you have to fall before you rise again. And Searcy didn't just rise, she shot up.
 
The story is very funny, very sweet and very very enjoyable. The characters are fun and so loveable, even the one's that only make brief appearances.
 
 
This is the second book by Lauren Clark that I've read and I have to admit that she's becoming one of my favorite go-to authors.
 
 
 
3 Months Later:
 
Pie Girls is technically the last book I read and reviewed this year. Everything afterward got away from me and I haven't been able to truly enjoy a book since.
And I did enjoy reading this. It almost didn't even make this list until the last minute when I realized that it really is one of my favorites from this year (actually bumped off a book I gave 5 stars to so it could have a spot.)
