review: sweet tea and sympathy by molly harper

This post contains affiliate links.

Molly Harper's new series kicks off with a hilarious scene involving shrimp, flamingos, and the trampling of rare orchids. It's a big enough disaster to cause Margot Cary to be fired from her job and not be able to get another suitable position. Making matters worse, she didn't renew her lease because she was buying a condo, which is out of the question now. So even though she hasn't had any contact with her father's family since her mom left him when Margot was a toddler, Margot agrees to her Great Aunt Tootie's job offer. The adjustment to life in small town Georgia after living in Chicago makes for more hilarity.

Sweet Tea and Sympathy is a sweet story of family. And does Margot have quite the family! They are a colorful bunch to say the least. This first in a series is filled with the hijinks of a close family and all sorts of small town gossip and rivalries. There's also a Hallmark movie-style romance between Margot and the widowed elementary school principal.
