This was an interesting book that I'm not sure if I liked. I thought this would be more lighthearted and I found the unethical actions of the college administration very disturbing. The blurb said it "will make you laugh, love and cheer for one Southern peach with a pit of steel". I kept waiting for that to happen but I never really warmed up to Georgie and the other characters seemed one-dimensional. I think more time taken on developing them would have been beneficial. I guess this one was jus ...more

Georgia Davis is attempting to live her life to the fullest in Like Peaches and Pickles by Muriel Ellis Pritchett. However, things don’t quite go as planned, and she has to figure out the direction her life will lead.

Georgia Davis is a graduate of Georgia Southern University. She is 55 years old and has slowly grown from a lower level public relations positions with the school. However, now as an associate vice president for the public rela

Like Peaches and Pickles by Muriel Ellis Pritchett is a cute romantic comedy that takes place on a college campus. Georgia Davis is 55, and she has her life all planned out, until they don't work out. Peaches and Pickles was a fun book, but I enjoyed this authors book Making Lemonade better. I really enjoy that both book have heroins who are 50+, after all new adventures start for them than. I will be reading more of Ms. Pritchett's books.

Not bad

Very busy book that I feel could have been longer to give more details on some characters. This is still a good book and my first from this author.

I received an Advanced Reader Copy from NetGalley for my unbiased opinion of the book. I love this book. I could identify with Georgia. Her and I are a lot a like. It is refreshing and I wish there are more stories geared to people 50+. Georgia gets fired due to the old boy network. She tries doing the right thing but it didn't work out in the past and now she gets even! It was great seeing her find the backbone she always had and now put it into action and becomes a stronger person because of i ...more
A college PR person doesn’t get the job she wanted.

Right off, I am going to admit something: I think I got confused and clicked on this book as I searched for AIN'T SHE A PEACH by Molly Harper and I click on this, but the premise seemed cute so I began reading it.

Also, the author contacted about the book after I downloaded it and told me

This was not my typical book to read. I am stretching my wings so to speak when reading so I picked this one because it is about an older woman who put her career as the main point in her life. She never married or had children because her career was more important to her. She does not regret this decision in any way and loves her job. The problem is that she is in a mainly male position and the competition are dirty, manipulative scoundrels that do not deserve the positions they currently hold ...more

I like Georgia and this story of her life. She's in her 50's and has mapped out her future. She is sure she will be the new vice president of the university where she has worked for 25 years but the new administrator hires an old friend of his and wants Georgia fired. I liked Ms. Pritchett's earlier book , Making Lemonade also. This is a great story with a leading lady that is older and knows her way around the work place and life. Thinking this will be book 1 in a series. I received a copy of t ...more

This is just an average book. There were quite a few typos. Mostly they were when money was mentioned. Example, for one and a half million dollars it would say one and a half dollar million. I think someone wrote this that doesn’t understand American currency. The story was kind of depressing and boring. A lot of workplace backstabbing, firing and underhandedness. Mostly a downer.

I have never read a book like this about politics or things like that. But this was very good and captivating , I read the whole thing in one day. Also it was very nice of the author to give me a signed copy when i asked for an advanced reader's copy . i am very impressed.

Another engrossing and entertaining story of a woman who is down trodden and decides to make some positive changes with delightful results.

I don't mean to be harsh just because I have read this same story many times before. I don't care for romance novels.

I received an ARC ebook from Netgalley. I read this book while on a summer holiday at the beach and it was a perfect fit. As others have mentioned it is refreshing to have a heroine who is a single career woman in her 50s.

Georgia is inevitably passed over for promotion due to the machinations of the old boys club, and herein starts the drama. At times the storyline is a tad melodramatic and some of the ‘villains’ are stereotyped. However it was an enjoyable story and kept me engaged.
