Book Review: The Peach Keeper by Sarah Addison Allen

A few years ago a friend and I were watching a movie when I realized that certain plot points did not make sense and I voiced my observations. She stopped the movie to ask if I was enjoying it, I was. And she asked it I wanted to stop watching, I did not. She then introduced me to the suspend button. You “smash it” anytime you want to suspend reality in a book, movie or TV show. There is a time and place for low stress, simple entertainment and the suspend button makes it possible.

The Peach Keeper is a light beach or front porch read. I would call it Southern Chick Lit with a rich girl struggling to meet her mother’s expectations, a gala event, family history, a defiant female loner from the wrong side of the tracks and some romance for all. I enjoyed the book. It is a stressful time and escapism through a nice, easy comfort read hit the spot.

    I read that one a while ago. It’s a nice everything works out in the end type of book. As long as you’re open to suspending reality and want that HEA, it meets expectations.
    The rest of her books are pretty much the same. A different form of reality and everything works out. If you want another like it.
