Shiloh's new life in Virginia isn't working out the way she expected, and she's up to her ears in financial woes. Her treacherous half-sister is contesting their mother's will, which leaves their mother's home to Shiloh, while the IRS is threatening to seize it for back taxes. In the midst of job problems and culture shock, it seems like the wrong men always show up at the worst possible time--but can Shiloh recognize which one is right? Will God answer the desires of her heart, or will circumstances destroy her new-found faith?
Witness as Shiloh’s new life in Virginia crumbles around her. The house she inherited from her mother is much more than a place to live—it represents Shiloh’s changed life and what little financial security she has. But her half sister is contesting their mother’s will and the IRS is threatening to take it for back taxes. She’s also discovering God’s ideal when it comes to love and romance. When Mr. Right shows up will she recognize God’s hand or let circumstances and prejudices blind her heart to the love of her life?
Jennifer Rogers Spinola, a Virginia/South Carolina native and graduate of Gardner-Webb University in North Carolina, just moved to the Black Hills of South Dakota with her Brazilian husband, Athos, son Ethan, and second miracle boy on the way. Jennifer lived in Brazil for nearly eight years after meeting her husband in Sapporo, Japan, where she worked as a missionary. During college, she served as a National Park Service volunteer at Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks. In between waddling to ultrasounds and homeschooling high-energy Ethan, Jennifer loves adoption, gardening (her first garden!), snow, hiking, camping, and—of course—Yellowstone.
I loved this book! While the first book in the series (Southern Fried Sushi) starts off slowly and builds to a fun read, this book hits its stride early. Shiloh is still a funny, bumbling mess trying to figure out her place in the world. Like most Christians, especially new in their faith, she embraces Christ, but the past still calls her in the form of her ex-fiance and the dream of working as a reporter again.
Spinola's style of writing is fun and the characters seem to come alive in this book. Becky and Tim's struggle with conceiving a child is well-done and adds a serious balance to the funny episodes in which Shiloh finds herself. What I like most about this book is that the author has the characters endure real experiences and emotions. Shiloh's new walk with Christ and her struggle to figure out God's plan for her makes for an interesting read.
Fans of Christian fiction will enjoy this book. I do recommend reading book one first.
This sequel to Southern Fried Sushi continues right where the first book left off. This book has elements of fun and faith depicted in characters with deep Southern roots. Shiloh's journey in her faith and growth in maturity is apparent.
LIKE SWEET POTATO PIE is the sequel to Spinola's Southern Fried Sushi and is just as comical and endearing as the first. It's filled with inspiration through and through, and you'll find yourself pulling for things to work out well for Shiloh. Spinola does a fairly good job of catching you up to speed from the first story, but it helps to have read it to really understand this one. Don't miss either one -- they're charming!
