Ride the rollercoaster of Shiloh Jacobs’s life as her dreams derail, sending her on a downward spiral from the heights of an AP job in Tokyo to penniless in rural Virginia. Trapped in a world so foreign to her sensibilities and surrounded by a quirky group of friends, will she break through her hardened prejudices before she loses those who want to help her? Can she find the key to what changed her estranged mother’s life so powerfully before her death that she became a different woman—and can it help Shiloh too?
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.

Southern Fried Sushi is a pleasant surprise. I met Shiloh in Japan, her adopted home country, along with the people and a career she saw as important to her life. Soon she hears of the passing of her estranged mother and is transported to Virginia to settle her mother's estate. However life as Shiloh knows it totally unravels and she finds herself stuck in a culture and a town she is completely unfamiliar with. In reading the book, I got to see Shiloh transformed by the new situations she faces and by the unconditional love shown her through her mother's friends who become her friends. The author of Southern Fried Sushi allows life to happen and encompasses all the emotions that comes along with it. It's a good read and I believe many will enjoy it.

Easy to read story. Good use of dialogue to reflect cultural and linguistic peculiarities. As a ebook, it was difficult to read because words rantogether about once per page. That makes it difficult toconcentrate on the story line. Youknowwhat I mean? Is this a problem from the publisher?

Iâ€™m not a huge fan of what some might call â€œsouthern typeâ€ reading, however, I have to say that when I picked up â€œSouthern Fried Sushiâ€, its content was not only unexpected, but enjoyed. Shiloh Jacobs is the relatable main character who speaks her mind, often saying what the rest of us are thinking, but wouldnâ€™t dare vocalize. Her circumstances change when a forced move drives her from her beloved Tokyo to rural Virginia. As Shiloh deals with the loss of her engagement, the death of a mom she hardly knew, and a new set of quirky friends, she learns what it means to not always be in controlâ€¦and often to ask for help.
I appreciated that this novel had a steady, enjoyable plot, but enough twists that someone (like myself) who enjoys the occasional Christian suspense novel wasnâ€™t at all bored. The authorâ€™s writing style is unique, punchy, and often quick at times. Her ability to dive into her main character and flesh Shiloh out was impressive, as Shiloh wasnâ€™t a carbon copy of many single female characters being written about today.
Through the eyes and circumstances of Shiloh, author Jennifer Rogers Spinola addresses what some might call some tougher issues: infertility and forgiveness being two such examples. As the main character and her friends live their lives and search for answers, these â€œChristianâ€ issues are addressed, but in a way that isnâ€™t shoved down someoneâ€™s throat. That was appreciated as I can see myself handing this book over to a neighbor or friend who doesnâ€™t yet know God.
The stage is also set for a romance between Shiloh and the town gardener, a man named Adam. However, there was so much more to this novel than the classic â€œguy gets girlâ€. Iâ€™m looking forward to reading the sequel, â€œLike Sweet Potato Pieâ€ and picking up where the first book left off.
Laura JAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Fun Read with a Great Message!December 27, 2011Laura JAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5
Summary: When Shiloh P. Jacob's mother passes away suddenly, Shiloh leaves her fast-paced life in Tokyo, Japan (where she's a reporter for AP and engaged to Carlos) to bury her mother in Virginia. While she is coming to terms with the death of her mother, who was never a real mother, Shiloh loses her job and her fiance. Stuck in redneck country, Shiloh has to put together the pieces of her life with a little help from some country folk.
My thoughts: The first few chapters had too many details and not enough action, but once Shiloh sets foot in Virgina, the story picks up and becomes a great read. The author's fun style is evident in the vivid, colorful characters (although a bit stereotypical of the South). The character development of Shiloh is heart-felt and authentic. The supporting characters of Becky and Faye are quirky additions and epitomize what's best about the South.
The spiritual truths are evident but not preachy...it's more of a development of character than a lecture to the reader.
I loved this book: from the cute cover, to the notebook Shiloh keeps of Southern sayings, to the roses in her mother's garden, to the truth that with God, things can bloom again.
I received this book in exchange for my review. My thoughts and opinions are my own.
