Product Description

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?

Editorial Reviews

Southern Fried Sushi is fun and heart-wrenching, deep and up-lifting. That is no mean feat. Jennifer Rogers Spinola has written a winner!

 ~Arlene James, author
This is an inspirational story that will surely touch your heart. It is a tale of someone searching for their own destiny and finding it right at their fingertips. Don't miss this special treat!
 
I thoroughly enjoyed this beautiful story of a young woman's search for God. I loved how God's story of redemption was seamlessly woven into the plot and how Shiloh learns to accept the kindness and forgiveness of people she makes fun of. Her search for her Savior is so real and heartfelt -- I cried as she cried out to God for answers and healing. My favorite part of this book was that the romance is between Shiloh and God. This story is her journey as she searches for the God that her mother found and the God who changed her mother's life so dramatically. I would definitely recommend this read to anyone who enjoys a story about a girl searching for God in an unlikely place.

Southern Fried Sushi by Jennifer Rogers Spinola was thoroughly entertaining, hilarious, deep and insightful! I loved Shiloh P. Jacobs and I’m still wondering what the “P” stands for…hmmmm maybe we’ll find out in the next book.  I also loved the mix of Japanese culture and Southern culture (especially the dialogue!).  Spinola has perfectly captured the feelings, thoughts and emotions of a person exposed to a radically different environment and culture.  And Shiloh’s feelings and issues with her mother are very convincing.  Kudos to Spinola for creating characters that seem 3D in this story!!!


If you're into light-hearted books with a tiny splash of romance, Southern Fried Sushi is perfect. I am now reading the second book, Like Sweet Potato Pie (again with the cool titles), and I'm loving it so far. I'll definitely be on the lookout for book #3, Til Grits Do Us Part.

Spinola is an excellent author and knows just the right elements to add, when to add them, and how to keep a story exciting and moving forward. The characters are all well developed and you get a real sense of the role they play in Shiloh’s life.
