Editorial Reviews

Laura the Book Worm - Laura Jackson

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.
Fresh Fiction - Viki Ferrell

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!
Hoasanna's Journey

This is the sequel to Southern Fried Sushi, and it was just as good as the first book. LIke Sweet Potato Pie picks up where Southern Fried Sushi ended, following Shiloh’s life in Staunton, VA. It is a great look at an outsider’s view on Southern life.

 

In Like Sweet Potato Pie, Shiloh has to face more consequences of spending so much money trying to fit in when she lived in Japan. But she won’t face those consequences alone. With friends around her to encourage her and question her, Shiloh finds her footing in this new time in her life.

 

This book is filled with love, friendship, and what it means to be there for other people. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to curl up with a good read.
