Overview

Southern Fried, the romantic misadventure of Trip Jackson and his stable boy, Zeb Jones, is about the love of family, the love of one's heritage, and the love between friends, both old and new. It's as antebellum as Tara ever was, but with a deliciously suspenseful and sexy twist. Because what our heroes are quick to discover is that not all is as it appears to be, and sometimes life can get turned upside down when you least expect it. Especially when lip-smacking romance, deep-dish humor, and a side of mystery fall on your plate, all, of course, served up southern-style.

Trip Jackson is a Southern-bred young gay man, who returns home to small town South Carolina for his grandmother's funeral. Despite being gone "up north" for many years, he quickly reconnects with her cook/maid and other staff who were like family to him then and now. He also learns indirectly about the new stable boy, Zeb Jones, whom his grandmother apparently took a liking to, and the feeling is mutual when Zeb and Trip notice an immediate attraction to each other. But, after the funeral and the reading of the will, it becomes clearer that there are some shady things going on, possibly involving Zeb and someone else on the staff, a conspiracy that threatens to seize a large portion of the estate left by his grandmother and limiting Trip and the rest of the loyal staff with leftovers. I have been a big fan of Rob Rosen's full-length novels since his first, "Sparkle," which I consider the ultimate feel-good light read. Subsequent books have been in the same, breezy vein, with deeply developed, unique and colorful characters and events, as is the case here as well. More so than the earlier books, however, Rosen adds a relatively serious mystery/action plot over the story, which - in my opinion - did not mesh well with its otherwise happy-go-lucky tone and significant erotic content. The pre-release galley copy I was provided also suffered from quite a few grammatical errors which were somewhat distracting. It is otherwise written well, and is still an amusing read. I give it three stars out of five. - Bob Lind, Echo Magazine
