Overview

It’s all coming up roses.

Or it should be. Engaged to the last man she’d ever thought possible, Shiloh Jacobs is making a go of small-town life in rural Staunton, Virginia—writing again, planning a wedding, and about to sell the house that will make her dreams come true.

But instead of pre-wedded bliss, Shiloh finds herself virtually alone in Redneckville with no family to help her, no money, and no time to plan a wedding. Especially a wedding to a man as different as Adam Carter.

While covering an unsolved news case about a missing woman, things go from bad to worse for Shiloh—starting with mysterious rose bouquets and disturbing letters that link to her mother’s past. The more Shiloh tries to put her mother’s troubled history behind her, the more tangled in the case—and in the stalker’s sights—Shiloh becomes.

Forced to face her past secrets while on the run from a madman, can Shiloh identify the stalker before he strikes again? And as one dream after another falls flat, can she and Adam put aside their differences before it’s too late?

Editorial Reviews

Cafe Lily Book Reviews
If you haven't had a chance to read this series, I strongly encourage you to get them all! I love the multi-cultural theme the author brings to her stories, and how she manages to make all of her quirky characters work together in each book. And as I mentioned before, the use of southern terms and phrases appeal to my "southern roots" and keep me hooked.

Jennifer does a fantastic job of throwing out red herrings and keeping you guessing until the very end.

 

I truly enjoyed this book. Shiloh's sense of humor had me cracking up while her honest struggles as a new Christian made me want to hug her. It was that journey I most loved, her growth in God even when things were nearly impossible all around her. Her choices to do the hard things; forgive, let go of pride, be humble, those were what kept me rooting for her.

‘Til Grits Do Us Part is an entertaining and thought-provoking novel and Jennifer Rogers Spinola beautifully wraps up all of the various storylines. The ending of Shiloh’s story is absolutely perfect and I greatly enjoyed every installment in the Southern Fried Sushi series.

Laura the Bookworm - Laura Jackson

The mystery was fast-paced and well-written. It contained enough twists and turns to keep me guessing, and the whole series demonstrates the author's talent to write both character-driven and suspense-driven plots.  
God Bless America - Jan Bolton

The characters are well developed and the mystery aspect of ‘Til Grits Do Us Part is brilliantly executed.  If you are looking for a mystery, love story,  and lots of quirky laugh out load moments then the Southern Fried Sushi series is for you.  I just bought the other two books and plan to read them soon.

    Southern Fried Sushi Series

    I really enjoyed this series! The books were quick, fun reads with entertaining, endearing Southern characters and a well rounded storyline. Although the third book was my personal favorite, the entire series is worth the read if you enjoy lighthearted Christian fiction. I' ve already shared these with several friends and we' ve all enjoyed discussing the stories!

    'Til Grits Do Us Part is the third book in the Southern Fried S

    'Til Grits Do Us Part is the third book in the Southern Fried Sushi Series by Jennifer Rogers Spinola.
    This was the first book I have read by Jennifer and it will not be the last. This one made my smile, laugh out loud and at times want to cry with Shiloh the main character in the book. It can stand on its own, but I would suggest reading books #1 and #2 before this one. You get clues to the plot lines in book #1, Southern Fried Sushi and book #2 Sweet Potato Pie, but I found myself wanting to know the previous stories as well.

    Shiloh is a big city girl who has been transplanted in a small town in Virginia, which adds a whole lot of fun to her adventures in 'Til Grits Do Us Part. The "cow tipping" scene in the first chapter was so funny and took me back to when I fell in love and married a small town Virginia boy myself. The characters are well developed and the mystery aspect of ‘Til Grits Do Us Part is brilliantly executed. If you are looking for a mystery, love story, and lots of quirky laugh out load moments then the Southern Fried Sushi series is for you. I just bought the other two books and plan to read them soon.


    I received this book from Net Galley and Barbour Publishing in exchange for my honest review.

    Although Jenny Spinola's Southern Fried Sushi series might be classified as women's fiction, this sixty-six-year-old gentleman has thoroughly enjoyed each of the three books. I had the honor of reading the original version--back when it was a two hundred and some thousand word single novel--and it's been great fun seeing how Jenny's writing has progressed since then. As a Southerner, I fully appreciate her wit--especially barbs at certain Southernisms. Her characters are people it's easy to become close to and care about, her descriptions are simply amazing, and the suspense helps to balance out a well-plotted story. Be on the lookout for Yellowstone Memories (not sure when it's due out) next; it'll be another winner.

Suddenly Shiloh's boring life changes when it goes from planning her wedding to Adam to the possibility of a murderer being back in town. Twelve years ago a woman disappeared and was assumed dead. Working at The Leader, the local newspaper, Shiloh is trying to avoid taking on this story….unfortunately it seems she might not have a choice when she gets pulled into it. Willing or not. To follow the entire adventure of Shiloh P. Jacobs you will definitely want to read the first two books in this series: Southern Fried Sushi and Like Sweet Potato Pie. This book brings back all the quirky and crazy characters you’ll meet in those first two books.
