Like Sweet Potato Pie: A Review

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.

I am eager to see what happens next!
