Andie Carson has to do three things to inherit her grandmother’s lottery winnings—sober up, spend a month running her grandmother’s Georgia coffee shop, and enter homemade jam in the county fair. If she can’t meet those terms, the money goes to the church, and Andie gets nothing. She figures her tasks will be easy enough, and once she completes them, Andie plans to sell the shop, take the money, and run back to Boston.
After a rough breakup from his crazy ex-fiancée, Officer Gunnar Wills decides to take a hiatus from women. All he wants is to help make his small town thrive the way it did when he was a kid. But when wild and beautiful Andie shows up, Gunnar’s hesitant heart begins to flutter.
Gunnar knows that Andie plans to leave, but he’s hoping to change her mind, fearful that if her coffee shop closes, Main Street will fold to the big-box corporations and forever change the landscape of his quaint community. But convincing her to stay means getting close enough to risk his heart in the process. Even though Gunnar makes small-town life seem a little sweeter, Andie has to decide if she’s ready to turn her world upside down and give up big-city life. One thing’s for sure—it’s a very sticky situation.
I received this book for free from Author in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
I fell in love with this book and the ensemble of crazy, quirky but lovable characters. I laughed out loud at the first sentence in this book, Andie has yet again overdone the partying and finds herself once again in a jam! Her guardian angel/protector Tinsley comes to her aid but this time her life is about to change, for the better? I thought so! Did Andie? Absolutely not! What unfolds is a laugh out loud tale of a small southern town full of characters that I wanted to meet. Andie finds out about true friendship and love. Love? Yes her love interest Gunnar-what a name- is hot , hot , hot! Who in her right mind coulkd resist him? It is not smooth sailing for Andie and Gunnar , there are some hilarious scenes and some steamy ones as well. In A Jam is what Andie finds herself in many times in this book.
I devoured this in one sitting and was actually bummed when I finished this story. I want more of these characters and I am hoping for a sequel so fingers crossed, the author will write a story about Mel and Regina, Andies’ new found friends.
