Review: In A Jam by Cindy Dorminy

Category : Reviews

Synopsis:
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.

My Review:
Genre: Romance – Comedy, Southern
Stand Alone: Yes
Part of a Series: No
POV: Andie and Gunnar
Steam Level: Warm
4/5

In a Jam had me hooked from the very first line. It was cute, sweet, funny, and emotional. I loved Andie, Gunnar and all the secondary characters surrounding them. The wit, charm, and Southernisms made this book unique and fun. Cindy Dorminy is a new-to-me author. I’d definitely recommend In a Jam, especially if you like romantic comedies with a Southern twist. My only complaint is that I would have loved an epilogue.

I received an advanced copy of this book for free from the author/publisher. This is my honest and voluntary review.

  • “Thanks for being subtle.”…”What can I say? It’s a gift.”
  • That whole killing with kindness may kill me in the process.

  • The grass really will die if you spend more time worrying about it dying than you do making it thrive.
