Like Sweet Potato Pie (Southern Fried Sushi #2) by Jennifer Rogers Spinola

Book Description:  Witness as Shiloh’s new life in Virginia crumbles around her. The house she inherited from her mother is much more than a place to live—it represents Shiloh’s changed life and what little financial security she has. But her half sister is contesting their mother’s will and the IRS is threatening to take it for back taxes. She’s also discovering God’s ideal when it comes to love and romance. When Mr. Right shows up will she recognize God’s hand or let circumstances and prejudices blind her heart to the love of her life?

My Review:  I missed the first book in the Southern Fried Sushi but I'm not sure it mattered (even though I plan to go back and read the #1).  I love the cover of this book and the title!  If you're from the south you know what sweet potato pie is. 
This read is somewhat like sweet potato pie...soft and delicious packing a slight punch of cinnamon spice.  It's that slight punch that always gets.you!  
I couldn't help but like Shiloh.  She hangs in there...she hangs tough but better yet she hangs on to her faith and hangs on to God will provide and take care of her.
As a lot single women trying to survive on her own always hoping Mr. Right is around the corner, Shiloh doesn't always see the "right" guy in the "right" light.  But God has a way of opening our eyes to the truth and what will best benefit us.
Then there's the twist of family/sisterly woes.  Sisters are always sisters and sibling rivalry takes on a whole new twang.
A fun, light, faith-filled read! And a great Thanksgiving read!
