“Jamie Farrell writes contemporary romance with a light and sexy touch that will have you laughing one moment, and sighing the next. I can’t recommend this book more!”– Maria Geraci, RITA-nominated author of A Girl Like You

“I urge you not to miss out on Southern Fried Blues. It’s a book I see myself going back to again and again when I need a mental vacation.” — Sacha Coutu, Gonna Need More Books

“I think it’s important to point out that I am a Yankee, Big Ten football loving, Army wife with a general loathing for Alabama football & okra but I LOVED everything about this book anyways.” — Jaime Collins, For the Love of Books by Jaime

Southern Fried Blues is a warm, hilarious and smart read and I recommend it to readers who enjoy a good contemporary romance.” — Elle, Sexy Book Times

A Yankee Lady Stuck in the South

Divorced wasn’t a label Anna Martin ever wanted.  Now she’s a thousand miles from home, underemployed, and lonely, but she’s squeezing this lemon life gave her and turning it into lemon meringue pie. Never again will she let any man—especially another military man—get in the way of her career.

A Southern Gentleman Military Officer
Jackson Davis believes in family, football, and Uncle Sam. He treats ladies right, takes his uniform seriously, and he loves his dog, but he doesn’t reckon he’s built for true love. After all, if a man good as his daddy couldn’t do it right, what chance does Jackson have?

One Undeniable Attraction
These two vulnerable souls are as different as cornbread and ketchup, but they fit together like sweet butter on hot biscuits. Short-term, they’re exactly what the other needs. But when their hearts get involved, they’re both gonna end up with a big ol’ case of Southern Fried Blues.

Maddie Mason isn’t desperate. She’s simply tired of waiting for the universe to deliver her Mr. Perfect. So she’s turning to the dating website she created, MisterGoodEnough.com, to finally find her future.

Online matchmaking is perfect for Maddie, because:

A)   History has proven she’s a poor judge of decent husband material.

B)   The dating pool in her crumbling little hometown is all but dried up.

C)   She wants babies.


Trent Sawyer is not Mr. Good Enough material, because:

A)   Twelve years ago, he stomped the stuffing out of Maddie’s naïve little teenage heart.

B)   The man might look good in a tool belt, but she’s sure he’s up to something nefarious.

C)   He doesn’t want kids. Ever.


But if Maddie were to fall for a guy like Trent, it would only be because:

A)   When he apologizes, he apologizes big.

B)   He’s fixing their little farm town, one dilapidated home at a time.

C)   Her world is a brighter place with him in it.


So should Maddie:

A)   Go for Mr. Second Best and the family she’s always wanted?

B)   Take her Mr. Almost Perfect without the babies she craves?


Either way, there’s nothing simple about settling for Mr. Good Enough.

    My Daughter Jen who knows you said to read you book. I am glad I did. When I first say it I just thought it was a “Chick” romance novel, Well it was such a funny read I couldn’t put it down. I loved it and when you put out you next book I will be sure to get a copy. Most likely two because my wife loved it to. Thanks Jamie
