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.
In A Jam by Cindy DorminyAndie was alone in the world with a drinking habit that was out of control and a Boston policeman who knew her favorite coffee for the morning after. When she awoke with a raging hangover, a call from a Georgia attorney saying her deceased grandmother had left her an estate worth millions of dollars, well, she wasn’t so sure this wasn’t an alcohol induced hallucination! And, if something is too good to be true…
But it was true, the grandmother she hadn’t seen in years, had left her millions and a coffee shop, but it all came with a caveat. Clean up her act, run the coffee shop for a month and enter homemade jam into the contest at the county fair and don’t forget to attend church, either. Sounds simple, a month of her time to become a wealthy young woman, no great shakes, right? Then, just take the money and run!
Andie wasn’t expecting this hole-in-the-wall southern town to get under her skin or the small town sheriff to find a place in her heart.
She was supposed to be under his watchful eye, police courtesy between departments, but when Gunnar Wills, a card carrying member of the “he man woman haters club,” caught sight of the spitfire from the big city, he knew he had to rein in his heart, pronto.
Let the games begin! Like a fish out of water, Andie is about to face the biggest challenge of her life, her heart is giving her all kinds of trouble and how the heck does she make jam, anyway?
Cindy Dorminy’s IN A JAM is a delightfully sweet, crazy romantic tale that will leave readers smiling at the small town antics and the see-saw romance between two hearts that collide with the force of a tsunami! Fun reading with just enough tension and outside interference to make you wonder, how will Andie get out of the “jam” she finds herself in? Will dollar signs or hearts win the girl? Only one way to find out! Light-hearted reading to brighten your day!
