Description - Dixieland Sushi by Cara Lockwood

Cara Lockwood became a bestselling author with her debut novel I DO (BUT I DON'T) - now a TV movie-and kept the momentum going with PINK SLIP PARTY. Now she's back and better than ever with a delightfully offbeat tale about big fat weddings, the burdens of love, and the clash of cultures. Jen Nakamura Taylor has always felt like a fish out of water. With her dark, exotic, and hard-to-place looks, she got used to standing out in the small Southern town where she grew up. Her whole life has been a balancing act between her Japanese-American mother's family and her father's decidedly offbeat white Southern clan. Now, living hundreds of miles away from Dixieland in Chicago, she juggles an often demeaning job at a local news station with the relationship she shares with Richard, her commitment-phobic boyfriend. But her already odd and rather stressful life is further upset when word comes that her mother is getting remarried and wants Jen to come home for the wedding - a grand affair that promises to put Scarlett O'Hara to shame. All too aware of the circus she's about to walk into, Jen prepares for the worst - and finds instead all the proof she needs to understand just how lucky she really is. Full of delightful surprises and plenty of colourful, quirky characters, DIXIELAND SUSHI is an irresistible read from an author who gets better with every book.
