Review: Sweet Jiminy by Kristin Gore

Sweet Jiminy
by Kristin Gore

Publisher: HarperCollins
Pages: 240
Format: book
Buy the Book: Amazon

Goodreads:  In the throes of a quarter-life crisis, Jiminy Davis abruptly quits law school and flees Chicago for her grandmother Willa's farm in rural Mississippi. In search of peace and quiet, Jiminy instead stumbles upon more trouble and turmoil than she could have imagined. 

She is shocked to discover that there was once another Jiminy - the daughter of her grandmother's longtime housekeeper, Lyn, who was murdered along with Lyn's husband four decades earlier in a civil rights era hate crime. With the help of Lyn's nephew, Bo, Jiminy sets out to solve the cold case, to the dismay of those who would prefer to let sleeping dogs lie.

Kritters Thoughts:  Jiminy Davis is sending herself in a new direction, but before that she goes to her grandmother's home to recenter herself.  When she returns home to find some secrets that she missed during her childhood, she decides to investigate and this small town in Mississippi may still have some issues that it was dealing with it years ago.  

I absolutely loved this book.  I love the subgenre of go home to recenter and then send your life into a new direction of women's fiction.  I love when a character goes back home and either finds out something about their family or the town or just things from the past - I always want to read more of these!  

Jiminy was a great character to follow.  She had heart and depth and just felt like someone I wanted as a friend.  I liked that she was trying to solve a mystery while also decide what is next for herself.  It wasn't all woo is me!

I want to read more from this author, this was easy to read, but wasn't fluff.  

Rating: absolutely loved it and want a sequel
