Publisher's Summary

Jaime Primak Sullivan, a Jersey-bred, tough-as-nails PR maven - and unlikely transplant in an upscale suburb of Birmingham, Alabama - has spent her entire life crossing the line: whether she's pushing the boundaries of what proper Southern ladies consider to be "polite behavior" or literally traversing the Mason-Dixon line in the name of love. She isn't afraid to say what everyone is thinking when it comes to love, sex, friendship, and many other topics that are all too often sugar-coated in polite Southern company. But when a meet-cute scenario right out of a Nora Ephron movie upends her life, Jaime finds herself a reluctant "knish out of water", smack-dab in the Deep South, starting a life with her new husband, the perfect Southern gentleman.

In The Southern Education of a Jersey Girl, Jaime shares hard-learned lessons on Southern etiquette, deep-fried foods, college football, and matters of the heart while living in the heart of Dixie, with her quintessential ball-busting and side-splitting Jersey twist.

What the Critics Say

"Sullivan's self-deprecating humor makes her a comfortable, chatty companion.... It's hard to resist Sullivan's spunky, outgoing personality." (Kirkus)

    "Absolutely fantastic entertaining and wonderful!!!"

    Even though I pre-ordered this book I just didn't have a chance to sit down and read it being a mother of three and working two full-time jobs and owning a horse so I bought it off of audible.com and listened to it on my way to and from work...and then I ended up bringing in it in the house with me and listening to it until the book was over!!! I loved and appreciated the honest story of her life and also the fact that she was the boys I could hear her emotion much better than if another boys had narrated her book... I'm a fan for life thank you Jaime for this gift

    "YOU NEED TO READ (LISTEN) TO THIS!"

    I am a huge fan of Cawfeetalk! I love this woman-she is so real and hysterical. I laughed out loud and sobbed all within the first few chapters. She's real and no bullshit. The whole time she's talking about her & Michaels dynamic I kept thinking, oh my gosh this is me and my husband. Then when I realized that we were both Libras a light bulbs went off! Jaime you are my soul sister. Get this book, you won't be disappointed

    "Share this book! Share Jaime!"

    This book made me laugh, made me cry and made me realize how truly wonderful differences in people are and how to recognize the beauty that is difference. Jaime, as always, is refreshingly open and honest. If you are wanting to meet a friend through her words, grab The Southern Education of a Jersey girl and read it, then enjoy your coffee and relish the learning from your new friend in Cawfeetawk!

    "Loved this beyond intriguing story! Listened twice"
    Where does The Southern Education of a Jersey Girl rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is one of my favorite audio books so far, along with one of my favorites from Dolly Parton. Jamie is hypnotic to listen to and I could not put it down. There is so much going on and I truly love her forthright honesty. Humility, sincerity and love are major components in this book.


    Any additional comments?

    Please keep writing! Would love to hear more from you!

    "It's the voice"

    I listen to Jaime's videos on you tube and they bring me such joy. They are honest and raw and real... like love/hate pretty/ugly real. The daily issues and feelings women have in various flavors and intensity. When hearing about the book on audible and that Jaime narrated it, I had to have it. It's the voice inflection that adds to the depth of feeling in all her journeys. I think it's called 'Jersey'
