Missy may have a knack for fixing cars, but she sure can't cook.
Missy Stuart is humiliated when she burns dinner for the cute yet outspoken new auto parts rep. But when he suggests to her father that she should take cooking lessons from the old ladies down at his church, she wants to crawl under a car and die. When she dutifully accompanies her father to church, she finds she has more to learn than a bunch of recipes.

Because tales should be told.
Yes, this is a fabulous book. It is written skillfully in that you don't much like the Bible salesman at first. You see him very much through Missy's eyes as a self-righteous little twerp. The author changes your view of him right along with Missy's.
Missy and her father are tied for my favorite character. Although Curler Head is definitely in the running. Missy is a kind and devoted daughter living with her father after her mother's untimely death. She is hardworking, spunky and a fabulous at fixing cars. It is difficult not to like her. Her father, John, is a gruff, charismatic character. He is an excellent hands-on father who cares deeply for his children.
She gives an excellent performance and brings each of the characters to life. She is very good at both the male and female characters and switches between the two seamlessly.
The book is very well written with many moving scenes. My favorite would definitely be when Missy first meets "the Bible salesman." I also really enjoyed the fishing scene with Curler Head.
This is an excellent book. It is clean and family friendly. I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review.
This is a wholesome story of two people who fall in love the old fashioned way; slow and with wise supervision. It takes place in the seventies, which takes me back to my childhood. The descriptions of simple, country living rings true. You become invested in both characters, hoping they will find love based on a deep inner connection and not superficial attributes. I loved it.
I liked that both characters valued their parents opinions. They did not make decisions without wise counsel.
All of the scenes with the main character in cooking class. The elderly women she was leaning from reminded me of women I grew up knowing. They were so funny.
I felt very sorry for the main character and her father when they reminisced about her mother's passing away.

For the sake of avoiding a spoiler... lets just say... acceptance :)
Very Wholesome and enjoyable. Definitely worth the read.
Well written story that keeps you listening. The narrator carried the story and characters through nicely and was a pleasure to listen to. I don’t usually listen to books in this category, but will be looking for more from this author in the future.

I love to listen as often as I can! I like young adult, Christian, mystery...whatever...just needs to be a good book and a good narrator!
This story is full of old fashioned courtship and country charm and is a heartwarming romance. Recommend.
This was a very enjoyable story , very sweet and believable. I like how wholesome it was and wish it could have been longer! Hopefully there's a sequel to it!
l really enjoyed this book. gal who works with her father as a mechanic on cars and knows about what is wrong with an engine by listening to it and can give someone stranded on the roadside help to get them to her dad's shop for repair. she is an awful cook (gee what can you expect since she lost her mom as a little girl and had no one to teach her). she goes fishing with her dad who became a christian and tells everyone, he is so happy. a fellow she has rescued on the roadside several times.....well let's just say it is a sweet romance of two generations. AND no illicit sex...yea. recommend highly!!!
I couldn't download properly the book because of its length. The storyline is fair but some sessions of the book could have been made shorter so as to retain the readers attention all the time. The readers voice didn't put enough inflections, change of voice to make story come really alive.
Fried Chicken and Gravy is a sweet, innocent romance. As the title suggests, this is about cooking, and it is also set in the 1970's in a more innocent time period. Sherri Schoenborn Murray's writing flows and the narrator, Stacey Glemboski, flows right along with her. Christian values ring true and its nice to watch the characters grow in their faith. I will be looking for more audio books from this author.
