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.

Critic Reviews

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

I loved this book - a nice surprise!

This book was recommended by Audible. So, I took the bait. I loved this book. I especially enjoyed the author reading her own book with her Jersey accent.

Thank you!!

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!

The Best Combo of Northern Attitude and Southern Charm

This book is incredible. It’s like sitting down talking to a friend, only without the awkward silences and putting your foot in your mouth. It is the best combination of Jersey attitude and Southern Charm.

Road Trip Entertainment

On a road trip with my 20 year old daughter to set up her new apartment at college. 16 hour in a car can require more than music. I said hey I listen to this gal all the time and she has a book. Daughter is skeptical... so I play a cafeetawk, she was sold. We laughed, we cried, we cheered thank you, Jamie Primak Sullivan for your brutal honesty and humor. Hours well spent with my independent, strong will, adventurer. The Southern Education of a Jersey Girl was wonderful.
