New Release and Review: In a Jam by Kate Canterbary

In a Jam by Kate Canterbary is now live!


She’s the one who got away. She just doesn’t know it.

When Shay Zucconi’s step-grandmother died, she left Shay a tulip farm—under two conditions.

First, Shay has to move home to the small town of Friendship, Rhode Island. Second—and most problematic since her fiancé just called off the wedding—Shay must be married within one year. 

Marriage is the last thing in the world Shay wants but she’ll do anything to save the only real home she’s ever known.

Noah Barden loved Shay Zucconi back in high school. Not that he ever told her. He was too shy, too awkward, too painfully uncool to ask out the beautiful, popular girl. 

A lifetime later, Noah is a single dad to his niece and has his hands full running the family business. That old crush is the farthest thing from his mind.

Until Shay returns to their hometown and turns his life upside down. 


I don’t know if I can properly articulate how much I love this book. First you have my kryptonite of book boyfriends, a grumpy, grumbly guy who has the biggest heart and is completely head over heels for the FMC. What makes him even better is that he’s shy and awkward most of the time, but behind closed doors he’s bossy and dirty in the best possible way. Next, the characters in this book feel very real. The vulnerabilities they have, the issues they are dealing with, their experiences. They are so relatable. You feel like you want to be their friend and be a part of this little town. The cherry on top was a sassy six year old who cusses like a sailor..or rather a pirate. Noah and Shay are amazing, but adding Gennie into the mix makes this perfect.

This story is beautiful and heartwarming. It is funny and spicy. It is emotional and entertaining. It felt like a winding country road where you were never quite sure where it was going to take you, but you knew it was going to be a beautiful ride.

If you’ve never read this author then you need to read this book now. Kate Canterbary is one of the best when it comes to complex characters that are relatable and believable. She is also the queen of grumpy guys. If you’ve been a long time fan, Jam Man is more than we could’ve ever dreamed he could be.
