In Lieu of Eating

Chef Clara “Honey” Honeycutt’s perfected world, her mastery of order and irreproachable design and presentation came to a crippling halt on the day her father confessed to the murder of esteemed food critic Leonard Pruitt. But as a year clicks away with no answers, Honey falls into obsession and addiction, spiraling her nightmare into an unrecognizable image of who she thought she was, who her father is, and a dangerous secret that threatens to destroy her and everyone she loves. A stand-alone second novel with cameos from Jami Amerine’s beloved debut, Five Minutes on Charles Street, In Lieu of Eating, will delight and keep you guessing to the very last course!

Five Minutes on Charles Street

It happened in just five minutes . . .

Saraphina Landry-Shay is an independent, smart, “stupid-happy” New York lawyer on a mission to bring justice to the wrongly imprisoned. But on her very first solo case, she is barely able to stay upright in her power chic stilettos. Continually distracted by the vibrant characters of the West Village, Charles Street apartment, and her dashing boss Lance Vega, Saraphina must decide if she wants to maintain her illusion of happy while simultaneously watching her life run wildly out of control. When some of her quirks prove costly and real danger is the threat, Saraphina must choose between her idea of happy or the consequences of her misguided, feeble control—choices that could very well cost the happiness or lives of herself and the people she has come to love.

Stolen Jesus

Stolen Jesus: An Unconventional Search for the Real Savior

Raised in the Mormon church, Jami Amerine was excommunicated for apostasy before she was even old enough to be baptized. This experience left her curious about all things religious and set her on a path that would introduce her to many apparitions of Jesus over the years.

It wasn’t until Jami stole a portrait of Jesus from a local YMCA storage closet and gave Him a home on her mantel that she began to ponder why the bad stuff of religion tends to stick the hardest. In Stolen Jesus Jami sets out to strip all her preconceived notions of Jesus to discover His genuine character.  In doing so she discovers the real Jesus when she stops trying to fit Him in a box and allows Him to be her all-in-all.

Praise for Jami Amerine

“It takes good writing to hold my attention. I only read authors who entertain me, share authentically, impart deep wisdom and are relatable. Jami Amerine is every bit of this and more. She’s every woman, and I find my story in hers with each word she writes. Who else can find herself cleaning sticky floors one minute and in the backseat of a cop car the next? She’s my kind of girl, and I’ll read anything she writes. You should too.”
—Carey Scott, author of Unafraid

“In Sacred Grounds, Sticky Floors, Jami Amerine expertly weaves together touching (and often hilarious) personal anecdotes with sound biblical teaching, creating a beautiful tapestry of grace.

This is not just a book about parenting. It is a book about freedom. A book abounding in grace. If you have ever found yourself longing for meaning among the mess of life, Sacred Ground, Sticky Floors is sure to encourage and uplift your soul.”

“To be a parent is to fail again and again, yet you can’t quit. Little lives literally depend on your ability to keep going. Parenting is the toughest gig around, which is why I’m thankful for champions like Jami Amerine.

Hilarious and heart-breaking, Sacred Ground, Sticky Floors is a guilt-busting journey to freedom. I wish I had read it years ago.”
