It’s LAYWERS IN LOVE! What’s not to love?

Camilla Sweeten is serious about her job in the County Attorney’s office. She’s even working up the courage to ask her boss to consider her for promotion to deputy.

Then, into court walks the gorgeous Zane Holyoake, and disaster strikes—in the form of a total brain fog right in the middle of her closing arguments. In front of both her boss and the meanest bear of a judge in the county, Camilla hears herself saying, “Like, I totally made my point,” as though she’d flown in from1980s California in a time machine airplane.

Now her boss will never consider her for deputy—especially since Zane turns out to be a new lawyer, possibly brought in to steal her dream job.

But when a notorious criminal is caught in their county, Camilla must focus on getting the thief convicted and not on Zane, who smells heavenly and is bent on distracting her with lunch offers and wacky Boy Scout stories that may melt her many resolves.

It’s going to take incredible willpower to ignore this attractive nuisance.

The Lost Art, A Romantic Comedy

TheLostArt_Cover

Dowdy art exhibit coordinator Ava Young is happy with her man-suits and sensible clogs. She likes the way they clip-clop on the museum’s tile floor. But they don’t win her any lovelorn looks from her office crush. In fact, the handsome new guy calls her “sir” when they first meet. Oh, well. She’s always known the only way a guy would take a second look at her was if she was the only person in the room. And on fire.

But after her workplace crush devastates her by, frankly, calling her something super-duper mean, Ava is ready to make some drastic changes inside and out, even if it means giving up chocolate, or taking hilariously out-of-date but strangely wise-sounding advice on femininity from a 1959 book on “How to Snare a Modern Man.”

Either way, she’d better hurry because when a priceless art exhibit gets a theft threat on Ava’s watch, a billionaire bachelor and a handsome FBI agent will be taking a good, long look at the art.

And at Ava.

Big in Japan

Buck Cooper, huge Texas nobody, goes to Japan and accidentally becomes a sumo wrestler.

 

Praise for BIG IN JAPAN:

“I don’t just like it I love it. A novel everyone from middle aged cowboys to adolescent girls are sure to love.” –Eric Bishop

“I purchased the full book off of reading a sample. By the end of the day, I was half way through the story, caught up in the 300 pound main character, Buck, who joins his parents on a business trip to Japan. Buck is the perfect awkward unsung hero, but his quirks are endearing, and his character very relatable. Great humor throughout as well, some serious thought-provoking events, as well as a sweet romance. Really, everything rolled into one. ” –Heather B. Moore, award-winning author

“Griffith gives us a different picture of Japan than most of us have previously seen. This is not the cherry blossoms and tea houses version, but the crowded shops, strange food, political maneuvering, and grunginess of that country’s national sport. Murder, blackmail, and danger create an intense plot that will keep many readers on the edge of their chairs or burning the lights far into the night. Though there is a nice romance included in this novel, I wouldn’t assign this one to the Romance genre. It’s more high action sports drama. It’s also a study in human ethics and has a broad appeal to men as much, perhaps more, than to women.”         –Jennie Hansen, Meridian Magazine

“In ‘Big In Japan,’ Griffith weaves a delightfully entertaining tale of change, bravery and true love in the life of a lonely young man trying to overcome an austere and challenging environment. … Readers will be engaged as they follow the tragedies and triumphs of an endearingly kind and honest young man in the ‘Land of the Rising Sun.'” —Deseret News

“I finished reading your book yesterday while driving (well, obviously I was just riding and not driving, that would be dangerous…) home from California.  I had to use the little visor light to finish after it got dark which always annoys [my husband], but it was too good to stop before I knew how it ended!  What a great story!” –Charlotte Alexander

With the support of friends, Susannah puts her future on the line to open up downtown Salt Lake City s first all-chocolate café, The Chocolate Bar, a place where scrumptious conversations and delectable desserts abound.

In the midst of all this, social turmoil hits Susannah when she catches the interest of the city s most eligible bachelor just as her long-lost love returns to town–with intentions of marrying anyone but Susannah.

Can Plan C offer Susannah her just desserts?

    One quick question. Why is Big in Japan the only book that doesn’t have your middle name?

  2. Jennifer Griffith | Reply

    Thanks for asking, Rachel. It’s because in the earlier books I was writing for a different publisher. When I jumped to Jolly Fish Press last year I decided to simplify!
