All Irishmen love to talk, and Heather Mahaffey's father is no exception. After a few drinks of ale at a town party and wanting to impress a wealthy rancher, Mr. Mahaffey brags on how well his daughter can cook. Now the whole town knows Heather can't boil water, but Philippe St. Pierre isn't aware of it. In desperation and seeking employment, Heather knocks on the St.Pierre door to apply for the position of cook. The housekeeper wants to throw her out, but after looking at this little beauty, Philippe decides to give her a chance.
When Heather goes into this beautiful, modernized kitchen, she drools over all of the equipment, but doesn't have a clue what to do with any of it. So....when a mysterious stranger comes calling and makes her an offer she can't refuse, he does the cooking and cleaning up and she does the serving! What this pretty little miss doesn't understand is that you don't get something for nothing. This fellow cooking up the gourmet dinners has a plan she isn't going to like; he is really cooking up trouble!
Ms. Craig gives readers another glimpse of the humor she is famous for, and you'll chuckle and grin to the end of the last page. It's a delight to see this mysterious stranger get bested, and it's fun to watch Philippe fall in love with this cutie. Gee, even the cover is wonderful as it shows that mischievious smile on Heather's face. COOKING UP TROUBLE will lift your spirits and leave you with a smile. I highly recommend it for an evening of fun.
Heather begins her new job in despair but help shows up in the form of a handsome stranger, D A Bologh. He is charming yet mysterious and offers Heather a deal.....he will cook the meals for one month if she will agree to give something small in return. She eagerly accepts the deal as she knows she desires to remain in her new position as she is attracted to her employer.
Philippe had heard the talk in town of his new cook's disastrous exploits in the kitchen so was simply amazed to taste the first meal served to him. He is pleasantly surprised and with great finesse, praises her and eagerly looks forward to her future culinary skills. He of course notices her beauty and thinks how much he would like to sample her delights in the bedroom as well.
What a far out story! I did not find it amusing as much as I did intriguing. The story had the paranormal touch that I enjoy very much. And the interaction between the hero and heroine was delightful. As was the mother and son reconciliation. Nifty story....with a very satisfying ending!
