Cooking Up Trouble
Cooking Up Trouble is the first book in the Mill Pond series. This book introduces you to Mill Pond, a little town where people enjoy fresh food, air, and country living. The city also comes with a good dose of new gossip on romance. The residents of Mill Pond are quick to notice Ian McGregor. In his fancy car and stylish suits, Ian looks out of place in this sleepy town. Well, it seems that there is a lot that Ian doesn’t know about country living, and this includes changing a tire. When Tessa Lawrence realizes that her neighbor is having trouble with his tire, she offers to help. Tessa goes ahead to invite Ian for dinner.

Once the two get talking, Ian reveals that he is from New York, and he is looking to set up a luxury resort in Mill Pond. The resort will be located right next to the farm Tessa uses to grow berries for her jams and baked goods. Their friendship continues to grow as the two interact, but Tessa is keen to keep their relationship neighborly. After all, Ian has a fancy girlfriend, who is nothing like Tessa. Having had her fair share of heartbreaks, Tessa knows all too well that men like Ian are simply bad news. However, Ian is quite charming, and it is evident that resisting him will be one hard task.

Tessa and Ian are easy to love. Both are comfortable in their skins, and they are not afraid to speak their minds. Tessa is successful in her own right. The hardworking woman has a running business that she has been managing single-handedly for six years. While she once had a fiancé, Tessa has stayed away from the dating scene since she found the man she wanted to marry another woman in his arms. In her free time, Tessa prefers to write romance novels as opposed to going out and interacting with the few eligible bachelors in Mill Pond.

Cooking up Trouble is a sweet romance story that you can read when you are in the mood for a book that will warm your heart. Tessa is a great heroine in the story, and her self sufficiency can only mean that she beats the city girls’ hands down. Ian, on the other hand, is a visionary, and his love for this small town is evident from the start. It is admirable to note that he is willing to ask for help where necessary and appreciate those who come to his rescue. The small town also gives this story quite an edge, and this, together with the great flow, turns the novel into an intriguing piece. If you are a fan of contemporary romance stories, you can be sure that you are going to love this book.
