Cooking Up Trouble Mill Pond #1

Welcome to Mill Pond and small town country living filled with fresh air fresh food and plenty of fresh gossip especially when it comes to romanceIt’s impossible not to notice when someone new shows up in Mill Pond Especially someone as obviously out of place as Ian McGregor His stylish suit and fancy car scream “city slicker” And when Tessa Lawrence discovers he can’t even chan. I liked Tessa and Ian right from the beginning They were both very laid back comfortable with who they are spoke their minds Tessa has been running her bakeryfarm for the last 6 years She had a fiance once until she found another woman in his arms and since then she has pretty much sworn off men She writes romance novels during the off season and that is as much romance as she she is inclined to entertainOf course everyone else in her life from her friend Darinda to her grandma would like to see her paired off with some handsome man Ian seems to fit the bill except that he comes with a city slicker girlfriend Lily Ian has come to Mill Pond to get his new resort in working order This means lots of renovations as well as decorating Good thing the girl next door shares his interests and knows the area Lily is planning on moving in after the renovations are done and as she travels all week for work will only be around on the weekends It soon becomes clear to everyone but Ian that Lily is not a country girl nor does she seem to be able to become one I liked Judi Lynn s writing and enjoyed this first book in the Mill Pond series The second book Opposites Distract is coming out in July She referenced another author Ilona Andrews a few times in this book so I figured I would have to check her out as well I figured that if I liked Judi s writing then I would probably like someone she likes as well Magic Bites is now on hold for me at the library

Ge a tire she has no choice but to help That’s just what the locals do And when she finds out Ian’s her new neighbor of course she’s obliged to invite him to dinner tooTurns out Ian’s come from New York to open a luxury resort on the property next door to Tessa’s farm where she grows berries and sells her famous jams and delectable baked goods But despite their uickly growing. 325 StarsA feel good and sweet romance with an independent and lovely heroine this book is a good start to the Mill Pond series and nice debut of Judi Lynn This book left me with conflicting feelings that sometimes bad things happened for good reasons and vice versa that good traits in a person could both be their strength and weakness and the other way around I referred to Tessa s ex Gary and his wife it s rather convoluted but I couldn t help but to applaud him his interference in his ex s lifeTessa was very self sufficient she gave city girls a good run for their money In case of this book Lily her new neighbor s fianc e The unfortunate side of course Ian was a clueless city boy who could not change a flat tire or deal with bat in his house But I liked that he was man enough to admit his limitation and asked for help Otoh I really dislike his slowness in deciding what he really wanted There s sticking to his promise and there s plain oblivious Ian s disapproval over Tessa s closeness to other men was expected still it s frustrating and odd for me especially as everybody people of Mill Pond and even Lily were aware of itI also wish Tessa s other occupation as a romance author was shown instead of only told it could be interesting Another thing that was a let down for me was the way to Ian and Tessa s relationship It was rushed on the last few chapters and relying on other s action too muchLet s hope the next book would have powerful characters than we have here ARC is kindly provided by the publisher via NetGalley for the exchange of a fair and honest review

Friendship and temptingly close proximity Tessa plans to keep things with Ian strictly neighborly For one thing Ian’s got a fiancée who unlike Tessa doesn’t have dirt under her nails Plus Tessa knows from bitter experience that a guy this gorgeous is all too likely to break a simple country girl’s heart Even if he’s as sweet as one of her cinnamon buns and eually hard to resist. I wasn t sure how I would feel about this book but I have to say I LOVED it Yes it is a romance with the usual format boy meets girl some sort of issue issue resolved and they live happily ever after but it still grabbed me from the beginning and I finished it sooner rather than laterTessa has her issues with men Ian is the hot new neighbor but he is engaged to someone else I really liked how Tessa ran her own farm and did a lot of bakingmy mouth was watering at mention of the pies Just wish we had recipesTessa has a good friend Darinda who seems like a hoot and kept Tessa groundedIan has his own issues with his fiancee and with starting a resort but luckily Mill Pond is a small town and everyone watches out for one anotherAt the end of my book was the first chapter for the next book Looks like another enjoyable book
