Contest: Win 2 Books!!


My dear friend, and fellow chef's wife, Jessica Conant-Park has written the fourth edition of her Gourmet Girls Mystery Series, FED UP.

"Part-time student Chloe Carter is planning her best friend’s wedding, working for her parents—and glued to her chef boyfriend, Josh, as he competes to star in a new TV series. The premise:Josh hijacks unsuspecting grocery shoppers and prepares them gourmet dinners. Everything’s going great—until one shopper drops dead.With the cameras on him from the beginning, Josh is obviously innocent, but Chloe wonders: Was it one of Josh’s competitors?

a food felon…"

In the early days it would have been titled "Home Alone" but now we've got kids so it doesn't apply anymore! A more appropriate title now would be "The Scent of a Chef & More: Garlic, Onions & Tongs"
Thanks - it was fun thinking of titles!
