My Friend Carol's Kitchen Affair

Sounds pretty juicy, eh? WELL GET YOUR MIND OUT OF THE GUTTER! It's a book!

Ha, ha! Gotcha! A KITCHEN AFFAIR is a romance by my mystery writer friend Carol Preflatish. Here's the blurb:

When culinary student Jenny Marshall struggles to pay her tuition, she decides to become a Personal Chef to make ends meet. The most eligible bachelor in town, Derek James, who also happens to be a millionaire, has a crisis. Two days before his Thanksgiving dinner party, his cook has to quit due to a family emergency. Desperate, he hires Jenny to cook for his party and there's chemistry from the start. He likes her, she likes him, but Colleen Michaels, a manager at his company, has set her sights on Derek also and she does everything she can to sabotage his relationship with Jenny. Everyone thinks Colleen is the perfect match for Derek; everyone that is, except Derek. He desperately wants Jenny in his life. However, Colleen has other plans to keep that from happening. What lengths will she go to in order to keep Derek and Jenny apart?

I generally don't read romances, but OF COURSE I love anything with a foodie theme, and Carol also wrote one of my favorite cookbooks,  MASTERS AND DISASTERS OF COOKING. So I expect I'll be downloading A KITCHEN AFFAIR to my jolly old eReader one of these fine days.

Meanwhile, here's a bit about Carol. It doesn't say that we've been friends for years, but we have. :)


Carol Preflatish knew at an early age that she loved to write. In high school and college, her favorite classes were composition and creative writing. It wasn't until after she married and then became a parent that she decided to pursue it seriously. Always loving a good mystery, she's constantly thinking up ideas for future books.

Carol lives in southern Indiana, sharing her log cabin in the woods with her husband and their cat and dog. When not writing, she loves to read, watch football, and go camping with her husband.

Oh wow, what a surprise to see your post today. Thanks, Marian. I appreciate the support and yes, we have been friends for YEARS. Just a warning, you may gain weight just reading about all the wonderful dishes my chef prepares in the book. Thanks, again.

I'm hoping you include at least SOME recipes?

Not in the book, but I've been posting a recipe on every stop on my blog tour that just finished. You can find the links to the blogs here, http://carolpre.blogspot.com/2013/01/upcoming-appearances.html
