    Great story with enjoyable characters

    This is the second book by Heather Wardell which I downloaded free just to try. I was pleased to read this book with characters from Polar Bear tattoo. She writes so well and simply which makes it believable and enjoyable. I will definitely look for more of her books.

    Another good "Heather Wardell" book!

    I have recently become a fan of this author. I feel like part of this "family" and love how she drops subtle comments of characters in earlier books.

    So, so good!

    I've read and loved all of Heather Wardell's books: Life, Love and a Polar Bear Tatoo, Planning to Live, Go Small or Go Home, and Seven Exes are Eight Too Many. Her women's fiction features strong, independent women who are trying to balance a career, love, and the fulfillment of their personal dreams. Wardell's book are romantic without being smutty, something that I really appreciate. Once I start one of her books, I just cannot stop until I've finished it. It doesn't matter what I have going on, I'm going to sit and read until I finish the book---I have yet to make one of Wardell's books last more than one day.


    Stir Until Thoroughly Confused features one of my favorite characters from Wardell's previous books: Kegan the sexy restaurant owner. I've always wondered if Kegan got his happily ever after, especially after his heartbreak in Life, Love and a Polar Bear Tatoo, so I was thrilled when I learned Kegan got his own book. If you're new to Heather Wardell's writing, don't start with this book. It contains cameo appearances by several main characters from her previous books. You'll ruin the ends of several of her other books if you read this one first.

    This book is a first person narrative (my favorite) with Mary the self-taught chef as our narrator. She is looking for a job and wants to work at Kegan's new restaurant, Magma. Mary has an indomitable spirit which I really admire. Wardell writes her characters so well that I can easily imagine myself feeling what her characters feel. The book follows Mary in her new career, especially the ups and downs with her new boss. She's forced into a major decision at the end of the book, and that conflict resolution left me guessing the entire time. I loved the way Wardell develops her characters, especially the way they grow throughout the story.

    If you like women's fiction, romance, or you're just looking for an emotional read, I would definitely recommend Heather Wardell's books. They are excellent!

    Delicious!

    This is the second book I've read by this author and thoroughly enjoyed both. Heather is very adept at her style and genre of writing, making it easy to glide into the story and enjoy the ride...until she throws in something to tug at your emotions. All of a sudden you are feeling deeply and are moved in a way you didn't expect from such an easy read. I loved this well crafted break from the reality of the day to day business of life.

    A Sweet and Spicy Treat

    Stir Until Thoroughly Confused by Heather Wardell is a fabulous story about self discovery, determination, and love. So many of us have sacrificed our dreams while putting those of the ones we love, or loved, above our own. While a noble and caring thing to do, it's not always the right thing to do and we're left with a shattered picture of what we thought this life of ours would be. What do I do? Where do I go? How could I possibly start over? Mary had asked herself these same questions time and time again. She had always wanted to enroll at the Culinary Institute but her husband Charles had other plans. He needed to finish schooling so Mary did what she had to do in order to make that happen. She could always save up and try again, couldn't she? She soon found out that her goals played no role in the plans Charles had made for them. The plans he made for her. It was then that she knew she had to leave, and that's just what she did! Toronto was a new world to Mary and she couldn't have been happier about that! This was her life and she was going to live it her way. She set her sights on Steel, the area's most popular restaurant and was determined to get what she had wanted for so very long. Though she soon discovered she wanted much more than to be a top chef, she wanted Kegan Underwood. Kegan was tall, dark and handsome. He knew what he wanted, how he wanted it and how to get it done. Women fell for him daily but getting them to stay by his side and tolerate his controlling and passionate nature was just about impossible. Even knowing this, Mary couldn't help but be drawn to him and he to Mary. Mary's career meant everything to her and she wasn't about to risk it, but what if she didn't have to? Could they make this work and both find what they had been searching for so very long. Heather Wardell did a wonderful job grabbing the reader's attention and creating an emotional investment with the characters and storyline. This book had my attention from the start and I was easily able to identify with Mary and what she had gone through. I'm sure most readers will, with Mary or any of the other well developed characters. The relationship that forms between the two main characters is exciting and realistic. I found myself being a part of it and feeling that tension right along with them! This was a fantastic read and I highly recommend it! Hazel O'Shea Written for the Juniper Grove Blog

    It was "meh"...

    This wasn't too bad, I just found myself bored. It just kept going and I ended up skipping pages.
    Her other books are great, this one just left me bored and I couldn't wait until the end to see if something amazing happened.

    Entertaining read.

    After reading the FREE NOOK BOOK 'Life, Love, and a Polar Bear Tattoo' by Wardell, I enjoyed the re-occurrence of background characters, this time as main characters....Not necessary to read in order, but it is better that way, I think!
    It's a warm story, with romance and humor...nothing heavy and it was enjoyable to read.

    Great read!

    I fell in love with her free book, "Life, Love, and a Polar Bear Tattoo" so much that I ended buying this book. I love how she used some of the same characters. Made me think I really knew them. Absolutely fell in love with this book. Just couldn't put it down!!
