Can she cook up a recipe for love?

Jolie Gardener, personal chef by day, aspiring romance writer by night, likes to talk and does it a lot. She has to because if she stops, all the pain, disillusionment, and abandonment of her AWOL mother, question-mark father, and foster-care childhood will rise up like a chocolate soufflé on steroids, sweeping away the fragile infrastructure of her life.But she's fine. Really. She is.Or so she thinks.

Todd Best isn't fine. He knows it. And doesn't care.After his wife died-the woman who believed in him when he was a struggling artist-he put painting aside, moved from their home, and lost himself in the minutiae of daily life. Alone. Private. The way he likes it.The last thing he needs is some chatty cook seeping into the perfectly bland canvas of his life.Or so he thinks.

So when Jonathan, a guardian-angel-in-training, turns himself into a kitten to help these two lonely souls find a happily ever after together, it ought to be a piece of cake.Or so HE thinks...

Meet the Author

PRISM Award and Golden Leaf Award-winning author, Judi Fennell, has had her nose in a book and her head in some celestial realm all her life, including those early years when her mom would exhort her to "get outside!" instead of watching Bewitched or I Dream of Jeannie on television. So she did-right into Dad's hammock with her Nancy Drew books.

These days she's more likely to have her nose in her laptop and her head (and the rest of her body) at her favorite writing spot, but she's still reading, whether it be her latest manuscript or friends' books.

Author of "fairy tales with a twist," pun-filled, tongue-in-cheek, contemporary paranormal romances, starting with the Tritone Trilogy about Mermen and the Humans who love them, her Bottled Magic Series about genies and magic and falling in love, and now her Once-Upon-A-Time Romances, those twisted fairy tales that were the inspiration for her tagline, "fairy tales with a twist."

Great read!!

Once again, Judi Fennell has written the perfect romance. This is a must-read for all fantasy romance fans. Jolie and Todd both have great sadness in their lives and yet come together and overcome that to create great joy. Judi's characters come alive on the page and you laugh with them and cry with them. I have read all of Judi's previous books and this one is definitely my favorite to date. I cannot wait to read the others in this series. Thanks Judi for another great book!
