Blurb
Toby Andrews is cooking up more than a little trouble for Evan Blankenship. Because of pranks, indiscretions, and plain bad timing, his ability to work in New York’s temples of haute cuisine is a thing of the past. When Toby’s sister tells him he should look up an acquaintance whose restaurant — Le Potiron –is failing, he doesn’t have much choice.

Pretty soon he’s in bed, literally, with a cook who hates people, trying to save a restaurant that only the neighborhood mothers seem to love, and on the verge of another –possibly painful — lesson or two about what it means to be successful.

Evan hates everyone but Toby. Toby likes to stir things up. See what’s on the menu at Le Potiron, in Stirring Up Trouble.

Review
Toby is brilliant in the kitchen, but his also impulsive and undisciplined. The opening scene where everything goes wrong in the kitchen had me laughing so hard! The story just takes off from there. Failing restaurant, hot guy in a kilt, and baby food, I loved how ZA took us through Toby getting his job, starting to date Evan, to revamping the restaurant. All with laughs and giggles and let me tell you, the scene with Evan’s twin, followed up by Adam, Toby’s nephew was off the wall funny.

So a sweet and funny story that ends in a HEA, Sounds like a great afternoon read!
