Dominic Abernathy is a real witch.
Along with his familiar, a stuffed tiger named Blaise, he
hosts a cooking show. Unfortunately for Dominic, witches
arenít the only things that are realóso are witch hunters.
Heís horrified when his producer calls and tells him that
Carter Brooks, the author of several satirical cookbooks,
will be coming on his show. Every time Brooks is in a town,
Carter Brooks doesnít believe in
witches or witch hunters. Heís tired of his crazy cousin
following him around, insisting he do his family duty and
hunt witches. Then his cousin tries to shoot him and heís
helped by Dominic Abernathy. There seems to be an instant
attraction between them.
Can there be any future for a witch and
a man from a family of notorious witch hunters?
Cooking with Ergot is a
fun, action-packed tale of magic and love. I couldnít help
but like Dominic, whose sense of humor and caring made him a
perfect match for the more serious, skeptical Carter. The
secondary characters, especially Dominicís familiar, Blaise,
and even Carterís crazy cousin, are great. Thereís a lot of
magic in the story, and some cool world-building with the
witches and hunters. I hope Luisa Prieto intends to write
some more books in this world. Cooking with Ergot
is not a realistic story by any means, but itís a lot of
fun and well worth a read.
