Book #10 The Bradens, Love in Bloom Series #18
Elisabeth Nash has spent years dreaming of returning to the small town of Trusty, Colorado, where she spent summers with her favorite aunt. When she inherits her aunt’s farmette, she closes her Los Angeles pet bakery and pampering business, sure that life in Trusty will be as peaceful and as welcoming as she remembers. But being an outsider in the close-knit town proves to be very different from the happy summers she remembers from her childhood—and falling for Trusty’s hot, wealthy, and sinfully irresistible veterinarian, Ross Braden, sends the rumor mill into a frenzy.
Ross Braden learned long ago that gossip spreads faster than weeds in his small hometown, and Ross loves nothing more than his privacy. For that reason, he doesn’t date women who live in Trusty. But that was before blond, beautiful, and refreshingly honest Elisabeth Nash flew into his vet clinic seeking help for her panicked piglet and turned his comfortable life—and his heart—inside out.
Despite rumors about Elisabeth’s motives toward her aunt’s property, passion brews between Elisabeth and Ross. Every steamy kiss and every sensual touch brings the pair closer together, and when Ross helps Elisabeth try to fit into the town he adores, it makes their bond even stronger. But even Elisabeth’s efforts toward reaching the community, and the love she and Ross so desperately believe in, might not be enough for the protective small town to offer them a future.
THE BRADEN COUSINS are one of the newest additions to the LOVE IN BLOOM series.
Foster once against heats up the pages in her book, Flirting with Love. As with all her books in any series ( better check them all out, seriously don't miss a single one) they are good stand alone books, but that much more enjoyable if you pick up a couple, or all of them. They're worth it you won't be let down!
Elisabeth Nash totally surprised me! I'll say that right now, reading the quick preview of the book I mentally had a picture going about a city girl being tossed into small town life and completely out of her element but I was completely wrong. I fell in love with this character straight from the get go. She's down to earth, spirited and sweet, and with a hot Braden thrown into the mix- oh snap!
Elisabeth starts out living in LA, truly missing her summer vacation hot spot with her Aunt in Trusty Colorado, so when she inherits her Aunts place there's no question or hesitation what so ever to pack up and head right for the small town. While she has always enjoyed her summers in the town, living there makes to be a different challenge, up until she meets the hot local veterinarian Ross Braden.
Gossip is something Ross can spend a lifetime without and he's learned it the hard way. He values his privacy and wants nothing to do with women in the small town because of it, until that is a blonde beauty catches his eye. He wastes no time making his motives clear with Elisabeth and he knows if he doesn't step up someone else will in no time at all. Things spark up and click into place right away with the hot duo, and there's no going back once that first step is taken, but will their amazing chemistry be enough to withstand the streaming rumors?
Will they be able to keep the heat going as the town looks down on Elisabeth? Can the townsfolk see who she really is just as Ross has? Or will the town tear them apart before they even have a chance? You'll have to find out and pick up a copy of Flirting with Love to find out!

This recipe and the pictures come from my Father. He has Deep Fried Turkey over the last few years and it always looks so good when he posts about it on Facebook. Since I have no fryer myself I asked him to contribute this year. Maybe one year I'll have the guts to do it myself but for now I leave the perfect deep frying up to him. Hope you all enjoy!
Don't forget to check oil temp and the temp within the bird- Turkey is done when it reaches 175 – 180 Degrees F
Directions for Deep Fried Turkey
- To start, take the wrapper off of the turkey, and remove and discard the neck and giblets.
- Deep-fry your turkey outside on a flat surface, far away from homes, garages, wooden decks, etc.
- To determine how much oil is needed for frying, place the thawed turkey in the fryer.
- Add water until the top of the turkey is barely covered.
- Remove the turkey, allowing the water to drain from the turkey back into the fryer.
- Measure and mark the water line, and use that line as a guide when adding oil to the propane fryer.
- Pat the turkey dry with paper towels.
- Add oil to the fryer (based on the water line).
- Preheat oil in the fryer to 350° F.
- While the oil is heating, prepare your turkey with any seasonings, marinades, or injected flavor that you desire.
- I use Tony Chachere’s Cajun seasoning as a rub on the outside of the turkey, and their Cajun Butter injectable, injected into the turkey, Then I put a whole Vidalia Onion inside, along with 5 or 6 Garlic cloves
- When the oil is hot, turn the burner off and slowly lower the turkey into the hot oil. (to prevent flare up) Slowly lowering the basket helps prevent the oil from bubbling over. Turn the burner back on.
- Cook the turkey about 3 to 4 minutes per pound. The internal Temperature should be between 175 – 180 Degrees F.
- When the turkey is done, Turn the burner off, then slowly lift it from the pot and place it in a pan or on paper towels to drain
TIPS & SAFETY
** Always follow your fryers directions **
Be sure to thaw your turkey completely before deep frying
Be sure to remove excess fat from the bird
Do not stuff the bird for deep frying
Always be careful submerging and taking the turkey out of the oil, this is HOT oil!
Make sure your fryer is solid level surface
Don't over fill the fryer with oil!
Always use well insulated pot holders , consider long sleeve shirt as well to protect against splatters.
Don't use around flammable materials
Don't leave fryer unattended, a small amount of oil coming into contact with the fryers burner can cause a fire!
