Editorial Reviews

Review

"A delightful heroine, a tortured hero, a whispering castle, an ancient curse for spice, a deliciously rich, warm Irish stew." -- Bestselling Author, JoAnn Ross

"A not to be put down, must read book!" -- The Best Reviews

"Deb Stover cooks up a satisfying contemporary gothic style romance, chock full of humor, passion, and mystery. Bon appétit." -- Paranormal Romance Reviews

From the Author

Mulligan Stew is a book of my heart. When I met the characters, I fell in love, and when I met Ireland herself, I was lost. Please join me in helping the Mulligans meet their destinies. I hope you enjoy meeting them as much as I have. Slainte!

More About the Author

At the tender age of four, Deb Stover declared her candidacy to become the first female President of the United States. She took a detour to play Lois Lane, and penned her first Letter to The Editor at age eleven. The Lois Lane gig suited her, so she stuck with it for a while, but in the end she couldn't bring herself to blow Clark Kent's cover for the Big Story. Then she fell in love with and married her own real American Hero, so Superman was free to continue fighting for justice (seriously, what is Clark doing about the dearth of phone booths these days?).

Considering her extensive personal experience with real heroes, redirecting her passion for writing from journalism to Romance Novels seemed a natural progression. Since publication of Shades of Rose in 1995, she has received dozens of awards for her work, which includes over twenty titles in a variety of languages and formats.

A native of Wichita, Kansas, Deb and her family have lived in five states, but after her Hero Husband's death, she made the decision to follow the Yellow Brick Road back to live near her Hero Dad in Kansas. After all "there's no place like home."

Of course, there's still the unfinished matter of her presidential campaign, but first she has many more stories left to write....

"Deb Stover just took flight on wings of magic and landed in Ireland in a pot of Mulligan Stew hot enough to singe your eyebrows off with her extraordinary characters that jump off the pages into your heart. This book has everything necessary to keep you flipping the pages because from the moment you meet Bridget and Riley you know there are other forces at work to bring them together to break the curse on the Black Castle that has stood vacant for l00 years. I highly recommend this book. Keep in mind it's quite sensual too."

I love stories with castles in them! Add magic to the castle, and I'm hooked. And the castle in Deb's story seemed like a real *character* to me - it even talked! The descriptions of Ireland were so well-done that I could almost smell the sea. STEW moved quickly, too, and as I was reading I had a difficult time trying to find a "good place" to stop. You know how sometimes you get to parts in a book where you know you can stop reading for a while and not feel too anxious about what happens next? Well, not so with STEW. The setting, characters, humor, plot, dialogue, *very* hot love scenes -- everything meshed so wonderfully! I also loved the "Deep South meets Ireland" theme. Bridget's southernisms mixed with Riley's Irish words . . . That was fun, refreshing, and different. Honestly, this book had everything I love. I can't wait for Deb's next one!

Format: Mass Market Paperback
In Reedville, Tennessee, Bridget Colleen Mulligan mourns the accidental death of her grandmother. Bridget is stunned to learn the tiny trailer they shared has been foreclosed upon due to Granny's gambling debts. She is even more shocked to learn the man she married seven years ago, who disappeared seventy-two hours later, did not abandon her. Instead, his accidental death so quickly after their elopement deprived his family of knowledge of his young bride. Only her eventual divorce papers lead them to contact Bridget, and then, perhaps, only because she bore Culley's son. Desperation for family and new beginning leads Bridget to accept the invitation to her husband's family farm on the west coast of Ireland.
Culley's mother and sister truly Bridget and her son Jacob, but brother Riley disbelieves her tale. Culley had been engaged to a woman in the local village, and Riley did not believe his brother would marry another. Nevertheless, Bridget's straightforwardness and blatant honesty, not to mention her country cooking, eventually begin to work their magic on him. Then he finds her in the abandoned family castle, abandoned a hundred years ago due to a curse. Riley has heard the whispers of the castle since his brother died, though he never puzzled out why Culley believed he could end the curse. Riley believes the story of his brother's bride to a con until he realizes she can hear the whispers, too. And then there are the erotic dreams that lower his defenses and leave him vulnerable to the woman's spell.
Deb Stover writes with a stunning beauty and wry wit that resonates beautifully throughout all of her novels, but never so profoundly as with MULLIGAN STEW.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
For twenty-eight year old Bridget Colleen Mulligan, the best and worst day of her life was the day of Granny Frye's funeral. She and her six-year-old son, Jacob, were the last of the family line. They lived in Tennessee. The bank would take Granny's trailer at the end of the month and they would be homeless. It was made worse when Bridget's employer/lawyer informed her that her husband Culley had not abandoned her all those years ago. In fact, he was dead. Only recently had Culley's mother, in Ireland, found out Culley had married just before he died. Fiona Mulligan begged Bridget to come to Ireland, so she could hold in her arms the grandson she had not known existed. That fateful day Bridget lost all of her family in America and found a new family in Ireland.
Fiona fell in love with Bridget and Jacob upon first site! Maggie, Culley's younger sister, did too. The only one who did not was the older brother, Riley. Riley believed Bridget to be a fraud. Culley would never have wed a woman in America when he had a fiancé waiting for him in Ireland! But Jacob was the spitting image of Culley. And Riley could soon feel an attraction to Bridget that could have easily seduced his brother. And the woman was able to hear the voices!
Caislean Dubh was the name of the castle that overlooked the land. It was the Mulligan ancestral home, but no one had lived within the walls due to "The Curse" in a long time. Only Culley had heard the strange whispers that came from the castle. And only upon his death had Riley been able to hear them. No one else ever heard them, until Bridget. Why did she hear them? What could it mean?
***** Author Deb Stover spiced up this romance novel with just a dash of magic. At times I felt as if the past and the present were one and the same.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
When her grandmother dies leaving her in debt, Bridget Mulligan sees no hope for her son's well being until the letter arrives from Ireland. She learns that her husband Culley never abandoned her as she had thought for years, but actually died in a car accident. His mother and sister want her to come to Ireland to live with them though his older brother Riley thinks she is a gold digger.

Bridget and her son travel to Ireland where she feels the nearby ruined castle calling her. Though her female in-laws shower her with love, Riley treats her rather shabbily. Still even though he does not fully believe that Jacob is his nephew, he begins to act like an uncle towards the lad. Neither one wants it, but soon Riley and Bridget fall in love. However, chances of anything between them are improbable as both savor the memory of Culley and he remains doubtful about her motives. Finally there is the family curse.

Award winning Deb Stover provides her fans with an exhilarating paranormal romance within a classic-style romantic story line starring two souls who mistrust one another while falling in love. Riley remains obstinate a bit too long, but the audience will still cherish this hunk. Bridget is a strong female protagonist doing what needs to be done for the sake of her son. The support cast supplements the plot by providing depth to the personalities of the lead duet. With a strong cast, the key to MULLIGAN STEW is the ability of Ms. Stover to interweave her two subplots into one entertaining cohesive tale.
