New Series Introduction - Hi I'm Carrie Ann Cole
It all started as a favor to a friend. She was scheduled to cater an event for the Duke and Duchesses' trip to New York City when she got the flu. So I flew in to save the day. That's where I met the famous couple and a few weeks later-to my surprise- I was offered a job.
Now would you pass up an opportunity like that? I did have a long talk with my boyfriend before the move. John is also an up-and-coming chef. He decided we should take a break for the year that I'm under contract at the palace. I secretly hope to get him to come visit me in London and fall in love with the city. We could be international chefs.
Secret hopes don't always work out. Then there's the dead man I found under the Kale beds. It turns out he's one of my cooking assistants and I'm was the last person anyone saw talking to him. Being an American at the Royal Court means there are several people who want me to be suspect number one. When my other assistant becomes suspect number two, things get complicated. With my assistants dropping like flies, I have to figure out how to keep the kitchen going and the meals on time. Butting heads with the Palace's Head Chef-Chef Butterbottom- doesn't help my cause. So much for a glamorous life at court.
As you get to know me, you'll find out that complicated seems to be my middle name.
If you had a chance to live in London would you take it? If so, what would you do there? Please leave a comment below.
PS-my writer Nell Hampton is also known as Nancy J Parra and Nancy Coco.
Cheers, Carrie Ann
