What Are We Going To Do About A Girl Named Gigi?

by Reginald, erstwhile Westhighland White Terrier
from the Gourmet De-Lite Series by Peg Cochran

Hi, my name is Reginald, and I’m the the Gourmet De-Lite series.  I play quite an important role in the books, finding clues and saving my owner from sure disaster.  

She’s a very nice lady is Gigi Fitzgerald.  She took me in and has given me a wonderful home even if she is a bit of a bed hog!   She’s quite pretty although she doesn’t spend much time worrying about that, and men are attracted to her.  For instance, Detective Bill Mertz.   And Carlo Franchi who owns the Italian restaurant in town.  And then there’s Declan McQuaid who appears in the second book in the series, Steamed to Death.

I personally think they are all very nice, but I think she needs to make some sort of decision and settle on one of them.  They’re all interested--it’s up to her to pick.  She needs to get over the heartbreak her former husband left her with and get on with her life.  

What do you think?  A nice steady policeman like Mertz--he’s very neat, and she’ll never have to worry that he leaves his dirty clothes all over the place.  A passionate Italian like Carlo who shares her love for food.  Or, a very delectable Irishman with brooding eyes and a mysterious past?  Who should she choose?


  1. Interesting men to choose from. The detective will come in handy when taking on the role of amateur sleuth though.

  2. She needs time for her heart to heal completely. That's not saying she shouldn't date and enjoy the attention each of these men give her. Her heart will know when the time is right and if any are truly suited for her, he'll still be there waiting when she is.

  3. Well, now it sounds like she's spoiled for choice, right? But I agree with Sue... the heart knows when it is ready, and who is the right fellow!

  4. OK, I agree with Sue and Victoria but passion and food -- just saying!!!

  5. We think you should choose for her. When Gigi's not looking, display your teeth to the two men you like least.

  6. Excellent advice Sally-forth and Tally-Ho! Why didn't I think of that?

    Woof, woof,
