"Exhilarating paranormal romance within a classic-style romantic story line"

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.

Single mother Bridget Mulligan is on the verge of homelessness when her late husband's family invites her and her son to Ireland. Irish in-laws sound like more trouble than Grandpa's coonhound when the neighbor's poodle goes into heat, but Bridget is out of options.

Riley Mulligan believes the American temptress is only after their property, though he can't deny her son's resemblance to his late brother. Unfortunately, Riley also finds Bridget's guileless and bewitching ways dangerously desirable....

The Mulligans' ancestral castle overlooking the sea haunts Bridget, and she realizes that her dreams are somehow tied to the ancient keep. And to the mysterious man who is her brother-in-law....
