Rescuing her mother's TV cooking show isn't as easy as trend analyst Mya Strano hopes, mainly because family friend Eric Baldini is also involved. No longer the bratty kid Mya remembers, Eric's a film student now, and very attractive, but he's not what she's looking for in any respect. He's trouble—with a capital T! Mary Leo's A Pinch of Cool (3) is quite amusing, and there's a lot to like about Mya and Eric. Some elements of the story are a little problematic (for example, Mya's sudden willingness to give up her dream job), but it's worth a look.
