Day 6 of the 10-day Countdown!

It’s day 6 of the 10-day Countdown!! Meet Dr. Brogan Corkie. Don’t Mess with Christmas is Book 4 of the Dr. Brogan Corkie Matchmaking Doctor series ~ matchmaking at its funniest! November 2nd is the big day. Woohoo!



Well, this is certainly a pleasure! I’m Dr. Brogan Corkie. I’m a mother, a doctor, and by far the most fun, an amateur chef. I’ve been experimenting with recipes for years using my two children, Mae and Finn, as guinea pigs. They’re onto me now, though, and it’s harder to convince them that the substitutions I make are going to be just as tasty. They generally are. 😀

They know me well at the International Market, a small grocery store within walking distance to my home in Mapleton, Ontario. I love to try unusual ingredients!

I’ve been a family physician for forty years now, and I’ve pared back my hours at the clinic to make more time in the kitchen. My fridge and freezer are getting mighty full, so I’ve branched out to find more victims…er…taste testers. I always thought it would be worthwhile to start a catering business and combine my medical skills with my cooking skills to help people who are laid up at home, recovering from an illness or injury. It’s worked out better than I could have imagined – and lo and behold – I’ve thrown a little matchmaking into the mix. It’s been fun to open their eyes to new ways of thinking – about food and love! Lately my matchmaking has taken second seat to my own romance – there’s never a dull moment. There’s always something fun happening in retirement – onto the next adventure!


Dr. Brogan Corkie is happily semi-retired from medicine and now has time for other hobbies. Her passion for food is second only to her skill at matchmaking!

Parker Roy grew up in the middle of four brothers and has lived with enough testosterone to last her a lifetime. She’s finally moved out and made a life of her own. Between putting the finishing touches on the set for Mapleton’s Christmas play, plowing snow, and transforming her hydroponic greenhouse into a Christmas wonderland, it’s ramping up to be a hectic season.

Dr. Julian Murphy, the only allergist in town, has his eye on the woman behind the set design of the holiday play. He’s volunteering backstage in the hope of getting to know her. There’s a bit of a snag when she’s referred to his clinic for a rash – doctors aren’t allowed to date their patients – but Dr. Brogan Corkie doesn’t see it as an insurmountable problem and steps in to give their romance a nudge. She’d better be right because, if not, it could seriously mess with Christmas.


The allergist or the rash– which itch does Parker want to scratch?
