st patricks day


For three best friends, one winter will change everything.Chronically optimistic Jayne is surprised she’s still single at twenty-eight. But as always for Jayne, there’s hope. This time his name is Gray–a successful, gorgeous marketing VP that she can’t believe is going out with her. She’s never given up on the belief that the right man for her is out there, somewhere. Maybe Gray could be the one…if she just works hard enough to make it happen.Her cynical friend Karen is suspicious of Jayne’s new guy with his model looks and over-inflated ego. She’s concerned for Jayne, but has her own relationship to worry about. Not that anything’s wrong with her boyfriend. He’s actually perfect for her, which is why she’s terrified. Not sure she can ever fully trust a man again, she considers bailing on yet another relationship.

Claudia is always there for her friends, no matter what they’re going through. She mothers them like the children she craves to have, relieved she’s no longer navigating the dating world. Happily married, Claudia can’t wait until the day her husband finally agrees it’s time to start a family.

‘Til St. Patrick’s Day is a novel exploring the depths of friendship and what happens when love doesn’t go according to plan.




I really enjoyed this book!  I thought it was a great story about three friends and their life experiences (with men!) over a six month time frame.  The title of the book is based on a song and that relationships usually end by St. Patrick’s Day when all of the holidays are over and you don’t need a “date” or want to be alone.  I thought all three women were strong characters in their own way and learned a lot about themselves in these relationships and what they would and would not accept….and in the end realized that they were stronger than they thought.  I think they also learned things from their relationships and about who they are as people.

We give this book 4 1/2 paws!
