"The urge to contact an old boyfriend should be treated with extreme caution," says Dublin single mom Aislin Moore. In this breezy romantic comedy, twentysomething Aislin (pronounced "Ash-lin") decides her daddy-hungry son Kevin has been without a father long enough, so she follows the mad impulse to find the perfect father figure for her little boy... Who else but Ben Carpenter, her first love and the man she's never forgotten?
Turns out, easygoing businessman Ben is great father material. And more of a hunk than she remembered. Although Aislin is determined to keep things platonic, having Ben around is far more of a distraction than she planned, and before long, she’s fresh out of her klutzy charm to sort out the mess she’s created.
When Aislin takes refuge at her granny's cottage in Ballydara, County Galway, to plan her next move, she learns life has only begun to get complicated—and she is soon faced with decisions about family, forgiveness, and her relationship with Ben. Can a commitment-shy young mother find lasting love?
The Hopeful Romantic, the 3rd novel of the series, is now available! It’s the tender tale of a young Dublin wife and mother, whose satisfying marriage is upended by her yearning to follow her dreams. An old-fashioned love story, The Hopeful Romantic is also a sensitive portrayal of marriage, family, and second chances.
