Ex-boyfriends and single moms don't mix...or do they? “The urge to contact an old boyfriend should be approached with extreme caution, I always say,” begins Dublin girl Aislin Moore... In this breezy novel, single mam Aislin follows the mad impulse to find the perfect father figure for her little boy...and discovers she’s complicated her life more than she ever dreamed. Juggling the needs of her daddy-hungry son with her first love Ben and her estranged father, she’s fresh out of her klutzy charm to help her sort out the mess she’s created.
Lying low at her granny's cottage in the small village of Ballydara, in County Galway, Aislin is faced with decisions about trust, forgiveness, and the true meaning of family. 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 Kerry McCormack, a young Dublin wife and mother whose satisfying marriage is upended by her yearning to follow her dreams...
