Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Isn’t that a gorgeous book cover? I absolutely love it. Makes me want to find out what the story is about. And that is exactly what we’re going to do right now.

~ Synopsis ~

Twenty five year old Hailey Crossan takes a trip to Ireland during a sabbatical from her job in the LA record business. While there, she’s offered a job too good to turn down, so she stays.

Although Hailey works in Galway, she lives in the countryside of Connemara, a rural area famous for its Irish traditional music.  When Hailey meets local musician, Liam Hennessey, a confusing relationship begins, which Hailey thinks is the result of differing cultures, for Liam is married to the music, and so unbalanced at the prospect of love, he won’t come closer nor completely go away.

And so begins the dance of attraction that Hailey struggles to decipher. Thankfully, a handful of vibrant local friends come to her aid, and Hailey learns to love a land and its people, both with more charm than she ever imagined.


It’s been years since I’ve been to Ireland, but I remember it vividly–especially Galway. More shades of green than you can imagine. And, of course, the music…

Oops, I felt myself drifting away there for a moment. I’m back now – sort of.

And now to meet the lovely Claire Fullerton herself, the weaver of this tantalizing tale:
