Patience Lost And Found-ish

I finally planted my last veggie in the brand new garden box my hubby made. I have never had that great of luck with strawberries, so I have no clue why I am trying them again. It’s just like with pumpkins. I try, I fail, I try again the same way. I might also just be optimistic. So the garden consists of red onions, carrots, snap peas, garlic, one tomato and now strawberries. Its been a month and I have yet to see one snap pea peek through the soil, but I wont give up just yet. I go through this every time I plant seeds. I always think I failed and just when I am about to give up and buy a plant, the seed pops up. After all these years I have yet to learn patience.

Lawson Daniel is good at a lot of things. He can show you the best places to surf, the perfect time of day to ride the tide. He knows the best bars, the best bands, he has the best weed, and if you’re looking to get laid, he’ll show you the best time.

No girl in her right mind should speak to him. She definitely shouldn’t have sex with him, and only a blind, self-loathing idiot would fall in love with him.

I’ve done all three.

All in the span of one sweltering, suffering summer that nearly cost me everything down to the blood in my body and the beat of my heart.

No one walked away from that season unscathed.

Not even Lawson Daniel.

Pillow Me Purr

I read that listening to a cat purr is good for your health. I decided that since my kitty Sinny is as big as a pillow, and wasn’t earning his weight around the house, it was time to put him to work. I was kinda half joking when I lay my head on his fluffy soft belly. I thought it would be too heavy. Instead he started purring pretty darn loud and made no attempt to move. Seriously! Cat pillows are pretty relaxing. I highly recommend everyone go out and adopt a fat cat.

Static Cling (The Irish Lottery Series Book 5)
by Gerald Hansen
4.8 Stars (22 Reviews)
Genre: Women’s Fiction | Humor & Satire | Contemporary Fiction

FREE for a limited time

PLEASE NOTE: Although this book is part of the IRISH LOTTERY SERIES, there is no cliffhanger. It is true that the characters get older as the series progresses, but each book is a complete story, and can be enjoyed without having read the previous book.

How can a mother prove her love? Is Fionnuala Flood even capable of it?

Her husband Paddy, her mother Maureen and her brood of seven children have finally had enough of Fionnuala’s acid tongue, casual corporal punishment and delinquent housekeeping. She’s banished from the family home and must live, exile-like, in a dilapidated trailer on the outskirts of Derry, N. Ireland. Fionnaula’s desperate to inveigle her way back and will stop at nothing to rule the roost once again.

She thinks her new job at the dry cleaners will be a breeze: short changing customers and adding to her wardrobe. But when an armed robbery during her shift leads to the death of beloved pensioner Mrs. Ming, Fionnuala’s one-time babysitter, the police investigation unleashes dark secrets that threaten to make a heart grow in Fionnuala. These secrets will either bring her closer to her estranged family or tear them apart forever.

Always on the receiving end of her mother’s scorn, newlywed Dymphna is struggling with three children under five and a marriage to Rory Riddell, a man from the swanky side of town. It’s a community alien to poor, clueless town tart Dymphna. When her mother-in-law (and Fionnuala’s boss) Zoe starts to doubt the provenance of Dymphna’s children, she starts to investigate. And discovers more than she bargained for.

Bestselling author Gerald Hansen’s fifth book pits the hand-to-mouth struggles of the audacious and gritty Flood family against the snobbish entitlement of the Riddells. And the sparks fly. Throw into the mix the return of a contestant from the Survivor-like Safari Millionaire, some shocking ancestral DNA results, and Fionnuala’s plan to rejoin the family home and save the world from evil with an eighth Crusade, and Static Cling is another hilarious ride — part roller coaster, carousel and ghost train — that will leave you gasping, wincing and, most of all, laughing. Will a heart at long last grow in Fionnuala? Who killed Mrs. Ming? Read and find out.
