Come back to Burton, and fall in love in a small town all year long . . . Eleven St. Patrick’s romances that take place in Burton, Georgia, the small town that’s big on romance!


I moved to the States for a fresh start, with a new job managing holiday cottages and the chance to get to know my American cousins better. And while I love my job and my family, I’m not excited about the big St. Patrick’s Day party they’re throwing. I’ll go, but I’m not happy about participating in this crazy American ritual. Green beer? Ugh!


When Flynn Evans’ pretty Irish cousin needs a ride home from the St. Patrick’s Day shindig, offering to drive her isn’t a hardship, even in the middle of a freak March snowstorm. But being stuck with her at the cottages she manages . . . hey, maybe March 17th IS my lucky day!

The publisher states that veteran author Tawdra Kandle extends her Love in a Small Town series in this contribution that even unfamiliar readers will enjoy.
