Welcome to the Blog Blitz & Giveaway for Teal Paisley Tights by Barbara Brutt, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours! Happy Release Day to this debut author!

Title: Teal Paisley Tights
Author: Barbara Brutt
Publisher: Vinspire Publishing
Release Date: November 15, 2018
Genre: Contemporary Romantic Comedy

Life post-graduation was supposed to see the launch of paisley-loving Jadyn’s art career, or at least an art gallery showing one of her watercolor paintings. Instead, this Pittsburgh native is locked into a low-paying, buttoned-up consultant position with an impossible boss. When another colleague is dismissed, Jadyn inherits extra workload, including the company’s biggest client. If she loses him, she’s fired.

Jadyn people-pleases her way through life, resulting in extra work opportunities and a community classroom of art students. But when two guys appear on her doorstep, she just might not be able to people-please her way out of this love triangle. At the end of the day, she can’t please everyone.

Then, because of a small spending problem, Jadyn is evicted from her apartment, and she must move in with her know-it-all sister. Jadyn needs to decide between a job transfer that would place her near her love interest, or a full-time art career with all its risks.

Stretched like canvas between responsibility and dreams, she must choose. Will practicality always win?

Okay, I needed a pick me up.

Paisley! Where had I put those tights? I ran to the bags by the door and pulled the teal paisley hose from the outside pocket of my purse. Had they been hanging out of my purse the entire way from downtown? Oops.

I plopped onto the carpet and began working the tights up my legs, and as I did I remembered Victoria’s censure earlier that morning. Would Ethan agree with her assessment?

What Would Mel Do?

My beautiful, stubborn sister. She did what she wanted and had a wonderful fashion sense, but she also hated my obsession with paisley. I think she thought it was too childish or something.

Maybe it was.

  3. I love this title! And I love this line: “Stretched like canvas between responsibility and dreams, she must choose.” Ah, this woman can write. I’m betting her book has more lines just like this one! Sold! 🙂
