Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day

St. Patrick’s Day – wear green and you’re Irish.

Besides the usual green beer and bagels, celebrate with Nuala Anne McGrail – the perfect romantic and feisty Irish character – complete with brogue and blessed with the gift of second sight.    Andrew Greeley introduces the adventures of the Irish beauty and her foil Dermot Michael  in Irish Gold – then keeps them going through 12 mystery thrillers from Dublin to Chicago.   The latest is Irish Tiger.

Greeley can get a little maudlin and religious in his other books, so stick to any title with “Irish” in the title and sure you’ll have a darlin’ read.

In two days, it’s St. Joseph’s Day – you can be Italian and eat donuts.
