Patricia Scanlan Books Overview

City Girl

Three women share their dreams and secrets and empower each other to see beyond limitations in order to survive, discover their talents, and reach their goals.

City Woman

A sequel to ‘City Girl’, which brings the reader up to date with Devlin, Caroline and Maggie, the men in their lives, and their triumphs and disasters.

Finishing Touches

Cassie, Laura, and Aileen were schoolmates and best friends, sharing the passions, problems, and aspirations of young women coming into their own. Cassie put her life on hold to attend to her family’s needs while Laura and Aileen soared in their careers. Now they were together again as Cassie dared to start her own business and make her impossible dream come true.

Foreign Affairs

Four women are at crossroads in their lives, facing difficult decisions and badly in need of a holiday. Paula is successful but can’t find love, Brenda is tired of being a housewife, Rachal is filled with suppressed anger towards her father, and Jennifer is struck with a terrible tragedy. When the four women stay in a luxurious villa on a Greek island, they soon realize that they have embarked on more than just a foreign holiday. Amidst rows, arguments, laughter, and fun they come to see each other in a different light.

Promises, Promises

Promises, Promises covers a decade in the lives of the four Munroe women-and the charming womanizer who left a trail of emotional destruction in his wake. A tale of love and heartbreak, laughter and tears, that will strike a chord with all women.

Francesca’s Party

When everyone expects you to fall apart, do the unexpected: Get a Life. After years of being the perfect wife and mother, Francesca Kirwan realizes one dreary fall day that her life is a sad clich when she catches her husband, Mark, with another woman. With her safe, predictable life turned upside down and an uncertain future ahead of her, Francesca has only two choices: sink or swim. So Francesca decides to get a life…
a life of her own making. But first she has to deal with the obstacles in her way her husband’s ambitious young girlfriend who intends to get exactly what she wants; her teenage sons’ mixed reactions to the changes in the family; Mark’s own reluctance to accept the consequences of his actions; and sexy journalist Ralph Casson, who shows more than a professional interest in Francesca. Then Francesca decides to throw a party, and that’s when the fun really starts…

Coming Home

Two sisters…
two very different lives. Alison’s American dream is in tatters. Her highflying career is on the skids in the financial meltdown. Her Upper East Side apartment is now way beyond her means. But pride prevents her from telling her family back home just how bad things are. Olivia is fraught trying to juggle family, career, preparations for Christmas and organize a surprise party for their mother’s seventieth birthday. How she envies, and sometimes resents, her sister Alison and her life of excitement and affluence in New York. Coming Home is the last thing Alison wants to do, especially now that she’s met a rather attractive, sexy, down to earth neighbour who doesn’t believe in ‘non exclusive dating’ unlike her wealthy boyfriend, Jonathan. But family ties are strong. Alison and Olivia sort their differences, the party throws up a few surprises and Christmas brings changes for Alison that she could never have imagined before Coming Home.
