about the book
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?

Jadyn is a compassionate, creative, and hard-working young woman. She’s also a hot mess. Although my most artistic talent is tracing, I’m always fascinated by the talents and personalities of artistic characters like Jadyn. This story has an abundance of flawed, engaging characters that I want to spend more time with including Jadyn’s sister Mel, friends Lana and Travis, and secondary characters Gavin and Max. The plot is fresh and unpredictable with a uniquely satisfying conclusion.
Teal Paisley Tights is an entertaining rom-com with young adult flair and women’s fiction depth. I love the way this story tackles some of the greatest lessons we learn, especially as young adults: how to find and embrace our purpose, our worth, and our gifts. I’m definitely looking forward to more paisley, coffee, and retail therapy from Barbara Brutt!
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher and was under no obligation to post a review. The opinions expressed are my own.
about the author
Barbara Brutt, a born and raised Pittsburgher, spent her growing-up years with her nose in a book. After claiming her bachelor’s degree in English, she plunked down hard into a smattering of jobs from shop girl to communications director with a healthy dose of nanny and house-cleaner. Flying to new adventures is her favorite, especially on an airplane or aerial silk. Barbara adores ice cream and only buys purses that provide room for a book or two.
Barbara talks books, aerial silks, faith, and travel on her website and blog.
