After losing her job, her house, and her long-term boyfriend, Gabby’s roommate signs her up to be in a dating experiment. Little does she know, however, that her ex is in the experiment too! In an attempt to escape the chaos of her life, Gabby visits home and accidentally reunites with her childhood friend (and secret crush), Ian O’Connell. As she participates in the study and its hilariously awkward dates, Gabby finds her heart torn between the man she’s comfortable with and the man who’s had her heart from the beginning.Find it on Amazon here.
A fun note from Elodia:
In my new book, Gabby plays Two Truths and One Lie on one of her experiment dates. So, I thought in honor of St. Patrick's Day, I myself would play Two Truths and One Lie, the Luck Version:
1. My first day of Kindergarten, the teachers told us they were going to check if we were right handed or left handed or both, which they said was called being ambidextrous. They gave us mini chalkboards and asked us to write a letter on the chalkboard with each of our hands. I remember trying SO HARD to write perfectly with both hands, so I could be ambidextrous. But I wasn't so lucky--I was clearly right handed no matter how hard I tried.
2. I was in Girl Scouts from age 5-12 and remember going horseback riding for the first time ever with my troop when I was about ten. I have loved riding ever since! I do it as much as I can with my niece (who is a total natural) when I'm at my in-laws house in Texas. Lucky for me, they have two of the most beautiful horses I've ever seen.
3. I played the flute in high school and wanted to join the marching band. But I was so stressed out by the idea of ruining my high school's reputation by my inevitable trip/tumble/wrong turn on the field that I used my experience playing piano to join the percussion pit. I ended up learning how to play the marimba, xylophone, bells, etc. Definitely a lucky decision!
The Lie: I'm a terrible horseback rider and have been since I was a kid. Horses can clearly sense I'm terrified of falling off. But my niece IS a total natural. Must be that Irish luck from my father-in-law!
