A Mobster's Toast to St. Patrick's Day

Mobsters and St. Patrick's Day is a combination I had not thought of. In this sweet little tale it's a combination that works well. In this story you have two different families. One is a Irish family and the other is a family of mobsters. The two collide at a pub on St. Patrick's Day.

During the tale we learn a little about both families. We learn about the families businesses and how each family has a black sheep. This story is the prime example of a parable. The lesson it teaches is a heartwarming one. The story teaches the lesson in a way that is extremely enjoyable. This has become one of my favorite St, Patrick's Day stories.

Book Blurb for A Mobster's Toast to St. Patrick's Day

For Jeremy, trying to be live a life outside of the "family business" isn't easy. First, there was the Thanksgiving dinner disaster of A MOBSTER'S GUIDE TO CRANBERRY SAUCE, followed by the Valentine's Day nightmare of A MOBSTER'S RECIPE FOR CUPCAKES. By now, you'd think he'd find somewhere to lay low when a holiday rolls around.

Unfortunately for Jeremy, it appears St. Patrick's Day is going to be another trouble-filled holiday. His girlfriend Carla may be leaving him, his cupcake business is in danger of shutting down and his attempt to drown his troubles in green beer is being interrupted by Harry and Charlie, two of the most inept members of his family's employees.

When the bartender's cousin shows up with "family business" of his own, Jeremy's pretty sure he's gotten himself in the middle of a situation that no four-leaf clover is going to fix. Can Jeremy survive another holiday, get his girl back and not be driven insane by Harry and Charlie?

This is the third in Beth Mathison's MOBSTER humorous, short story crime series.
