I was excited to find that there were other books in the Fools Gold series after reading a book at the beach in the middle of the series. Chasing Perfect (Fool's Gold, Book 1) by Susan Mallery was a great book for summer reading. I was excited that the library had the beginning of the series so I started back at the beginning to find out what I missed!!
Welcome to Fool's Gold, California, a charming community in the
foothills of the Sierra Nevada. There's lots to do and plenty of people
to meet, especially women. Because there's just one tiny problem in
Fool's Gold: the men don't seem to stick around. Maybe it's the lure of
big-city life, or maybe it's plain old bad luck, but regardless of the
reason, the problem has to be fixed, fast. And Charity Jones may be just
the city planner to do it.
Charity's nomadic childhood has left
her itching to settle down, and she immediately falls in love with all
the storybook town has to offer—everything, that is, except its sexiest
and most famous resident, former world-class cyclist Josh Golden. With
her long list of romantic disasters, she's not about to take a chance on
another bad boy, even if everyone else thinks he's perfect just the way
he is. But maybe that's just what he needs—someone who knows the value
of his flaws. Someone who knows that he's just chasing perfect.
Loved it! After reading something in the middle of this series that I had gotten at one of the summer reading programs last year while we were at the beach, I was excited to start at the beginning of the series. I was great writing and wonderful characters that had you cheering for Charity to get everything she wanted. Charity had a tough life growing up with her mother who had no rules and moved around a lot so the only thing that Charity was looking for was some place to settle down and start a family. She found Fools Gold after landing a great job in the government there. After settling into the small town, she realized how much she loved living there and having the whole town support her even if they are always involved in all of her business. She quickly has feelings for Josh Golden who grew up in the small town and she is fighting her feelings the best that she can. But you will have to pick up the book to find out what happens!! I hope that you check out this book and others in the series at your local library or bookstore soon. I know that you will like them as much as I have!
