I had to go backwards because I missed a Christmas novel which was supposed to be the tenth book in the Fool's Gold series. A Fool's Gold Christmas (Fool's Gold, Book 10) by Susan Mallery was waiting on my reserve shelf after I finished the last three books that I might have read a little too quickly before this one came in. The great part is that nothing was given away from the other books so that was exciting!!
The cheer in Fool's Gold, California, is bringing out the humbug in
dancer Evie Stryker. An injury has forced her to return home to her
estranged family. So she won't add to the awkward scenario by falling
for the charms of her brother's best friend, no matter how tempting he
is. When she's recruited to stage the winter festival, she vows to do as
promised, then move on, anywhere but here.
Jaded lawyer Dante
Jefferson is getting used to the town he now calls home, but the
pounding of little dancers' feet above his office is more than he can
take. When he confronts their gorgeous teacher, he's unprepared for
their searing attraction. Evie is his best friend's sister—off-limits
unless he's willing to risk his heart. Dante has always believed that
love is dangerous, but that was before he had to reckon with the magic
of a certain small town, where miracles do seem to happen….
I enjoyed this Christmas book but I think that it was missing a little of the magic of the other books with details on the characters. I like to feel connected to the characters more then the information when I read the book that is focused on them. I don't feel like I got a lot more information about either of these two characters in this short book. Maybe this means that too many things about their past has been revealed in other books but there is always some little mystery reveals and I don't think that it was in this one except their "secret" relationship when they were caught by her family. I love both characters so it was great to see them work through their differences and I was entertained by the story. I hope that you check it out for yourself and see what you think!!
