New York Times bestselling author Susan Mallery brings you a heartwarming tale for the holidays!The unrelenting cheer in Fool’s Gold, California, is bringing out the humbug in dancer Evie Stryker. She learned early on that Christmas miracles don’t happen, at least not for her. And this year seems like no exception.
An injury has forced her to return to the family fold, no matter that they’re estranged. She won’t add to the awkward scenario by being seduced by the bad-boy charms of her brother’s best friend, the last man she should ever want to date. Even when she’s recruited to stage the Fool’s Gold winter festival, she vows to do as promised, then move forward with her life anywhere but here.
Jaded lawyer Dante Jefferson is getting used to the backwater town he now reluctantly calls home, but the pounding of little dancers’ feet above his temporary office is more than any man should have to take! When he confronts their gorgeous teacher, he’s unprepared for the attraction that sears him down to the soul. Evie is his best friend’s sister—off-limits unless he’s willing to risk his heart. Dante has always believed that love is the most dangerous force in the universe, but that was before he had to reckon with the magic of a certain small town, where miracles do seem to happen…
My Thoughts on the Book:
As was the case with the other Fool's Gold novels, I enjoyed it a lot. After meeting both Evie & Dante in the previous novels, I was looking forward to reading their story.
I already liked a lot Dante as a character, and of course I wanted him to have his HEA, and I was hoping it will be with Evie, and yeah, they were perfect for each other.
The chemistry & the romance between them was great, and so fun & yummy & sweet, so I really enjoyed reading about it. Of course there are the problems they needed to overcome and all that, but it was really fun book, and perfect for the holidays.
And, yeah, the title A Fool's Gold Christmas was perfect, because it wasn't only about the romance between Dante & Evie, but also about how everyone in Fool's Gold celebrates Christmas.
A Fool's Gold Christmas is another good addition to the Fool's Gold series, that you don't want to miss, and a perfect read for the winter holidays, so I recommend it a lot!
