My Favorite Series by Susan Mallery

My Favorite Series by Susan Mallery is Fool's Gold.  Susan Mallery is a New York Times Best Selling Author.  She lives in Seattle with her husband & her toy poodle.  If you want to read a series, then this is the series to read.  It is that good.  You will fall in love with the characters & the town.  Susan has it set in a town called Fool's Gold, CA.  I love Fool's Gold.  Not sure if I would like living in a small town with everyone knowing everything about myself & my family, but I would love getting some help with everything.  You just left the hospital or had a baby, then the town would be there helping you.  I love that!  You just broke up with your boyfriend then the girls are there cheering you up.  How nice is that?  You are sick with a cold.  The town helps you out.  

Here are the books in this wonderful series:
If you purchase one of Susan's books, please leave me a comment.  I would love to chat with you about that book!

So, on to the books!

The first book in the series is "Chasing Perfect", which we meet Charity Jones, who moved to Fool's Gold, California, which is a great place to live, but there is a small problem.  A shortage of men!  Charity is there to help with that problem.  I love the surprises that happen to Charity Jones since she arrived in Fool's Fold.  I love this book series.  You get to know more about the characters in the previous books.  

The second book in this series is "Almost Perfect", which is about Liz Sutton, who comes back to town to get her nieces when her brother can not take care of them anymore.  She has a son of her own, too, & she has to handle that her son's father, Ethan Hendrix, will find out about their son, but she has to get to her nieces. 

"Sister of the Bride" is Fool's Gold #2.5.  Katie learns that her sister is marrying her ex.  I have not read this one, but I plan to.

The third book is "Finding Perfect".  When Pia O'Brian's best friend dies, Pia expects to inherit her cherished cat, but instead she leaves her 3 frozen embroys.  Pia decides to become a single mother, but she meets a guy the very same day.  I loved the character of Peter, a sweet little boy that Raoul meets during a school's fire.  Pia has grown up a lot since we have found out how she was like in high school.  She hid behind her teasing others so others would not find out the truth about 
her.  Pia sacrifices herself to her friend's embryos implanted.  She is terrified at the idea of being a mom to 3.  

The fourth book is "Only Mine" is about Dakota.  Dakota meets Finn, who is looking for his twin brothers, who left college & Alaska.  Finn is not happy about them being in a reality show that is being filmed in Fool's Gold, CA.  

The fifth book is "Only Yours".  This is about Montana & Simon Bradley.  This book is really good & the ending is so good.  This is definitely a must read!

Just One Kiss (Fool's Gold, #11)
According to Goodreads, "He won't hesitate to put his life on the line...but will he ever risk his heart?
Falling for Justice Garrett was a high point in Patience McGraw's otherwise awkward adolescence. Even after he disappeared, Patience never forgot the boy who captured her heart. Now, he's back in Fool's Gold, California, and her passion for him is as strong as ever. But how can she trust that he won't abandon her again-and her daughter, too?

When bodyguard Justice Garrett was a young man, witness protection brought him to this idyllic town and he never forgot its warmth, or the sweet beauty of his childhood friend. He's returned to open a defense academy, and the Patience he once knew is all grown up. He can't resist her smile, or her curves. But Justice's past doesn't make him husband, or father, material.

Patience and Justice think they'll succumb to just one kiss... Then one more... Okay, just one night together. But they might learn that falling in love is beyond anyone's control."

The last time Gideon Boylan whispered in her ear was half a world away...on the morning after the hottest night of her life. Her freaky smarts have limited her close friendships, and romance, but she came to Fool's Gold looking for ordinary. Gorgeous, brooding Gideon is anything but that.

Black Ops taught Gideon that love could be deadly. Now he pretends to fit in while keeping everyone at arm's length. Felicia wants more than he can give-a home, family, love-but she has a lot to learn about men...and Gideon needs to be the man to teach her.

"There's nowhere better to spend the holidays than with New York Times bestselling author Susan Mallery in the town of Fool's Gold, where love is always waiting to be unwrapped... Noelle Perkins just got a second chance at life, and she intends to make the most of every minute. That's why she ditched a frustrating legal career to open her own store in Fool's Gold, California. The Christmas Attic celebrates everything that's magical about her favorite season. Business is booming, and as a bonus, gorgeous army doctor Gabriel Boylan has offered to help out during the holiday rush.

Gabriel's memories of Christmas past contain more sour grapes than sugar plums, thanks to a drill sergeant father who ran his home like a boot camp. Spending the holidays with his family while he recuperates from injury sounds as appetizing as last year's eggnog. Still, there are some enjoyable distractions in town, including sunny, sexy Noelle...and the red-hot mistletoe kisses they can't stop sharing.

Gabriel didn't think he was made for happily-ever-afters. But when fate hands you a love as sweet and surprising as this, only a fool could refuse.."  I want to move to Fool's Gold.  Being disabled, having a disabled daughter, a son with asthma & migraines, I could use some help at times.  Where is a town like this?  Anyone?  Add in 2 huskies!!  Did I tell you one of our huskies has separation anxiety?  Zeus is a great dog, but he hates to be alone.  Montana, I need your help big time! The other husky is a bit---HYPER!!  Bolt is a good dog.  

Keep on Reading!!
