For all you Susan Mallery fans who have read all/most of her books this story takes you back to the Key Sisters.
Raoul Moreno the High school football player that was dateing the Coachs (Hawk) daughter is the leading man in this fools gold story...
I am a Serial MultiTasker. Pretty much daily while I am at work I listen to Audiobooks. Some books I have listened to 3 to 5 times. Luv it.
Yes I have listened 3 times already. Pia is awesome and such a great person and Raoul is such a welcome character. It is nice to see what happens to himself since he is from the Sweet series. I will read again.
When he offers to be her "buddy". It shows character and your heart squeezes.
Yes. She is consistently awesome.
Yes. When she agrees to "do it". You will understand after you listen. I don't want any spoiler alerts.
I cant get enough. These books have brought me into this genre. I didn't use to read stuff like this. Between these and a couple other authors I have gotten hooked.
I love that the characters from the earlier book are reoccuring.
I like Pia. She is someone you want to be friends with.
When the older women ganged up of the rude women from out of town.
No. I liked listening to it in the car on the way to work for a week.
Good blend of romance and comedy
Very good at protraying the different characters
small town living
This series was really great. I listened to the complete Fools Gold series and enjoyed all the books. This is a great author and I have enjoyed all of the book I read. The lead into the next book flowed well, the characters are well defined and showed the human side of the lives we live.
This isn't my favorite Susan Mallery series, but this third installment to the series isn't half bad (in comparison to the first two books of the series). The story is mildly pleasant, and the characters are likable enough. If you really want a good Susan Mallery series, look for her Buchanan series (starting with Delicious). To me, this Fools Gold series as a whole just lacks the WOW factor of some of SM's earlier work.
I normally love Susan Mallery books, but the story line was so implausible in this book that I just couldn't get into it from the start. And the narrator's voice just added to the awfulness of this audiobook. Her breathiness and inflection was irritating. Don't bother with this book.
Of the three in the series this was the best story. The narration made me take 2 stars away from what could have been a great audiobook. Tanya Eby has very strange stop/starts, awkward pauses and poor voices for characters. Don't let her ruin the story for you. Read it instead of listening.
In book 2 (Ethan) & book 3 (Raul) seem to make the same mistake worth their initial marriage proposal. After Raul scolded Ethan he turns around and makes the same stupid mistake. I lost interest in this book.
