To bridal boutique owner Madeline Krug, organizing a Christmas wedding sounds like a joy - until she finds out she'll be working closely with the gorgeous brother of the bride, movie star Jonny Blaze. How will a small-town girl like her keep from falling for the world's sexiest guy? Especially with mistletoe lurking around every corner!
Jonny came to Fool's Gold looking for normal, not for love. Happily ever after only happens in the movies. Still, nothing about this quirky town is quite what he expected, and "ordinary" Madeline is the most extraordinary woman he's ever met. Refreshingly honest, disarmingly sweet. Achingly beautiful.
Planning the perfect wedding leads to candlelit dinners and strolls through snow-covered streets. And Madeline finds Jonny in real life even more captivating than her celebrity crush. But will the action star be brave enough to risk his heart and step into the role of a lifetime?

I absolutely would. Madeline finally getting to know her movie star crush as a person and Jonny's love for his sister totally made this a keeper.
When Jonny and Madeline take Raven, the dog, shopping at the pet store.
When Madeline admits to Jonny that she loves him after she drives to the ranch in the snow.
Movie star and bridal consultant make magic
Another Fool's Gold super hit from Susan Mallery.
Susan does it again with Tanya Eby!! They are a hit together!! The story was heart felt and not over the top and Tanya did an excellent job as always!!!
I really don't like giving negative reviews, but I just can't keep it to myself on this one. There's nothing wrong per se with the story, other than it's so beyond sappy sweet that I've cured my sweet tooth for all of the new year! Honesty, imo, nothing interesting happens, nothing challenging happens, there's no real tension, no real build up. And the "growth" of the characters really just falls flat - either by the writing or the reading, or maybe both. I like my happy endings - in fact, for me they're a requirement - but there was no real satisfaction in this one because there was no real struggle to get there. The biggest surprise for me was how highly this book is rated.
The narrator is **awful**. She is nasally, high-pitched and overly dramatic. She ar... tick... you... laytsss much too dramatically. And she really only has about 3 voices. Very amateurish, in my opinion. She took a very poorly written Christmas "romance" with poor character development and predictable plot lines and just made it SO much worse!
Haven't and, based on this book, won't! The plot was trite and predictable. The characters were trite... and predictable. The story was extremely predictable and... zzzzz.....
Oh, sorry, I drifted off.
Nothing could have saved this terrible book
No. The plot was trite, predictable and written seemingly by a 16-year-old girl ... for other 16-year-old girls.
I thought this was a really cute Christmas read. I enjoyed it for what it is. The only thing that got me is why a guy would be planning out most of his sisters wedding, but then again there wouldn't be a story if he weren't.
Susan Mallory is a great romance author. The narration was well done. This is a great book to listen to on a commute.
Fools Gold is kind of a utopia. People go to it, fall in love and become so happy that they never want to leave. The main characters and townspeople are nearly perfect and nothing really bad happens. Marry me at Christmas was no exception.
