Publisher's Summary

An irresistible new love story from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Fool's Gold series, a town Library Journal calls "so appealing, readers will want to start scoping out real estate."

To overcome her painful past, baker Shelby Gilmore goes on the hunt for a friend - a male friend - to convince her stubborn psyche that men can be trusted. But where in a town as small as Fool's Gold will the petite blonde find a guy willing to not date her?

Dark, charming Aidan Mitchell puts the "adventure" in Mitchell Adventure Tours...and into the beds of his many willing female tourists. Until he realizes he's inadvertently become that guy - the one-night Casanova - and worse, everyone in town knows it. Maybe Shelby's boy/girl experiment will help him see women as more than just conquests so he can change his ways and win back his self-respect.

As Aidan and Shelby explore the secret lives of men and women, the heat between them fires up the Fool's Gold rumor mill. If no one will believe they're just friends, maybe they should give the gossips something to really talk about!

Tedious.<br />Where all the med swear softly,

And "fill their women" perfectly. They're all well endowed. They're all insanely neurotic and in denial. Predictable. The story never tells the full description of the bakery. It's very one sided. Probably the worst of the series!

Meh...tedious...

Although necessary in order to follow the beloved Fool's Gold Series it was a tedious listen. The two main characters, while likeable, had the same two lines throughout. I'm hopeful for a better one next in line...

A Happily Ever After Story

When real life is stressful, there is nothing like a good happily ever after book to soothe the soul.
This book had a predictable ending, but, it was a fun adventure to follow. The narrator was outstanding.

Outstanding

This series makes me want to live in Fools Gold. Each time I read a new book it's like going back home again. Susan keeps all of the characters I've gotten to know alive and up to date as the stories continue. I can't believe this hasn't become a TV series. The audio narrator is great.

Great Story!

Another great Fool's Gold novel. Love the emotional switch of the characters while still staying true to gender norms.

meh.

A really interesting premise of male and female plutonic friendship. however, the author continually beats the audience over the head with rigid gender roles.

Are you kidding me?? Disappointing.

Are you kidding me?? This whole book is really bad what happened?? I'm usually a fan of mallerys writing but not this one. A girl who decides she is going to become friends with a boy! SHOCK HORROR! And nobody in the town can believe that a girl and a guy can be friends. Pathetic. Dont waste your time or money.

Such a great ending to an amazing series.

Shelby is newly transplanted into Fool's Gold and has a history with abusive parents. Her brother Kipling was almost always there to save her until he was injured and in the hospital - enter Mayor Marsha who always knows shit somehow.

Aiden grew up on a farm outside Fool's Gold with a neglectful father and a mother who was too devoted to her husband. He has turned into somewhat of a man whore until one night an old conquest comes back to town looking to settle down and he can't even remember her name.
