Publisher's Summary

When Pia O’Brian’s best friend dies, Pia expects to inherit her cherished cat. Instead, the woman leaves Pia three frozen embryos. With a disastrous track record in the romance department and the parenting skills of a hamster, Pia doesn’t think she’s meant for motherhood. But determined to do the right thing, Pia decides to become a single mother. Only to meet a gorgeous, sexy hunk the very same day.

A former foster-care kid now rich beyond his wildest dreams, Raoul Moreno runs a camp for needy children in Fool’s Gold, California. After his last relationship, Raoul thought he was done with women and commitment. Still, he can’t get sweet, sexy Pia out of his mind - and proposes a crazy plan. But can such an unconventional beginning really result in the perfect ending?

Friendship an unwavering Devotion.

Would you listen to Finding Perfect again? Why?

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.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Finding Perfect?

When he offers to be her "buddy". It shows character and your heart squeezes.

Have you listened to any of Tanya Eby’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes. She is consistently awesome.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Yes. When she agrees to "do it". You will understand after you listen. I don't want any spoiler alerts.

Any additional comments?

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.

When the older women ganged up of the rude women from out of town.

Finding Perfect

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.

Not bad...

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.

Not worth the time

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.

Story good, narrator NOT

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.

For all you Susan Mallery fans who have read all/most of her books this story takes you back to the Key Sisters.

Predictable but fun!

This is a light, predictable but nice summer listen. I've enjoyed other Susan Mallery books narrated by Tanya Eby, and this was just as enjoyable.
