About the book: Can first love turn into the real deal in a sizzling new Fool's Gold story from New York Times bestselling author Susan Mallery? Isabel Carlisle thinks she's cursed in the romance department. Her teenage crush, Ford Hendrix, ignored all her letters. Her husband left her for another...man. So Isabel has come home to dust off her passion for fashion and run the family bridal shop until her parents are ready to sell it. Then she'll pursue her real dreams. At least, that's the plan, until sexy, charming Ford returns and leaves her feeling fourteen all over again....
Seeing Isabel all grown up hits bodyguard trainer Ford like a sucker punch. Back when heartbreak made him join the military, her sweet letters kept him sane. Now he can't take his eyes-or his lips-off her. The man who gave up on love has a reason to stay in Fool's Gold forever-if three little words can convince Isabel to do the same....
My thoughts: I had such a fun time reading this book and learning about some of the Fool's Gold's residents! I guess this is book twelve, but it was fine as a stand-alone. I may need to go back and pick up some of the first ones!
At one time Ford was engaged to Isabel's sister Maeve. Of course, Isabel was only fourteen years old at the time and thought her sister was crazy when she broke off the engagement. She swore she would love Ford forever and wrote him letters for ten years. Meanwhile, he left town and became a Navy Seal, and never wrote Isabel back.
When Isabel got engaged herself, she wrote Ford and told him that she would no longer be sending any letters as she didn't feel it was appropriate any more. As fate would have it, they both end up back in Fool's Gold a few years later - single - and not looking for love.
The chemistry between Ford and Isabel was unmistakable, and despite that, they start "fake" dating to try to fool Ford's mom. But the only people they are fooling is each other.
There is more than one romance afoot in Fool's Gold though and that keeps the book moving along. It was a quick read with lot's of interesting secondary characters - some of which I am sure were introduced to lead into more Fool's Gold books. I would definitely pick up another book by Susan Mallery.
