Susan Mallery has done it again as she transports readers back to Fool’s Gold. I would love for this place to be real so that I could live there. Ms. Mallery has created a fun small town where everyone cares about one another and they all have a vested interest in seeing people succeed. In this latest book, we catch up with Maya Farlow. Maya is working as the communications director for the town at the insistence of Mayor Marsha. Maya has just been informed that she needs to create a marketing campaign to build up tourism. Maya left her network job to come home and is excited to put her video knowledge and directing abilities to work. She is glad to help out until the onscreen talent enters the room. Then Maya has to do some strong self-talk to appear calm and collected. Delany Mitchell was Maya’s first love. She thought they were going to get married until fear go the better of her and she broke thing off. Maya hasn’t seen Del since that horrible break-up and she knows that he doesn’t come home all that often. Working with Del on this campaign is going to be very difficult especially since Maya knows that she still owes him an apology for how she ended things. Del has returned for his father’s 60th birthday party. He never expected to see Maya or to find himself still attracted to her. Del has to figure out a way to work with her as he reconnects with his family and makes some big decisions about his future. I love the relationship between Del and Maya. They obviously had a passionate relationship years ago and now that they are back together the sparks fly. Unfortunately, trust once broken is hard to rebuild. Maya and Del have to figure out if they can be friends, lovers or business partners. All of this is set against the small town they both call home. In addition to their own issues, they have to cope with family issues and all that goes with living in a small town. Maya has an extremely strong friendship with Del’s mom and when she gets drawn into family drama, she has to decide how to handle it in light of her budding romance with Del. For those of us who have been fans of the series for a long time, catching up with characters from the previous books is a treat. We see what all our favorites are up to. For those readers new to the series, this book can stand on its own. Yes, characters from prior books make an appearance, but not knowing their romantic history doesn’t stand in the way of enjoying this book. Anyone who plays a pivotal role in this book will have more than enough information for you to put them in context.
