Can first love turn into the real deal? Anything can happen in a sizzling Fool's Gold story from New York Times best-selling author Susan Mallery.
Isabel Beebe 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 14 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.

I've read a few books since listening to this and despite now being a little hazy on finer points of this story it did leave me with a warm glow of a nice book.
I really would like to read more of this series, I'd describe her style as warm and feel good beach books.
""Great story, narrator less than desirable""
The story was good, but the narrator has moments of robotic accent. Her accent was somewhat Midwestern at times and clipped and short like you were listening to a automated response from a computer. So I would listen to another one of Susan's books as long as the Tanya wasn't the narrator.
I liked that Ford and Isabel had such a history. They had their sweet moments. I also enjoyed the secondary romance between Kent and Consuelo.

It was hard to adjust to the narration, but the story was compelling enough to ignore it.
I would not recommend it to a friend. The weak ending ruined the story
The book was good, up until the conclusion, which was hastily and unsatisfactorily written.
The characters were likable, but my impression of the book was diminished due to the
abrupt ending, which was totally out of character for Ford and Isabel .
"Can't get enough of Fool's Gold"
WOW....I love this entire series. Anything Fool's Gold / Susan Mallery is an auto buy for me.
Anything Fool's Gold. Robyn Carr's Virgin River series...and Jill Shalvis Lucky Harbor series.
She brings the characters to life. I enjoy reading the books a lot, but the narration makes the experience that much more enjoyable.
Buy the series!
"this is my all. time favorite book!!"
I love how Isabel has Ford's back and 'protects' him with his family. I can relate to so many things that happened. I absolutely love these couples!!
"Truly an enjoyable Read!"
I thought this was a great story. Anyone who has dated or been involved with someone who has been enlisted can relate to the story. You can fantasize about your future life with that individual knowing that they may not even receive your letters but you keep sending them just on the outside chance.... The joy of all Susan Mallory stories is that there are always happy endings and once again she did not disappoint.
"Sexy, Heartwarming, Three Little Words"
Three Little Words is a sexy, heartwarming summer hit...out of the park fun!
I love the entire series, and can see the potential for Fool's Gold to continue indefinitely, as Susan Mallery introduces new characters to the town in every installment. I really enjoy Tanya Eby as narrator too. Her voice talent is very appealing for this style of novel.
Isabel and Ford's story is easily one of my favorites. The intensity of their relationship compels the reader to invest in their story. Individually, they are likable, and together, they are adorable.
Definitely Credit Worthy! Enjoy!
