Book 20, Fool's Gold

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


An irresistible new love story from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the
Fool's Gold series, set in 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!

From Publishers Weekly

May 23, 2016 – Mallery returns to the tiny mountain town of Fool's Gold, Calif., in the 20th and final book in her contemporary Fool's Gold series (after Marry Me at Christmas). Shelby Gilmore followed her ski racer brother, Kipling, to town, and bought into the local bakery. After her abusive upbringing, men terrify her. Town playboy Aidan Mitchell will sleep with any woman who comes through town, but only if she's a tourist. When the two team up as friends without benefits to overcome their fears Shelby's belief that intimacy means abuse, and Aidan's belief that commitment means pain and extreme self-sacrifice neither expects the arrangement to turn into a true romance. Even as they try to insist that they're only friends, it's obvious to everyone else both fictional characters and readers that they'll end up together. Mallery spins such an appealing town in Fool's Gold that readers will want to move in, or at least return for many visits. Even though the ending is eminently predictable, this expertly characterized tale has heart and soul.

Friends Before Lovers

Love the story of friends before lovers. Shelby was badly abused by her father and had trust issues. Aiden was a player alot of one night stands. They compliment each other. They do alot of girls things and boy things and even help Aiden get a dog. Enjoyed reading about Patience & Justice, Isabel & Ford, Gabriel & Noelle, Kipling and Destiny and how their love has grown. Aiden and Shelby are their for each other and the friendship grows into love. I enjoyed the part of Jo an the girls comforting Aiden with drinks and goodies. I have enjoyed the Fools Gold Series and loved them all, no spoilers from me, get the book you will not be dissappointed. Susan Mallery does not dissappoint . I look forward to Happily, INC. Once again, thank you Susan for an awesome book and series. I enjoy your books/

Best of My Love

I have always loved Susan's books. The Fool's Gold series has been a favorite of mine. In this one she deals with the age old question of ' can a man and woman be just friends?'

Shelby wants Aidan to just be friends for six months so they can learn about how the male and female should really be. After six months they will then go on their ways to be able to find someone one and fall in love.
I enjoy the characters of Fool's Gold and how they enteract with others. Since I hear this is the last in the series, I will miss them.
Found this to be a sweet romance of two characters I felt were right for each other.
I received an ARC for an honest review.

Loved the interventions!!!

What a great story line and there couldn't be two more perfect people than Aiden and Shelby to fit right into it. Their goal was to survive six months hanging out together, as friends only, no sex. Shelby needs to learn to trust men and Aiden needs to learn how to be friends with a woman and ONLY FRIENDS! She's up for it but what about him?

I felt like I was following these two around watching the story unfold...IN REAL LIFE! I always wondered when Shelby would deal with what her parents did to her and now I have my answer. I loved the role reversal interventions. Aside from working through past traumatic events, the story and characters of this fabulous little town are always fun to read about! I can't wait for my next visit to Fool's Gold, California.
