Book 16, Fool's Gold

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


New York Times bestselling author Susan Mallery's classic blend of lighthearted humor and intense emotional conflict works its magic on two newcomers to the California town of Fool's Gold, which Library Journal calls "a setting so real and appealing readers will want to start scoping out real estate." 

Destiny Mills believes passion has its place—like in the lyrics of the country songs that made her parents famous. After a childhood full of drama and heartache, she wants a life that's calm. Safe. Everything that Kipling Gilmore isn't. Her temporary assignment with the Fool's Gold search and rescue team puts her in delicious proximity to the former world-class skier every day. Part of her aches to let go for once…the rest is terrified what'll happen if she does. 

Though an accident ended his career, Kipling still lives for thrills—and a hot fling with a gorgeous redhead like Destiny would be a welcome diversion. Yet beneath his new coworker's cool facade is a woman who needs more than he's ever given. With her, he's ready to take the risk. But love, like skiing, is all about trust—and before you soar, you have to be willing to fall.

Look for Best of My Love, the next title in Susan Mallery's Fool's Gold series.

From Publishers Weekly

Feb 23, 2015 – Mallery imbues her 19th visit to the town of Fool's Gold, Calif. (after Until We Touch), with folksy charm and family drama. Destiny Mills, the daughter of two country music stars whose antics get as much attention as their singing, is determined to avoid the limelight. Despite having a fantastic voice, she makes her living as a nomadic computer consultant. Kipling Gilmore was once a gold-medal skier, but his athletic dreams were extinguished after a serious accident on the slopes. When Destiny comes to Fool's Gold to train the local search and rescue team on new software, her plan to keep her heart safe from the very attractive Kipling falls by the wayside after he kisses her. But Kipling is cynical about everlasting love after growing up in an abusive home, and Destiny is frightened of emotional entanglement. While the story makes occasional swerves into melodrama, the appealing characters make up for it.

Customer Reviews

Love Fool's Gold

I was so excited to read the next installment in Fool's Gold, and it did not disappoint. Destiny and Kipling are both new to Fool's Gold. They both want a sense of belonging to friends and family. Kipling is such a HERO in more than one way. They find love when least expected. There is a perfect blend of humor and family drama to make every reader wanting more.
It was great to catch up with the rest residents of Fool's Gold. I love this series. I highly recommend visiting Fool's Gold.

More Please!!

Susan Mallery has done it again! It's so great to be back in Fools Gold. Kipling and Destinys story is fun, tearful and all around a great read. I love hearing about familiar names and adding a few new residents Can you picture Taryn and Destiny in Mommy and Me classes together? It would be hysterical. Whether you are a vicarious resident of Fools Gold or this is your first visit, I know you will enjoy this story.

Not quite as sweet as the rest but still good!

*sigh* Another fabulous visit to Fool's Gold! This book is about Destiny Mills and Kipling Gilmore. This trip to Fool's Gold seemed a little different than previous trips. The story line centered more around Destiny, Kipling and their sisters and not quite so much interaction with the town. We did see old friends and of course Mayor Marsha but they were more in the background than usual, which was fine and didn't detract from the story at all.

Destiny reminded me a little of Felicia. Not in the super genius way but in the, just-the-facts and no real word world experience, kind of way. She's been put through a lot growing up with famous parents who paid more attention to themselves than their children. Thank God for Grandma Nell! I'm so happy that Kipling found someone to cure his serial monogamist ways. Their adventure, starting out as friends and going from there, has a few rough patches but the journeys eye-opening for both of them.

This is a little less sweet than normal romance, with tons of self-discovery, in our favorite little town of Fool's Gold. It's always sad to leave and I can't wait to come back again!
