Jack McGarry is having a talk about Larissa Owens and learns something interesting. Larissa is relatively new to Fool’s Gold but she loves it there. They work together in the same office. The reader should realize early on that this is going to be a book that is hard to put down. You will realize that this can be read as a stand-alone. But you will find it very hard at times not to either smile or laugh.
So if you’ve never read this series before you won’t be lost. And I hope that if this is your first read in the “Fool’s Gold” series that this will be incentive for you to read the other books. If you stop over to Susan’s web site, http://susanmallery.com/series.html, you’ll notice that she makes it easy for her readers – she breaks this series down by years.
I’m not joking when I say how easy it is to get lost in this story. I was never so happy to have a day where I had to take my father to a series of medical appointments. I got to finish this great book with only a few interruptions. But be prepared – I took him to one of our local bookstores and was getting toward the end when I started to get tears in my eyes. But luck was on my side because I could blame it on my Frappuccino. The only disappointment in the ending was that there was no picture – you’ll understand when you get to that point.
This book is a must have. If you’re a reader who still loves paperbacks and also has an e-reader, personally this is a series that is perfect to have in paperback form. With the amount of time I spent reading that day I was out with my father, my e-reader would have run out of power. Make sure to also mark your calendar; the next book will be coming out in October.
