There's nowhere better to spend the holidays than with New York Times bestselling author Susan Mallery in the town of Fool's Gold, where love is always waiting to be unwrapped… Noelle Perkins just got a second chance at life, and she intends to make the most of every minute. That's why she ditched a frustrating legal career to open her own store in Fool's Gold, California. The Christmas Attic celebrates everything that's magical about her favorite season. Business is booming, and as a bonus, gorgeous army doctor Gabriel Boylan has offered to help out during the holiday rush. Gabriel's memories of Christmas past contain more sour grapes than sugar plums, thanks to a drill sergeant father who ran his home like a boot camp. Spending the holidays with his family while he recuperates from injury sounds as appetizing as last year's eggnog. Still, there are some enjoyable distractions in town, including sunny, sexy Noelle…and the red-hot mistletoe kisses they can't stop sharing. Gabriel didn't think he was made for happily-ever-afters. But when fate hands you a love as sweet and surprising as this, only a fool could refuse….
After twelve books, I am still just as much in love with Fool’s Gold as I have ever been! And it’s the perfect place to spend Christmas! (No really, I wish I could pack up my family and spend Christmas in Fool’s Gold!)
This newest story features Noelle, the owner of The Christmas Attic and Gabriel, Gideon’s twin brother. And I have to say I loved both of them from their very first scenes!
Gabriel is seeing his family for the first time in years, having grown up in a high pressure family – where he had no choice but to go into the Military, because that’s what Boylan Men do. (And I have to say, I adored the whole side story of the Boylan’s, as well as getting to see Felicia and Gideon (Two of a Kind) now that they are well into their relationship and planning their wedding!
I adored this book, every single moment of it! (And while it’s well into September and still in the upper 80′s in Southern Colorado? I really appreciated the heavy snow storm!! )
If you aren’t already a fan of Susan Mallery’s Fool’s Gold series? You should be! These books are fantastic, each one leaves you anxious for the next!
