Can first love turn into the real deal? Anything can happen in a sizzling new Fool's Gold story from New York Times bestselling author Susan Mallery.
Can first love turn into the real deal in a sizzling new Fool's Gold story from New York Times bestselling author Susan Mallery? Isabel Carlisle 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 fourteen 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.
Three Little Words was my first introduction to Susan Mallery as well as Fool’s Gold, the fictional town she brilliantly created and it most certainly won’t be my last.
Even though Isabel Carlisle’s sister was engaged to Ford Hendrix it didn’t stop Isabel from writing to him when he joined the Navy after her sister called off the engagement. Isabel continued writing to him until she married. Now divorced and living back at her parents’ home, Isabel discovers that they have rented the apartment over the garage to Ford.
When Ford and Isabel enter into an arrangement to ‘pretend date’ for his mother’s benefit, they a few perks for themselves along the way.
Although this was my first time reading a Fool’s Gold novel, the characters and the setting had a warm and inviting feel, which could explain why I went out and purchased the previous 11 books in the Fool’ Gold series. While Three Little Words is part of a series and subseries, it reads as a stand-alone book and I had no trouble following along.
I have to say that the chemistry between Ford and Isabel was amazing.
