Hold Me (Fool’s Gold)

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.

  2. 3.5 stars Not My Favorite ¯_(ツ)_/¯ Fool’s Gold doesn’t disappoint. It follows the basic formula of Ms Mallery’s and that is a very good thing. We have the typical two people who are damaged in some way –either emotionally or physically –and in this book we have one of each. Kipling was an Olympic skier who was critically hurt in a skiing accident and Destiny is the product of a seriously dysfunctional family best known for their chart topping country western music and affairs. 

  3. Surprised I didn’t enjoy this one more Wow, I have to say I am really surprised I didn’t love this one more. Usually Mallery can do no wrong but this one totally missed the mark for me. I never really connected with either Destiny or Kipling. I thought Destiny did make poor choices in regards to being a sister at the beginning. Granted she has her half-sister dumped on her but I would think most people would realize how disconcerting it could be for a 15 yr old to be dumped with basically a total stranger, in a new place and…
