Summer Days-Susan Mallery

Summer Days

Susan Mallery

Harlequin HQN, May 29 2012, $7.99

ISBN: 9780373776832

Heidi Simpson loves her grandfather Glen who raised her while he worked the carny circuit, but she always dreamed of roots like a normal person. Thus she jumps at the opportunity to buy Castle Ranch in Fool’s Gold, California. She plans to raise goats in order to sell specialty cheese.

However, when Glen’s friend Harvey needed treatment for cancer, he sold part of the spread that he does not own to May Stryker for $250,000. May’s San Francisco-based CEO son Rafe threatens to send the old man to prison on fraud charges. In the courtroom, the judge orders Rafe and his mom, and Heidi and her grandfather to move onto the ranch temporarily. Neither Rafe nor Heidi expected love to further complicate the mess.

The latest Fool's Gold contemporary romance (see Summer Nights) starts a new Stryker sibling arc with a warm amusing tale as goats and the flu serve as matchmakers between two obstinate souls who are experts at botching the game of love. A secondary romance involving zebras and an elephant enhance the fun lighthearted tale of a jocular tender out of control property suit.

I love Susan Mallery & Fool's Gold!! Rafe & Heidi has a great chemistry together even though they are both stubborn. I feel so bad for Heidi, who finally has a home of her own. Rafe swore he would never go back to Fool's Gold, but he did it for his mother. I love May. She was something else! If you are looking for a good romance book, then this is it! You won't be disappointed! I can not wait for Summer Nights to come out on Tuesday, June 26th. I pre-ordered it!!
