Summer Days (Fool's Gold, Book 7)

Summer Days - Susan Mallery Read my review here on BookExhibitionism.deDear Patri­cia,the author who con­vinced you to give Con­tem­po­rary Romance nov­els was Julie James. Authors like Susan Mallery are the rea­son why I feel like that was a good choice.Sum­mer Days is set in a lovely small­town called Fool’s Gold. I usu­ally have some issues with small town set­tings because I am liv­ing in one and either think the por­trayel is over the top or way too real­is­tic. For some rea­sons, though, I had no prob­lems at all with Sum­mer Days’ set­ting and enjoyed the read a lot. It was funny, light and I now plan to one day buy myself an Elephant.The two pro­tag­o­nists of this book were on dif­fer­ent sides of a law­suit: Heidi’s grand­fa­ther stole money from Rafe’s mom for a good friend who would have died with­out the med­ical treat­ment that has been paid with the stolen money, but despite the good inten­tions, it’s still a crime, and with Rafe’s past it’s even worse.So, the con­flict felt real enough and the plot wasn’t annoy­ing despite it’s pre­dictabil­ity, plus the romance was very sweet. Sum­mer Days did not blow my mind, but I highly enjoyed it. Partly because I was in the mood, but also because Mallery really did a great job at cre­at­ing this love­able town with warm, accept­ing and car­ing people. : )Heidi and Rafe were cute together, became friends, were self-aware, had real issues and all these things that peo­ple appre­ci­ate about romance pro­tag­o­nists, but it wasn’t just them but their fam­i­lies and friends who made this novel so enjoy­able. I would even go as far and say that with­out them this book would have been mediocre.Future Self, please, please, please buy more books writ­ten by Susan Mallery! There is already one on my tbr pile, and I am pretty sure that by the time this review is finally posted (sched­uled review, yay) I will either have read it or at least feel hor­ri­bly ashamed about the fact that I haven’t. More please!Sin­cerely,Patri­cia
