Book Review by Tracy Farnsworth
It's Evie Stryker's turn for finding true love in the charming town of Fool's Gold. Evie grew up never fitting in with her older brothers, and she certainly never felt much in the way of affection from her mother. Following an injury, Evie is back in Fool's Gold, with no intentions on sticking around. She gets a little more than she bargained for when the head of the dance studio she's working at takes off. There are just weeks to the annual Christmas presentation and Evie doesn't know a thing about the production.
Evie has another struggle to deal with. Her mom wants to make amends, and Evie isn't sure she's read or willing. Add in the attraction to her brother Rafe's business partner, Dante Jefferson, and Evie quickly finds her life being turned upside down.
There are two things I love about the Fool's Gold series. First, I adore getting to see how couples from previous books are progressing. Then there are the main characters who find themselves in a relationship, but not sure if it's the right thing for them at the time. It's so much fun seeing these characters you've met in previous books find their own chance at lasting romance.
I liked Evie. She's tough, but also jaded because of her past. Dante's a bit of an idiot at times, but he's a good match for her. I also liked seeing some characters who have their own stories out there, just waiting to be read.
