Best of My Love ~ Susan Mallery ~ NEW RELEASE & REVIEW

An irresistible new love story from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Fool's Gold series, set in a town Library Journal calls "so appealing, readers will want to start scoping out real estate." 

To overcome her painful past, baker Shelby Gilmore goes on the hunt for a friend—a male friend—to convince her stubborn psyche that men can be trusted. But where in a town as small as Fool's Gold will the petite blonde find a guy willing to not date her? 

Dark, charming Aidan Mitchell puts the "adventure" in Mitchell Adventure Tours…and into the beds of his many willing female tourists. Until he realizes he's inadvertently become that guy—the one-night Casanova—and worse, everyone in town knows it. Maybe Shelby's boy/girl experiment will help him see women as more than just conquests so he can change his ways and win back his self-respect. 

 As Aidan and Shelby explore the secret lives of men and women, the heat between them fires up the Fool's Gold rumor mill. If no one will believe they're just friends, maybe they should give the gossips something to really talk about!

4 Stars - Would Recommend to a Friend

In Best of My Love, we head to Fool's Gold for the last (?) time and follow Shelby and Aidan, both of whom have appeared in other books as secondary characters. Shelby survived an abusive childhood and has flourished since moving to Fool's Gold, but her life is missing "something." Aidan grew up in the community, but had his own challenges. A bad run in with a former fling has him wanting to change things in his life. Shelby's plan that they be "just friends" so that they can learn about the opposite sex is just too good to be true!

The story that follows takes a fun and sweet look at the idea of if men and women can really be "just friends." I loved watching these two together. From the first awkward attempts to spend time together to the natural progression of a relationship neither of them even realized they had, we had funny and sweet moments. There were also emotionally revealing times as both Shelby and Aidan dealt with the family relationships that colored their views of love.

Best of My Love definitely ends the Fool's Gold series on a high note while also setting up a potential new series for the other Mitchell brothers. If you are new to Fool's Gold, you'll be able to read this as a stand alone and enjoy it. If you have been a loyal Fool's Gold reader, you will love the cameo appearances by several characters we haven't seen in a while.
