"That's the thing about love. We often get more than we deserve and isn't that incredibly wonderful?"
Yet another installment of Susan Mallery's Fool's Gold series and I fall more in love with the series every book. This one is about Noelle who runs the Christmas Attic store in town. That's right a store specializing in Christmas 365 days a year. I can't help it, it warms my heart. Noelle was very sick in the recent past but has overcome it. She lost her mother and grandmother to a auto accident and her fiancé to her illness. She made her way to Fool's Gold and never looked back. She loves the town, townspeople, friends, her store and her home. But she wants her own HEA and watching her friends marry one by one is bittersweet
Gabriel Boylan is the brother of Gideon, who settled in the town a couple of years ago. Gabriel is a trauma specialist with the Army. He has worked overseas and had seen enough horror to last a lifetime. After losing his fiancé to a combat related his issue, he decides that he won't ever fall in love again because it hurts too bad to lose someone you love. He comes to his brother's house for the Christmas holiday and meets Noelle.
I so much enjoyed this book because of it's sweetness. I'll admit the ending was a little far fetched for most towns but not Fool's Gold. I can't wait for her next installment. My continued complaint regarding her separate books with this series is that the heat content is totally unacceptable.
