(ARC) REVIEW: Summer Days by Susan Mallery



Title: Summer Days (Fool's Gold #7)
Author: Susan Mallery
Publisher: HQN Books
Date Published: 5/29/12


Publisher Synopsis:
Locked in an unexpected land dispute, Rafe Stryker is trapped in the one place he vowed never to return to – the Castle Ranch in Fool’s Gold, California. He made millions facing ruthless adversaries in the boardroom, but nothing could’ve prepared him to go head-to-head against stubborn, beautiful Heidi Simpson. No one is more surprised than Rafe to discover that he’s finding Heidi – and life as a cowboy – much more compelling than he wants to admit. For Heidi, the Castle Ranch is the home she’s always wanted. After a life on the road, the vivacious blonde has finally put down roots. She won’t give that up without a fight, not even for a man whose late-night kisses make her yearn to be a little less…wholesome. As the two turn from passionate adversaries to passionate, period, they’ll discover that summer love can last a lifetime 


My Rating:



My Review:
Susan Mallery has done it again! She continues to keep the Fool's Gold Series fresh and exciting.


I absolutely adored Heidi. She was such a loveable character. When she was upset I just wanted to give her a hug. Rafe is such a mans man in a business suit and I thought that was such a great combination. Him showing up in his designer suit and then turning into a cowboy getting his hands dirty was perfect.


What a heartwarming story about what we do for those we love. Glen, Heidi, and May are such great people inside and out. I loved watching Rafe learn to love and let go of the past. 


I hope the rest of the Stryker family is next in the Fool's Gold series. I am definitely wanting to know what happens with Clay, Evie, and Shane!

Cami love the look of you page and look forward to your reviews. So glad you loved Heidi's book, I just finished it and I think the Fool's Gold stories just keep getting better and better. Susan Mallery is one of my favorite authors and I hope she shares her talent with us for a long time.

I'm proud to be one of the Fool's Gold Cheerleaders! Susan's Fool's Gold series is my absolute favorite. Not only do you wish the town and characters were real, you feel like it all is. Susan goes above and beyond other authors by giving us updates between the stories and after the HEA through her website http://foolsgoldca.susanmallery.com/ I really enjoyed Rafe and Heidi's story. Their love bloomed gradually and they were both really real characters. I look forward to reading more about our favorite fictional town this summer :D

I love the Fool's Gold series! I think that's one of the things I love most--every book is different. Like you, I can't wait to meet the rest of the family. I loved watching the transformation of Rafe in this book. And Heidi was just a powerhouse! Loved her. Can't wait to read Shane's story next. And then Chad's. Hope to meet Evie more in the following 2 books, too. Thanks for a great review!

Susan Mallery delivers again in the next Fool's Gold Series! Summer Days is a great summer read and should be on your must read list for the summer. Susan writes wonderful books, but the Fool's Gold series has you always looking forward to the next book. I enjoyed Rafe, his family and can't wait to meet his siblings in the books to come. Come on, who doesn't love hot cowboys!!! If you're looking for a series or even a fun summer read than Fool's Gold is for you! Happy Reading!

I am proud to be one of the Fool's Gold Cheerleaders!! I love the Fool's Gold Series, which is my favorite series by Susan Mallery. I love series because you get to know each of the characters throughout each of the books. Once I read "Chasing Perfect" (Book #1), I was hooked & I did not want to leave Fool's Gold. I just wished that this town was real! I love the idea of how the town people are--helping others when they need it!

If you are looking for a new book, then Summer Days is it. If you are looking for a new series, then Fool's Gold is definitely it! You will not be disappointed!!

I knew I would like Heidi when she appeared as a minor character in the last book. I'm so glad that Susan gave her a whole plotline! I can't wait for Summer nights!

This is a great book and I am so glad to read such a nice review. I agree 100%

Since May, I have also read Summer Nights. It has became my favorite of all of the Fool’s Gold books. Summer Nights is another great summer read. Annabelle is caring, a great friend, & so sweet! I love that Annabelle wanted to learn how to ride a horse for her fundraiser for her bookmobile. There is 1 thing that I absolutely love a lot & it has to do with Shane, but I am not going to give it away.
