As my inaugural post, I want to share how much fun I have reading books by Susan Mallery. Her newest book, Summer Days, is out this week and it's a fun, engaging read that kept me up a little late because I had to finish it the same day I started it.
The story focuses on Heidi, who raises goats just outside of Fool's Gold on a ranch she put all of her savings into buying. Now the ranch is at risk because of her grandfather and his not-quite-legal idea for helping a friend finance his fight against cancer. From the beginning of the tale, you definitely wanted to keep reading just to find out whether Heidi will be able to keep the ranch or not.
The characters are fun, a little different from the people next door, but believable enough you wish you could meet them. Even Heidi's goats have personality! Fool's Gold is also a place you wish you could visit and/or live in. While I know that not all small towns are true communities where people want to help each other, it's such a great dream to have.
I hope you'll check out Susan's books. I also hope you'll come back and find some more books to read.
