Charity Jones has her work cut out
for her. Taking the job as a city planner for the town of
Fool’s Gold, California seemed like a good idea at the time.
Fool’s Gold seems to have all the elements to be successful,
from the great location to charming residents. The only
problem seems to be a shortage of men. Whether it’s a lack
of appeal that keeps men from staying, or a curse that no
one knows about, it presents a real problem. Now everyone is
hoping Charity’s desire to make Fool’s Gold her home will
bring the solution the town so desperately needs.
Former world-class cyclist Josh
Golden loves his hometown. He is able to run his multiple
businesses, has his pick of women, and the general support
of everyone around him, yet no one is able to see the truth
behind his façade except Charity. From the moment Charity
and Josh meet there is an unmistakable desire and quiet
trust between them and both fight it every step of the way.
When life throws them an unexpected turn will they overcome
their fears in order to build a future together?
Susan Mallery creates a charming
world in Chasing Perfect. It has a perfect
blend of clever characters, secondary storylines and enough
twists in the plot to keep the pages turning. Chasing
Perfect is the kind of book you just want to curl up
with in front of a cozy fire and settle in for a story that
will tug the heartstrings as you see the main characters’
scars heal as hope blossoms within them. Although one of the
character’s future was unresolved, I am hopeful it will be
addressed in the sequel.
