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.
