Summer Days by Susan Mallery

Okay I am team Rafe. I have problems with  some of the people being mad at  Rafe in the book and blaming him for everything that goes wrong.  Especially his family , after all he has done for them. Okay I know its a book but it mak es me mad.
Rafe comes back to Fools gold because his mother May called and told him that the ranch she bought for 250,000. was sold to her by someone who did not own the ranch.
Heidi Simpson owns the ranch and raising goats, selling milk,cheese and fertalizer.  The ranch is worn down she does not have much money. Her grandfather Glen raised her in a carnival and now lives with her.
His friend was dying of cancer and had no insurance and he wanted to help him.  So he planned the fraud to pretend to sell Heidi's ranch.
Glen and a lot of people don't see the problem with that.
Rafe's mother worked as a housekeeper on the ranch for peanuts and the promise of inherting the ranch. They were so poor that Rafe went without food sometimes so his younger brothers and sisters could eat.  He tried to take care of the family since he was 8.  Rafe called the cops because his mother was being cheated out of the same ranch twice and now he could do somthing about it.
The judge order them to share the ranch till she could decide after some research. Heidi and May were willing to try and find a solution.
Rafe had ideas about the ranch that he thought he was buying with his mother. He was fixing up the place as he was asked to. Helped take care of Heidi animals when she was sick. Paid for all the repairs.
People were not happy with him when the others were the cheaters, lies and stealing.
Okay I got involved in the story and had strong reactions to the book. I want to read more about the town of Fools Gold.  Thier were a few love scenes in the book.

I love it! Team Jake! I want to be on his team too, but then we would have to share! Thank goodness Susan Mallery has lots of Fool's Gold books, so I will just have to pick another team. Maybe I will wait to meet the next cowboy!

I love the Fool's Gold series by Susan Mallery. All of the books are different--some are more serious, and some are downright hilarious! It keeps the story line fresh and I don't feel like "Oh, I've read this before; this is just like the last one." Rafe and his siblings lost their father at an early age and Rafe had to become the "man of the house". He's never been able to let that responsibility go. Heidi is so glad to finally have roots, after traveling most of her life, she'll do anything to stay there. I really enjoyed getting to know this new family and can't wait to meet the other siblings. Now, I just wish there was a real Fool's Gold!

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 Susan Mallery & Fool's Gold!! Rafe & Heidi has a great chemistry together even though they are both stubborn. I feel so bad for Heidi, who finally has a home of her own. Rafe swore he would never go back to Fool's Gold, but he did it for his mother. I love May. She was something else! If you are looking for a good romance book, then this is it! You won't be disappointed!
