  • New York Times bestselling author Susan Mallery's classic blend of lighthearted humor and intense emotional conflict works its magic on two newcomers to the California town of Fool's Gold, which Library Journal calls "a setting so real and appealing readers will want to start scoping out real estate."

    Destiny Mills believes passion has its place—like in the lyrics of the country songs that made her parents famous. After a childhood full of drama and heartache, she wants a life that's calm. Safe. Everything that Kipling Gilmore isn't. Her temporary assignment with the Fool's Gold search and rescue team puts her in delicious proximity to the former world-class skier every day. Part of her aches to let go for once…the rest is terrified what'll happen if she does.

    Though an accident ended his career, Kipling still lives for thrills—and a hot fling with a gorgeous redhead like Destiny would be a welcome diversion. Yet beneath his new coworker's cool facade is a woman who needs more than he's ever given. With her, he's ready to take the risk. But love, like skiing, is all about trust—and before you soar, you have to be willing to fall.
    My review:  Hold Me by Susan Mallery  (Fool's Gold #16)

    3 stars 
    I wanted more meat to the characters, more resolution to the story.  The ending felt rushed.  There were a lot of love scenes.  I did like Hold Me but not love it.
    Destiny Mills has come to Fool's Gold to help set up the Hero program.  She is here for just a few months.  She wants to hide who her parents are and hide her talents.   This time it is different because
    she has her half sister Starr with her.
    Starr has come to stay with Destiny.  She had no where else to go for the summer.  Her mother died last year and her father is away on tour.  She hardly knows Destiny.  She wants to learn music.
    Kipling Gilmore is a Olympic skier who was injured bad.  He has come to Fool's Gold to run the HERO search & rescue program.  He hates the name of it.  He is also opening a bar with some other men in town.  He wants to get to know Destiny more after work is done.
    I really like the town of Fool's Gold, CA.  It is a place I would like to live or visit.  We do get to see a lot of old characters and see how they are doing.  I love how they pull together to help each other.
    I was given this ebook to read by Net Galley and Harlequin.  In return I agreed to give honest review of Hold Me.
