Can first love turn into the real deal? Anything can happen in a sizzling new Fool's Gold story from New York Times bestselling author Susan Mallery. 

Isabel Beebe thinks she's cursed in the romance department. Her teenage crush, Ford Hendrix, ignored all her letters. Her husband left her for another…man. So Isabel has come home to dust off her passion for fashion and run the family bridal shop until her parents are ready to sell it. Then she'll pursue her real dreams. At least, that's the plan, until sexy, charming Ford returns and leaves her feeling fourteen all over again….. 

Seeing Isabel all grown-up hits bodyguard trainer Ford like a sucker punch. Back when heartbreak made him join the military, her sweet letters kept him sane. Now he can't take his eyes—or his lips—off her. The man who gave up on love has a reason to stay in Fool's Gold forever—if three little words can convince Isabel to do the same.

    I am huge Susan Mallery fan. And her Fools Gold series are the best. But Three Little Words just pulls the heart strings and has a way of keeping you engrossed. You can relate with the characters as you root for them. I loved this book and can't wait for the next in the series to be released.
  • Great Book!

    This book is a 2 in one romance. It's a great quick read and can stand alone or be read as part of the series. I only wish it was longer. Enjoy!
  • Three Little Words - I LOVED IT!

    Here are my Three Little Words - I loved it! Denise Hendrix finally gets her wish as her last two sons find love. Getting two romances in one book is just icing on the cake! This summer of the bodyguards has been incredible and these have been my favorite books of the entire series!
  • Welcome Home! Another Blockbuster Hit!

    After 14 years Isabel must face her first love again. She wrote him regularly for 10 years and he never responded...not even once. Now they're both back in Fools Gold and its apparent that they can't avoid each other forever... Ford's mother is desperate for more grandchildren and she'll do whatever it takes to get her two single sons married. Ford realizing he can't hide from his mother forever convinces Isabel to be his fake girlfriend to get his mother off his back. Before long they have the whole town convinced that they are a couple...everyone except themselves...will this fake relationship expose some very real feelings? Was Isabel's childhood crush the reason she's never had a satisfying relationship? What will happen when these two stubborn hearts collide...well you know in fools Gold there is always a Happily Ever After... Susan Mallery has a gift of pulling you into her stories and this time is no different. Who wouldn't wanna shop at Paper Moon for their wedding dress, eat lunch with the girls at Jo's, grab their morning coffee and gossip at Brewhaha and most especially, who wouldn't wanna live in a town with so many sexy men?!?!? Grab your glass of wine, lock the door, and settle down for the next installment of Fools Gold goodness.
  • Susan Mallery can't write fast enough for me!

    By Hilarymichele
    I loved this book! I have loved all of the Fool's Gold books and everything else that Susan Mallery has written. I love the Fool's Gold series because you get to know a character even before they get "their book." Then they continue to play a role in the community and you continue to see them and their lives. I feel connected to this made up town and yes, I realize that is ridiculous. Anyway, this book was great - I read it straight through (no bio breaks or anything) in just under 4 hours and now I am waiting very impatiently for the next book! Can't wait for Taryn (and her boys) to get their stories and I am dying to know Noelle's story. Write quickly Susan!

    All of Susan Mallery's books leave you wanting the next one. The characters of Fool's Gold are endearing. The town is charming. I always love to see what Jo is going to blend up next at the comfort party.
  • Fool's Gold is my favorite place to be!!!

    By Cheryl SDS
    Yes! I am happy to have visited Fool's Gold once again :) Susan Mallery continues to get better and better with every book in this series. Isabel and Ford are two of my favorite Fool's Gold characters and this is their story. Ford needs a pretend girlfriend to get his mother off his back about getting married and settling down. He chooses Isabel. The pages start steaming up from there ;) Will Ford stand firm to his belief that he doesn't have the ability to love? Will Isabel be able to break down Ford's emotional walls? You will definitely have tons of fun reading about the outcome of Isabel and Ford's "pretend" relationship. Another wonderful thing in this book is that there is a romance going on in the background of this story. Read this awesome Summertime book and find out who else is falling in love in Fool's Gold.

    Susan has delivered another fabulous visit to Fool's Gold. I laughed and cried as Isabel and Ford found love. Characters from past novels circulated throughout while new residents to Fools Gold were introduced (including some foreshadowing of next summers novels.

    Isabel Beebe left Fool’s Gold to follow her dream of being in the fashion business. Now she is back to help her parents with their store and get it ready to be sold to a new owner. Little does she know that the man she loved when she was 14 would come back in to her life... Ford Hendrix never thought he would step into Fools gold again after Maeve Beebe broke off their engagement and he joined the military. But now with his business open and running in Fool’s Gold now is the perfect time to come back to his hometown and reconnect with his family and friends. However, he never imagined that the girl who wrote him letters for ten years would also come back in to his life. Together Isabel and Ford start a “fake relationship” to get his mother Denise off his back about getting married but neither of them realize that their just might be something there that might just be more than friendship. Being the last in the three book series for this summer you never want the book to end because then you remember that you have to wait until September and Christmas time before you can read more books in this great series. As it has been with the past couple three book series that past couple summers this book, the third in this series was my favorite. I really liked how Susan built up their relationship from the beginning to the end. What I thought was different from the rest of the books that I read in the series was the letters that started out the book. It was an unexpected great add to the book. In addition I really like the story of Kent and Consuelo budding love story that you got to see through out the book. Lastly, I liked how the last two Hendrix boys got their girls in the same book! I don’t think there would be anything that I would change in this book other than maybe divulging a little more about Ford’s past. By reading the letters you were able to read about Isabel’s past but not Fords. I felt there could have been a little more added. As usual her writing and characters were spectacular and I can’t wait to see what she has in store for Noelle’s story that will take place in the Christmas book. If I were to give it a rating I would say 5 stars!!!
