Sparks fly when the sister of the bride meets the brother of the groom in this brand-new Fool’s Gold love story…

Abby Hendrix would do anything to help with her beloved sister’s wedding, even play tour guide to the off-puttingly brilliant—and unexpectedly gorgeous—brother of the groom. She’s a small-town schoolteacher; he’s a gifted surgeon. Nothing intimidating about that! She’ll just ask him to help her plan a top secret surprise for the wedding. No pressure.

Joaquin Kincaid has always been book-smart and people-awkward, and Abby’s sweet and social nature triggers an unexpected yearning inside him. His whole life, he’s been an outsider, while she’s so popular she’s able to convince an entire town to go along with her wild ideas. For the first time ever, he’s met a woman who accepts him as he is, quirks and all, and he feels himself falling in love. Could Abby love him, too? Or, when she discovers the real reason he came to Fool’s Gold, will he lose her forever?

I received this book for free from Audible in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.


I love, love, love, love Fool’s Gold, so I was excited to revisit one of my favorite small towns. It’d been a while so it took me a few minutes to place all of the characters, but as always, Ms. Mallery didn’t disappoint. This sweet, short, heartfelt read had me rooting for every awkward person who struggled with dating and finding their way in life.

Abby Hendrix was a breath of fresh air. Her energy, compassion, kindness and generosity won me over immediately. She loved her family, knew what she wanted in life and made no apologies for it. Joaquin Kincaid was anything but a typical overachiever. He’d been hurt by the people who should have loved him the most. While I didn’t like the game he was playing with our heroine, Abby, I did appreciate that he wasn’t so blind that he failed to realize true love when it slapped him in the face.

This is a cute two hour audiobook that will make your smile and restore your faith in love. Tanya Eby is one of my favorite narrators. It wouldn’t be a Fool’s Gold audiobook if she wasn’t narrating it. Grab this sweet read and watch Abby and Joaquin fall head-over-heels in love. You won’t be sorry.
