Susan Mallery – Fool’s Gold Series Reading Order

by Maryse on June 18, 2012 · 17 comments

in Reading Order Guide:

A nice long contemporary romance series that looks heartwarming (and steamy?). I haven’t read it yet, but would love to hear what you think, if you have.

Lisa: I have read all of them except for the last one. I really enjoyed them. I started the after reading the Virgin River series by Robyn Carr since they were similar.

Sherisse: I have read the first 6 and thought they were all good. Similar to Elle Kennedy’s paradise series which is also pretty steamy;)

Maryse’s Book Blog: Thanks guys!! Looks like nice easy romantic reads between the really angst-y stuff…

Lisa: And that is exactly what it is and the reason I read it.

About book #1

Welcome to Fool’s Gold, California, a charming community in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada. There’s lots to do and plenty of people to meet, especially women. Because there’s just one tiny problem in Fool’s Gold: the men don’t seem to stick around. Maybe it’s the lure of big-city life, or maybe it’s plain old bad luck, but regardless of the reason, the problem has to be fixed, fast. And Charity Jones may be just the city planner to do it.

Charity’s nomadic childhood has left her itching to settle down, and she immediately falls in love with all the storybook town has to offer–everything, that is, except its sexiest and most famous resident, former world-class cyclist Josh Golden. With her long list of romantic disasters, she’s not about to take a chance on another bad boy, even if everyone else thinks he’s perfect just the way he is. But maybe that’s just what he needs–someone who knows the value of his flaws. Someone who knows that he’s just chasing perfect.

Fool’s Gold series is my favorite series. Once I read Chasing Perfect, I was hooked on this series. You can not read just one of these books!!! You have to read ALL OF THEM! I am now reading All Summer Long! My favorite is Summer Nights!

I came across this post 2 weeks ago and decided to give them a try…I am hooked!!! I just kept reading one after the other after the other. This is why I love your blog so much, because I normally would have turned my nose at a Harlequin romance but these books are exactly the kind of read I love! Thanks Maryse!

Are we ever going to read about Kent and Ford Hendricks and Evangeline Stryker in the Fools’s Gold series? Does Ford ever come home from deployment and is he unscarred by his combat experiences?

Judy September 18, 2012 at 9:28 AM

I read Robin Carr’s Virgin River Series, Grace Valley Series and this one.. Have loved each and every one…

Rita October 16, 2012 at 1:30 PM

I have read the entire series…Trisha: the Christmas book is about Evie Stryker. There will be another release next May. I can hardly wait.

When will Just one kiss be released?

Maryse November 24, 2012 at 11:13 AM

Hi Sandy!

The release dates are listed above, on this post. The one you are asking about indicates a release date of May 2013.

I hope that helps! :)

Hi, I’m Susan Mallery’s assistant! :) Thanks for taking the time to post this book list. It’s great! There has been a change to Susan’s schedule for 2013. Now the Fool’s Gold books will be:

June – JUST ONE KISS
July – TWO OF A KIND
August – THREE LITTLE WORDS (Trisha, Ford Hendrix is the hero of this book, and his brother Kent has a secondary romance in this book. It’s *fab-u-lous*!!! Best part of my job is that I get to read the books early. Believe me, Ford will be worth the wait!

Kathy, Fool’s Gold is only real in our hearts. :) But Susan has really made it such a rich experience that it feels real. Watch for a birth announcement at http://www.foolsgoldca.com later this week!

I was hooked into Susan mallery’s writing in Accidentally yours… Then already home… Then fool’s gold series… Finished them all in two days….(i know am a freak that way) , was hooked, and it is awesome…

Dee Myers June 23, 2013 at 7:31 PM

Just finished reading “Two of a Kind”, another great book from Susan Mallery! The “Fool’s Gold” Series is my favorite! Susan Mallery crafted a brillant character in Felicia, uber-smart, sexy, and totally inept in social situations, which creates hilarious scenes!! Gideon and Felicia make a great romantic couple!

Mona August 13, 2013 at 9:18 PM

I love this series. I have read 5 of the books so far and they are entertaining and lighthearted.

Wanda December 2, 2013 at 7:03 PM

do I need to read to read the Fool’s Gold in the order they were written

Jenel, assistant to Susan Mallery December 22, 2013 at 8:57 AM

Hi, Wanda! No, you can jump in at any time. Each book was written as a standalone.

Wanda December 23, 2013 at 10:20 AM

I have read two of the Foll’s Gold Almost Perfect and Chasing Perfect and enjoyed them with the exception of to much details with the love making. So I just hurriedly skip that part

j April 4, 2014 at 1:47 PM

I have read(and enjoyed) several of the Fools Gold books,but can not find “Almost Summer” I checked with my local library and was told this is only a “Kindle selection” ??????
