Review Summer Days by Susan Mallery
Locked in an unexpected land dispute, Rafe Stryker is trapped in the one place he vowed never to return to—the Castle Ranch in Fool’s Gold, California. He made millions facing ruthless adversaries in the boardroom, but nothing could’ve prepared him to go head-to-head against stubborn, beautiful Heidi Simpson. No one is more surprised than Rafe to discover that he’s finding Heidi—and life as a cowboy—much more compelling than he wants to admit.
For Heidi, the Castle Ranch is the home she’s always wanted. After a life on the road, the vivacious blonde has finally put down roots. She won’t give that up without a fight, not even for a man whose late-night kisses make her yearn to be a little less…wholesome.
I’m going to say first that I’m a fan of Susan Mallery. I love her work and I always enjoy it completely and totally. But I’ll be the first to say that this was a bit whackadoo and the Fools Gold scenery and the Fools Gold city and village is getting bigger and better, but its also getting a little bananas.
I mean this was great it was enjoyable but it was well it was nuts. First Heidi’s stupid grandfather sold her ranch to Rafe’s mother for $250K to help a friend with his cancer payments. Then the judge says, why don’t you, Rafe’s mom May live in the ranch with heidi and her sisters and her goat cheese and goats milk operation, and then when it looks like she’s gonna lose the farm she fakes an archeological site to keep him off the farm for awhile. Then May falls in love with Glen??? its just nucking futs. Its really just crazy and Heidi is such a doormat. I mean the person I’d go after is her grandfather, he did something selfish selling out his grand-daughters and their future.
This story was just way too much crazy for me.
