Synopsis courtesy of Goodreads
To bridal boutique owner Madeline Krug, organizing a Christmas wedding sounds like a joy—until she finds out she'll be working closely with the gorgeous brother of the bride, movie star Jonny Blaze. How will a small-town girl like her keep from falling for the world's sexiest guy? Especially with mistletoe lurking around every corner!

Jonny came to Fool's Gold looking for normal, not for love. Happily-ever-after only happens in the movies. Still, nothing about this quirky town is quite what he expected, and "ordinary" Madeline is the most extraordinary woman he's ever met. Refreshingly honest, disarmingly sweet. Achingly beautiful.

Planning the perfect wedding leads to candlelit dinners and strolls through snow-covered streets. And Madeline finds Jonny in real life even more captivating than her celebrity crush. But will the action star be brave enough to risk his heart and step into the role of a lifetime?


This is my first Susan Mallery book. I wasn't particularly blown away, but I would read more of her books in the future.

Johnny and Madeline are nice characters. They were likeable-actually really likeable. And they seemed very normal. Both of their major flaws was running away. There's nothing wrong with that, but it got kind of redundant. They both kept having the same internal conversations about Johnny being famous and it being too much to deal with.

The romance was cute. It felt a lot like a Hallmark Christmas movie-especially since there were closed door sex scenes. Personally, I like corny Christmas movies so that isn't a complaint. Looks like Susan Mallery writes a lot of Christmas books so I may stick with those for now.

While this doesn't have the same magic as say a Jill Shalvis this was a cute small-town romance.

Thanks for reading!
