Date Read: July 2013
Genre: Contemporary, Romance
New York Times bestselling author Susan Mallery welcomes readers back to Fool's Gold, where a one-time fling could become the real thing...
Felicia Swift never dreamed she'd hear a deep, sexy voice from her past in tiny Fool's Gold, California. The last time Gideon Boylan whispered in her ear was half a world away...on the morning after the hottest night of her life. Her freaky smarts have limited her close friendships, and romance, but she came to Fool's Gold looking for ordinary. Gorgeous, brooding Gideon is anything but that.
Black Ops taught Gideon that love could be deadly. Now he pretends to fit in while keeping everyone at arm's length. Felicia wants more than he can give-a home, family, love-but she has a lot to learn about men...and Gideon needs to be the man to teach her.
As these two misfits discover that passion isn't the only thing they have in common, they just might figure out that two of a kind should never be split apart

First Thought when Finished: Two of a kind is my favorite Fool’s Gold book to date! I swear it isn’t just because the lead character is named Felicia!
Story Thoughts: Two of a Kind just hit all the right contemporary romance spots for me: fun, sweet, quirky, original, and emotionally stunning. Felicia and Gideon’s love story was the kind of bumpy ride that I enjoy reading about. I adored all the twists/turns and seeing two people clearly made for each other both realize it. I also enjoyed connecting with the other Fool’s Gold peeps and meeting some new people. Really excited about the stories coming up in this series.
Character Thoughts: I loved Felicia when we met her Three Little Words. She was such a unique character that just stood out whenever she was on the page. Felicia has quirks! I love the quirks! I love how smart she is, how direct she is, and how clueless she is. All of these just make me smile. Gideon is a great counter to Felicia. Socially he has it more together but because of his PTSD issues, he needs someone just like Felicia. They are fantastic together. Just need to add, I think I am going to love the Sports people coming into town. I loved the lady that we met in the shop scene!

Tanya does a great job with the Fool’s Gold ladies. She makes each of them unique and has the tempo of this series down to a science. I can’t imagine anyone but her narrating these stories.
Final Thoughts: Next up is Christmas on 4th Street a novella. I am excited about Noelle’s story (I need to know her secret).
