My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This was received from NetGalley.
This one was an easy read, low angst high sweetness factor. I haven't read the other books in the Fool's Gold Series yet so this was my first taste of Susan Mallery.
Evie was a professional football cheerleader before a freak accident broke her leg and changed her life. As she was released from the hospital and in a drugged haze from all the pain medications, her family moved her to Fool’s Gold in an attempt to ‘help’ her. Even though it was the last place on Earth Evie wanted to be. One thing she did discover while she was there that she had a passion for teaching dance, so she was hired as an instructor at Dominique’s School of Dance. Her job was fun and she loved working with the girls until one day, the head teacher ran off with a man and left Evie with the job of planning the dance school’s annual Christmas program, The Dance of the Winter King for the entire town- a program she had never seen before or had the slightest clue what the choreography was. Add in a horrible relationship with her mother and Evie’s stress level was at an all- time high when Dante walked into her life.
Dante Jefferson was a college friend of Evie’s brother, Rafe, and had moved to Fool’s Gold just after Evie. He lived in the townhouse next to her and worked in the same building as her dance studio. Inevitably in a town that size, his path intersected with Evie’s and sparks flew. The two explored the town and their feelings for one another which only grew the more time they spent together.
Family situations, work entanglements, and the past constantly cause tension in their relationship. As Christmas approaches, things become more complicated and hearts are broken. Will a Christmas miracle to fix everything? Or is the damage beyond repair?
