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?
Jonny and Madeline both have hearts of gold. Sweet, caring people who put others before themselves. Ex: Jonny paid and helped organize his only sister’s wedding. He donated toys he carved with his own two hands to the holiday toy drive. He also adopted an 8 year old dog, Raven. A dog everyone thought would be hard to place. Not so hard when bighearted Jonny was asked to take care of her and the two of them bonded. And Madeline? She put the happiness of her client’s over a quick, easy buck. Plus, she helped organize Ginger’s (Jonny’s sister) wedding for free. Well, actually she asked Jonny to donate the money he was going to give her to a charity. See, a heart of gold!!
As loving and sweet as these two were, they weren’t my two favorite characters from the story. Oh no, that prize goes out to my two feisty gals — Gladys and Eddie. These two women, of a more mature age, run a public access tv show where they actually got viewers to vote on whose naked butt they were featuring. And through some teasing about a butt double on one of Blaze’s movies, they had managed to get the actor to drop trou. Man, these women are a total hoot and I can see myself behaving like them when I reach my golden years. LOOOOOOOVE THEM!!
