When he finally drove onto the ranch it was to find yet another truck in by the barn. Only this one wasn't from any media outlet and what was slowly backing out of the trailer had him as open-mouthed as any cartoon character.
"You see it, too, then," Heidi said coming up beside him. "I thought maybe I had brain damage from the flu."
This is only one passage in Summer Days that made me laugh out loud. Rafe and Heidi's story is such a great read. The story is centered around Castle Ranch in Fool's Gold, California. Heidi Simpson meets Rafe Stryker when he comes to find out why his mother, May got swindled out of the ranch she thought she was purchasing from Glen, Heidi's grandfather. What follows is a story that takes you from California, to San Francisco, Los Angeles, and back again with goats, horses, sheep and more thrown in for fun.
Susan Mallery has done it again with the continuation of her Fool's Gold series. She does a great job of bringing the town and all of its characters to life. It makes you want to go visit for one of its many festivals. I definitely recommend Summer Days and any of the previous books in the Fool's Gold series to anyone who hasn't tried Susan's books before. You will not be disappointed!
