We met both Justice and Patience in previous installments in the series, but this book brought them into much deeper focus. It also introduced two new business, which play key roles in both the town and Justice & Patience’s lives. Brewhaha and Cerberus Defense School are just two examples of how Susan Mallery has given the town of Fool’s Gold a life all its own. It isn’t just the individual characters that keep readers coming back to see what’s going on, but the entire town. Ms. Mallery has created a real time environment that is so inviting that her loyal fans clambore for news even between books, and it is a great perk that we are given periodic updates on the lives of the citizens of Fool’s Gold, California.
The next book in the series has already been released and I can’t wait to squeeze it into my To Be Read schedule!
