Three Little Words wasn't my favorite read, but I can definitely see why Susan Mallery's books are such a big hit! She definitely knows how to create beautiful settings to amazing romances. The main reason I think this story didn't work for me was that it wasn't just about Isabel and Ford. There were so many side characters with separate story's to tell I found it hard to remember who's book this was supposed to be.
Other than that I really fell for Ford, the super HOT bodyguard. He in my opinion stole the story. He was such a sweet and strong man. I do believe he was the perfect man for Isabel, even though their past is a bit messed up.
I think if I was going to read another book in the Fools Gold series I would have to start with the first book. Series that are set in small towns tend to have additional tidbits from previous couples in the earlier books, and I'd love to see their relationships bloom before I get to see glimpses of their HEA. For Fans of this series and author I'm sure this will be another hit for them, cause the story definitely wasn't lacking and the romance really did leave me with a warm and happy feeling. Which I sure is what draws readers to Ms. Mallery's books.
