Fool's Gold, California is the kind of community that people either dream of living in, or dream of escaping. Justice Garrett had the great luck to live in this small town as a teenager. For more than a decade, he has been the kind of dreamer looking for a way back. Wait a second, yes, I did just call a special ops sniper a dreamer? He has found a way to open a business, and maybe find a level of security in life that has been missing for a long time. The question has always been, can he live in Fool's Gold without hurting Patience McGraw?
Patience has endured quite a bit in life. Both her father and husband walked out on her. She is caretaker for both her child and ailing mother. Through all her struggles, one of her most painful memories has always been the day Justice disappeared.
Both believe he isn't really husband material. The reader gets to watch as one character and then the other come to the realization that actions speak louder than words. Grab a cup of coffee from Patience's new business and settle in for a late spring Saturday morning on the front porch. Surely the people of Fool's Gold have a parade planned soon. Save your spot and savor this story.
