  • Welcome to the Festival Capital of the World!

    I have enjoyed the entire series, even when I had to backtrack from reading one of the anthologies a time or two because a character casually referenced her husband/fiancé/committed relationship partner, and I thought, "Hey, I missed that story!" Just as well there's a full reading list on Ms Mallery's website. I appreciate that the characters throughout this series have covered a wide range of occupations and character types in a small mountain town (perhaps not typically those at the security guard school) and I love that Eddie and Gladys, definitely not your sexually repressed octogenarians, have turned out to be fairy godmothers. I wish that when I taught in a small rural town (800 in town, 2000 in the district), that we had had a Jo's bar in which to celebrate. Through the series I have gotten to see the annual cycle of festivals, some typically American and some typically Fool's Gold, over a number of years and the development of many favourite characters. Though Thanksgiving isn't celebrated here in Australia and where I live has the Fisher's Ghost Festival in November, it really isn't Halloween, this series has given me a greater perspective on the northern/western hemisphere cycle of events, although Christmas is a lot warmer here. I am really glad Percy got a mention in this book because Melissa and he were caught together in one book and then interviewed for the Fool's Gold Destination for Romance video promotion in another book. (Mind you, Priscilla and Reno were also 'interviewed' for that video!) And how exciting that through Aidan's book, I know there is a parallel series set in Happily Inc so I have three of his brothers to follow up. Melissa and Abby are the oldest of the children featured in the Fool's Gold series so I am hoping that as the other children 'come of age' that they will also have their own stories. Lastly, I wish the cookbook was still available in print...

    Thanks for your feedback!
