Isabel Beebe thinks she’s cursed in the romance department. Her teenage crush, Ford Hendrix, ignored all her letters. Her husband left her for another…man. So Isabel has come home to dust off her passion for fashion and run the family bridal shop until her parents are ready to sell it. Then she’ll pursue her real dreams. At least, that’s the plan, until sexy, charming Ford returns and leaves her feeling fourteen all over again…..
Seeing Isabel all grown-up hits bodyguard trainer Ford like a sucker punch. Back when heartbreak made him join the military, her sweet letters kept him sane. Now he can’t take his eyes—or his lips—off her. The man who gave up on love has a reason to stay in Fool’s Gold forever—if three little words can convince Isabel to do the same.
Review: Without a doubt, this is my all time favorite Susan Mallery novel. I have been waiting for Ford’s novel since he was first introduced as a character. There is something about Ford that makes him super endearing and lovable. I wanted to fix him and take his problems. You feel sorry for him because his mother wants to marry him off to stay in Fool’s Gold.
Isabel is a super adorable character who has been in love with Ford since she was 14. She doesn’t believe Ford would ever love her back. Little does she know!
Three Little Words has all of Mallery’s usual charms. A wonderful love story with glimpses of past main characters, humor and wit. All her novels are charming but this one was extra sweet. A long awaited love is one of my favorite love stories. I’m always jealous of the characters that finally find love with the ones that they have loved most of their adult life.
I would totally read this again as well as recommend the book to all my fellow romance lovers!!! I cannot wait till next year’s Fool’s Gold installments.
