"I was born in a small town..."

With the publication earlier this week of Best of My Love, number 20 in her Fool's Gold series, author Susan Mallery has brought the most extensive and popular small-town romance series since Robyn Carr's Virgin River to a close.  With 22 novels (two Christmas titles were considered "in-betweeners"), 6 e-only novellas, and a storified cookbook, Mallery has given us plenty of opportunities to get to know the residents of Fool's Gold, California, that small (fictional) town in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada that couldn't seem to hold on to its men... until they started falling in love with them.  To my surprise, I discovered that Fool's Gold hasn't actually been around that long-- Mallery only started the series in 2010, but made up for lost time by publishing an impressive 4 to 5 titles per year.
