A swoony, heart-wrenching small-town romance from USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestseller Sarina Bowen!


What I meant to do: quietly divorce my lout of a husband and then have a child all on my own.

What happens instead: my crush comes back to town when I’m at my most vulnerable. After too many cocktails, I ask him to be my baby’s father.

In my defense, it’s been a rough couple of months. Seeing Matteo Rossi again after fourteen years has done a number on my emotions. And my libido.

In the morning, I’m hoping he’s forgotten the whole thing. But no such luck. In fact, Matteo has a few clarifying questions. And a few naughty ideas, too


What I meant to do: visit Vermont for my brother’s wedding. Make amends to my family, and mourn the loss of a friend.

What happens instead: a hot affair with the one who got away. But it can’t last. My life is two thousand miles away, and Leila deserves everything. She’s as
good as gold.

ARC received for an honest review
Sarina Bowen's World of True North is the gift that keeps on giving.  

First the Shipley family, then the Rossi family, and now the Rossi/Giltmakers come together to give us another fantabulous story.
Leila and Matteo are the perfect example of friends reuniting to become lovers - but man so many wasted years!

I love how they love each other, support each other through their troubles, and most of all, finally remove heads from sphincters and become what everyone has known they should be - a "them!"

Loved seeing more of the Shipley and Rossi extended clan.

Do yourself a favour and pick up Good As Gold, you won't be disappointed.

Leila + Matteo

Twenty years ago they, plus their friend Rory, where besties who did everything together. But there was that pact that neither Rory nor Matteo would ever date Leila.
But then Matteo left after highschool to make something of himself and Rory and Leila started dating. Got married.
Matteo never came back.
Until now. To his brother's wedding.
And Leila is there too. Freshly divorced and ready to fulfill her lifelong dream of becoming a mom. 


That was so cute!
I just love Sarina's Vermont books. I want to move there and drink all the Shipley cider and eat all the maple thingies I can get my hands on!
Leila and Matteo are so adorable. They wasted so much time! They could've been happily married for over a decade but ... nope.
But now they get a second chance.
I loved reading this. It was so fun and sweet and heartwarming and sparky and sexy and vermonty and beery and so full of family and friends and all the things!

GOOD AS GOLD was such an adorable + sweet + funny + sparky + sexy + emotional + beery Vermonty Love Story! Run to your nearest bookdealer for your own Matty - this one is MINE!
