You Say It First: Happily Inc #1 by Susan Mallery

Susan Mallery returns to the blog today with a new series (YAY) that blends faerie tales and romance in Happily, Inc. Please read on for my review of 

You Say It First

Take 3 brothers from the Fool’s Gold series and relocate them to a little town known as a wedding destination and watch the sparks fly!

Pallas Saunders runs Weddings in a Box, a wedding planning service that specializes in out of the box, outrageously fun weddings. She loves her work, her shop and even the town, and with her cadre of girlfriends Carol, Violet, Natalie, Silver, and Wynn. Fortunately for Pallas, they are always in her corner and bring support, laughs (lots of those) and fun. And Pallas needs that with a mother like Libby – a truly despicable character that even defied the attempts to redeem her by HER OWN Father! But, that’s another story (and character) who perhaps will find some moments to lessen the distaste when she enters the room. Personally, once Pallas got into her groove and the weddings started to roll, her true enjoyment of love and celebrating it (for others, never herself) was palpable. And, you have to love the interview style!

Nick Mitchell is a sculptor, with his own issues and struggles with his own family. His brothers Ronan and Mathias have already relocated to Happily Inc, and after a big blowout with their father, Nick decides to join them after hearing how much they enjoy the little town. Nick is waiting on a big commission that will take him to Dubai for a couple of years while the piece is created and installed, and he’s not one for just sitting around. Taking a job with Weddings in a Box as the carpenter while he waits seems logical and not stressful. Unlike his growing up or the big fight with his brothers that nearly tore them all apart where the bond between Ronan and Nick finally started to be repaired.

But neither Pallas nor Nick is particularly interested in commitment or relationships for themselves – although the scent of weddings and all of that love in the air did start to work its magic on them. But, with their own histories and bad luck with close relationships, their own caution added to the slow build into a fire of the ages with this romance. And, being as crazy-good at the weird, remarkable and everything shiny for her clients, Pallas has seen it all – but would Nick’s surprise for her be too much or just right?

A lovely story full of drama, feelings, history, friends laughs and heart, keeping the feel of the Fool’s Gold series that is so beloved but giving the characters, both new and familiar, a place to grow and thrive.

The #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Fool's Gold romances invites you to visit Happily Inc., a wedding destination founded on a fairy tale

Sculptor Nick Mitchell grew up in a family of artists and learned from his volatile father that passion only leads to pain. As he waits on a new commission, he takes a day job as a humble carpenter at a theme wedding venue. The job has its perks—mainly the venue's captivating owner, Pallas Saunders. Although he won't let love consume him, for ecstasy with an expiration date, he's all in.

Pallas adores Weddings in a Box. But if she can't turn the floundering business around, she'll have no choice but cave to her domineering mother and trade taffeta for trust funds working at the family's bank. Then when a desperate bride begs Pallas for something completely out of the box, her irresistible new hire inspires her. Nick knows she doesn't belong behind a desk, and she knows in her heart that he's right—where she really belongs is in his arms.
