    I found myself laughing as this one opened up, can't imagine turning up for a job interview and have it turn so quickly. I liked that even after the unexpectedness of the situation Nick was still interested in the job. I have to say that I didn't really like Pallas at first, she was sort of meh.... It was only as she got excited about doing crazy weddings that Pallas became more interesting. I loved how Pallas jumped in, how she turned to her fri...

    Famous sculptor Nick Mitchell decides to live with his brothers in Happily, Inc, “an entire town devoted to the destination wedding,” for a while before a huge international commission that he is confident he will get (He is a ‘Mitchell’, after all) will whisk him off to Dubai for two years. There, he decides to take up a temporary job with wedding planner Pallas Saunders. Little did he know that his first gig would be to bronze up and ca...

    A wonderful start to a new series by Susan Mallery, one of my favorite authors. There were links to Fool's Gold, another favorite series from Mallery, with three of the Mitchell brothers making Happily, Inc. their new home. It was fun to learn how the small town was named and got its start and how Pallas' family had a stake in the town from the beginning.Pallas is the owner of Weddings in a Box that she inherited from a family friend. Happily, In...

    This was a charming offshoot of the Fool's Gold series. I didn't have the frustration from that series that SO MANY people recurred in the stories. Don't get me wrong, there is a LOT of sequel-bait in this book but they were woven in well, and there is a nice, built-in explanation for why we'd see some of these people again.It seems in the 1960s, our heroine's grandfather, wanting to help the town's economy, made up a story about a stagecoach bre...

    I keep wavering between rating this as 2 or 3 stars.I have put as 2 because even though I read the entire thing, I am not remotely satisfied by it.I normally enjoy this author but I just found this one incredibly lacking in a lot of areas.I loved the premise of the story and was looking forward to it.However, it just fell flat in the end. I didn't "get" the connection between the main characters of Nick and Pallas (also how on earth do i pronounc...

    I was given an ARC from NetGalley and decided to voluntarily write a review.You Say It First is the first book in Susan Mallery's new series Happily, Inc. Mallery starts off the series with a familiar face, Nick Mitchell.. No one creates a small town of memorable characters like Susan Mallery. While Happily Inc. may not be Fool's Gold, it still has all the things we've come to love in small towns. An interesting town history, quirky people and ro...

    This is a great start to the new Happily Inc. series! We first met all of the Mitchell brothers in Fools Gold, but now the final unattached three are living in Happily Inc. Nick is waiting to hear about a large commission so he applies for a carpentry job working for Pallas at Weddings In a Box. His interview is not quite what he expected, but in the end he can't pass up the chance to restore some beautiful wood panels.Nick and Pallas connect and...
  • Kimberly Lund
    I keep reading this author thinking I must be missing something because she's so popular. I just think she's a little too light on the angst -- I do like for there to be a little trouble on the way to true love -- and a little too quick on the resolutions. And that's my personal preference, so maybe this author isn't for me. I do like the idea of Happily Inc and a business built around weddings... because what romance reader wouldn't? But I'm not...

    Pallas runs a specialized wedding business and she hires Nick as a carpenter to help with her business. He's a famous artist and doesn't really need the work, but is in between jobs and needs something to do. Pallas' mom wants her to work at the bank and thinks she should sell the wedding business. There is a lot of tension between Pallas and her mom, which is all revealed within the story.I really enjoyed the different theme weddings and the art...

    I am a big Susan Mallery fan and this being the first book in a new series (Happily Inc) makes me happy. Pallas loves her wedding business and when a bride wants a very unusual wedding she jumps into action. Nick and his family are all artistic and he agrees to help Pallas with a small problem that leads to a very heavy romance. Nick is very commitment shy and worries Pellas is playing with him. Lots of characters for more romances. A light easy ...
  • Diane Saul
    This is the first in a new series called Happily Inc. It features Pallas, the owner of Weddings In A Box and Nick a world renowned sculptor. If you enjoyed the Fools Gold series you will enjoy this first entry into this new series. It is a light, fast read with a predictable happy ending, a good read for the beach. There are plenty of characters in the story for future books in the series. I would give the book 3 1/2 stars. Thank you to net galle...
  • Justareader
    2.5 starsBook serves as an intro to a "new" series (Fool's Gold lookalike really).The characters were sweet and charming and somewhat funny. Pretty bland and squicky clean if you know what I mean.I'm over that kind of read, I should have known , my bad.
  • Chantal Ostiguy
    The story is just what you expect from Susan Mallery. Always enough romance and family connections. It's interesting to have a kind of follow up with Fool's Gold. Love the book! I had an ARC copy from Netgalley and was glad to be able to read it. Wonderful book.
