There’s no place like Happily Inc for the holidays…
Wynn Beauchene has a thriving business, a great kid and a mildly embarrassing crush on the guy next door—local cop Garrick McCabe. She’s a strong, independent woman who can’t help dreaming what-if about a man she barely knows. Until he needs her help…
Garrick’s pregnant daughter will be home for Christmas, and his house needs a woman’s touch. Garrick and his little girl were tight once and he’s hoping a small-town Christmas will bring her back to him. But thawing his daughter’s frosty attitude will take more than a few twinkle lights. Maybe sharing the holiday with Wynn and her son will remind her of the joy of family.
As the season works its magic on these wounded souls, Wynn realizes it’s time to stop punishing herself for a painful secret, while Garrick remains haunted by the ghosts of past mistakes. Will he allow Wynn to open the only gift she truly wants—his heart?
Happily This Christmas is the sixth book in the Happily Inc series. However, this is the first book in this series that I have read. I believe you can still enjoy it despite not recognizing the other characters.
Wynn Beauchene is a single mother. Her son is fourteen. Lately, she has been thinking that it might be a good time to start dating again. The last time she dated was before she conceived her son. Her sexy cop neighbor fits the bill and she might need to finally make a move to get his attention. Just as she is thinking of this, her doorbell rings and Mr. Cop is at her front door.
GarrickMcCabe is in need of help, his very pregnant estranged daughter is coming to stay with him and he wants to make his house homier. Enlisting the help of Wynn is a no-brainer. More so, once he starts getting to know her, he begins thinking that they could make a good couple. Her humor, her relationship with her son, her dedication to her work are all things he admires in her. It doesn't hurt that he also likes the way she looks.
Can Garrick patch the problems with his daughter? Do Garrick and Wynn want to take the next step to become more? Well, maybe the Christmas spirit can help this couple.
This is a perfect romance to read during the Christmas season!
Susan Mallery's novels are always charming and sweet. They are set in small towns. Every time I read one of her books, I think how lovely it would be to live in a small town where everyone knows each other and people are helpful to their neighbors. Of course, who knows if this type of town actually does exist. I hope it does.
