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
This is a Christmas Romance book, and this is the 6st book in the Happy Inc series. I was so happy to be in Happy Inc again. I have read most the other books in this series, but I do not think a have posted reviews for them. Susan Mallery is one of my favorite authors. This book was a fun and cute Christmas book. It had romance, drama, and most everything I want in a Christmas love story. The only thing I want more was more of the story. I wish it did not end when it did. I loved the characters ...more

Favorite Quotes:

His words made her feel a little floaty, which was silly. She was in some serious trouble here— she hadn’t been this flaky even in high school. If she wasn’t careful, she was going to start flipping her hair and saying “like” in every sentence.

Most guys don’t like shopping, which I’ve never understood. All you have to do is pretend you’re hunting. You stalk, you pounce, you strap it to the car and take it home. A total win, but men don’t see it that way.

Wynn did her best to keep

HAPPILY THIS CHRISTMAS (Happily Inc Book #6) by Susan Mallery is the latest installment in the Happily Inc. contemporary romance series set in Happily Inc, a wedding destination themed town. I love when these books are set around the Christmas season and I get to visit all the characters again. This can be read as a standalone, but many of the characters overlap in this small town and I have enjoyed reading them in order.

Mallery never disappoints and this fun, fast read was perfect on a cool afternoon wrapped in a quilt. I loved Garrick the perfect dad and swoon worthy boyfriend. Grab this one and enjoy a fun afternoon read.

2.5 - "I’m going to spend the rest of my life having your back." Stars.

We return to Happily Inc for book six; Happily This Christmas finally giving us Wynn Beauchene’s story. I have to say that after the last book in the series; Meant to Be Yours being such a car crash read for me, I started this book with a large amount of trepidation.

My rating tells you that I didn't find Wynn and Garrick’s book a great read either, although as much as I almost DNF’d it @ around the halfway point, the second h
Angela (Angel's Guilty Pleasures)
For those that don't know me I'm not a big contemporary romance reader/listener. They just don't have a pull on me like RS, UF, or PNR do. Maybe it's how low key they are or how there is no suspense or adventure. It usually takes me a month to get through a CR and this one was no different.

Happily This Christmas is book six in the Happily Inc. series by Susan Mallery and narrated by Tanya Eby. It's cute, happy and a bit cliche.

This was my first taste of Mallery and the Happily Inc. series. I h
Tabatha (tab.talks.books)
Cute book! Very cliche and happy, which is what I like to read around the holidays. However, seemed TOO good to be true. The relationship with Wynn and Hunter just seemed so idealistic. That kid was like a present day Jesus. Her disappointment with him seemed so mature if that makes sense lol. Joylynn was nice to see her progression from bratty annoying AF kid to a nice mature adult. The ending was great, it was cute. Garrick seemed like the total hunky police officer. It was an all aroun

Enjoyable, feel good novel! I love visiting Happily Inc and the crew of people who live here! Wynn has appeared in past stories with little information about her and her son, Hunter. This book is about them and her happily-ever-after! With a cop next door, no wonder the book opens with her fantasizing about him! I liked how we didn't have to wait until the end to get to them being together. It was more like halfway through and then how they worked at it until the end. Joylyn was a brat and didn' ...more

Garrick's 21-year-old pregnant daughter is coming to stay with him while her husband is deployed. He asks his next-door neighbor Wynn to help make his house comfortable for Joylyn's stay. Garrick and Wynn become friends and then move into an easy, slow romance. At the same time, Wynn befriends Joylyn and helps her through the later parts of her pregnancy since she does not have any friends in town and her husband is away.

I always marvel at how well Ms. Mallery writes the interactions between her

The sixth book in the Happily Inc. series was a fun Christmas romance. I enjoyed visiting old friends as Wynn and Garrick travel together experiencing family drama, friendships, romance and Christmas in a lovely small town.

I voluntarily offered to review this book with no obligations and my opinions are honest
It was a great book!
It was such a heartwarming Christmas book.
Garrett asked for Wynn's help in decorating his house for Christmas.
His daughter was coming to town.
Wynn jumped at the chance, since she always had a crush on him.
Will Wynn + Garrett realize that they are perfect Christmas gift for each other?
The characters + storytelling were very captivating
It has all the ingredients that you need for an awesome

This was a super sweet 'next-door-neighbors with older kids', romance. I have never seen two such perfect parents, one perfect or nearly so 14-year-old and one unlikeable to the point of hating 21-year old that eventually grows and becomes likable.

This was a fun and steamy read, but the many issues I had with it took away a lot of my enjoyment.

Much awaited story did not disappoint!
I’ve been waiting for Wynn’s story FOREVER! And the best news is, it didn’t disappoint! Wynn and Garrick are neighbors. Wynn is a single mom of Hunter and Garrick is expecting his pregnant daughter to visit. The story just rolls from there. And I mean rolls, Mallery keeps you laughing with this one! In fact, I felt like the ending came a little too quickly for me!

I received an ARC for an honest review.

I love Susan Mallery’s writing and her Happily Inc series is a book I look forward to reading each time a new one comes out.
Happily This Christmas made for a beautiful Christmas read. Certainly made me think of the holiday season coming up. I needed this story in my life right now.
Family love is the most heartwarming and prevalent aspect in Susan Mallery’s series.
Definitely pick this book up if you are in the mood for a sweet, holiday romance. Though I would recommend reading the other books in

I loved this one! It was festive, feel good, and so charming! This was everything you are looking for in a Christmas romance. The characters are so likable and I found myself smiling throughout. It’s heartwarming and absolutely lovely. It’s brimming with Christmas cheer and will absolutely put you in the holiday spirit.

A story of friendship and love and learning to communicate. Garrick and Wynn have been neighbors for a while but it takes his pregnant daughter coming to stay for them to get to know each other. Will the friendship turn to something else?

A wonderful, heartwarming Christmas book about love and family. The main characters, Garrick and Wynn, were each struggling with the mistakes of their past, and it was fun getting to know them and watch their friendship bloom, and see how they navigated through the rough waters of parenthood and a new relationship.

This is the sixth book in the Happily Inc series, yet Susan Mallery seamlessly drops us into Wynn Beauchene’s life for some holiday romance and cheer.

Wynn runs a designer business, “Happily Inc,” she’s a single mom to Hunter and she’s sweet as a peppermint candy. Truth is though, she has a bit of a crush on her next-door neighbor, Garrick McCabe. But relationships haven’t gone well for Wynn since Hunter’s dad, fourteen years ago.

She has noticed her next door neighbour, Garrick a police officer who lives alone, particularly when he’s shirtless while cutting his lawn.

I know that it is almost Halloween, but who doesn't love a Christmas book anytime of the year? Happily This Christmas is the 6h book in the series but works well as a stand alone. Out of the six books, this one is probably my favorite. I have been looking forward to Wynn's story from the beginning. She is a single mom who has never seemed to want a permanent relationship and has been very protective of her son. Garrick is the cop who lives next door and recruits Wynn to help him get his home rea ...more

From the relatable life lessons nestled into the storyline to the familiar faces we love who helped out those in need, Susan Mallery delivered a charming holiday-themed romance in the most perfect of settings: Happily Inc.

I’ve been looking forward to reading Happily This Christmas anyway, but even more so since I saw it was Wynn’s story. Her dynamic within the close group of local friends will probably make more sense if you’ve read some previous book

The neighbor next door, handsome and intriguing, suddenly needs your help to turn his house into a home for his daughter who is visiting. With Christmas right around the corner, you scramble to help get things in place to provide a warm welcome, despite the cold chill outside. The lights are aglow, a fire crackles, the ornaments sparkle on the tree. Everything looks perfect for her arrival.

Happily This Christmas was a miss for me. While the premise was sweet, it just wasn’t orchestrated well. Sc

Author Susan Mallery's books are the perfect antidote when I am feeling glum. This book ticked all my boxes and made me happy during Christmas time.
Wynn, a single mother, wanted to start dating. A crush on the next-door cop and he was right on her doorstep asking for her help. Sparks flew and they genuinely liked each other too.
This was a feel-good romance that gave me warm feelings making me want to cherish love. The setting of the small town and lovable characters added to the Christmassy fe

I usually enjoy Susan Mallery's books, and I love this cover. While I enjoyed this story at times, it was kind of slow for me. I had a hard time starting in the middle. The beginning was engaging and I couldn't stand Garrett's daughter Joylyn. What an attitude problem! lol But she did get better. Overall, decent characters, great Christmas cheer, but a little too slow for me. ...more
