Step aside Fool's Gold - here comes Happily Inc!!
This is a brand new sweet romance series that's a bit of a Fool's Gold spin-off.
We already met Nick's family in FG and now he and his two artist brothers moved to Happily Inc to get away from their dad.
Nick is waiting for a call from Dubai - he's in the running to build a huge piece for a hotel lobby over there. That would take him away from home for two years.
But for now he's here. And he's working as an underpaid carpenter for Pallas.

Welcome to Happily Inc. where Susan Mallory will bring you into the lives and hearts of the wedding capital of the world. Nick and Pallas story was sweet, romantic, humorous and sexy. I couldn’t ask for a more complete read with You Say It First.

I adored both Nick and Pallas. Nick was kind, considerate, talented and so supportive of a woman that he just met. Pallas has her moments that she didn’t shine but that just made her more down-to-earth and endearing. You couldn’t help but feel sorry for

I know there are several bad reviews for this new series, but I enjoyed it. Was dragging threw it at the midway but then got pretty entertaining. I plan on starting to read the 2nd one as well
I had read and enjoyed some of the books from a previous series, so I required this one on a whim. It was a delightful surprise to find it featured characters from that series.

I liked Pallas and Nick well enough. They're both good, supportive people and I think that might be the best thing I can say about them. I didn't quite get their chemistry and while the conversation was decent, it lacked banter. Thankfully, there are loads and loads of other characters who provide levity and sarcasm.

I enjoyed this book for the most part. I felt bad for the MC her mother was horrible. Thankfully we find out why and they work on that. My only complaint was that this was a romance book but yet they didn't really focus on that much. It spent most of the time on her wedding business. Other than that this was a good book and I would definitely recommend it to others.

Listened to on Audio

The name of the heroine, Pallas, kept throwing me off as I listened to the audio but otherwise I really enjoyed this novel. Please note this the first book in the Happily Inc series, but is a spin-off of Fool's Gold. I find that after reading all the psychological gritty suspense and nonfiction I need a breather. I like small town romances as I need the sweet HEA to make the world right again. I am findi

Susan Mallery books are like sitting down with a good friend and hanging out. No matter the setting, or the characters, or the plot, you know you are going to enjoy the book and be glad that you read it.

So, when I got ahold of this one, I dove right in.

Nick and Pallas are wonderful together, and so perfect. A woman who is afraid she is not good enough to be worthy of love, and one who feels that love always has to be earned, that

Welcome to the town of Happily Inc and it's motley crew of residents! There is a lot of background and introductions in this first book in this series, but it is well worth it!

There are a LOT of weddings in this book, however I loved that they are not the run of the mill I Dos.

I was worried that this new series would be to much like Mallery's Fool's Gold books, especially since we revisit some characters from that series, but was pleasantly surprised. There was no cause for worry, Happily Inc. is a wedding town filled with people, animals, and a heart all its own. It was delightfully warm and amusing leaving me wanting to know more about the town and its citizens.

Finally picked up a book by Susan Mallery to satisfy my curiosity.

Formulaic, with an explicit scene, which is probably why she sells so well. The writing is okay, but nothing special.

I'm sure Susan Mallery fans will love it. It's a spinoff from her famous series.

I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for my honest review. I was so very excited to be chosen to read this first in a new series because I was a big fan of the Fools Gold series and was beyond thrilled to have some of those characters show up in this book! I loved the concept of Wedding in a Box, very fun and creative. I loved Pallas and Nick and can't wait for the next book in this series as it is destined to be a great hit! Highly recommend!

You say it first is the first book in a new series by Susan Mallery. It follows Pallas the owner of weddings in a box and Nick a famous sculptor. Besides the two of them, we also meet a horde of other characters who will hopefully get one day their own books. Like for example Drew and Silver. I want to see Drew making up for hurting Silver. Overall I liked almost all of the secondary characters we met in this book. Only Libby was a sour experience for me. The rest were at least okay for

This book was a nice start to this new series. I liked Pallas. Yet, she was more reserved in the beginning but by the end of the story, she had really opened up.

First, I do think the romance took a backseat and was just overall underwhelming.

HOWEVER, I wasn't terribly upset by this because I truly enjoyed this book. It was a quick read, it was cute, and I really found the wedding planning interesting and totally wanted to see how they pulled off the two custom weddings at the end (everything sounded pretty cool!). I'll be back for book 2, and probably for more from Mallery, when I just need something easy to escape into.

If I were being mean, I’d say this story is set in a little town that was supported by a very big lie. But I had an absolutely marvelous time in Happily Inc., so instead I’ll say that the town was boosted by an absolutely fantastic public relations ploy.

OK first and foremost - what the heck kind of name is Pallas? There's a little blurb in there explaining it, but I don't buy it. Her name was distracting for me through the entire book. Also, I think the town name is stupid and don't understand the relevance of the title. There, that's most of the bad stuff I have to say done with, now let's get to the good stuff!

I love Susan Mallory books.  I have a gazillion paperbacks with her name on it.  Most of them from her Fool's Gold series.  This new series takes place in Happily Inc and has a few characters that spin off from Fool's Gold.
