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?
Don't miss The Summer Getaway by Susan Mallery where one woman discovers the beauty in chaos in a poignant and heartwarming story about the threads that hold family together.

I’ve been waiting and wondering if long-term readers of the Happily, Inc series would see Wynn’s story written. I’ve been intrigued with her since Jasper’s story, seeing as how she abruptly ended their relationship and wondered what her story was. Honestly, other than the fact that Jasper was meant for someone else’s HEA, Wynn’s reasons were anticlimactic and a real head scratcher. This was my reasoning for decreasing one star from my review. It felt flimsy and contrived.
Other than that, I liked her pairing with Garrick, although I admit to loving him much more than her. This young single dad is very easygoing, funny and super sweet. He’s not afraid to approach Wynn for help in turning his house into a home. He’s got the patience of a saint when it comes to his 21 yr old married and very pregnant daughter. I wanted to slap her more than once! I’m sure I muttered “shut up already” more than once when she was whining...again!
Wynn’s son a Hunter was great and their relationship was well written. He seemed to bond well with Joylyn once she hit town, which was nice to see. As in all Happily, Inc books, we get to see the friendships between both of only the couples in town but the male and female friend groups. It’s great to watch pairs from previous books grown and flourish.
While set during the holiday season, Happily This Christmas had just enough celebrations to let you know you’re reading a Christmas book...but the story can be read all year long. Another winner from the pen (or keyboard) of Susan Mallery
Another fun read about Happily Inc
Love this series!
Be ready to be sucked in!!!
I absolutely get sucked in to any story Susan Mallery writes. She has a way of creating these worlds that make you want to jump in the book and Wynn and Garrick book isn’t any different. The joy of family and overcoming hurdles helps this story come to life. I love revisiting Happily inc. such a great book world to be in.
