Publisher's Summary

The New York Times best-selling author of the Fool's Gold romances invites you to visit Happily Inc., a wedding destination founded on a fairy tale.

Sculptor Nick Mitchell grew up in a family of artists and learned from his volatile father that passion leads only to pain. As he waits on a new commission, he takes a day job as a humble carpenter at a theme wedding venue. The job has its perks - mainly the venue's captivating owner, Pallas Saunders. Although he won't let love consume him, for ecstasy with an expiration date, he's all in.

Pallas adores Weddings in a Box. But if she can't turn the floundering business around, she'll have no choice but to cave to her domineering mother and trade taffeta for trust funds, working at the family's bank. Then when a desperate bride begs Pallas for something completely out of the box, her irresistible new hire inspires her. Nick knows she doesn't belong behind a desk, and she knows in her heart that he's right - where she really belongs is in his arms.

well.

at times the narrator sounded like a robot. the pausing, the lack of punctuation at other times.. frustrating. I gave up.
I'll try the print version of this title.

Amazing!

I absolutely loved this story. It's my first Susan Mallery book but it certainly won't be my last. I loved the variety of characters introduced and the hints of a backstory you got from each one. I found myself disappointed when the characters were disappointed and excited when the characters were excited. This story completely sucked me in. It took me less than 4 days to finish this book and I'll be moving on to the second one tonight. Definitely worth the read/listen.

Boring!

I like Susan Mallery’s books but I kept waiting for this one to start. She seemed to throw a lot of characters in to make you think there was a good story going on, but it fell totally flat for me. No strong female or male lead and no one to really like, set in a town that had..nothing to make me want to go there. Sorry, skip this one and you won’t be missing a thing. .

Not one of Susan Mallery's best

Definitely now my favorite Susan Mallery book. I have read a lot of her books but this one just seemed very rushed.

Hard to follow

There are too many references to past storylines, making it difficult to follow the current storyline.

Love New Locale

Love Pallas and her group of loyal friends - great storyline and characters. Can't wait for next release. Make me want to revisit the Fools Gold books while I await Second Chance Girl.
