About the book

The #1 New York Times bestselling 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 only leads 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 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.

My Thoughts

I love Susan Mallery’s Fool’s Gold series and since we met the Mitchell brothers in that series I was excited to start this offshoot series. The first time I tried reading this I surprisingly ended up setting it aside as I just couldn’t get into it. However, after reading the third book in the series, Why Not Tonight, I fell in love with the series and immediately went back to give this one another try. I definitely enjoyed it more so this time around and finished it quickly.

While I didn’t love it as much as Ronan’s story it was still enjoyable and I am glad I went back. Seeing how great Pallas was with her wedding business in book 3, it was surprising to see how she struggled in this book with her choice as to continue the business or not. I’m definitely going to have to go pick up book 2 now. Glad to see this series is picking up steam and will hopefully rank up there for me along with Fool’s Gold.
