Happily This Christmas by Susan Mallery

About The Book

It’s the season of love, forgiveness… and tidings of trouble!
Wynn Beauchene is exactly where she wants to be: a successful business owner and single mum. Lately, however, something feels like it’s missing. Even worse is Wynn’s attraction to the gorgeous policeman next door.
With his pregnant daughter coming to stay, Garrick McCabe has one last chance to repair their strained relationship. Except his daughter seems to have turned into the Grinch, and now Garrick needs Wynn’s help to turn this festive fiasco around… before it’s too late.
For Garrick and Wynn, a little chaos is the perfect gift for revealing what—and who—matters most…


My Thoughts

Christmas is a season to heal and be loved, to be with the people you love and let them help you. For me, Christmas has always had a special meaning with sweet memories and love. Possibly this is why I loved so much this story, it shows the reader the importance of family and love in a lovely story.
This book is based on Wynn and Garrick, they are neighbours and as good neighbours they try to help each other with their problems, but when feelings start to be involved in their friendship they know that this could be more than a flirt. Are they ready for it?
We will not only read about Wynn and Garrick’s love story but also about their families problems in a very interesting and addictive way, because any reader will feel reflected on their situations; the need to be there when your children are hurting, trying to keep them happy and helping everyone around them. A single mother with a teenager or a father with an estranged daughter are never easy; but both families will use this Christmas to heal their wounds and discover the “power” of the family. Because, no matter how hurt or disappointed you can be, sometimes feeling loved and cared is the only think we need.
I really enjoyed this book, it is slow paced and full of emotions, it was easy to feel part of the story and want to know more about the characters and the neighbours that surround them. I really can’t wait to arrive at Christmas and read the story again with all the Christmas lights on! ?
