Told with Susan Mallery's trademark humor and charm, Happily This Christmas is the irresistible story of two neighbors in Happily Inc who become close friends, supporting one another through the ups and downs of single parenthood at Christmas...only to realize that they could be one another's second chance at love--and family.
Single mom Wynn Beauchene has a thriving business, a reputation for strength, and a mildly embarrassing crush on the swoon-worthy cop next door. When Garrick McCabe asks her to help make his home cozy for a very special young woman, Wynns romantic hopes are dasheduntil he says his daughter is coming for Christmas.
Garrick and his little girl were tight once, but they lost that when an undercover mission took him away. Now hes hoping that a small-town Happily Inc Christmas will bring her back to him. But it will take more than a few twinkle lights to thaw his daughters frosty attitude. Wynn and her son join in the festive traditions to keep the focus on fun. Then, after the kids go to bed, Wynn and Garrick succumb to the mistletoe...and to each other.
As the season works its magic, Wynn realizes its time to stop punishing herself for a shame so secret even her closest friends dont know. But Garrick is still haunted by the ghosts of past mistakes. Although smart, sexy, beautiful Wynn is a genuine temptation, he doesnt know if he can give her the only gift she truly wants: his love.
