Mills & Boon have kindly asked me to provide my honest review of You Say It First by Susan Mallery. So here it is:
You Say It First by is a gently simmering romance set in a wedding town.
Pallas Saunders adores running her quirky wedding venue, Weddings in a Box. But if she can’t turn the floundering business around, she’ll have no choice but to trade taffeta for a stable career.
Sculptor Nick Mitchell is struggling to fill his time between commissions, so takes a day job as carpenter at Weddings in a Box… The job has its perks—mainly the captivating owner, Pallas.
Then when a desperate bride wants something completely new, Nick inspires Pallas to think outside the box. Could building a dream wedding be the start of their fairytale?
Though I usually prefer love stories with a tad more tension and conflict, I did like this book mainly because of the sweet lead characters and their colourful friends and family. The novel paints an interesting image of life in a small town, where views are entrenched in legacy and history.
For those who enjoy a cosy, slow-burner to while away the winter blues, #YouSayItFirst would be a good choice.
My gratitude to Mills & Boon and NetGalley for the opportunity to review this book.
