Book review: Restoring Christmas by Cynthia Ruchti

About the book

Alexis Blake has one chance to land her own show on the Home Project Network and nothing, not an uncooperative client, a job site without indoor plumbing, or a challenging videographer, is going to stand in her way. Elsie, at seventy-plus, is far from the ideal client, but she knows exactly what she wants her fieldstone house to look like, and no designer can tell her otherwise. Gabe Langley, the man with the camera, is caught in the middle and it is his wisdom and warmth that just may be the bridge that will bring these two women together. Can they restore more than just a house and bring about special, almost lost forever Christmas memories?

My review

Author Cynthia Ruchti awakens all the coziness, warmth, and good feelings about Christmas, then amidst that backdrop tells a story that hits home with its truth:  Christmas is about restoration.  

This book is not long, but the characters become likable and are well-developed.  There is such a fun relationship that develops between Alexis and Gabe, but what I liked most was the transformation that took place in each one as they allowed God to restore them from past hurts and problems.

Grab your hot cider, tea, coffee, or hot chocolate, and curl up in a blanket near the fire, and enjoy all the warmth and coziness of Christmas as you read this book.  I highly recommend it for your holiday reading!

I received a copy of this book from the author for review purposes.  The thoughts expressed here are my own.
