Restoring Christmas by:Cynthia Ruchti


Description from the Author’s Website:

Alexis Blake set out to restore a neglected building.

What she didn’t expect was to restore a life…

Alexis has one chance to land her own show on the Heart-and-Home 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 Raymond, 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 save Christmas memories from being lost forever?

My Review:

This was the perfect start to the Holiday season for me.  I picked this up on the first of December to get into the holiday spirit and this did the trick.  I was quickly absorbed into Alexis’ word and found myself wanting to find out what was happening when I wasn’t reading it.

My mom and I like to watch the home renovation shows on out local cable channels and one of our favorite couples is Chip and Joanna Gaines.  They are so loveable and humorous and the main characters of Restoring Christmas had that same appeal.

This is a Christian book and the message of hope and faith are beautifully woven into this story.  Alexis, Gabe and Elsie all experience the ups and downs of life but through it all, they are able to come through with a little bit of faith and some friends.

I received this book from Worthy Publishing in exchange for an honest review.

I gave this book 5 crowns.
