OVERVIEW

Alexis Blake dreams of having her own reality and remodeling television show. Gabe Langley wants to prove himself. Elise Raymond needs to make things right from her past. As Alexis remodels her home with Gabe behind the camera, their lives become intertwined. Egos are deflated, secrets are revealed, and a heartwarming ending makes the latest of Cynthia Ruchti’s novels the perfect story for the holiday season or anytime during the cold winter months.  Ruchti tells her story with a trademark “hemming of hope,” bringing her characters to life without overdoing it. The story is set in temporary times and focuses on bringing the commercial aspects of Christmas into proper perspective while rediscovering the Christ-centered true meaning of the holiday.  This is relaxing reading that is entertainment with a message.
