A Wife by Christmas by Callie Hutton

Guthrie, Oklahoma, 1906 ~ History teacher Ellie Henderson, has been a thorn in High School Principal Max Colbert's side ever since he took over three months ago. When she's not flying by his office, late for her class, with books and papers jumbled in her arms, she's attending Suffragettes meetings against his orders.

Because of her family connections, Max can't fire her, but he can certainly find someone to marry her, and keep her busy in the kitchen-and far away from his school. Max soon finds that what seemed like a good idea can turn into disaster when Miss Ellie Henderson is involved. The woman is a master at getting into trouble.

With the Christmas season in full swing, he has many opportunities to introduce her to prospective husbands. However, he gets the uncomfortable feeling that no one is worthy of the minx...

A Wife By Christmas is truly a wonderful read...and don't let the title fool you...this is way more than a Christmas story...this is a fun LOVE STORY complete with humor and tight family bonds! I enjoyed touching base again with many favorite characters from A Run For Love...like Tori & Jesse and Michael and many more. Max Colbert starts off as a stodgy, disciplined man who doesn't want any type of upheavel in his life. Ellie Henderson is upheavel times ten! Her spirited determination and well meaning ways are just what Max needs to loosen up. When he comes up with a plan to marry Ellie off to anyone he can think of...all in an effort to get her out of his mind and life...it totally backfires. He realizes his own feelings for her in the process and in between many fun and funny scenes. You just can't help but fall in love with both Max and Ellie and root for them on their journey. I will definitely be looking for more books written by Ms. Hutton :)

What a charming, humorous, engaging story. It deserves every bit of five stars. While the story is a follow-up to Miss Hutton's A Run For Love, this Christmas tale works just as well as a stand-alone. She has managed to give us the fully developed characters and believable plot so often missing in short stories. Check this one out, you won¿t be disappointed.

If you decide to purchase A Wife by Christmas, you will not be disappointed in this delightful step back in time. A well written, romantic sequel to Ms. Hutton's first novel, A Run for Love, features Ellie Henderson, a turn of the century school teacher, who following in her Aunt Tori's footsteps, is every bit as tenacious, independent and feisty. Handsome principal, Max Colbert has his life, career and future planned. It does not include a headstrong Suffragette who constantly defies his authority and challenges him on all levels. But things do not always turn out as anticipated. Especially when you combine undeniable attraction, an array of comical mishaps, endearing moments and the magic of Christmas.
