Today I am reviewing His Mistletoe Family, the 6th book in the Men of Allegany County series by Ruth Logan Herne.
Here is a brief synopsis:
When two orphaned boys and their aunt arrive for Thanksgiving supper at church, retired army colonel Brett Stanton feels his heart tugged.
Despite having her hands full, young businesswoman Haley Jennings handles her nephews with a smile.
Still, Brett can’t get too close to the needy trio. He lost his son and brother to the uniform, and isn’t about to set himself up for loss again.
Soon sweet Haley and the boys remind him of old dreams—and teach him that new dreams provide the greatest hope for a perfect family Christmas.
My heart goes out to Haley and Brett . . .
Haley unexpectedly becomes a mom to two small boys — at the worst possible time.
She’s just beginning a new business and with the holidays, she has her hands full. But when her nephews are orphaned, she drops everything to bring them back to live with her.
Brett, a retired Army Colonel, has been struggling for a long while, yet he puts himself out there and jumps in to help Haley and the boys.
This is such a sweet, heart-warming story — I know you’ll love it as much as I do. And it’s the perfect choice for a Christmas read. Honestly, I wish I could take my family to upstate New York and visit the characters in this book — or maybe drop in on Ruthy and her family (just kidding, Ruthy…don’t bar the doors yet).
