His Mistletoe Family | Ruth Logan Herne

 


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 THOUGHTS:

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).

Merry Christmas!

Blessings!

Yuletide Hearts | Ruth Logan Herne

 


Today I am reviewing Yuletide Hearts, the 4th book in the Men of Allegany County series by Ruth Logan Herne.

Here is a brief synopsis:

When Matt Cavanaugh returns to his Allegany County hometown, he’s not as rough around the edges as he used to be.

The former marine is a successful contractor, a man who now believes in the Lord and old-fashioned hard work.

But when he buys a bankrupt subdivision, he discovers he’s stepped on single mother Callie Burdick’s dreams for her family.

And when Matt learns about Callie’s troubled past, he’s determined to rebuild her trust — plus an entire community — in time for Christmas.

 

 

 

MY THOUGHTS:

Wow!

In the last story, we met Matt Cavanaugh, who had just invested in a bankrupt subdivision.

This story belongs to Matt, who finds himself in a mess! After Matt discovers he has no crew to help him, does he dare ask the Marek family to help out?

Callie and Matt draw sparks pretty much from the get-go . . . and if I say much more, I might give away too much. One thing I don’t want to do is spoil this book for you. So read it — matter of fact, if you’re looking for it, just pick up the whole series. It promises to be a real winner!

Ruth Logan Herne excels at creating realistic, albeit likeable characters, who grab hold of you — and don’t let go until the end. I’m thrilled to share her books with my readers.

Merry Christmas!

A Family to Cherish | Ruth Logan Herne Marathon

 


Today I am reviewing A Family to Cherish, the 5th book in the Men of Allegany County series by Ruth Logan Herne.

Here is a brief synopsis:

Wanting to do right by his impressionable daughters, widower Cam Calhoun knows they need a woman’s touch.

But when his high school sweetheart returns to town to open a beauty spa, Cam plans to keep his distance.

Meredith Brennan left him without a word over a decade ago.

Now talk of hairstyles and nail polish have his tomboy daughters way too excited.

Yet when Meredith hires him to make her dream come true, Cam discovers he just might have what she needs most: the love of a family.

 

Are his girls tomboys . . . or are they simply in need of a woman’s loving touch? A Family to Cherish by RUTH LOGAN HERNE!Tweet this!

 

MY THOUGHTS:

This is so good — SO GOOD!

Cam Calhoun pretty much has his hands full with his two sweet, precocious daughters. So when Meredith Brennan contacts him to help restore a beautiful house she plans to turn into a beauty spa, he’s determined to stay out of her life — and her spa!

Cam and Meredith have a past. One I refuse to say anything about, mostly because you really need to read about it yourself. And you should — you really should.

But like I’ve been saying all along . . . if you haven’t read the other books in the series, you can read this one — and enjoy it — but it’s SO MUCH BETTER if you read them all (in order, please).

And because I feel it’s just that important, I’m going to list them and my reviews below:

Reunited Hearts (Monday, June 6th)
Small-Town Hearts (Wednesday, June 8th)
Mended Hearts (Friday, June 10th)
Yuletide Hearts (Monday, June 13th)
A Family to Cherish (today — Wednesday, June 15th)
His Mistletoe Family (Friday, June 17th)

 

Ruth Logan Herne is a very special friend — one I hope to meet face-to-face in August. Her books are full of inspiring, lovable characters, who grab hold of you — and don’t let go until the end (I know, I’m repeating myself here, but it’s true nonetheless). I’ve read pretty much ALL of her books and I have been impressed with each and every one. I’m honored to feature her and her wonderful books with my readers.

I’ll be back on Friday with another great book…

Mended Hearts | Ruth Logan Herne Marathon

 


Today I am reviewing Mended Hearts, the 3rd book in the Men of Allegany County series by Ruth Logan Herne.

Here is a brief synopsis:

Taking Charge…Of Her Heart

High-powered businessman Jeff Brennan can’t figure out why he’s so smitten with the town’s new librarian.

Hannah Moore is quiet, skittish — and wants nothing to do with him.

Yet as they work together on a fundraiser, Jeff resolves to discover why she came to the small New York town.

Is working two jobs and tutoring kids with special needs an escape for Hannah?

If so, Jeff is determined to show her that love can be the most powerful healing force of all.

 

Can an escape to a small town help Hannah find healing? Find out in “Mended Hearts” by Ruth Logan Herne!Tweet this!

 

MY THOUGHTS:

Hannah Moore is quiet — the perfect choice for a librarian.

Jeff Brennan can’t seem to make up his mind about her . . . why did she come back to a small town to take a part-time job in a tiny library . . . and why does she work another part-time job at a candy store . . . and what is she hiding about her past?

I know you don’t expect me to answer any of these questions! I hope you’ve already picked up copies of this series, because you won’t want to put this book down until you reach the very end.

Ruth Logan Herne continues to amaze me with her wonderful stories . . . and I feel confident you’ll feel the same way once you’ve read them. So don’t wait another minute — go get copies of this series for yourself. Even better, get all of her books, because once you begin reading books by Ruthy, you’ll want to read them all.

I’ll be back next week with another book review for this series.

Small-Town Hearts | Ruth Logan Herne Marathon

 


Today I am reviewing Small-Town Hearts, the 2nd book in the Men of Allegany County series by Ruth Logan Herne.

Here is a brief synopsis:

Securing a location for his family’s chain of sweet shops is big-city businessman Danny Graham’s secret mission.

But Grandma Mary’s Candies will mean the end of Megan Russo’s little shop—and the end of her dreams.

How can Danny put a quaint, small-town candy shop out of business?

Especially one owned by a kind young woman who’s lost too much already?

Still, here he is, trying to romance his sweet rival…, although Megan doesn’t know who he really is.

Seems like Danny needs to look into his own heart and discover what matters most.

 

Will big business spell disaster for a small-town sweetheart? SMALL-TOWN HEARTS by Ruth Logan HerneTweet this!

 

MY THOUGHTS:

When I began reading Small-Town Hearts, I was quickly pulled into the story . . .  and I found myself wishing I could smack Danny Graham! Who does he think he is, coming into town, buying up property for a new candy store, when he knows his family’s chain store will put Megan — and her sweet, quaint store — out of business!

Well, at least she plays it cool . . . a little.

I can’t say more, or I might give away too much of the story — and I don’t do spoilers!

So what you need to do now is get a copy to read — matter of fact, if I were you, I’d just get the whole series and read one right after another, until you’re done!

Ruth Logan Herne is most definitely one of my favorite authors . . . and I’m looking forward to meeting her someday. She writes books that are full of inspiring, lovable characters, who grab your interest — and don’t let go until the end.

Reunited Hearts | Ruth Logan Herne Marathon

 


Today I am reviewing Reunited Hearts, the 1st book in the Men of Allegany County series by Ruth Logan Herne.

Here is a brief synopsis:

 

The Son He Never Knew

Back in his hometown, military hero Trent Michaels comes face-to-face with a twelve-year-old boy who looks just like him.

Same dark curly hair. Same blue eyes. And the boy calls Trent’s old flame, Alyssa Langley, mom.

Trent was a foster kid from the wrong side of the tracks when he fell in love with Alyssa.

But she cast him aside because he wasn’t good enough — or so he thought.

Now Trent is determined to connect with his newfound son. And to get the truth from the woman he never stopped loving . . .

Men of Allegany County: In small-town New York, these bachelors find their soul mates.

 

The son he never knew… REUNITED HEARTS by Ruth Logan Herne!Tweet this!

MY THOUGHTS:

Wow! I’m glad I never found myself in Alyssa Langley’s shoes . . . well, I can imagine she wished the same thing, when Trent Michaels showed up. Oh, my!

Trent comes back to town in time to find out some distressing news.

. . . and if I say much more, I might give away too much. One thing I don’t want to do is spoil this book for you. So read it — matter of fact, if you’re looking for it, just pick up the whole series. It promises to be a real winner!

Ruth Logan Herne is a true-to-life hero to me . . . she’s conquered mountains I only dream of climbing. Her books are full of inspiring, likeable characters, who grab hold of you — and don’t let go until the end. I’ve read several of her books (and will be reading many more this month) and I have been impressed with each and every one. I’m honored to share her books with my readers.

 

I’ll be back soon with another great book from this series…
