I really enjoyed this sweet story about a retired Army Colonel and a young entrepreneur in Upstate NY who find romance and comfort in one another's arms. Haley Jennings loves a challenge in business--she has started a co-op in her grandfather's old factory right during the Christmas rush, which would be a daunting task for the most focused among us. But then, a monkey wrench is thrown into her life--her brother has left his two young sons into her care.

With a five and a three year old in the ba

Another good one!

This book could not be put down, it was so heartwarming. Past wrongs can be overcome, the way you were treated as a child doesn't have to be the way you treat your loved ones. You can break the cycle. Ruth, you have a wonderful gift of empathy and telling a story that both touches the heart and teaches a lesson. I highly recommend this book.

Ruth Logan Herne has the amazing ability to write a story that just sucks you into the character's lives. I love how she writes a story that has realistic conflicts and true to life characters. In His Mistletoe Family, Brett and Haley are brought together through circumstances that just melt your heart. So many times through this book I felt as if Brett was just the best type of man for Haley. Bring in two adorable little boys and you are set for a ready made family. I also like how each charact ...more

Adorable characters and intriguing premise. I especially enjoyed the scene where Brett takes the boys, ages 5 and 3, shopping for the first time. He wonders why a man, who commanded combat troops, is at a lost keeping up with two little boys. Brett, and the boys, brought a smile to my face.

This was a cute story and perfect to read during the Christmas season. Ruth Logan Herne really knows how to humanize her characters. Her stories are realistic and very relatable to every day life. I look forward to reading any future books by this author.
