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

This is a delightfully charming tale with engaging characters. Though short, I found A WIFE BY CHRISTMAS an enchanting read from start to finish. Ellie Henderson is a willful heroine and Max Colbert a no-nonsense sort of hero. Oil and water at the start of the story, these two are destined for each other, even if they don’t realize it. I loved watching their romance bloom, and found the romantic elements wonderfully done. This is a lovely historical novella, a heart-warming Christmas tale and a ...more

A Revolter by Choice

Ellie stood up for woman's rights in everything! She only liked men of they believed in that choice also. When her new boss showed up it was clear to her that he was the enemy. This story reveals that opposites attract.
Patty McKenna Van Hulle
Ellie Henderson has been surrounded by strong women all her life & she has become independent, gutsy & feisty history teacher for the local high school. She is also a woman who will not be told want she can & can't do. Max Colbert is the principal at the local high school & demands that ALL his teachers only do his acceptable activities. So it is no wonder that Ellie & Max clash over everything, but Ellie will not let a MALE tell her what she can or not do. When Ellie zigs, s ...more

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 author ...more

What a lovely sequel to A Run For Love! Ms. Hutton offers us the story of Ellie Henderson, a child in her first novel but now a charming, spunky and independent woman in a time in history when spunk and independence in women was frowned upon. Ellie's story is heartfelt and romantic, and you'll never want to leave Guthrie, Oklahoma Territory, once you begin your journey there. Again, I anxiously await her next installment -

What a terrific story. I loved the feisty heroine with a mind and a will of her own, and the straight laced and frustrated hero trying to make her behave like a proper lady. Callie writes an awesome love story that made me smile. I wish I had read A Run For Love first, but I'm definitely going to be picking it up.

2.5 felt too forced and contrived instead of sweet or maybe because its too short for more development. a few books in with this author and one of the things I noticed is that her heroines are supposed to be strong willed independent women but cries at the drop of a hat ...

A read that was entertaining with many comical and tender moments. Ellie and Max were a perfect match in a read that is a non stop delight from start to finish.
