Dear Ruth,

I’m not in the mood for Christmas. After a romantic relationship went up in flames, I returned to my hometown in rural Kansas. Then my mother passed away. I’m really busy with my job as fire marshal—and now with my mother’s advice column, which I reluctantly took over. There’s a sexy newcomer down the street, a guy with a young daughter and an unfortunate disregard for fire safety. He seems to want to be friends, but that creates problems that may be too hot for me to handle. The last things I need right now are flammable holiday decorations and too much holiday food. How am I supposed to give good advice to others when I can’t seem to get my own life straight?

5 Stars!

What a cute story this was. I hate giving away too much since it’s short so basically, I’ll say this:

I definitely recommend Dear Ruth. It’s a great combination of sweet and funny. The characters are all lovable and easy to connect with. Bryce and Noah had such little time together on page but their connection and attraction were believable.

I liked that this was a drama free read and left me feeling lighthearted. The writing was well done and I liked the author's style. This is my first holiday story of the season but it’s put me in the mood for more.
