What a charming, humorous, engaging story. It deserves every bit of five stars. While the story is a follow-up to Miss Hutton's, A Run For Love, this Christmas tale works just as well as a stand-alone. She has managed to give us the fully developed characters and believable plot so often missing in short stories. Check this one out, you won't be disappointed.

If you decide to buy 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 authority and challenges him on all levels. But things do not always turn out as anticipated. Especially when you combine undeniable attraction, an array of comical mishaps, endearing moments and the magic of Christmas.

Ellie Henderson and I would be great friends! It was like following my alter ego had I been born into her world. This beautiful young schoolteacher desired a self-directed, independent life and pushed through the restrictive protocols of her time to grab it with humor, savvy, and finding the romance of her life along the way. Such an endearing and delightful story, perfect at any time but especially engaging at Christmas!

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, she is always found out while Max zags & they always seem to be in one another personal space. Pantie dropping kisses are aplenty, shopping ending in a water trough, women's voting meetings, tempting caresses & a gross salted to death casserole make their hearts open & soak up that troublesome emotion called LOVE!

Ms. Hutton writes such great characters that are strong, but so flawed! Ellie was raised as a strong woman with nothing stopping her from her goals, but she truly craves her own special love! Max is a hero with control as his BFF, but Ellie knocks & kicks in every door of his control. They are as different as oil & water & just as explosive as TNT, but they are the perfect match set because they complete one another. Ms. Hutton used her laugh a minute writing style & put her h/h into such ROFL circumstances & had me getting the evil eye & the bloody claw from my furry reading buddy, Simba! Ms. Hutton ever brought back some of her other cast of characters from her Oklahoma Lovers series into the mix! So for this hilarious galore romance with opposites attract, I give Ms. Hutton my top score of 5 fingers up & 10 toes for this tale!

ARC given for my honest review.

Ellie is such a wonderful character. My only fault with this book is that it wasn't longer. But, considering it was so short it was amazing how involved you could get with the characters in such a short time.
Ellie is so funny you will laugh at her as she leads Max on a merry chase through out the book. It would be interesting to have another book on their lives after marriage. I'll bet living with Ellie would never be boring.
Such a fun book that's impossible to put down.
Anxiously awaiting the story of Rachel and Hunter.

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 romance with passion.

Callie Hutton did an amazing job with yet another book. Ellis cracks me up. It was so sweet how Max realized he loved her.

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 meaning ways are just what Max needs to loosen up.

When he comes up with a plan to marry Ellie off to anyone he can think of...all in an effort to get her out of his mind and life...it totally backfires. He realizes his own feelings for her in the process and in between many fun and funny scenes.

You just can't help but fall in love with both Max and Ellie and root for them on their journey.

I will definitely be looking for more books written by Ms. Hutton :)
