North for Christmas by Christina Dymock Review
Have you ever known exactly what you wanted for Christmas? As a child, you may have written a letter to Santa, made a wish upon a star, or locked your dream away in your heart afraid that it might not come true if you so much as whispered it out loud. Even as adults, Christmas wishes carry a magic that can't be explained.
In North for Christmas, Ruby Jeavon certainly has her heart set on an engagement. It's the first step in creating the family she's always wanted. But things go slightly off course and instead of flying to Italy with her boyfriend, Ruby heads out of town to work as an elf in Nashville. Even though she's far away from her dream, she's about to discover the magic of a Nashville Christmas through the eyes of North Foxwell, her fellow elf and a Christmas expert. Even though North struggles with his own Christmas ghosts, Ruby manages to bring new light to his life. Can Ruby let go of her dream to find what her heart truly desires? Only time--at the North Pole--will tell. You can pick up your copy of North for Christmas at your local book store, iTunes, Barns and Noble, or from Amazon.
This is a great short read to reread every year December to get you in the holiday spirit. It is short and has everything that a great Christmas story should have. Two stubborn, yet "broken" characters, the reason of the season (giving of one's self), elves, and of course love. A lot of miracles happen around Christmas time, and sometimes people just need a little nudge to realize what they really need. I am giving this book a 5/5. I was given a copy to review, however all opinions are my own.
