“I had Sheri gather the information on a flight to Italy, the hotel, and ski passes. I’m sorry, dear. It costs too much. I have other obligations this time of year.”
Ruby’s heart sank.
So much for getting engaged at the bottom of the Alps.
Ruby knows her CEO mother really could afford to send her to Europe for Christmas. But instead Ruby’s stuck in Tennessee working as a Christmas elf so she can pay for the trip herself. Wrangling whiny kids at the mall certainly isn’t the holiday she had in mind. But things start to get interesting when Ruby meets North—a lawyer-turned-elf, who might be able to grant Ruby’s real Christmas wish.Ruby's Christmas wish may get in the way of what she truly needs. NORTH FOR CHRISTMAS by Christina Dymock Click To Tweet
This is the perfect book to get you in the Christmas spirit! Ruby and North both approach the work of bringing holiday cheer from different backgrounds, but both have a great character arc as they come to realizations about their current lives and make changes that show that compassion and forgiveness are more important than what they were holding on to. They have great chemistry and even though their friendship has some rocky moments, they are a pleasure to read. North is so charismatic and I loved all his mannerisms that made him stand out. His dark struggle of letting go of past hurts contrasts with his love for Christmas and serving others. Ruby is a bit lost and lonely but trying her best in a high maintenance relationship with her boyfriend and feeling emotionally estranged from her mother. The time away from her busy life gives her perspective and I loved seeing her humble awakening to the true joy of connecting with those around her as they serve the children and needy.
