Daily Cheap Read: A Wife by Christmas by Callie Hutton -- $3.49


High School Principal Max Colbert needs to get rid of that pesky History teacher, Ellie Henderson. Getting her married off is the perfect solution, except everyone he introduces her to doesn’t seem right.

In 1906 Guthrie, Oklahoma, History teacher, Ellie Henderson, has been a thorn in High School Principal Max Colbert’s side ever since he took over three months ago. When she’s not flying by his office, late for her class, with books and papers jumbled in her arms, she’s attending Suffragettes meetings against his orders.

Because of her family connections, he can’t fire her, but he can certainly find someone to marry her, and keep her busy in the kitchen. And far away from his school. Max soon finds that what seemed like a good idea can turn into disaster when Miss Ellie Henderson is involved. The woman is a master at getting into trouble.

With the Christmas season in full swing, he has many opportunities to introduce her to prospective husbands. However, the uncomfortable feeling is growing that no one is worthy of the minx…

  3. If you decide to buy A Wife for 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.

    Great job Callie!
