RESTORING CHRISTMAS by Cynthia Ruchti, Reviewed by Rebecca Maney

"Impossible. So that meant God had an idea when Alexis didn't."

When interior designer Alexis Blake won the opportunity to enter an eight week long "Restoring Christmas" home redesign contest, she was full of possibilities. . . . until, she met her stand-in videographer and the stubborn, prickly homeowner. Elsie wanted change without changing, while Gabe Langley's effervescent optimism was mildly annoying and surprisingly adorable.

After a series of unfortunate events, Gabe asks Alexis the million dollar question, " Ask yourself if your assignment is to 'reinvent' Christmas or to 'restore' it." After all, the baby in the manger was "mercy's abundance made visible to us."

An absolutely mesmerizing little story abounding in grace and overflowing with smiles! Just think "cat-astrophic"! 
*I purchased this story and was under no obligation to review it. 

BackCover Blurb:
Alexis Blake has one chance to land her own show on the Home Project Network and nothing-not an uncooperative client, a job site without indoor plumbing, or a challenging videographer-is going to stand in her way. Elsie, at seventy-plus, is far from the ideal client, but she knows exactly what she wants her fieldstone house to look like, and no designer can tell her otherwise. Gabe Langley, the man with the camera, is caught in the middle and it is his wisdom and warmth that just may be the bridge that will bring these two women together. Can they restore more than just a house and bring about special, almost lost forever Christmas memories?
