Project Scrooge – A Review and Giveaway

Project Scrooge

About the Book

Amazon Scrooge

Can Scrooge find love from a friendship gone cold?

Sanford Stone cut ties with his best friend, Natalie, in favor of the love of his life … a woman who ended up walking out on him just before Christmas. Six years later, Sanford can’t bring himself to celebrate Christ’s birth with any joy. Little does he know, his grandmother and her companions have dubbed him the Scrooge and intend to help him overcome his bitterness and find happiness again.

The only thing that has hurt Natalie Dunivan more than Sanford cutting her out of his life has been watching his long-held grudges slowly destroy the man she has always loved. Together with Ms. Carol, Natalie devises a plan to reach out to Sanford.

Sanford accepts his grandmother’s challenge to celebrate Christmas for 31 straight days, but he didn’t count on her plan involving Natalie. Can his family and friends help their Scrooge see the error of his ways, or will Natalie’s presence only make things worse?

I wish I could say from the moment I began reading this book that it drew me into the story. I loved the idea of a modern day Scrooge combined with a story of forgiving those who trespass against us as God commands us to do. However, it took me a bit to get into this story.

Switching back and forth between Sanford and Natalie’s perspectives initially caused me to lose focus on the plot. However, I eventually found myself caught up in the story and wanted to see how things would turn out between Natalie and Sanford.

The supporting characters in this book, including Sanford’s grandmother, Sanford’s ex-fiance, some co-workers for both Sanford and Natalie, help bring this book to life. I enjoyed how it combined the ideas of forgiveness like God calls on us to do and the story of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol eventually brought this book to life to me. I have to say the ending provided the icing for the cake. So check out this book for yourself.

I received a complimentary copy of this book, but it in no way influenced my review. All opinions are my own.
