This is an inspirational, gender bended version of A Christmas Carol set in contemporary times. I thought it was a good twist, as well as some of the twists concerning the Rachette children. The characters were pretty true to the original, for the most part, when it came to mannerisms. The book was also very engaging and uplifting, especially for the holiday season. All in all, I'm glad I picked it up and read it this Christmas!

Liked the way the book led you about Mrs Scrooge.
She wanted to make money by selling more in her department store.
Glad she and Bob were friends since Childhood. Her knew her well.
Good twist from The Christmas Carol.

This is another take on the famous Christmas story of a person being visited by three ghosts. That may turn some people off, but I found this version very delightful. The basic idea is the same, but the twists that the author provided were very thought provoking. The only drawback I found was the author's choice of names for the main characters~~Mrs. Scrooge and Bob Rachette. I found this to be an attempt by the author to tie her story into the original. I think the reader can draw the correlati ...more

It was just a nice story showing the reader that material possesions are not what makes a person happy. Romantic love and family love is much more important as Eleonor showed after she realized what she had given up for fame and fortune.

So-so take on A Christmas Carol. I thought some of the parallels drawn were silly. And given "Mrs. Scrooge"'s personality and her treatment of him, I thought it impossible that Bob would have still carried a torch for her.

It was OK. And I am being nice about it because it is Christmas Day.

A christian based love story with all the characteristics of A Christmas Carol. Very cliche and predictable. It was a quick easy read.

A modern take

Joyce Livingston did a great job in her upbeat story. Definitely time well spent as we see a modern take on A Christmas Carol.

God's love shines through.

An excellent example of prayers and patience. Love is given when pride has fallen. Praise to the writer for sharing this story with us.
