Boo Humbug is such a cute, funny story! It is the fourth book in the "Boo Series" by Rene Gutteridge. I have not read the other books, but I was still able to follow along easily. The title might turn off some people (Boo), but the book is not what you would expect. The story is about a crazy old lady who decides to put on a Christmas Carol Play as a horror story. Everybody tries to tell her how crazy that is, but she won't listen. The story is about a man who can't figure out why he is so unhappy and what he needs to do to be happy. We all know the only way to find true happiness is through our Lord, Jesus Christ. The ending is totally unexpected and will make you smile. I would definitely recommend reading this book.
Happy Reading and Merry Christmas!

Sarah is Mickie's aunt and wants to heal past wounds and needs to learn how to forgive herself and not to feel guilty about stuff that is not her fault. She believes the housekeeper/nanny job working for Justin, her deceased sister's husband, is the way to do that.
Justin is happy with the way his family is. He wants to show Sarah forgiveness, will he learn how to not only forgive her, but treat her as part of the family?
I don't want to give anything away, so I won't give anymore details about the book. It is a short, quick read. Cheryl does a good job teaching what the Bible says and keeping on track with it. She is very biblical with the way her characters conduct themselves and explaining what God would expect also.
I would definitely recommend reading this book. You will have to get it from either your library, a used book store or from one of the used bookstores online. Here is a link to one of them:
P.S. Yes you will be seeing a Christmas theme in the books I am reading this month. Don't you just love Christmas and what it stands for?

"Of course I'm not in favor of witches and goblins and dealing with the dead. Actually, the Anglo-Saxon term 'wizard' simply refers to older, wise people, as in 'wizened.'"
Donita is obviously trying to justify having wizards in a Christian book. The story line is about a Wizard's Christmas Ball held every year. There is a street that does not exist with a lot of fanciful shops lining the street and the wizards who run the shops match up people they think should get married and give them tickets to the ball so they will fall in love at the ball. The dresses are "magical" and only the intended person can wear it or it will turn to rags. Only the "right" people can see the street and shop there. The buildings are sometimes there, and sometimes not. The Bible says:
Leviticus 20:27 "A man also or woman that hath a familiar spirit, or that is a wizard, shall surely be put to death: they shall stone them with stones: their blood shall be upon them."
Deuteronomy 18:10-12"There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch, Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. For all that do these things are an abomination unto the Lord: and because of these abominations the Lord thy God doth drive them out from before thee."
The Bible is very clear not to have any thing to do with wizards and using a different version of the Bible to make it agree with what you want is wrong!
I would not recommend reading this book even though it has a cute story.
