Project Scrooge

About the Book

Amazon ScroogeCan 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?

Frozen Hot Chocolate Recipes

It’s plenty hot outside but it’s just the right temperature for a tall glass of frozen hot chocolate!

Throughout Project Scrooge, Ms. Carol serves up a new cocoa recipe every day in December. So there was no better way introduce you to the cozy world of Garland, Tennessee and Ms. Carol’s cheery kitchen than by offering you two frozen hot chocolate variations. These are so easy and you likely have the ingredients already in your home.


Frozen Peanut Butter Hot Chocolate 


¾ cup of milk

3 Tb sugar

2 ½ Tb unsweetened cocoa powder

1 Tb creamy peanut butter

2 cups of ice


Frozen Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate 


¾ cup of milk

2 Tb sugar

2 ½ Tb unsweetened cocoa powder

1 Tb caramel sauce

pinch of salt

2 cups of ice


No matter which recipe you use, the directions are the same.


Blend until ice is broken down. Enjoy! Sharing is optional. 😉

This story has been such an inspiration to me. I love how the author gently reminds us about the real meaning of Christmas. You may recognize the similarities from a very well known Christmas story but the author has made it her own story in a compassionate way. I can definitely identify with Sanford in this story. He has not wanted to celebrate Christmas because he is bitter, unhappy and holds a grudge. Isn't he just such a cheerful person to be around? Many of us hold own to something that hurt us years ago and allow that to define our attitude. Sanford has let things make him someone who can't forgive and walks around with a big chip on his shoulder.

I loved Granny and wanted to be part of the family. I love cocoa and drink it every night. Oh how fun it would be to sit around drinking cocoa with her and eating her delicious food. The author touches on the subject of foster care. The characters that experienced that in their life all want to be accepted and part of a family. The story really shows how important a strong family is and the love they share. 

Sanford will get to see what it is like when he takes a journey with the help of key people in his life to past, present and future Christmas. A Christmas challenge has been given and Sanford has accepted. This begins a story that gives us a glimpse into the past where Sanford's heart was broken and I think that is the key to his bitterness. I won't tell you much more of the story so you can enjoy discovering all the surprises the author has for readers. In this beautifully written story you will find forgiveness, redemption, relationships healed and the joy of Christmas.

I received a copy of this book from Celebrate Lit. The review is my own opinion.
