Boo Humbug

Rene Gutteridge is the author of Boo Humbug. What do you think the book is about? To me, it sounds like a mixture of holidays...Halloween and Christmas (the Grinch). This book is not about that, though. This book is #4 out of the series.
The setting is Skary, Indiana, and it is Christmastime. One of the main characters, Lois Stepaphanopolis attempts to bring her demented and horrifying vision of A Christmas Carol to life. Lois tries to rally her cast, but they aren't too sure of her. She finds out that her marketing director, Alfred Tennison, is an old Scrooge himself!
The storyline has many interesting turns as it unfolds. The cast goes through a major disaster...which makes any reader laugh out loud! Lois panics when she discovers that her marketing director is a huge Christmas Scrooge and that the audience has been promised the real Christmas story and not Dickens’ A Christmas Carol! Can the actors pull off making things work and convince their community to embrace the true meaning of Christmas? The pages turn quickly with this read, because Renee keeps your interest. It will baffle you, and give you humor. She will surprise you with her ending, will be blessed with the message of Christmas.
Be sure to check out Boo Humbug for this Christmas time read!
