Publisher's Description

It’s Christmastime in Skary, Indiana, but the holiday season has been hijacked by maverick director Lois Stepaphanopolis as she attempts to bring her horror-ific vision of A Christmas Carol to life. But the holly-decked path from page to stage is a thorny one, as Lois attempts to rally her skeptical cast, including new father Wolfe Boone, and then she learns that her reluctant marketing director, Alfred Tennison, is truly a Christmas Scrooge.

Alfred’s grassroots marketing plan proves more than successful as the buzz builds that Skary should anticipate an overflowing audience for their opening night– but a crucial miscommunication leaves the visiting theatergoers expecting of a very different Christmas production. As chaos ensues, can the actors pull off an improv miracle — and can the Skary community convince their own Scrooge to embrace the true meaning of Christmas?

Editorial Reviews

“Move over Dickens, there’s a new Scrooge in town. Of course, this one may be heading for a straitjacket. With Boo Humbug, Rene Gutteridge serves up a romping good read that alternately had me scratching my head and chuckling. And just when I thought the tale had reached its peak--a surprise ending that delivers the Christmas message with feeling.”
Tamara Leigh, author of Splitting Harriet


“A touch of eccentric, a measure of Dickens, and a generous dollop of love, and you have the perfect recipe for Christmas. Boo Humbug!
DiAnn Mills, When the Nile Runs Red


“What fun!  I enjoyed Boo Humbug from the first page to the last.  With characters that come alive and a storyline full of clever turns, it had me chuckling, cheering, and even reaching for a tissue at the end.  I think I’ll have to start a new Christmas tradition — reading Rene Gutteridge’s Boo Humbug.  I loved it!” 
Marlo Schalesky, author of 5 books, including Veil of Fire


“Only in Skary, Indiana, would a simple production of The Christmas Carol devolve into a hilarious disaster. With her trademark blend of insight and wit, Rene Gutteridge’s return to Skary is funny, heartwarming, and an absolute delight to read.”
Melanie Dobson, author of Together for Good and Going for Broke


“In Boo Humbug, Rene Gutteridge and her loveable cast of characters present a story of Christmas unlike any other. Charming, witty, and fun, this tale promises to delight readers for years to come.”
Diann Hunt, author of fourteen novels, including Be Sweet

    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.

    This short little book has all the fun of the longer books with the real message of Christmas coming through by the end of the story. By now I wanted to live in Skary and visit with all the people who make up this fun and caring town.

    "A Christmas Carol" comes to Skary, Indiana. This fourth charming and quirky novel in Gutteridge's "Boo" series finds the residents of Skary at Lois' mercy as she attempts an adaptation of the Dickens classic for the community theater. Misunderstandings abound, as usual, in the midst of Skary's citizens in this Christmas Tale - Skary style. Filled with witty scenarios and some laugh out loud moments, this book, like the other "Boo" novels, is a surprising and welcome addition to my Christmas reading.

    I've read every book in the series. Although it's after the season, I still enjoyed the Christmas tale. Boo is still may favorite of the series, but I will encourage my reading buddies to read this right after Thanksgiving next year.
