About the Book

“Christmas wouldn't be Christmas without a Sheila Roberts story . . . a heartwarming confection that's as sweet as a sugarplum, and as deeply moving as snowfall.” —Susan Wiggs

The best Christmas gifts—family, friendship and second chances—are all waiting to be unwrapped in this sparkling new novel from USA TODAY bestselling author Sheila Roberts.

Single mom Lexie Bell hopes to make this first Christmas in their new home special for her six-year-old son, Brock. Festive lights and homemade fudge, check. Friendly neighbors? Uh, no. The reclusive widower next door is more grinchy than nice. But maybe he just needs a reminder of what matters most. At least sharing some holiday cheer with him will distract her from her own lack of romance…

Stanley Mann lost his Christmas spirit when he lost his wife and he sees no point in looking for it. Until she shows up in his dreams and informs him it’s time to ditch his scroogey attitude. Stanley digs in his heels, but she’s determined to haunt him until he wakes up and rediscovers the joys of the season. He can start by being a little more neighborly to the single mom next door. In spite of his protests, he’s soon making snowmen and decorating Christmas trees. How will it all end?

Merrily, of course. A certain Christmas ghost is going to make sure of that!

Critical Praise

“In this clever spin on A Christmas Carol, Roberts deftly intermingles the story of Stanley and Carol’s romance with that of his re-entry into the world while also adding another layer of twinkly holiday cheer through Lexie’s efforts to build a new life for herself and her son. With this neatly wrapped, sweetly charming treat, Roberts once again proves her mastery of uplifting, heartwarming love stories.” Booklist

“If, like me, your idea of a good time on a cold December night is to curl up with a cozy blanket, a steaming cup of hot chocolate, and a feel-good, Hallmark holiday movie, then you are going to love this book. I recommend adding it to your holiday reading list.” —Romance Dish


“A tender story guaranteed to warm your heart this holiday season. When I read anything from Sheila Roberts, I know I will laugh, cry and close the book with a happy sigh.” —RaeAnne Thayne

“Christmas wouldn't be Christmas without a Sheila Roberts story. This can't-miss author has a singular talent for touching the heart and the funnybone. She deals with the things that matter to us all—loss and love, faith and family, redemption and renewal—and ties them up with a holiday bow. Once again, Sheila Roberts gifts us with a heartwarming confection that's as sweet as a sugarplum, and as deeply moving as snowfall.” —Susan Wiggs -
