New Release Review: Resting Scrooge Face by Meghan Quinn

Resting Scrooge Face

by Meghan Quinn

Release Date: November 29, 2022


From USA Today and Amazon Charts bestselling author Meghan Quinn comes a festive short romance about old flames and mistaken identities.

After a bad breakup, Nola wants nothing to do with Christmas, especially in her quaint hometown of Bright Harbor, Maine. Infuriatingly charming and cheery, Nola’s surroundings only worsen her sour mood.

To make matters worse, Caleb, the boy who broke her heart years ago, is all grown up and still living in town. While doing her best to avoid him, Nola bumps into the local mailman, who gives her a mysterious letter. And when she finds that the writer is a fellow Scrooge, she can’t help but feel her spirit lifting.

Nola writes back to her new pen pal—who, unbeknownst to Nola, is none other than Caleb. When Caleb gets a response hand delivered by the mailman, he’s intrigued by the mystery sender. A friendly correspondence develops—and quickly turns flirtatious.

Although Nola and Caleb claim they can’t stand each other, they can’t deny the simmering attraction that brought them together in the first place.

Can these nameless pen pals write their own love story—or will they be too caught up with the ghosts of their Christmases past to find a future together?

My review: 4 stars

Oh I wish this was longer! Caleb and Nola's second chance holiday romance was delightful, and I adored Grandma Louise and postman Arden too. It was a neat surprise to get to visit author Quinn's Port Snow again (hello Lobster Landing!). Resting Scrooge Face and Ho Ho No have me ready to celebrate the holidays with a smile.
