Summary, etc.:
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!

    Stanley Mann loved his late wife Carol, but he could really do without her ghostly interfering. Concerned that he is turning into a curmudgeonly hermit, Carol's spirit has been appearing to Stanley to urge him to reconnect with the world, beginning with his new neighbors, single mom Lexie Bell and her young son, Brock. As the holiday season rapidly approaches, Stanley begrudgingly starts getting to know Lexie and Brock, but will Carol be successful in transforming him from the neighborhood grinch into Santa's new holiday helper? In this clever spin on A Christmas Carol, Roberts (Sunset on Moonlight Beach, 2021) 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. Copyright 2021 Booklist Reviews.
