About the Book: Resting Scrooge Face by Meghan Quinn
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?

The book is about Nola, who moves back to her hometown following a bad breakup. What doesn’t help is that it’s almost Christmas, so the entire town is in full swing – with cheer, happiness, holiday spirit, and love. Even worse than that, the boy who once broke her heart, is still there and has aged like a fine wine (her words).
The story takes a turn when the local postman delivers her a letter from someone grumbling about Christmas too and it only signs as Resting Scrooge Face. What follows next is that she feels compelled to reply and their chain of mutual letters begins, a beautiful pen-pal relationship that grows from hating everything about Christmas to loving the festival cheer again.
A quick short romance novella, with a small-town feel that keeps you smiling with each page passing by. A perfect read for a cozy Christmasy winter afternoon with a cup of coffee. It’s just 80 pages, so before you could finish your coffee, the book is over. Beautiful work of fiction by Meghan Quinn, loved it.
