"Project Scrooge" by A.M. Heath Blogtour and GiveAway

Can Scrooge find love from a friendship gone cold?
Sanford Stone cut ties with his best friend, Natalie, in favor of the love of his life … a woman who ended up walking out on him just before Christmas. Six years later, Sanford can’t bring himself to celebrate Christ’s birth with any joy. Little does he know, his grandmother and her companions have dubbed him the Scrooge and intend to help him overcome his bitterness and find happiness again.
The only thing that has hurt Natalie Dunivan more than Sanford cutting her out of his life has been watching his long-held grudges slowly destroy the man she has always loved. When Ms. Carol devises a plan to reach out to Sanford, Natalie eagerly agrees.
Sanford accepts his grandmother’s challenge to celebrate Christmas for 31 straight days, but he didn’t count on her plan involving Natalie. Can his family and friends help their Scrooge see the error of his ways, or will 
Natalie’s presence only make things worse?

I am going to start this review with a post that I made on Facebook about this book. "I am reading, I know, no surprise but these statements in a Christmas story just really has me thinking, wow Anita Richardson Heath has done it again.
Here are the quotes " He said I had the right to hand my anger over to the Lord.I had the right, and the ability as a Christian, to hand over my need for justice to a just and Holy God. ........" But I I learned two things" "One, I'm not capable of doling out judgement. As much as I tried to keep him in the naughty corner in my mind, .......The longer I kept him locked up and chained to his quilt, the longer I kept myself chained. "And two, I learned the meaning of the word grace. We're just as quilty. Their sins aren't any worse than ours. Our sins were still enough to see Jesus nailed to the cross. And if even our sins could require the death of a sinless God, then who are we to withhold forgiveness to a fellow sinner? It's prideful to think that her sins against you are greater than your sins against Christ." ..... The longer you put off forgiveness, the longer you pay the penalty you're forcing on others."

Some of this has been rephrased in my own words
but Anita Richardson Heath , these words are just another reason I love your books and am so glad to be on your street team."

This story has been such an inspiration to me. This book is based on "The Christmas Carol" but the author has made it her own story in a very real way that we can all relate to. Sanford has not wanted to celebrate Christmas because he is bitter, unhappy and holds a grudge. So even through this is a Christmas story I think it is a story of forgiveness and what love really is! I recommend this book and say it would be a great book to read anytime we need a reminder of what love and 
forgiveness really is! 

 The part of the story that dwells with foster care made my heart cried because this story clearly  shows that those whose experienced that  in their life all want to be accepted and part of a family and how important a strong family is and the love they share.  Grammy made me miss my own grandma more.                                                                                                                                                    
 I received a complimentary  copy of this book from the author. These opinions are my own.
