Saving Mr Scrooge
Moorland Heroes Series
Twists on old favourites. Classic tales, Jane Eyre and A Christmas Carol, inspired these contemporary stories. Meet Cara Truelove, a downtrodden young woman who is seriously lacking in self-confidence. Cara’s given up on romance, but when she starts working for brooding Ethan, she’s in danger of falling in love all over again. Can Cara resist Mr Rochester? Kit Carroll’s been away a long time, but now he’s back and in charge at Carroll’s Confectionery Factory. Self-styled PA Marley Jacobs isn’t impressed – particularly since the two were once engaged and Kit abandoned her. As Christmas approaches, Marley realises Kit may need her help in the most unexpected ways. Can she save this modern-day Mr Scrooge?
Saving Mr Scrooge
Love, forgiveness, and the magic of Christmas…
It’s the time of peace on earth and goodwill to all men, but at Carroll’s Confectionery Factory on the North York Moors, the meaning of Christmas seems to have been forgotten. New boss, Kit Carroll, is hardly winning friends with his high-handed attitude, his foolhardy approach to production, and his tight-fisted treatment of the factory’s employees.
Marley Jacobs, his self-styled PA, is determined to make him see the error of his ways, and return the festive spirit to Carroll’s. Unfortunately, the little matter of their previous relationship and Kit’s callous treatment of her when they were teenage sweethearts keeps getting in the way of her good intentions.
With encouragement from co-worker Don, romantic sister Olivia, and — astonishingly — the usually sceptical Great Uncle Charles, Marley decides to save this modern-day Mr Scrooge from himself, despite having no well-meaning ghosts to help her.
But revisiting the past doesn’t just stir things up for Kit. As Marley struggles to deal with bittersweet memories, present-day events take a surprising turn. Can the future be changed, after all?
And is it only Kit who needs saving?
