In this Christmas story, there is no happy ending for Scrooge.
Louisa Henry has read the Dickens classic enough times to spot a Scrooge when she sees one. Arthur Crawford is as sour as they come. Even worse? There’s no chance for his redemption because during the town’s Christmas tree lighting, his body is found suspended in the lights of the largest pine.
No one is surprised that Arthur’s selfish ways finally caught up to him. But when it becomes apparent that the killer won’t stop, Lou must delve deep into Arthur’s Christmases past to find out who took away his Christmas future.
