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?

🎧︎Resting Scrooge Face tells the story of Nola and Caleb. Nola left Bright Harbor, Maine for New York. However, a breakup and the feeling of wanting to be near family she returned home. Now although she’s happy to be home, she dreads running into the guy who broke her heart years ago. Added to that she’s not to keen on Christmas. After all what’s cheery about having your broken twice.
Caleb, the guy who broke Nora’s heart before she left for New York, owns and operated the local hardware store. He harbors regrets regarding his breakup with Nora and he clearly still has feelings for her. Now that Nola is back in town, the regrets have intensified leading to him acting like a grumpy Scrooge. On one of his not so good days Caleb took pen to paper and listed all the things he despised about Christmas. A list which was written out in the form of a letter. He threw it in the trash, however his elderly friend who so happened to be the mailman, took it out the trash and delivered it to no other than Nora. Soon the two began exchanging letters not knowing to whom they were expressing their shared hate of Christmas.
Despite the brevity of the story, 🎧︎Resting Scrooge Face was heartwarming, charming and delightfully hilarious. I loved the concept behind the exchange of letters. My only wish is that the story was longer. The narrators did a great job in bringing the story to life. If you are looking for a short and sweet Christmas read with Hallmark vibes I recommend this latest offering from Meghan Quinn.

Reading this book contributed to these challenges:
I had a blast with this, it had such a cozy Hallmark feel to it which I really liked. But yes it definitely could have used a bigger length to it.
I listened to this as well, and agree, it would have been better if a bit longer! I’m glad you enjoyed it.
This sounds cute. Sometimes a quick read like this is a pleasant escape.
I thought this was short, sweet and fun, too. It helped meet my audiobook challenge before the end of the year.
