Scrooged Over is a novella in the Dreamspinner Press 2016 Advent Calendar - Bah Humbug. Radio Hosts Deke and Dudley appear to be opposites on the radio. Deke hates everything about Christmas. Dudley loves everything about Christmas. He plans every day of the holiday season out to make sure he completes everything on his Christmas list. Deke decides to make a bet with Dudley that there are more listeners who hate Christmas than love it. Loser of the bet will have to go on a date of the winner's choice. Dudley is sure he's going to lose the bet, but he still takes it. This year, though, Dudley's love for the holidays is challenged. Everything that could go wrong seems to go wrong. But, are there real issues with his holiday preparations, or is something else going on?
I enjoyed Dudley's character. He was a good guy, spreading cheer around and doing everything he could to make the season special for his grandfather. I loved his grandfather and thought every interaction with him was hilarious! I wasn't a fan of Deke, who really was just a mean-spirited jerk. His "pranks" on Dudley weren't amusing and I really found him to be a bully. More power to Dudley for being such a good guy and so accepting of him.
This was a short, quick read and if you're looking for a book about Christmas, this should definitely be added to your TBR list! As with many novellas, this had more of a HFN ending.
Rating: 4 stars
Scrooged Over is a fun story combining Grinch with The Griswalds. I loved the back and forth banter between the two, and you could see the underlying like as well. I thought I had the story all figured out but the little twist was a pleasant surprise.
If you like Christmas stories, radio hosts, lights garland, tinsel, and mistakes, you will love this one.
Deke hates everything what has to do with Christmas and Dudley loves everything what has to do with Christmas.
Dudley works hard to create a perfect Christmas for his gramps and himself it could be the last gramps will remember.
What he doesn't know Deke is trying to undermine his Christmas.
Dudley has an eye for Deke and doesn't know how he feels in return.
When they set up a blind date for the winner at a contest and Dudley will meet the blind date he hopes it will be Deke. But Christmas isn't working his way this year.
Who would have a finger in this....
Do know this is a Christmas story :)
