Item description for Boo Humbug: Christmas Is Scarier Than You Think (Boo #4) by Rene Gutteridge...
Overview Its Christmastime in Skary, Indiana, and the town is planning an original production of "A Christmas Carol" with a horror spin. As showtime arrives, things go awry and its up to the actors to pull off the improv of all improvs and convince the community to embrace the meaning of the Christmas season.
Publishers Description It's Christmastime in Skary, Indiana, but the holiday season has been hijacked by maverick director Lois Stepaphanopolis as she attempts to bring her horror-ific vision of "A Christmas Carol" to life. But the holly-decked path from page to stage is a thorny one, as Lois attempts to rally her skeptical cast, including new father Wolfe Boone, and then she learns that her reluctant marketing director, Alfred Tennison, is truly a Christmas Scrooge. Alfred's grassroots marketing plan proves more than successful as the buzz builds that Skary should anticipate an overflowing audience for their opening night- but a crucial miscommunication leaves the visiting theatergoers expecting of a "very "different Christmas production. As chaos ensues, can the actors pull off an improv miracle -- and can the Skary community convince their own Scrooge to embrace the true meaning of Christmas?

Loved It!!! Jan 22, 2010
I've never read any of this author's books other than her more serious ones (which I loved, as well). I picked this one up (not knowing it was the 4th in a series, but it didn't matter) not knowing what to expect. I'd heard they were lighter reading with humor and I don't often find those type enjoyable. I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised. This was a well written book full of fun characters set in a quirky, enjoyable town. I'll definitely go find the rest of the series, and plan on starting from #1 from now on. I'd highly recommend this set of books, if they're all as good as the last one!
A delight! May 15, 2009
I really enjoy the characters in this series! It' been a while since I read 1-3, and it was easy enough to pick up where I left off. Never know what to expect (except the unexpected!) from Skary, Indiana!
Too Late to Review? Jan 30, 2008
Here it is almost February, I finally got a chance to sit down and read this book that I've been itching to dig into. I'm glad I didn't wait until next year's Christmas season. Wolf and his wife have too much lure for me. I've read every book in the series. Although it's after the season, I still enjoyed the Christmas tale. Boo is still may favorite of the series, but I will encourage my reading buddies to read this right after Thanksgiving next year.
Boo Humbug ~ Reviewed Jan 14, 2008
Wolfe and Oliver are in the throws of fatherhood as Christmas approaches. Ainsley and Melb's their wives are doing the best they can to create a loving atmosphere in their homes and celebrate Christmas on very little sleep. The holidays can be so stressful and full of misunderstandings. This story looks at family life during the holidays and how those families interact in their community.
The story is fun, and filled with the drama that happens off the stage as the actors try to catch the crazy vision that Lois (their director) has for this traditional play. No matter how hard they try to practice and think the cast has the play down pat God steps in and has His way with the show. I was surprised at Lois and what she allows God to do in her life and the lives of those around her. This story shows that God uses the SIMPLE things of life to touch people's hearts and change lives. This story really touches on the real meaning of Christmas. I really liked this story and the loveable characters. This is the first Boo book that I have read. It's made me want to read the others.

#4 is good Jan 12, 2008
I absolutely love the Boo Series. This one was a little different than the first three. I thought it ended kind of wierd, but it was definately worth the reading.
